If that means working, then you work. If that means staying at home, then you stay at home. In your case, you have to work, you don't have a choice, so you're just going to have to suck it up and do it."

    I'm really glad, ultimately, that I wasn't really reliant on my ex financially. When I divorced him, I was fully capable of taking care of the kids on my own and keeping them in their house where they'd lived for the past 7 years. That was important.

    I am against heckling and trolling but humor should always be allowed as long as it is not mean spirited.

    And people voted 36 to 1 that your attempt to censor speech on the board was wrong. In fact, I think that people answered you quite strongly.

    But that didn't stop you...here you are making another passive aggressive attempt at censorship in the guise of protecting people from hate speech.

    But, it would be progress if these thread were at lease kept clean of heckling, trolling ....
    Thankfully, you aren't a moderator here. But of course, you sure have a lot of ideas about how things should be done, and you've only been here a week. We're so lucky you're here to fix things that aren't broken.

    So, to be perfectly clear:

    I'm against censorship and posters who want to control what other posters post. Most ofus are.

    If a guy wants to post a thread like this, it's an opportunity to watch free speech at work. Just like Jerry's stupid comments in threads like these. Jerry makes himself look like an ass by posting what he does, and other posters usually vehemently condemn his biases.

    Observers learn that saying stupid stuff = consequences and public humiliation.

    That's much better than censoring things because everyone gains something. Even Jerry.

My husband physically can't do it (injured during his previous deployment) so I'm the only one whose around to step up to the plate and take care of business.

    I'm a bit slow, I'm nervous and unsure of the quality of my work but I'm doing pretty well and learning more and more with each DIY project I take on (this is my 2nd bathroom) - I could either sit and grouse and bitch like a pansy or man up and deal with it and get it done.
    PM me if you come up against anything that has you scratching your head. I've probably dealt with it before.

    Right now I'm in the middle of a complete gut remodel job on the house my parents are moving into.

    the only people that should be censored, are those that advocate censorship.

    If you add roller skates, I think you have a scene from Monty Python's meaning of life.
