    I'm not saying the surface doesn't play a part, but I've always been annoyed by shallow surface gestures, I guess it's a personal thing with me.  

    I was just trying to find a way to say my peace...which was that if PC means embracing certain ideals and backing them up with action...well, cool, call me PC

    The problem I have is with the action leading to too much supression of speach.

    Did you get my email?

    absolute freedom for one individual undoubtedly limit's the freedom of another.

    •  Who is suppressing speech? (4.00)
      Did anyone get banned for using the word pussy? No? Then speech isn't being suppressed - if anything we've had an explosion of speech here. Saying "when you use that word you undermine your purpose and sound like a dumbass" is a pretty far cry from "policing" speech. As soon as people start actually getting banned for language and having their comments deleted THEN I think it makes sense to call censorship. Until then we're just having a heated discussion.
