Good discussion. Really. Some good stuff to think about and learn in this thread. I think we all have opinions and should be heard. But in the way AA does things. Sorry if that's too pristine for some.
I think that if we all think about it hard enuf, we could agree that "rape" and "pillage" are very harsh words. Being this is a family forum which we pride ourselves on keeping that way, I'd hope folks that don't like it that way would move on. And I am NOT singling anyone out with that statement. Just thought I'd take the opportunity for anyone following this post to understand that.
Heck, I saw a fish forum the other day that has all kinds of harsh, abusive, and foul language throughout it. Some like that, and I think folks have a right to and participate. We just don't like it here. That simple.
