Newly coined term, "internet fury"? A sad article...

KynloStephen66515:
To Stephen66515 I would say that there is no need to use that type of language on this forum. Opinions can be expressed without the use of vulgar language.

Vulgar?

As defined by who exactly?

Firstly...I don't even recall commenting on this thread o.0

Secondly, I like to use all the words offered to me by the English language.  Those of you who declared words "vulgar" "crude" or "inappropriate" need to step back, and realise...they are words.  Words are words are words are words.

Just because you and a small sub-set of others deem something to be bad...does that make it bad...truly?

People say eating meat is bad...should we all stop?

People say being black is bad...should all black people stop being black?

People say jews are bad...does that mean they should start spending more money?

there is no need

A wiser man than me once said:

It's not necessary to have coloured socks, it's not necessary for this cushion to be here, but is anyone going to write in and say 'I was shocked to see that cushion there, it really wasn't necessary'? No, things not being necessary is what makes life interesting -the little extras in life.

But...instead of just quoting said wise man...watch/listen here: (Chances are, you will find this offencive)



I offer no apology as I have done nothing that could possibly offend any sound minded person.

Everybody at DC knows what I am like, everybody knows my style of writing, and I think the majority of people know I won't stop swearing : ;D

40hz:
@grandpastan - you might try this out. Easier to change how your browser works than it is to try to get somebody to change how they post.  :)

-----------------------

@Stephen - you know I think the world of you, but c'mon - point taken. Stop doubling-down. :P ;)

tomos:
Stephen I think you're overreacting a bit [defensive]

grandpastan has a point - you understandably dont agree with it [I dont necessarily agree with it], but you're getting a bit carried away there with some of your comparisions.

mouser:
Stephen - I think there's an issue of simple respect for your fellow forum members and human beings.  You don't have to agree or necessarily change  your behavior if someone says that something you did offended them -- but you also don't spit in their face and tell them their opinion doesn't matter.

I like what 40hz said:
Try not to offend. Try not to be so easily offended.

That's what we expect of people here.  And we try to use that as our guide rather than have a strict rules with people playing games to try to see how close they can get to breaking them.

And let me also point out that when there is an interesting thread with an interesting issue to discuss, it's a real shame when it gets derailed into a discussion of off-topic stuff.  It's fun sometimes but not every post has to be an excuse to post some random video or anecdote that takes us spiraling off topic.

I like to spiral as much as anyone, but what I have tried to do and suggest for others is to copy/quote the portion then "spiral it" in one of the three "Spiral threads" - either the humor NSFW one, or one of the basement political threads.
