Outrage between right and left groups has always been selective. Authoritative academia, snark and selective commission of the english language is typically the purview of the left. Authoritative morality based on immediate culture rather than ethics and/or learned inspection of their personal beliefs is typically the purview of the right.

The danger to both parties is a continuing trend towards implementing the foundations for a thought police rather than a rights police. Even more dangerous is an assumption that the thoughts we assume to be policing are accurate. This blow-up seems to highlight many of these phenomena.

If it weren't for name calling, the Tbox would be reduced to arguments/debates over controversial subjects. (sarcasm)

Would also cut thread lengths by about 70%. Most threads like this one go from OP subject to name calling within the first 2 pages, then thread is derailed and all hell breaks loose. Nature of the beast here. If you want true discourse and debate, you are probably barking up the wrong tree here on the Huddle.

for once, i agree

pretty much everyone does it. basically any topic that goes beyond 2 pages will have it at some point.

kurb is a poo admin so the alleged rule is only selectively enforced to further insulate himself and some tubby sexist*** from reality

***this could literally be anyone and is in no way a personal attack on any particular person who may be demonstrably fat and/or prone to blaming rape victims for their rape

That cat reminds me of peyote for some reason.

Wow, this thread became somewhat amusing after twenty pages. Only goes to show you, never give up on a thread! BTW, G5 was only expressing his displeasure (in the best way he knew how, I'm sure) about individuals attempting to pigeon hole him as some kind of right wing extremist.
