    Why don't you make a poll about my emotions?

    Why don't you take your personal beef with me to the basement? I'm sure you'd find some trash talkers there who would enjoy ripping me to shreds with profanity and disrespect.

    Meanwhile, the topic of this thread was whether 'racist' literature should be banned. The article, from a legitimate news source, talks about an older series which contained stereotypes of Africans that are outdated and racist by today's standards.

    Do you think this type of thing should be banned?

    These books shouldn't be banned. People can get offended about anything, and if they're that immature then they are just as bad as the immature racists themselves. Everything has some quality to it that might offend a person.

    I can do it up here. Just as much fun and it only gets me gigged once or twice. Nothing to really care about. Besides, this way, everybody gets to see just how ignorant you are.

    You're a troll. I give you 4 months until you get banned.

    You are taking this personally. It's really better not to hold grudges and get angry. Just click on the threads you like, and ignore the ones you don't like. Is that too difficult for you?

    Apparently so...

    I wish you well, and peace be with you.

    Very true. Everyone has a different standard as to what is offensive.

    How would banning it in schools be considered infringing on free speech? You still have the right to write that book, read that book, talk about that book, or have your kids read the book outside of school. Having your book shown in schools is not a right guaranteed by the Constitution.

    Not really. What I am a little befuddled by is why you've been allowed to troll the forum with ridiculous threads and stupid questions for so long.

    You're making yourself sound more important than you actually are.

    Apparently so...

    I wish you well, and peace be with you.
    Why don't you make a poll on how many people think you're an annoying troll?
