Oh, my...heaven's to Betsy! How crazy can everyone get?
OK, the 'lynching', Dire Lint, to which you aver, I ruled out. Those are your words only. Social ostracism, an alternative I suggested, will probably happen anyway, will it not? Lord Ben is right - it's not a conservative OR liberal idea - it's strictly a Libertarian, non-government concept.
Yae, I was over the top with that paragraph, and it brought out of the woodwork a lot of hyper-libertarian comments. I certainly don't, Inscribed, believe that what I said 'incited' anyone with the compulsion to go out and meet in some garage Saturday night and form a vigilante group...now, really, do you believe so? But I applaud your decision to call the mods and would heartily suggest to Plugsy that this is a strangely and unnecisarily mutated discussion, and deserves the axe.
Yes, UmbreonMessiah, I WAS just askin'. Although I still believe in what I questioned, that some rights have to be modified for the common good (aren't we already subject to internet searches to an unacceptible degree?), I respect your right to find umbrage in my questions and scenarios. Not that I respect your right to label me as a troll, but that's up to you.
Who was it, Socrates, who made people think and found out about their ideas, by asking a lot of questions? I won't do that here anymore - I don't like hemlock juice.
