Yeah, the man had a way of leaving you gasping for air didn't he?
Maybe I'll write my own thoughts.
"Asterisks of Outrage--life with Dr. Bob and the errant P.B.C"
(That would be a joke in case y'áll weren't sure)
> Since Theresa's statement wasn't directed at any particular individual, but just a rant to the general public, I don't think it warranted a PBC. Even though it was strongly worded, I don't feel it's offensive to any religions or other groups.
Well, I can only imagine, if I'd just witnessed something so horrifying and sickening, something someone had sent me IN AN E-MAIL I d on't think any words would be strong enough, and it's especially understandable if you're needing to talk about it, and so posting about it right away. I mean, just reading about those things is horrifying.
I think Dr. Bob did focus on the "I don't care" and took at as her brushing off other peoples beliefs, but that's not what she meant. And depending on how involved I was with Babble at the moment, I think getting a slap when I'm that justifiably upset could be very hurtful.
> Are we to assume that there might be a group out there that is very pro-arm-cutting-off-and-truck-dragging-and-beheading, and they might be offended to hear that their actions offend someone? To me, that is taking civility too far!
