You have internet access down there? That's surprising. It's probably an old-fashioned modem hooked up to a phone line, isn't it? I could see that being tortuous.

RE: I need a favor Message:
I think there is probably a lot of nuance to this kind of stuff. I rarely object to anything out-of-line in Shtickless, because there's always some entertainment value
associated with it. Think of it like the difference between Playboy and Hustler.Or more aptly, Trading Places with Jamie Lee Curtis and Shaving Private Ryan, with some number of adult film stars. Context is everything.

I understand where you're coming from in that regard. I wouldn't say that to Max, even after seeing his graduation pictures on facebook.

When was it being used in that context? I do think that's probably something that could be objected to.

I don't know for sure, though, that WIS Site Staff should be held accountable for the retardation of the retards who used retards in that retarded context.

Heh. It's okay for irony, right?

It's equivocal to a racial slur. Some people will always say it, and some are dumb enough to say it to someone's face.

When used in the context you describe, it's benign. Maybe politically incorrect, but still harmless. I know people who say that all the time. I might cringe, but it's not a big deal.

What I abhor is continually referring to someone as a tard. It's offensive in that context. You are unlikely to pass a child with Down's Syndrome in the mall, and remark to someone, "Did you see that tard?".

SIDS seems more taboo to me. Retarded has been such common lexicon lately that it's hard to discourage. I think getting into a spat over it is just retarded.

It's just an adjective. It's not like retards get all angry when people use that word, and say it's theirs. Like is it wrong when I say the car in front of me is driving retarded? Maybe it's just something society is numb to, but it just seems like an apt description sometimes. If it wasn't applicable then I'd probably have a complaint too. Like sometimes people mean it for good things now, like when a party is retarded. I've heard that, and it didn't mean leperman jim's kid was having a birthday, it meant like something crazy was happening.

I'm so posting this in the random correspondence thread.

Over the past few days.

I just got tired of it all. RL is too quiet to say anything, so I did. CS response was unsatisfactory, so I escalated.

You are probably the same way about SIDS.

Objecting to the use of "retard" and the like.
they argue its not on the FCC's list of banned words. My argument is, basically, the Bill O'Reilly or anyone on Fox News would never utter the phrase, "Sarah Palin's tard son, Trigg".

I also ******* about the obscenity in Moonlight Graham's HBD Chat. I am not long for that world, but no one needs to see that crap. Delete it, and hand out the requisite bans. They are quick to do so for Shtickless members...

Oh, and I escalated the whole thing to some other Fox execs...

CS is none too happy with me at the moment, over some vehement objections I have raised. Could you let patrickm and tzentmeyer know that I'm not really a bad guy?
