    Same goes for the PC brigade after Ricky Gervais.
    Why, has he started a career in comedy?

    you take something completely out of context, to twist it to your own argument.
    Which is exactly what you have just done with this post, well actually you seem to be making things up as you go along...

    This is a forum, where people discuss things. I have to read YOUR posts to successfully argue against your points. Therefore, your assertion that I don't have to read your posts is wrong!
    You don't have to read my posts, it clearly states my username at the beginning of each post. You don't have to argue with me.

    I am enjoying pulling your posts apart, as it shows a certain level of intelligence that, I believe, you can only aspire to.
    You're not pulling my posts apart, you are reading what you want to read and replying accordingly.


    2 pieces of, quite breath-takingly insulting work there, j17!
    What's insulting about me stating that I believe something and retracting a statement won't change that? And the second part was meant as a joke but hey.

    Do you have any proof to back up that statement?

    I may find it funny because I am able to use my intelligence to separate fact from fiction and allow the ridiculous situation described make me laugh. I certainly find other offensive jokes funny for exactly the reason stated; jokes that other people may consider equally or even more offensive.

    I don't find it funny but neither am I offended by it; ergo you consider me to be unintelligent or uncivilised.

    By way of asserting that anyone who was not offended by the quoted joke is not intelligent or civilised you could well have insulted people. I personally did not find your post insulting because I don't care enough about your opinion; an opinion which you have potentially created based on my reaction to a joke.


    The only reason I cared enough to respond at all is because I wanted to help you understand how you (accidentally I hope) insulted people.


    If it was not accidental then you sir troll'd me good!

    you could have quite easily said "I don't think you should have posted that joke" and left it at that.
    I could have done, but I found your post offensive and took exception to it.

    And if you post things I consider stupid, then I will assume things about you. (As people do about me )

    Now you can be offended by my remarks or you could learn from the experience

    This has got a bit heated!

    Everyone's different at the end of the day. I personally like Jimmy Carr but sometimes I laugh because I can't believe what he's just said! I can't stand Gary Neville being a Sky Sports pundit but there'd be a shed load of people who would tell me he's great!

    If we were all the same, it'd be very boring. There'd be no banter, no competitions etc.

    Let's just agree to disagree

    Also, Jimmy Carr furore.

    This time about people maimed in wars.

    People seem to be forgetting, this is what he does. It's pretty well established he's a dark comic.

    If you don't like black comedy... Don't watch it.
