RE: [DMCForum] unmoderated user



I have no idea what's going on with the formatting of my messages,
either. Damn Microsoft.

      <soapbox>
     
     
     
      We seem to live in the United States of the Offended.
     
     
     
      Everybody's paranoid and Political Correctness has gone too
far.
     
      "Shell
     
     
     
      shock" became "operational exhaustion" became "post-traumatic
stress
     
     
     
      disorder". Black people have different names for their
ethnicity
     
      depending
     
     
     
      on what their age is. (My near-family member in his 70s still
calls
     
      himself
     
     
     
      "colored" while younger generations just stare at him, but
most of my
     
     
     
      friends just call themselves "Black".) "Senior Citizens" have
simply
     
      become
     
     
     
      "Seniors". In the Navy, the officer above you in rank isn't
called
     
      your
     
     
     
      "superior" anymore (they've become "seniors" too, like the old
people
     
      and
     
     
     
      kids in their last year of school).
     
     
     
      People these days are driven by fear, they don't laugh at
things that
     
      need
     
     
     
      to be laughed at, and they take EVERYTHING entirely too
seriously. One
     
      thing
     
     
     
      I've learned from my gay Jewish colorblind tall co-worker is
how to
     
      laugh at
     
     
     
      damn near anything, and my life is a lot less stressful for
it.
     
     
     
      I have a t-shirt that says "Think. It's patriotic." Perhaps it
should
     
      just
     
     
     
      say "Think." Or "Laugh." I think the people on the DMCForum
are, for
     
      the
     
     
     
      most part, able to take things lightly -- they're not offended
because
     
      they
     
     
     
      can laugh at things. If somebody on this list called me a
honky, ofay,
     
      grey
     
     
     
      boy, blue-eyed devil, cracker, whatever, I'd shrug it off.
(Although I
     
      kinda
     
     
     
      like "grey boy".) We get along not only because we have a
common
     
      interest --
     
     
     
      the DeLorean -- but because we're sick of everybody telling us
what we
     
      can
     
     
     
      do and say and how we should treat our cars. Hence we are some
of the
     
      more
     
     
     
      progressive-minded individuals who scoff at authority and
rebel
     
      against
     
     
     
      things that, like dopey dumbed-down language used by guilty
white
     
      people
     
     
     
      (oooooh there's a good one to get people riled up!) to make
sure they
     
      don't
     
     
     
      offend anyone who doesn't have a sense of humour. This list is
the way
     
     
     
      American should be -- everybody resolves their differences and
accepts
     
      each
     
     
     
      other's way of life, and we can all get together and have a
laugh.
     
     
     
      Especially if we're laughing at the DML. :)
     
     
     
      I think we should have phone systems that say "For English,
press one.
     
      For
     
     
     
      English Lessons, press two." But don't even get me started on
the
     
      United
     
     
     
      States of Amexica. That's best discussed over beer.
     
     
     
      </soapbox>
     
     
     
      Whew. I need a martini. ;P
     
     
     
      I think I really should go to PF so we can all have fun with
the
     
      people who
     
     
     
      have a sense of humour, and laugh at those who don't. :)
Anybody wanna

              The DML can be pretty Communist with there
strict/loose
     
      depending on
     
              who's moderating guidelines.
     
            
     
              We street race in Wisconsin and all compact cars that
are all
     
      souped up
     
              are called Ricers or Zoomies. Hmm maybe the person
that got
     
      the
     
              rejected post should complain to the DML and say "how
dare you
     
      call
     
              that a racist comment, are you saying i am a racist
because i
     
      said
     
              ricer?".
     
            
     
              This world is really starting to SUCK. Pretty soon
some person
     
      will
     
              bitch because it says "IN GOD WE TRUST" on our paper
money and
     
      some
     
              Atheist will get it removed. It is bad enough that we
live in
     
      The
     
              United States Of America and our main language is
English but
     
      we must
     
              press #1 for English or please stay on the line for
Spanish,
     
      shouldn't
     
              it be the other way around? DAMN we should just change
the
     
      name to The
     
              United States Of Whatever.
     
            
     
              That would shock the moderator.
