If there was point system on the forums, you would lose 10 points for that.


You could implement a system. It is within your power =p

How valuable would ten points be on the forum though? How would they be accumulated? I'd like to know before I give a reaction as to how terrible losing ten points would be =P

If it were like, one point per year then yes I'd be panicking :D

Actually if you compared the article date from the OP's url to similar articles of the same story on different news websites, you'd notice that there were earlier versions of the articles posted up, which virtually tell the same story, but in different voices(which is typically what happens in most articles anyways).

I already stated my stance regarding the article in the Things In The Universe thread, but for the sake of being on-topic I'll reiterate it here: Whether or not the name was intentional, there was clearly some type of meaning behind giving a name like Adolf Hitler, especially if they asked for a swastika to be included in the decoration. If they really think that a name is just a name and that he isn't going to do what Hitler did, they would not have tried to associate a symbol of Nazism with the name. I could understand if it was meant to be a religious art symbol(ex. Hinduism, Jainism, etc.), but that wasn't the case here.

Other than that, my stance is pretty much the same as everybody else who posted here. In general, it seems that most businesses have the right to refuse service to anyone as it is already, so ShopRite made a decision they thought would have been best for their business. They could have either thrown away their biases, accepted the request, and decorated the cake, making the family happy or they could have given the request some second thoughts and decide whether or not satisfying something questionable for a customer would be bad for their business. I see it as a business just choosing the lesser of two evils. It doesn't seem that uncommon.

Hi G.I.R
I like your commic wow it really very nice,now a days the parents do really irresponsible think to naming their children's ,the name of the baby decide there future .......

You're missing the point. It wasn't "irresponsible". The parents did it on purpose.

I'm going to broaden this a bit.

I honestly feel sorry for the next generation of kids. Truly and dearly feel sorry for the next generation. Think about it. The internet expanded and boomed for the kids of this generation. It wasn't until the mid 90's that the web really took off and look at the majority of the web now. No, really, it's not porn anymore. It's hate and ignorance. Okay, it's hardly the majority, but think about how many /b/tards are going to be having kids? The ones who find humor in the most horrible crap. This is the kinds of person the parent is. One who finds enjoyment in trolling.

That's all this is. That's why he named his kid what he did. In an attempt to troll people. To piss off others just so he can get his jollies by doing so, and using his kid as the means. If you think for even a second he named his kid what he did just because "he liked the name" you're so blind.

The bigger fact is his response to the backlash of what happened. He's trolling. If he really felt what he said, he wouldn't be purposely trying to stir up trouble in the way he is. He wouldn't have made it into a media spectacle, and he wouldn't act in completely contradictory ways.

/b/tards are having kids, and this is the result. Trolls and script kiddies are becoming the adults of this world.
