    Wow! All hell is breaking loose. Sounds like they really turned their backs this weekend.
     
  6. They are probably working on some of the houses they burnt down or that became what ever it was owned.

    And promotionals might be because of vet reward changes maybe???

    Just a total guess but I am sure it will all be back up soon enough. But it all could have something to do with next publish.

    I don't find it offensive but I really can't figure out why people use the word all the time. It's something high school kids say. Maybe they are high school kids.

    Moist of us are about on that level.

    Frankly it's depressing.

  15. In the sense he used it no I don't, as it was not a "YOU ARE" or "THEY ARE" it was not aimed at anyone in a derogatory or insulting manor.

    But I can understand some people may find offense due to there own real life sensibility on the word and to the people with disabilities it is usually used to refer to or your sensitiveness to that if you prefer.

    I personally don't like words like ****** or spastic or any derogatory meant phrase to describe someone..but I am not overly sensitive to others using it in sentences like he did....more when aimed at a person with disabilities or an infliction of some kind and when someone does it thinking they are funny by belittling them.

    Got to remember different poeple different cultures. The Simpsons movie, for example, used the word ****** and that was fine in the USA however this is highly offensive in the UK, and thus the word removed.

    Ignorance is rife on these boards, so words being said out of context is to be expected.

    Nope, I don't find it offensive. And for the curious, I have every reason to find it offensive, and still dont. It is not a word that is any longer used in the *developmentally disabled* sense.

    Are you kidding? Are you really that sensitive?

    Definition of ********: "A slowing down or hindering of progress; a delay". So "********" is the perfect word for this situation.

    Next thing you know, we won't be able to use the words "Black", "Yellow", or "White" because someone might find those words offensive as well.

    kaleb,I have to agree 100%, I think most want to be petty and very childish by taking certain words to extrme as offensive, I'ma middleaged american vetran who in performance of my duties in defending this country and her freedom of speech,I had to grow "avery thick skin" to insults" most people in our freedom of democracy have grown to complacent with the ability to whine to ahigher power that something is bothersome, all I have to tell them is grow aspine little chickens or the fox is going to eat you.
