I don't get reporting people. Sticks and stones you know?

I hate censorship of any kind.
I agree to a point, but I think the TOS keep this place somewhat civil. I did report one person for a pattern of pretty vile stuff. I didn't know about the ignore feature at the time or I would have used it instead.

Of course it's true. I mean, it's kinda hard to avoid looking in the mirror at least once a day.

And I'm sure you know that Europeans were laughing at us for weeks because of that incident. I mean - we had Congressional Hearings for two weeks on Janet Jackson's breast! Talk about wasteful government.

As said to me by a very flamoyantly gay friend "It doesn't matter if you're gay, straight, male or female.... boobs are awesome!"

I sent you a pm. You will laugh, I'm telling you. I forgot to tell you that the person first used the rep points to tell me I was inflammatory too. That was really funny!

That is funny. I haven't done that, but it has crossed my mind. I've figured that I can probably more easily get away with insulting someone if I increase that user's reputation at the same time.

It's totally true in my life experience, and seen too often on this board.....they need to hate something so being easily disgusted gives ample fuel to add to the "HATE FIRE". This statement is a generalization and my opinion....do I need a link??? LOL.

Like when you championed John McCain who married his 23 year old mistress at the ripe old age of 44. Left his injured wife and 3 small kids for Cindy McCain

You wanted an adultress as First Lady but have no problem telling two adults they can't get married?
