Subject: RE: BS: Boxing; cruel, primitive & nauseating
Yes Gnu, John has the right to speak. We all do. Including me criticizing him and you criticizing him and me criticizing you for sticking up for him, even though he called you a cave man.
I actually think that Willie's point that is the most salient one expressed in this thread. If it is a thread where John simply expresses his opinion, it probably should have been immediately closed.
If the topic is too be discussed then Willie's disgust with with John's whinging is certainly fair game. Willie was even kind enough to give advice as someone who knew the first thing about boxing to someone who clearly didn't.
This is far more constructive than calling everyone in the world a cave man because they haven't banned something that offends the sensibilities of one evidently prissy Brit.
