    You have the opportunity to respond to the weird critiques with those of your own, Dude.

    That's exactly what I did. You say I'm looking at it wrong, but won't explain how.

    The more verbose version of "You're a poopy head" is not a critique.

    Already answered this in my first post with a single, common English word. There's no way you don't know it. Read the words I wrote. I have very limited patience for repeating myself.

    Perhaps the first word in the nom de plume is playing a role.

    Rolling Stone magazine retracted its article about a brutal gang rape at a University of Virginia fraternity after the release of a report on Sunday that concluded the widely discredited piece was the result of failures at every stage of the process.

    The report, published by the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism and commissioned by Rolling Stone, said the magazine failed to engage in “basic, even routine journalistic practice” to verify details of the ordeal that the magazine’s source, identified only as Jackie, described to the article’s author, Sabrina Rubin Erdely.
    Well that's gonna be a lawsuit.

    "Culture", I presume? You do know that culture is created by people, right? So my question still stands... WHO is sexually repressing anyone?

    *sigh* So you've just found the word, which is a behavioral concept and not a personal one, and you're still asking me "who"?

    This is why I've been sticking to the silly side of DP lately. It's less traumatic to my forehead and my furniture. I'm headed back there again.
