...and therein lies the problem. Some people don't know when to stop reading or know when to exit. They are so caught up in their belief or ideology that they feel compelled to defend it here in a private forum as if the world will come to an immediate end if they don't. Their tunnel vision blinds them to the fact that there are others with alternative views, and instead of accepting that fact, they despise it. They often cast the first stone, and then cry foul when the stone is caught and thrown back at them. For some reason, they never see their own comments and replies as offensive to those with alternative views, but have no problem calling the comments and replies of others as being offensive to them. Then they hit the report button to have a mod come in and punish the reported person, but then get ticked off when we look at the totality of the situation and find that they were the instigators. Having said that, here's a reminder: There is a warning/disclaimer at the top of threads like this that basically states -participate at your own risk-. In laymans terms, that means there is a good chance that something contained therein will offend or tick you off. You can decide to read the comments and replies therein or select another topic to read. The choice is always "YOURS" to make. If you opt to enter, wear your big boy and big girl pants and understand that the things you state may be vigorously challenged and you may even be ridiculed for it. If you don't have the discipline or inner strength to deal with stuff like that, do everyone, including yourself, a favor and stay away from threads that have warnings and/or disclaimers associated with them.
