I didn't say it was against the rules. I said slapping your head and giving someone the hand is childish. Do you really think the stallion comment was so stupid that you needed to slap your head and give him the hand? Do you communicate that way in real life?

Language is all that separates humanity from the beasts in the fields. Proper, nee exemplary, use of language is all that distinguishes a superior presenter from one with lesser gifts, in the context of an anonymous online interaction. I'm in agreement with King's Gambit that, regardless of gypsychics grace and diplomacy in the handling of Nativeson's gaffe, harm was done. Future historians, sifting through the radioactive ashes of a post apocalypse United States of America, will note the timing of the introduction of the phrase "it's all good" into English vernacular, and the beginnings of the social death spiral towards nuclear Armageddon.

Nice attempt at eloquence, but your content is sorely lacking. Much more separates us from the beasts of the field than language. A prefrontal cortex that permits moral reasoning, for example. As far as online "presenters," what is said is far more important than how it is said. Your post is a great example. Even the best presentation of a bad idea is still a bad idea.

Either way, what does any of this have to do with a headslap and "talk to the hand" emoticon? Is that exemplary language? Also, no harm was done with the use of the word "stallion." In order for there to be harm, there must be a victim. There was no victim.

I will say this though, different cultures use different words in different ways, if that makes any sense to you'll. I grew up in "Urban America" and in my culture the word "Stallion" is one of many words used to give compliment to a very curvy woman. Also in the "Urban Dictionary" (which you can find online) one of the definitions given for the word "Stallion" is "a fine woman that's thick in all the right places and is strong mentally and physically. Now tell me how is that not a compliment to a woman? But then again a person like myslef might need to be more careful when using urban lingo (depending on the setting) b/c everyone may not be familiar with it, ESPECIALLY a person who did not grow up in Urban America or who doesn't have friends who grew up in Urban America. I do respect what everyone is saying though.

Be at peace... son. I for one was just having some good clean fun at your expense. On a scale of 1 - 10 with 10 being the placement of a dirty bomb in an Animal Shelter and 1 being the successful separation of conjoined twins you rated a 7. We'll heal. Go, and Sin no more.

Yep - Stallion in my culture only refers to males, based on a Stallion being the lead male horse. A woman would certainly consider it an insult. Well,.... most women anyway.
