I used to. Personally I think it's gone the way of the Simpsons. Used to be insanely good, a real gem of prime time TV, close enough to me actually honestly thinking about getting a TV again, but it jumped that shark somewhere. I dare say it was somewhere after Sheldon got a girlfriend and Leonard got together with Raj's sister.

I can't put my finger on it, maybe the jokes started to repeat or maybe it just got a bit too outlandish for my tastes.

It should read "what soccer moms without a real problem hate about the BBT".

This is a prime example of complaints from people who have nothing to complain about but want to feel outraged about some shit. Seriously. What the fuck is this? This is a perfect display of PC bullying. Yes, the jokes are sometimes crude, graphic and silly. But that's what makes jokes funny. You know funny, right? Like "What's the opposite of Christopher Reeves? Christopher Walken." Yes, that's tasteless, yes that's VERY offensive, but most of all, it's insanely funny. Yes, I can laugh about that. And for fuck's sake, I WANT to laugh about that. Deal with it. If you don't like to hear me talking, if you don't want to hear me tell such jokes, it's well within your rights to not listen to me.

You think that show is not suitable for your kids? Then don't let them watch it. Simple as that. The TV is not your cheap babysitter, and I refuse to let you turn it into one. Because that would also mean that I only get to see Teletubbies and similar rubbish. You wanted kids. Now deal with it. It's YOUR kids. Not mine. And don't you dare shifting the burden of raising them onto me.

Raise them or shoot them. Either is fine with me, but don't dump them on society!

I wasn't talking about the rules of behavior for His Children; that's secondary. I was referring to the Author. I was referring to the tyrannical behavior of God himself as *ahem* "documented" in some detail in the Old Testament in particular. He Himself doesn't operate by the Ten Commandments; His behavior is worse than what is mandated by those. Dude is a full-on psycho tyrant.

... has swapped out their famous motto "Don't be evil" for one with a slightly different ring: "Do the right thing."

So now, in true Machiavellian true-believer fashion, they can comfortably be evil as long as they're being evil to do the Right(eous) Thing... whatever that is.

Thanks for reminding me that I wanted to ask for a feature: Could we make it so that we don't just browse at -/+ depending on poster but that we could also add keywords of posts we don't want to see? Like, just to pull a random example, I could set posts that contain "start64" at -5 so I would not have to see them?

That would really be awesome!
