I’m not sure why people feel the need to find something to offend them. Take for example some real winner on our comment boards just a little bit ago. I just happened to come and check the site for comments and new posts from Matt as I do through the day when time allows and I saw a few comments under a pretty nice post Matt did about life and putting in just a little extra effort to make things better. Somebody was actually able to read that entire post and zero in on only one word, completely missing the point, taking everything out of context and making him or her self look like the biggest tool in the universe. Seriously, if you have nothing better to do than to look for words to interpret the wrong way to try to find racist remarks or something else to get yourself offended, you my friend are a pathetic waste of time and space. If you want something to get all in a tizzy over, scroll down the main page and look through the archives, I’m sure there’s something there that would upset you quite nicely, and more fairly than the use of the word cracker by a white guy no less, to describe himself, and not even in a racist way. Get over yourself, whoever you are. You’re really quite pathetic if that’s all you’re about. And don’t bother emailing or commenting to say that you’ll never come back and read this site again, that’s fine with me. You are the exact kind of person we don’t need here, and the hit counts look pretty good without you around trying to cause shit. Oh no, I swore, call the word police.
The bottom line here is just like Matt said to you, “lighten up.” And I’d like to add “get a life and a clue” to that, because it needs mentioning.
