And nobody has yet asked me for the e-mail address of my wonderful
neighbors -- the ones whose baby died, last year.
I'm curious. Why not??
Why won't you send him your *absolute best* dead baby jokes,
Robatoy? Doug? Mike Marlow??
Why the sudden hesitation??
Jack?? I don't see where YOU'VE asked for my brother's e-mail
address ... to forward HIM your best Holocaust and cancer jokes.
I ... I ... I'm afraid I don't understand....
I'll keep checking my inbox.
To a handful of people, perhaps.
What about those to whom it does NOT spread joy?
What ABOUT my neighbor -- the talented woodworker to whom I've

What about my practicing Jew, woodworking, industry-insider brother,
who would be aghast at the Holocaust jokes?
What about ANYBODY and EVERYBODY else that doesn't appreciate gallows
Isn't this a woodworking site?
Shouldn't THEY be *actively* welcomed?
So far ... NOBODY has raised even a *single* point that "I'm missing."
Why NOT take your little sophomoric, backwater group to a private
forum, if there are NO boundaries for the jokes you each enjoy --
jokes that make fun of others?
Why not e-mail each other with these jokes?
You really *can't* win this argument.
Not because of who I am ... except ... to the extent that "I'm on the
side of the angels," on this issue.
It's rather like the concept that "the truth is the ultimate defense"
to things like libel and slander charges.
I'm pretty much dead-nuts right, here. That makes my job
Well, don't read the jokes then. Do not subscribe to the newsgroup. Choose
to ignore. There are a lot of things you can do if something offends you.
There are a lot of wood working groups out there--read them instead.
