    The question arises because people have a tendency to connote intolerance with something negative.
    Intolerance to what? Intolerance to bigotry? Intolerance for drunks? Intolerance of crackheads? Intolerance of drunk drivers? Intolerance of foul-mouthed adolescents? Intolerance of pre-emptive military invasions? What??

    Why in heck don't you just, you know, start a thread by saying exactly what you mean instead of some kind of vague question that could be interpreted a hundred different ways?

    This is actually the key point. Nothing is absolute. Is discrimination bad? Well, if I was hiring for a job, I would discriminate against those I felt where not able to do the job properly, as does every one else. Can discrimination be bad? Of course. Is intolerance bad? Of course not. Can it be used badly? Of course. That is the fundamental flaw with this thread. It works from absolutes, when very little is absolute.

    It's apparent that I don't perceive you as someone with a sense of humor actually, particularly since I've heard your "funny" argument presented seriously in the past.

    He does not think you have a sense of humor. Since he has heard your laughable argument before as a serious argument.
