Racism is a point of view I have no respect for. Granted thats the extreme but it illustrates my point. Same with those morons who think man-boy relations are OK, or Muslims that want to murder any and all Jews.

I guess it's all in the wording and how someone understands the said wording based on his or her own preexisting views.

Racism, at least to me is not a point of view, but an ideology that most often is coupled with an action or practice that - most often but not necessarily - is in its innate nature promoting racial superiority. It is a profound belief, not a point of view or an opinion.

But, again, that is how I interpret it as a person who only speaks English as a second language...

I'm not kissing you, unless you're female and look like Scarlett Johansen.

Feels like the morning after a night chock full of Habanero eating contest,
followed with all you can eat jalapeņos marinated in Tobasco.

Nope, that would be my girlfriend, and I'm certainly not going to allow you to kiss her!

I was just defending xan's right to voice his opinion on these boards, and since he did it in a way that is in accordance to the rules the site administrator has set in place - I see no reason to make the content of his thread to consist of one hit after another on him, although many of those hits were well-mannered and in jest. Incidentally, I am also guilty of joking around and at times maybe taking it too far, so I'm far from being innocent in that regard.

I probably overreacted, and like xan already stated - he doesn't need any defending. I have nothing against no one on these boards, on the contrary, but I'd also like to see our written transactions to be more cordial at times, because "united we stand!"
Of course you didn't direct it at me. You didn't direct it at anyone, specifically. But as far as I can tell, everyone seems to be posting the same type of sentiments, and so you've pretty much indicted us all. I didn't say you were targeting just me, which is why I keep using the word "us" in my responses.

I'm just not seeing what you are considering to be so mean spirited about any of the posts. People don't like being talked down to, especially when people were otherwise in a good mood. It was uncalled for, and I for one am not dumb enough to fall for his cop-out, trying to back pedal and say all he wants is to win one game at a time. As if anyone had contradicted that idea to begin with. We know you can't win more than one at a time.

I understand you are trying to represent and defend the right to opinion, and I don't take issue with you on that. But this is an isolated case where the opinion was more of a rant against being a happy fan, than it was of being a rational, objective view.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.
