No prob. And yes, you're right on the money. It does suck. It reminds me in many ways of the Salem witch trials. Anybody can make a complaint about any one else and because the company is so afraid of being sued, they can and have fired the person the same day. They don't ask for the other side of the story, nada.<br><br>The thread killer
There are no US censors, just uptight Americans ready to rally a boycott and the advertisers that are afraid of them. Notice that CBS (or whatever network that it was) that was afraid to show the Reagan docudrama because of advertising and special interest pressures is still going to show it on one of its owned networks, Showtime, where it isn't beholding to the pressures of advertisers.<br><br>Remember the whole Ellen thing when people were trying to boycott any companies that paid for advertisement on her show (during the whole coming out phase)? <br><br>I quote George Carlin in saying that if you don't like what you're hearing [or seeing] there's two fu˘king dials, one to turn it off, and one to change the fu˘king channel! Personally, I don't like most of what I see on television and don't watch too much of it—not because it's offensive, but more because it's all about consumption, frenzy over facts and treating the viewer like an idiot.<br><br>
I guess Kim Jong-Il has never been to California before basing his opinions about the lack of open sexual discourse and sexual freedom: Center for Sex & Culture <br><br>BTW, that Flash text presentation is horrible. The speed of the text (WPM) is never consistent, so just when I get my eyes working at the right speed, it changes tempo again. Plus, it's in mono-spaced all caps—about the worst thing for readability. And on top of all that, the bozo loves making the text blink. I guess he wasn't all that interested in having people really read it. ...A real bad case of Flashturbation.<br>
"Remember the whole Ellen thing when people were trying to boycott any companies that paid for advertisement on her show (during the whole coming out phase)? "<br><br>I thought the boycott was becuse the show sucked. Lets face it, after she came out on the show, each and every show was about her being gay. I was all downhill from there. The show lost it's humor.<br><br>The thread killer
Oh I agree, the show lost all semblance of good writing after the "outing" and was cancelled due to lack of entertainment. I was talking about the time where they were leading up to it and and many critics of the maneuver had their panties in a bunch.<br><br>
