    Are there demographics in England and Wales at more risk of homicide than I am?
    Individuals can not be reasoned out of beliefs they were not reasoned into.

    One of the great things about this forum is that I get to read the ideas, ideologies, and sometimes idiocy from overseas. We have enough trouble getting access to views beyond our pundits and our parties without silencing views from beyond the 50 states. I absolutely love learning from Europeans, South Americans, islanders, people from the Middle East or Asia. All they can do is broaden our perspective.

    You should read the first sentence more closely.

    "One of the great things about this forum is that I get to read the ideas, ideologies, and sometimes idiocy from overseas." I know what it says because I wrote it. I mean every word. Most people in England understand what an idea is, and an ideology is, and what idiocy is. Very few have not confronted plenty of all three within their ranks as well as ours. The OP is a perfect example of the latter.

    Is that clear enough to you?

    Guess where we think flogger gets classified in your first sentence.

    My post does not classify posters. It classifies content. You are going to have to use some other post to insult him with. My intention was clearly not to insult posters. So you select the content, and I will be happy to let you know which category, if any of them ( not designed to be all inclusive list of categories) I think the material belongs in. Its not up to you to pick for me.
