You're so wrong on so many levels it makes me tired just thinking of drafting a counter argument. It's not worth it in the long run, because your
dillusional, close minded, brainwashed view is likely so ingrained that you will never be able to free yourself from the mental prison your
"educators" have locked you in. I'm sure you are happy, ignorance is bliss.

Personal attacks all over the place here. Respect the poster and attack his argument.
What you've done here is spit on that respect and tried to get at him personally.
Well, I'm sorry for airing this out publically, and I'm sure I'll be banned for this, however, I am not "allowed" to respond to the private message
sent to me by "semperfortis", and thereby am offered no recourse except for this forum.
"Semperfortis" removed my comment, giving the explanation in his message to me: "We seek to promote discussion and debate in way that pushes the
discussion in a positive way".
For the life of me, I cannot figure out how yamammasmonkey's post above adheres to this.
Given that what I originally wrote certainly may agitate people who are not open to ideologically questioning what they've been taught from birth, my
only conclusion is that the moderator himself personally disagreed with what I had to say in my original response to the OP.
I can certainly assure whomever does read this before it's removed, I always try to conduct myself as if I was speaking face to face with someone, and
if someone like yamammasmonkey want's to be rude, then I certainly feel like I deserve the right to respond, if only for the reason that I invested a
considerable amount of time and thought in composing my post, and to have someone like yamammasmonkey come along with absolute childishness like he
did is pretty damn rude.
If anything, this only bolsters the argument that I originally set forth, that while things may seem to apply equally to everyone simply because they
are written down, whether that may be a TOS, or a Constitution, nothing could be further from the truth when you allow certain individuals the
latitude to interpret those rules how they see fit.
