Completely uncalled for.

It has nothing to do with his religion or race.

Well if you expect just a single peson on this board to take notice of that you guys might consider starting to enforce the rules regarding offensive behavior. People are offensive because they get away with it.

How people comport themselves and what they get away with in the PWL is one main reason I rarely go in there and even more rarely post anything.

While we've gone around and around in Simon's thread about removing non-technical threads/posts/etc I think having a PWL (at least in its current form) or allowing political discussions detracts from this forum more then it may add an avenue to discuss one's political causes and/or concerns.

"COMPORT": conduct oneself; behave. A pretty formal word, but a very elegant word.

One, I never said it didn’t. What I was responding to here, however, was the implication that Red Rocket had cited ‘Zionists’ and ‘right-wing theist militarists’ to be on ‘opposite sides’, when he had actually portrayed them as being on the ‘same side’.

Two, I wouldn’t call ‘nonsense’ offensive.

Rubbish.

Just picking up where TI left off.
