If you sit on "the other side" you look at things very differently.
I admit when I read the "b" word, I was mildly shocked.
And I agree about using Home Depot. After reading the story I went immediately to Home Depot and could not find those girls anywhere
I hate when I'm told the wrong location

I can't remember all the so-called crimes I commited, but I do remember the following:

One time I talked too much about medical isues and people got nervous and I was asked to leave.

Another time I posted too many jokes and was accused of trolling and banned.

A third time I was looking for a certain recipe and didn't care for the recipes that people suggested. That made people very very angry and I was kickled off a la being a troll.

Another time I was deemed not spiritual enough.

Each board has rules and regulations but often they are overlooked as personalities come into play as well. I think that's annoying, but .....
Dude, you're either seeking out the wrong sites, very unlucky, or -- well....

As a conservative who frequents Home Depot I thought the joke was very funny.
My mistake was posting it in a forum where the majority of members are, I'm assuming, women. I can see my wife finding that joke, umm..........not funny, but on the other hand, not offensive.

Actually your assumption would not necessarily be correct. This site is split pretty equally between men and woman.

Your mistake was posting a somewhat R rated joke on a PG site.

Oh, yeah, I remember the joke, roadfix. For the record, I wasn't offended in the least.

An "R" rating, GB????? Zounds!

It wasn't PG, that's for sure.

Well that is why I said "somewhat" Lee. That one was not so cut and dry. It was discussed with the mods and admins as it was in a gray area. Some members were offended. Others found it funny. As we often do here, we erred on the side of the children.

For what it's worth I enjoyed the story about the girls in the Home Depot parking lot. Having been accused of crossing the line once or twice, it's maddening to be told you have violated the community standard but somebody has to do it. I'm glad they do and I'm glad it's not my job.
