Hi MS04, looks like we keep bumping into each other.
It amazes me how much power weaker minds give to words. They do their best to make words illegal.
UnAmerican in every way. I feel sorry for those people because they'll be crying about their favorite words before long.
I am always amazed at idiots that feel like it is ok to use violence as a weapon against words.

Obviously you believe in some folks having rights and not others. If I call a person that is retarded, "retarded" thats because she is. You may use politically correct language, and thats fine, but for you to condone violence on another person because they practice their 1st amendment rights is total bullsh!t.

Sorry they do not "force" people to use their real names here, and I can see now why they dont because asshats like you would think nothing of hitting another human being in the head with a crowbar becuase they somehow offended you sorry ass.

Like I said, if topix bothers you stay off of the site loser.

Why you post those pics openly on the Internet if your afraid for their safety? You are responsible. You are a threat to your own.
I agree. Some people put their private life online and then get annoyed when people comment negatively. Do not put up pics, your name, etc., if you don't want people to judge you. In fact, just typing your opinion allows people to judge you. So if you can't handle negative, cruel or even abusive comments, stay out of forums and do not post on-line.

I personally will not be abusive but I've had many of those comments. Who cares? They don't know me and I don't know them, I don't care what they think. Why do people take this so personally and then decide they want to change the forums or even the entire internet? If you don't like it, stay away, or go to a heavy moderated forum where that will not happen. It's simple.

Yeah, that would be nice.

But I don't think you really want to. I think you really just want control over who can post where.

If I'm wrong, show me.

Where I "told" you or where I asked you why you were there?

I believe the comment was related to the total boredom you're experiencing while exchanging greetings and salutations. It appears when you're really bored, you seek out old threads to bump or make snide comments to me, presumably hoping I'll fight with you.

Of course, this is only based upon your actions and not any real insight into your psyche ;)
