    The damage has already been done, KC.

    And no, this is not "pointless anti-OWS whining."

    Again, it's all in the example. He hasn't even cursed and yet, thunder is supposed to be attacked? Mocked, maybe. But definitly not a personal attack, lest Thunder makes it so.

    The OP has absolutely, literally, zero point to it. The article is about the cafe owner whining about barricades being up and hindering his business to the extent that he might have to close, when the reality is that those barricades haven't existed for some time. So where's the story here?

    sure he is. he is accusing me of having a job that doesn't require real work, and having no skills of actual work. he does this left & right, week after week, in many threads.

    Well, as far as he is concerned, you probably don't. That's just his opinion though, that is not a direct attack on you.

    That's bogus, partisan hackery. The guy lost 25% of his staff because of the OWS a month ago, and now he may have to close his business because of it. Perhaps you've never had a business, and have no idea how such damage could affect a business in this economy, eh?

    Tourists haven't been going to the area because of the OWS. He's had to fire 21 employees and lost 30% of his sales because of the OWS. Now, he may lose his business because of them.

    You may not perceive any damage done to the business because of the OWS, but that does not excuse you for ignoring it.

    No, it's not, it's what the owner said in your article. Look:

    Marc Epstein, owner of the Milk [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]Street [COLOR=blue !important]Cafe[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR], tells FoxNews.com that authorities have not taken down barricades around Zuccotti Park and along Wall Street despite the dwindling number of protesters since they were evicted from their encampment two weeks ago, keeping consumer foot traffic and his profits to a minimum.

    This all stemmed from the OWS. Therefore, the OWS is to blame for this. I will also place blame on the authorities for not removing the barricades sooner, yet those barricades would not be needed if the OWS had actually been peaceful and not ****** up the city.
