This is the internet.
 
If you get easily offended by words on a screen, you probably have no business here.


That is all.

Sir-Ex 04-12-2012 08:17 AM

Exactly. Someone say something offensive to me.

Sage Tree 04-12-2012 08:34 AM

Something patronizing? Would that suffice?


:lol:


;)

The days of 'thick skin' to survive are dying out.

Evolve.

If you don't get offended great.

Some do.

That doesn't mean they shouldn't be here.

I'm more of the opinion that if you aren't willing to work and be part of a community then you shouldn't be here.... yet many who don't are still here.

That's balance. One moderating to every 1000 LoLz is pretty fair I think.

What is the point in getting offended by words on a fucking screen? Does it serve some purpose? Do people do it to convince themselves that they are still "good"? Whatever the fuck that means.

I would like a rational answer please. Not "that's people for you". Fuck that.

farmergiles 04-12-2012 08:47 AM

Why is it up to you what people should and shouldn't get offended by?

You seem a little offended :D.

Jester4yall 04-12-2012 08:49 AM

What is the point of this thread? Hasn't this been said 4ish times already within the last week?

And this....


It's the balance man. Sometimes the line between lolz and insults gets crossed.

deadhead94 04-12-2012 09:00 AM

Why should I have to work around other people's irrational bullshit?

Jester4yall 04-12-2012 09:03 AM

Can be more specific? sounds like you are holding back

Sir-Ex 04-12-2012 09:05 AM

Because they exist.

Jester4yall 04-12-2012 09:10 AM

Clears so much up.

Sir-Ex 04-12-2012 09:15 AM

Hmm?


I said 'because they exist' because having to deal with people is just part of life. Or did you confuse me with DH?

Did you ever consider that people feel like this about you?


What we do here is clip some from the left wing and some from the right....
Very little clipping at it were. Finding a balanced way to have more freedom as well as freedom from. That is what community is imo... you join a group and shed some of your extremism for the sake of balanced and well rounded community. There is lot here that goes unfettered, so why freak out when there is some fettering on the other extreme once in a while?

Did it sound sarcastic? I actually agree.. :cool:

Sir-Ex 04-12-2012 09:25 AM

hahaha yeah I totally thought that was sarcasm :p

Bondi Bad Dog 04-12-2012 10:49 AM

so if I called you up and verbally abuse you, that's ok?
these days we comunicate more and more electronically.

words on the internet are forms of comunication.

words on a forum like this are more than just words from strangers. we are a comunity here.
even tho I donnt know you irl, I know you for over 5 years, we have spoken, argued, fought, etc for over half a decade.

you should take this matter more seriously.

Yahooka "IS" the internet for most of us.

Sir-Ex 04-12-2012 11:06 AM

Hmm, good post Bad Dog.

moketweed 04-12-2012 11:16 AM

Seems there is still hope for everybody..... 2 words... fucking phew....
