98. You know...
it really is interesting to see the progression here.

You called em a racist, a charge at which I took seriously because I'm not. Then you changed it to classist...OK, where I come form we had the dese, dem and dose folks. They spoke poorly because they were raised in homes where there was no literacy. The poster had written what I termed an eloquent post. Someone took issue with that...I rewrote the post the way I bleived an illiterate would write the post in a half-hearted attempt to be humorous. There was no 'racial' intent, I at first had no idea what you were even talking about. Of course, after years of teaching at Penn, I quickly realized that this was just one more case of the R word being flung.

I have no interest in 'banning' anyone, especially those with whom I disagree. I don't like the fact that there's no benefit of any doubt anymore here and I have certainly been one to put up with a lot of crap flung my way over the past 3 weeks which I have let go, and will continue to do so. Freedom of expression is paramount and we should all know why we're here and not at hte Free Republic board, right?
