It's one of the best books of all time! They can't do that, can they? It's a book about banning and burning books. Which is odd, because that's what thier doing. I just don't understand people sometimes, I don't get them.

The irony!!

I reckon they're doing this as a p*ss-take just to see how far they can go.

Funnily enough, I bought the film last week

Ahh I remember reading about this.

You know, if she wants to remain ignorant and miss out on one of the best books ever written, that's fine and dandy.

Trying to prevent others from reading it is unpardonable.

Well I'm sort of curious about the book itself that they trying to ban. I bet there's a lot of content in there that I probably wouldn't care to see or read and is insignificant to it's theme. The thing is if you're trying to make a point there will often be plenty of smucks out there that will fill their argument with indecent and unneccessary filth and vulgarity. That is something I too disapprove of.
It's simple to present this from a biased perspective all you have to do is play around with a few words and you will get the shock reaction.
BOOK ON BANNING BOOKS TO BE BANNED! Oh noes!

FLYING PANDA PROMOTES COMMUNISM!



They have the right to not read the book. Why take away other's to read it?

Man .. that is a funny twist isn't it? Perhaps they should read the book and give it some thought and educate themselves before they call to ban it, eh?

That would be a bad bet.

Bradbury simply doesn't do that. In fact, he's sort of famous in the community for his stance on vulgarity.

I bet I can guess what made you think otherwise too, this dad and daughter duo of dimwitted dolts. See how their uninformed opinion spreads like a filthy miasma, corrupting those who come in contact with their words?

:shk:

The book is one of the most important in existance on the subject, and it's well-written. It's a classic, with a message, and delivered with style - what more could one want?

There's no sensationalism here, just good old-fashioned, honest, outrage.

Do yourself a favor and read the goddamn book before making up your mind about it. Don't be like these people...

Ever notice the type of people that adhere to the "condemnation before investigation" style of thinking??
