So, If you see a post that belittles or talks down to someone you will stay silent? Think of all the bulling that you could have stopped... I just pointed out his comment was not cool, I haven't dun anything wrong despite the profanity and derogatory language from Brian. I haven't said anything inane or had a diatribe or preached or what was it last time? Ah, waged a Jihad against him... You all defending him for telling a blind person they should have known something because it was in "a big bold box" at the beginning of the article Basicly calling him stupid or incompetant is what bothers me most.
