Really funny.

This stuff is real easy when you don't know anyone like this in person. Like it's fun to tell racist jokes if you don't know black people, or bash gay people if you don't know any.

Ah another liberal defending enforcing their ptrscription in the use of a viable word with variable context.

Since I never offered it in the context you decry that I did, you are now righteously offended and must draw the sword of defense in support of your own ignorance?

And yes, I have two brothers, one who is challenged and my wife is handicapped.

In a word: Go fuck yourself..,

I think the first poster just demonstrated your original point. Attacking a deliberately distorted version of a position fails to constitute an attack on the actual position.

Yes,I was going to point that out but rightly assumed that the comparison would be lost due to the source "proclaiming from On High" than from reason...

Bravo! Another sterling example of the Straw Man argument. We mix these comments with mud and we'll have some decent bricks in no time.

Man, has this blog degenerated from a great gaming focused site that threw in cool and interesting non-gaming topics to one that seems more focused on pontificating, name calling, doom pronouncing, and general high-horse surliness (putting things too nicely). It's not my blog, so you will do what you will of course. But I'm out. There is too much of this kind of crap in every other form of media out there. Sorry to see such discourse in this once great forum.
