I dunno, i think if its offensive to someone or somones, the poster should do the right thing and delete the post. If they do not, the mods should do it.

I am with OG broe to a certain extent, that if people complain about it, why isnt it just taking it down. It has nothing to do with "oh the majority thinks its ok, therefore its ok" tells me that society has a long way to go for progression. If we always sided with what the majority wanted, women, minorities, homosexuals, will be at even greater disadvantages. Sometimes you have to do what is right, rather than what is popular.

The point is, a community listens to one another. If i ever post something that offends even 1 person (just 1), i will take it down right away. I don't get why we should all do the same. I think respecting everyone (not just the majority) should be the goal of a community. Doesn't mean that stuff will change, we all joke like 90% of the time anyways. I know migya meant that to be a joke, but it backlash and offended more then just a few people.

If this issue is still going to be debate, then take it off, and end this argument.

You can pick separate quotes as much as you like but that doesn't show the whole situation, doesn't take the whole lot into account, the whole lot I wrote. Look at the whole thread and I've explained myself well and shouldn't have to over and over. The same complaining poster has been after me from thread to thread, picking out quotes of mine, some just on basketball, for years now and really, at times, has contributed nothing more to the forum instead of just statements refuting someone else's (not always me, ask uptempo) negative opinion about the team situation and ending such responses with :!: and also nothing more than blind optimism, seems innocent but not coupled with the fact he picks out others who aren't so optimistic.

Many of you new members weren't around to witness what I just explained, but the older members like TMC, xbay, d1mex and maybe bada were.


As far as what Crackerz wrote :

That totally depends on what the issue is that that ONE person was offended about. That one person might just be some old man that doesn't like televisions, for example (something stupid like that), and doesn't want any advertising in the local shopping center about televisions, does that mean that advertisement should be taken down? Absolutely not!

Again, it is not so black and white, but the issue here is that obviously a few (as I've only seen a few on here say that they really didn't like the issue and what I wrote) are too sensitive to that sort of talk and so I have to be more careful about going on about such topics. I admit, I am quite open, not to offend anyone ofcourse, but to communicate, so I forget somewhat that others might not like such talk on such topics. ATLEAST I CAN TAKE IT ON MYSELF and admit that and though I don't think such topics should be totally banned or tabooed, I will endeavor to avoid such topics.

Main point is, not so black and white and everyday life shows us that

That wasn't directed at you in particular Quazza, I actually agree with you. However it was just a dumb argument.

Mods, ban!!!

you'd prolly want me ban, cuz ur argument is moronic

but it doesnt offend you. the name that is. And i dont call on ban's if u can actually read what i wrote quazza. just editing or deleting posts if there offensive. Or maybe even just clear it up, as words or phrases mean different stuff. i was telling you what I would do.

Crackers are a food item. Ever hear of them? there tasty snacks. My name sounds like Ritz, a very popular cracker brand. so i add the z instead of the s to get that rep of that brand.

I'm with migya here. You just can't cater to everybody's wishes. You'll always find somebody that has a problem with anything that has been posted, and that's why the majority rule has to apply. That and measuring the intentions of the post. Most often than not, these issues are just big misunderstandings that can be solved just by talking, like we're doing right now.

excuse me, but only we can say "cracker". If you ain't white, you can't.

And if you slip up and say it by accident, you have to say "cracka" not "crackER"
