Some people still have jobs to be at.
If you are going to publicly criticize people for incorrect spelling you might want to use proper grammar, punctuation and sentence structure. http://www.blackfootstudios.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/dunce.gif (broken link)

Bottom line it is allowed and this is a private site so they can allow what they wish. they do not have to take in consideration anyones thoughts that it is an insult.
So I have come to the conclusion not to fight fire with fire call the Obama supporters what they are Obamabaggers. The act of Obamabagging is the same act as teabagging just obama is doing the act to his supporters

So, the very recently created 'teabagger' term is, in your mind, on par re symbolic importance with a crucifix. Interesting how the mind of a conservative works...
