I make it a point not to apologize for other people's hypersensitivity. If
you guys are all so mature, who decided to change the subject line and call
me gay? Why don't you just chill and find a cause that really matters.


And "gay" no longer refers to homosexuality, if you care to keep current on
the English language. The new politically correct term is "men who have sex
with men", and "women who have sex with women".


I think you guys need to attend a seminar and/or get a life.


And I will no longer validate your immature comments by responding to your
childish assaults. This thread is for talking about Newtons. Everyone is
tired of this sensless crappy spam.
