Wow, the subsequent posts are so full of angst. You're right, this is no longer a discussion but rather a flame war. If you were offended by my words, then I apologize.
But here in the first world, we have phenomena called "freedom of speech" and "a right to express opinions", I'm just used to voicing my thoughts aloud when and where I feel like it.
I may have come across as a little brash, but the intent was to generate discussion, not trade insults.
