For the record I NEVER used words like "responsible" and "justified". I was speaking purely in general terms and simply stated that I UNDERSTOOD someone's use of derogatory terms in reaction to actions initiated by the object of the criticism.
I agree with your wish for everyone to just behave. Actually I have always been an advocate of getting far away of an uncomfortable situation and if a person's actions disturbs you then don't ever associate with that person and/or situation. But as stated before this is not possible in a controlled enviroment on a Survivor set.
I even went so far as realizing everyone is different with their different opinions by stating (and I quote)...
"TO EACH THEIR OWN"
Sadly posters like Mr. History Buff and his sidekick Mr. Monogram are taking this on a personal level. They are extracting choice words to initiate confrontation and in the process totally missing the points of my posts.
But I think we all know how this is going to end. A moderator will come in and give a canned speech about how "it doesn't matter who started it" even though clearly this personal joust was initiated by Mr. History Buff. Then EVERYONE will be reprimanded and we'll have to cut off this thread which will suit me just fine.
I'll repeat my sentiments...To each their own. Other posters should take that advice.
