I've had it as my quit line in Chat, and in here for almost as long as Sigs were an option. Now that I have been banned in chat because it offended someone, and I am threatened with a banning in here for my line, should I change? For those who don't know it is a recent simpsons quote.

No, your sig line is not offensive (to me). Whether you change it or not is up to you. If you're comfortable lying down for those who complain (about nothing, I might add), then change it. Oh, and I believe that Jesus (not hey-zoos, Mr. Aug.) is the son of God.
Link Posted: 11/29/2001 3:44:03 PM EDT
I don't find it offensive. My question to those who do is why? SGB has it right, usually those who are offended by something that they read or hear are looking to be offended. Leave it there unless management suggests otherwise.

I'm sure the leprechaun contingent would have said something by now if they found it offensive. Sorry to hear you got booted from chat for something so trivial.

I can't remember what it was so I must not have been ofended.

Don't lump the rest in with me. I was the one who assumed it was you who was offended. I could only think of one or two people who frequent the chat room who would be offended and because of your profession I first thought of you.
Link Posted: 11/29/2001 3:56:46 PM EDT
None of the "rights" we all believe in The Constitution says that "you have the right to never be offended". I say don't change it unless YOU decide to change it. "I'm sure those offended enough to complain are those "recently converted" (what's the term...born again?) as they are usually the most fervent due to their "having to make up" for all their years of "evil" from before they were "saved".. my 2 cents... hope it doesn't offend, well, not really.

A friend of mine used to be one hell raising, womanizing s.o.b. Got married, found Jesus, etc. He's now a minister (or whatever). Got his own church. There's nothing worse than a reformed whore.

Don't change it... I've gotten used to seeing it accompany your name. Nothing in the constitution says you have the right to NOT be offended.

The first time I read it, I wasn't sure how you were meaning it. Either you were saying he is so elusive because you don't believe he exists, or you meant that it takes a lot of effort to follow his path and get into heaven.

On behalf of Leprechauns the world over, I find it highly offensive. Everybody knows that we're faster.

If it's a quote from the Simpsons you could give Homer (or whichever character said it) a by-line. That might defuse some of the complaints.

Actually it is a Simpson's quote. Homer needed some sort of magic or luck to cure his bad luck (i think) so he asked lenny and carl. One of them said catch a leprechaun, because they can grant wishes. Homer figured that was too difficult and asked if there were any alternatives. One of them said "Jesus", and then said "yeah, jesus is like six leprechauns only harder to catch."

I am not offended nor do I understand it. I would say I support you being banned from the chat room for the never ending questions and mindless bantor you like so much. It's like being the the spanish inquisition when you are in there.

Do you mean Styer AUG's gardner, Jesus? I am a religious person and it has not kept me from sleeping at night. Actually, I am kind of offended that a)people are so concerned with other peoples sig lines that it has an impact in their lives(if you can call it that) and, b)that you would even care if others were offended.

Personally, I do not care if people are offended by it. However, if keeping it causes me to be banned (already has in the chat room) I certainly should care. I found it important to shed light on getting in trouble for having it because I am not the only who doesn't portray Jesus as my glorious savior.

Link Posted: 11/29/2001 5:42:40 PM EDT
No offense taken here. I'm still not sure why so many people sweat the petty stuff. It has been my experience that people who take offense too easily lack the sense of humor required to survive in the world today with their sanity intact. Many of those lead fairly unhappy lives because they're to hung-up on these things to just laugh it off. Life is a journey, worry about getting a good pair of shoes. If it makes you feel any better, the last time I met a born-again christian who mentioned God more than 3 times within 10 minutes of casual conversation (not in a church), I asked him "What did you do that was so bad, you needed to be born again?"
Link Posted: 11/29/2001 5:48:43 PM EDT
Who the hell requested that you be banned? That's about chickensh!t, man. We have to listen to bible quotations all the time, and aside from a little ribbing and occasional bitching, we all get along. Now, because you make a joke, someone has to throw a hissy fit? That's weak.

Fighting (appropriate name )Illini - You are askin' the wrong people. You should be asking the One whose name you are making light of. I think you picked your tag line to be intentionally provocative. But then, so did I. Only difference is, mine isn't intended to single out any particular group or belief system. Just those who EARN it. But like you said, you REALLY don't care if it offends. And you've had it for a couple of weeks and you are still here, ain'tcha?? So I'm not sure what your point is in bringing it up, other than a rather "kindergarten"-esque move to get yourself some attention. [}:D] Does my tag line offend you??? [}:D] FWIW - don't ban him, or his sig line on my account, Mods. I can take care of myself. And so can Jesus, for that matter. {edited cuz "and" ends with a "d". And to correct something after re-rearding FI's post)}

If everyone who was in any way offensive was banned from this site, it would probably be empty. Keep it!

Just so we can finally put this issue to bed, your signature line was not the reason you were banned from chat. From hearing from the person who banned you, and hearing about all the complaints from other members who use chat frequently, the reason you were banned from chat was because you seemed to enjoy pestering people. You constantly harassed folks, even after being asked to stop. Your sig line had nothing to do with it.

If it offends Jesus to be compared to leprechauns, let him take it up with you. If half of what I've heard about him is true, he doesn't need my help.

First off, I don't care if one or two people are offended (which seems to be about it), I only care if the sig line is considerably offensive to the majority of the board. Secondly, I am bringing it up for a couple reasons, the most obvious being that it has already gotten me banned in chat (and don't blindly listen to DonR, read the chat log I posted). Also, it serves as a warning to people that having an offensive sig line constitutes a bannable offense (apparently). Lastly, it is an honest question if the sig line is so bad that I should be punished for it.
Does my tag line offend you??? [}:D]

No it does not, but your devil worshipping overtones do [:D]. Hey, and Garandman i got nothing against you or jesus, and you can post any of your moral views or bible verses all day for I care....and I read most of your posts.

Well, I guess the pro-leprechaun crowd did take offense. Too bad....I thought they would have had more brains than that. [:)] Maybe they felt cheated....perhaps they wanted a mano y mano sig line instead of six to one.
