2. Its only wrong for Michael Powell to ban words
but "progressives" know better so its okay for us to ban shit.

3. I think all the reacting to being given a choice and a voice
is pretty humorous..when people are asked what they want, they complain...when they aren't asked, they complain...I think the entire exercise has been quite interesting.

5. Not every word, just articles
Edited on Wed Apr-07-04 12:03 AM by Feanorcurufinwe
like 'a', 'an' and 'the' .

I find them highly offensive.

7. while we're at it, how about commas?
Edited on Wed Apr-07-04 12:06 AM by LastKnight
it would make things quite interesting. take the example of the following sentence;

with commas:
"when do we get to eat, dad?"

without commas:
"when do we get to eat dad?"

it makes it all more fun and alot more interesting for everyone.

lol

6. I agree
If we can completely destroy our ability to communicate then no one will be offended.

But since we are here, let's start with "wombat."
