Please remember that not all fora are like the ones at snopes and you can't post the same way everywhere. It's better to just keep my mouth shut on topics that could be touchy if I'm not sure what the reception will be.
Yeah it's been a bad week for things like that, I ended up doing it several places. I do blame it on developing a certain posting style at snopes coupled with my poor social skills and my scattered way of thinking. I guess the only saving grace is that I was able to keep my cool in all cases, but I shouldn't have said anything in the first place or just dropped it before I got my foot in my mouth up to my hip.
