this is hate mail #1,
get out of town
you are making too many people —LOL
I think what SHE is trying to SAY is that SHE has NO sense of HUMOR!!!!!! And that MICHAEL HOFFMAN CONDONES BLOODY MURDER!!!!!!!!!!!!! EGADS!!!!!!
Ooops, I better throw a couple of these [;)][;)][;)][:p][:p][:p] in before the hatemail starts.
I guess that I am dumb. I do not understand what you are trying to say.
OMG, people like different things than I do!
And because THEY like them, and I DON’T, then…then…they’re just BIG DUMB POOPIEHEADS because I’m ALWAYS right, and people that don’t agree with me are WRONG!!! They need to DIE!!
And Michael Hoffman should stop CONDONING BLOODY MURDER!!!!!!
Scorereader, you missed the point. In no way was I laughing at someones murder; just the opposite in fact. I can’t speak for Greymo but I suspect his lol was also not directed by the story.[huh]
I thought you were laughing at someone who objected to the topic of this thread.
Someone made fun of the OP by calling him a nickname most everyone knows he detests and someone made fun of the person who thought killing a futball fan was culling the herd or whatever. So you can see you were way off base by thinking I condoned any of that. I’m now officially done with this thread and would much rather comment on Roadfood.
I read the whole thing. I don’t find laughing at murder to be in good taste. Speaking of reading carefully, you should read my posts. If you had, you’d see I got the soccer connection, but don’t find it in good taste.
You can rationalize it all you want. The opening post jokingly said it’s justifiable that he was beaten to death. I don’t find that kind of joke to be in good taste when the article is about a murder. I’m not saying MH, you or anybody here condones murder. (ok Joe? – got it?) What I have said, is that I find joking about a murder that took place to be disgusting. The man was beaten to death. Apparently, as you put it, “most people” see the humor in that. Frankly, I don’t.
I think, if you read my posts, you’ll see that I had some family murdered (by a beating and stabbing by the way) for something as equally as ludicrous of a reason, and I have been the victim of a brutal attack. I don’t give two flying craps about why someone did it, I think it’s sick to joke about it.
I look at that article and am saddened by the state of affairs this world is in, that people kill and maim each other over stupid things like what’s on television, if your team wins the NBA championship, etc, etc. etc. And to me, it’s no laughing matter.
Some person hurts themself doing something stupid, we seem to see the humor in it. It’s kid of an ironic humor, dark humor. We may identify that the result is just, in a way. The result is almost as if the gods are there providing instantaneous justice to what is wrong. Skateboard with no knee pads, break a knee. That sort of thing. I get it. The whole gene pool thing.
But, this is a case where people were fighting over a remote control and killed a person over it. I’m too worn out of violence to laugh at it. Why aren’t you?
Do you feel better now?
I can’t speak for Greymo but I suspect his lol was also not directed by the story.[huh]
Shouldn’t that be “her”?
I kinda think you got your knickers twisted over the wrong thing.
I get my proverbial knickers twisted when someone says it’s justified to kill someone. I hope that clarifies as to what my statement referred.
Some people………..person……….need to get back on their meds real quick!
harharhar. good one. someone takes offense to insensitive comments and that person must be off their meds. Right.
I don’t give a flying crap if a person likes soccer or not. Everyone has their likes and dislikes. But I don’t find belittling a murder to be humorous. Maybe it hits too close to home, maybe I’ve become a sissy since having a child, maybe I’m just sick of violence and have had it, maybe I’m still traumatized from my own beating I took two years ago knowing those assholes would not have cared if I had died,…but whatever the reasons, I don’t like people making a joke out of a life being taken from a person.
And that is what this thread is about.
Now Now Score. Why do you automatically assume I meant you? I’ll bet nobody else did[;)][lol]
Scorereader…………………..I think that most people took this as someone making fun of soccer. You should carefully read the whole thing. It was meant in humor. [;)]
You know what they say “Dead is Dead!
I escaped with my life. I had just turned on the news when a horde of short pants-wearing weenies screaming ole’, ole’ tried to kill me as they scrambled for a channel showing other weenies who kept running around seemingly afraid to actually pick up a funny looking ball.
