Yup. It's posts like that which make me wonder why I bother with this subforum in the first place.
Ask everybody here, and everybody's got the answer. And every answer is different. I knew the minute that I brought it up, the fingers were going to start flying, and that I would get a fair share of them pointed at me.
I'm sticking to my guns here. I reject the notion that the members of this forum don't bear some personal responsibility for the tone of this place. If you want this forum to survive, then I suggest you take a little pride in this place, and speak up when someone starts getting vulgar, regardless of politics. If you guys can't find it in you to show that you care on that basic level, then this forum is more of a distraction than it's worth and it's time to cut it from the healthy vine.
