I favor censorship.

Once I talked to the inmates of an insane asylum in Hartford. I have talked to ****** a thousand times, but only once to the insane...

Mark Twain writes:

In the first place God made ******. This was for practice. Then he made School Boards.

Mark Twain writes:

We are all erring creatures, and mainly ******, but God made us so and it is dangerous to criticise.

Mark Twain writes:

His ********* covered the whole earth like a blanket, and there was hardly a hole in it anywhere.

Mark Twain writes:

...******** as the unborne babe! ******** as unborn twins!

Mark Twain writes:

[He] was endowed with a ********* which by the least little stretch would go around the globe four times and tie.

Mark Twain writes:

...there are some things that can beat smartness and foresight. Awkwardness and ********* can. The best swordsman in the world doesn't need to fear the second best swordsman in the world; no, the person for him to be afraid of is some ******** antagonist who has never had a sword in his hand before; he doesn't do the thing he ought to do, and so the expert isn't prepared for him.

Those that handle language well and precisely must be handicapped in order that those who are incapable of either can feel good about themselves.

Yet you cannot find a single instance when I have ever called a member ******** or ****** or even an *****.

I try very hard to attack the idea and topic, not the person.

Re: Censoring Insensibility
Ah, so in the post to which you are replying you might notice I used none of those words.

Are you perhaps saying that I have not explained over and over why an idea might fall into such categories?

If someone persists in posting material that falls into those categories should it not be pointed out?

Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with the level of censorship at EvC and I can expand my vocabulary to work around the restrictions, but that would simply make more work for Percy and I do not want to cause him even more problems.

One can deliver a satire with telling force through the insidious medium of a travesty, if he is careful not to overwhelm the satire with the extraneous interest of the travesty.

Re: Personal Attacks
That is a valid question Buz, certainly not attacking you.

Have you ever actually read the Bible Buz?
