Default Lamers,Flamers & Political Correctness

Okay, the last two days have sucked big time. Work's been a pain since I'm splittin' time inbetween the Design Dept, and the Pressroom. I'm not goin' back to running a press full-time. Nossir.
Then, when I get here last night, I see a couple of posters making comments about a post someone else made. I don't give a damn what somebody posts about unless it's a malicious personal attack on a regular visitor here, or breakin' the rules. I think the idea of using a post to let off steam is terrific. I do it myself. That's why I'm making this diary entry. Some people need to realize that in this age of "Political Correctness" we've gone way too freaking far. Using the word "challenged" with an adjective is fucking moronic. Being sensitive is not. Making a big fucking deal about how sensitive you are is. Last time I checked, I was in the United States. Being from the U.S. (I know we all aren't), I'm going to keep posting the damned way I want until I'm either banned for being an asshole or caught with a blowtorch in my hand, chasing around some Junior Member who's screaming, "Okay, I'm not 1337 !". If you don't like what somebody posts, fine reply to it fucking once. Ya' ain't gotta read 'em all. If you read a post, and you're smart enough (yeah, this is gonna be tough), maybe you can tell from the tone of the post what kind of emotional state the poster was in when he composed it. We're all human. We all make mistakes. We just need to quit judging others. I try not to, but it's tough sometimes. Read a post carefully before trying to bring out the torch, or even a match. I try, I don't always succeed, but I do try.
Whew. I feel better now.
Remind me to send GamerX a christmas card.

Well put man. That's my biggest complaint - people act very condoning and superior when they see this sort of thing, yet who are they to talk down to anyone? Everyone has the right to speak what's on their minds, and everyone ALSO has the right to ignore what they don't like. No one forces them to read these posts, they choose to - and by reading them, they get all worked up and think that it's their civic duty to reply with, "that's not right." Again, my only question - Who ARE you?

Man, this blowing off steam thing works

Yeah there are way to many people walking around with a pin up their ass, I think it's just an excuse most of the time so people can be a total asshole and get away with it, I like everyone and about a third of the people I meet I can't even talk to because they sit there and analyze every single word looking for something to bitch about, maybe schools should have a class in Desensitisation and then they'ld know the difference between a joke, small talk, or an actual insult, at work most of us are totally ruding each other out and we're always laughing our asses off but the last job I had you couldn't talk about the weather without someone complaining to the supervisor about it*I hate backstabbers*, and lastly good topic Flash.

Drop em, just don't hang with them, if they're that anal about a conversation then they're not really your friends.
