anti-war clothes banned so as not to provoke pro-war violence.. WTF mate?! I thought that as of last week more than half of Americans felt the war was a bad idea..

AHA! The answer to deciphering sarcasm on the Internet / via written medium: context (which seems to be the answer to everything!). If you know g0ose, then you know what he truly means :)

ok, i take it back. it's not that you posted links about some school getting mad at the speech, it's the fact that the "only in America.... :roll: " replies begin to surface. as if that represents the entire country. and it's not like that's the worst problem to have, either.

huh? America isn't a country...

EDIT: bah... I HAD a huge post here, where I was trying to explain/make sure g0ose wouldn't be offended no more, but what the hell.... last time I tried, it turned out to be an even longer topic, so I simply edited the first post... and this one.... :)
