Not here though. But yeah, it's a great story. Drinking and having a good time with a man who very well might have tried to kill my father or vice versa. And sleeping with his daughter.

Get an argument. I call bullshIt on your ridiculous "harms". The funniest one is the roving gangs of young men high on testosterone wreaking havoc, raping and pillaging, searching for wives! Prlceless. And the one rich guy hogs all the wives one is the second funniest.
Are you disputing the experts, Flunkie? It's all right here: http://www.courts.gov.bc.ca/jdb-txt/SC/11/15/...

27] A reference in this forum enables the participants to create an evidentiary record impossible in the typical appellate reference. The participants in the present proceeding embraced that opportunity and compiled a record that is remarkable not only for its size, but also for the breadth and diversity of its contents. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to say that the record embodies the bulk of contemporary academic research into polygamy.

[28] Much of the evidence comprises affidavits and expert reports. Over 90 such are before me. In large measure, these were exchanged and filed with the Court in advance of the hearing according to a schedule directed by the Court. Approximately 22 of the affiants and experts were then examined and cross-examined during the hearing phase of the proceeding.

[29] The expert witnesses represent a broad range of disciplines including anthropology, psychology, sociology, law, economics, family demography, history and theology. The caliber and breadth of knowledge of these experts is impressive. Some undertook original research specifically for this reference. Others are clinical experts who offer case study observations from their practices. Yet others have studied aspects of polygamy relevant to their particular disciplines for years.

There is no need for uncouth vulgarity along with the hate such as exemplified by Poof. Also his disrespect of women is outrageous!

Un-moderated forums are a fine example of free speech and to be celebrated, but of course there is the unavoidable drawback of oafish buffoons and galoots like Poof using the free speech to spread hate and bigotry.
