    Just because it's 7 pages, it doesn't mean it's a discussion.

    Mention religion and you can get, and I've seen it, up to 60 pages.

    Pure bile and hatred on everyone single one. That's not a discussion.

    Love him. He seems to get lost sometimes in what he is trying to say but most of it is quite clever.

    fair point, but this hasn't descended totally into anarchy (yet), there are still discussions in here albeit with heated arguments surrounding it.
    my point is, i wanted to get peoples views on it, and it has got peoples views on it. but for others they focussed on their views on me, not on the actual topic.

    sort of like someone asking how to do something in active dir, and rather than getting a comment on how to do it, someone saying "you are stupid, you shouldn't be working in IT"

    It's about Scientology. It doesn't count as it isn't a religion.

    What exactly about my post did you find offensive?
    The fact that you requoted offensive material - you knew that some people found it offensive but YOU decided that regardless of this, you'd repost the material.

    Lets give an analogy

    Someone publishes a disturbing picture - somelse reprints it here and says i don't know what the fuss is about - can you not see it would be better to just link to it (with a warning) so that people who would be disturbed by it don't see it.

    The discussion could still take place but people like me would not have seen the picture and would just move on to next thread

    I've caused offence around here in the past and when its been pointed out to me I normally delete the post or apologise - I don't have a go at the person I've offended and tell them they are wrong

    And there lies the flaw.

    They won't move on, they click the link and then complain. Or just complain for the hell of it.

    See: The Jerry Springer Opera. [More complaints recieved well after it aired, by people who didn't watch it and just thought "I would have been offended by this."]

    Well it does appear that some people on here refuse to let others have their own opinion on things. According to my latest neg rep, "i'm an idiot" for liking these comedians. Am I also an "idiot" for not liking the same things you do? What about Religion? I'm not religious. I play rugby and dislike football - am I going to get more neg reps? Most likely...

    It's saddening to see that the neg reppers are so cowardly that they won't say who it is that keeps neg repping me in their flaming messages.

    No religious AND dislike football, I am disgusted...On a serious note I think the argument was over about 4 pages ago when people said its a matter of opinion.

    I didn't actually say "i dont see what the fuss is about", that would be me saying "i agree with the joke, what is wrong with those that dont. i never said that, i said here is the joke, here is what jimmy carr said to counter the joke (and others he has told) do you agree or disagree.
    i quoted the joke in the correct context for the topic. as i said, i if i had put this in the jokes forum and expected loads of laughs at it, then yes, i agree, i'd be offensive in doing so. but my intentions were not to gain a laugh, they were to ask a question, and to do that i included the topics of my question.

    my apologies if you have taken offense, but to be fair you haven't once actually given your opinion on my original question, only subtly attacked me.


    but anyway, i'm not actually in work today, i'm off out shopping, so i won't be replying to this again (as i guess it will have died out by monday).
