Wow, look. New thread and I'm still here.
For your edification, BTW, here goes a mini-recap of the last 20 or so posts in Bureaucracy 1:
"She started it!!!"
"No, he started it!!"
I guess it was just unavoidable.
I swear I know how to spell Sartre.
Sadly, I even quoted your post and didn't notice. Long day...
And really, overall respect for the community is why I won't kick Zoe again. Though, my respect has been waning in recent times, I still have enough to want to explain myself, and to hear people out as to why they are upset with me.
I'm upset because "subhuman" is a terrible thing to call anyone, and it's a terrible justification for any action against anyone. It's different from criticizing someone's behavior, because behavior can change; "subhuman" is just an epithet, like "kike," "nigger," or "fag," (and yes, I'm using those examples because I do find it that upsetting), and I don't want to see it used even on someone I agree has been detrimental to the community.
Let us never speak of this again.
(Edit: And of course I meant that for DX, not Micole.)
I move that amyth has to be my slave, and do my laundry because she made me cry (and I suspect she made the baby Jesus cry, too).

If it helps, I understand that you see it that way, and why you're upset, but it is why I said it, and I still think it. I mean, if it changes your perspective of me, that's fine. I can accept that. I'm just not mincing words. This is how much I hate Zoe. And, have you ever seen me this angry about anything else besides voting, in Buffistaland? Huh?
