That, in fact, is almost always the way it goes down. With one caveat. She's usually far, far worse. That isn't the best example. Just the most recent.
There is plenty of blame to go around, and I'd bet money that Lily would admit that, but I will simply have to disagree with the preponderance of cases. I see the first really low blow (I am not talking about terse or even curt language) come from someone other than Lily.

Do you realize that when your (figurative your) common speech/writing comes to the point where infidel, heretic, sinner, heathen, un-American and the rest becomes the norm when referring to the non-believers, the negativity has already begun before any of us make a single post?
When have Lily or I ever used such language? and if we haven't (as your figurative implies), why do we get to be your punching bags to whip and beat to take out your frustrations? Thanks, but no thanks.

Do you realize that for most of us, this is our only refuge from a world where we are the most hated people? Do you realize we have built this community as a sanctuary where we can release some steam?
So...because you are often unfairly labeled as hateful, your answer is to build a place where you can dole out hate?

Have at it then. I'll bow out and won't interfere with your sanctuary.
It isnít a matter of the language that is used its all about intent. I donít see a difference between Lilly tossing out the opinions of some of our younger forum members based solely on their ages and PC calling names or posting cow pictures. in a way throwing out peoples opinions is more offensive than the cow pics. If the indentation is to hurt someone unnecessarily (and when is it ever necessary) the words used cease to matter.
