Missing option: I want this discussion (in any locale -- not just this Forum) to end.

Missing option (and my answer): There should be no reason to be bothered by how someone else chooses to pass along their greetings.

I don't remember seeing anywhere in the post that someone was bothered. If you can't just answer the poll why respond at all?

Forget the nickels. If you want to draw and keep new members, stop the passive aggressive behavior.

Passive aggressive, me? LOL!

1. I think I was quite clear about this particular thread's pointlessness.

2. As far as my tagline goes, since you have brought it up, I am responding directly to someone's ridiculous and inflammatory tagline which I have previously mentioned as being inappropriate before via a similar discussion in this thread: http://mngca.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2595&start=0

There was an interesting article today on this very topic here: http://tcdailyplanet.net/article/2007/12/12/bellecourt-blasts-kqrs-disguising-racism-entertainment.html

For those of you that disagree, I am uninterested. What you are saying *IS* inappropriate, inflammatory, ridiculous and unnecessary regardless of whatever the local tone is towards racism. I am extremely offended by it and I want it to cease and desist. Any comments, other than apologies for being ignorant and/or racist along with a promise to never do it again (in any venue) will be the only I will respond to.

I hope I was clear.

Folks -

If you want to respond to the subject of the poll then please post it here.

Please move the rest of it to PM.

Thanks.

The whole poll to begin with is "War on Christmas" baiting.

Baiting? Absolutely, and sometimes I just can't resist!

PM? No fun!

Passive aggressive? No more so than the poll itself! (I didn't imply that anyone in particular was bothered, I just said that it shouldn't bother anyone.

No, not from me. I AM a Christmas kind of guy but at the end of the day I was interested for no other reason other than for my own amusement. Also a way to break up a dull day.

Obviously, not a single person so far has taken the poll in the correct context. Unbelievable. Or, should I say, it is totally believable here on the MNGCA. The organization where everyone has a common goal: Minnesota geocaching or to piss off the next guy... I can't figure it out.

Enough. Unfortunately people can't seem to keep this on topic. Locked.
