Offensive Screen Names


 

"Ha! I love that kind of reasoning. If I call you an asshole and you protest, my response is going to be that it's all your fault for being so damned easily offended. ;-) See? I can do anything I want! If anyone protests-- it's *their* fault!"

Ha! I love that kind of reasoning. If I call you an asshole and you protest, my response is going to be that it's all your fault for being so damned easily offended. ;-) See? I can do anything I want! If anyone protests-- it's *their* fault!

> Besides, if you ask a scieno, they usually disavow Xenu, saying it is some lie made up by critics.

So they're not entitled to be offended, huh? Whether they understand that Xenu is an actual part of Hubbard's cosmology or not, most of them still realize that the only reason it's ever brought up in public is to embarrass and humiliate Scientologists.

> The intent of Xenuu was satire.

What, pray tell, is the purpose of satirizing someone's "applied religious philosophy" on their fellowship board-- if not to offend? Regardless of your intent (and I sincerely doubt that you didn't know the Xenuu name would offend Scientologists), the fact that your "satire" *did* offend ought to show you that it wasn't appropriate for that forum.

> Not to offend, but if they are so easy to offend, sounds like they have a problem, not me

Uh huh. That's the sort of thing one often hears from the little bullies on the playground, too.
