Never heard it called that until now.

Re: Curious

There was never a challenge merely a question why which has now evolved into what it has. Enjoy everyone and spell it the way you want as you do have that right.

Free speech can be tough - and of course it has it limits - the "yelling fire in a crowded theater" scenario or libal are examples where free speech is limited. However disgusting, crass, vulgar, stupid, ignorant, immature, snarky, distortions even outright lies and so on we tolerate, avoid or igno...

Re: Curious

Hey All, I appreciate all of the replies / viewpoints / opinions / reasons. When creating this topic political correctness was never even a thought.

Re: Curious

How is MS a thief when an end-user made the decision to either purchase a copy of MS Windows or made the decision to purchase a computer with MS Windows installed on it.
