What is it with all this admitting that emotions are affecting our posts? We are official SkepticsTM and believers in pure logic and fact--therefore if someone disagrees they are wrong and stupid and probably like Nickelback.

Don't make me have Abdul get the flame wars thread going again!
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

We used to have flame wars, but those dark days are thankfully gone. :)

It's fascinating how that word seems to have lost its power as an actual insult.

Seems it's now often used as a fake-insult™ for comedic effect.

What if certain other words (that cannot ever be said on TV these days) would also loose their power as an insult?

I disagree that it has. It's just that no one objects to or polices the use of that word on this forum.

My bowels keep telling me that they need to extrude a huge load. Every time I go, 'tis but a piffle. Maybe I need more roughage.
The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
