Um, this isn't to protect *MY* feelings, or that of any moderator. Frankly I could give a shit.i'm just saying no matter how you dress it up, you'll always get some sissy crying to mommy (aka moderators) about how the bad fellow poster hurt his widdle feelings.
But this is an effort to get this community refocused on what brought us here to begin with. If you wish to have such conversations, there is PM's and other boards you can have. I see nothing wrong with keeping conversations focused on the topic. Yes I do know that there is a 'offtopic' forum, and perhaps we should just mark that one un-moderated. use at your own risk.
