and finally....the sane one weighs in....
[MoriartyIsRumbling] Actually, in defense of Zim and Q (yes, I know... not a popular stance), I'd say EVERYONE in here is a humorless bag of fuck when it comes to any political comment.
[MoriartyIsRumbling] I think both of them, and yoda, take a huge amount of open abuse.
[MoriartyIsRumbling] And I think if you were really in a room with them talking to them like that, you'd be ashamed of yourself.
[MoriartyIsRumbling] And if you weren't, you should be.
[MoriartyIsRumbling] People are fucking cunts to conservatives in here, as if their views make it okay.
[MoriartyIsRumbling] There is no such thing as open political discourse in here.
JennGirl applauds in Moriarty's general direction
[MoriartyIsRumbling] It's just people being horrible to each other because they think differently.
[dmann] Im just tired of no one being able to say so much as a silly joke without getting jumped on....
[MoriartyIsRumbling] Dmann... you went off.
[MoriartyIsRumbling] And the problem is that people have so much baggage and history built up in here that it gets ugly in no time flat.
[InvaderZim] at this point, maybe all politics should be banned in here.
[MoriartyIsRumbling] I advise people to get comfortable with the "ignore" function.
[MoriartyIsRumbling] If it really bothers you that much, and if a single comment can make you go mental and abuse someone mercilessly, then maybe just ignore them.
[MoriartyIsRumbling] I didn't see Zim's reaction as extreme or unwarranted. It was just his viewpoint, and a reaction to what was said. He didn't attack or belittle anyone.
[MoriartyIsRumbling] Of course each side thinks they're right.
[MoriartyIsRumbling] People don't walk around thinking, "Boy, I'm wrong, but I'm sticking to my guns."
