I think #3 is unfair. I like to know the mods, their personalities, their stances; I think it benefits a community to have a relationship to its mods and know who they are. I also don't agree with...

I don't want to see people harrassed in the UC forum, but someone shouldn't be banned from participating just because they are generally not pro-UC. They should have the right to give...

Um, I actually didn't say anything about CEOs or "fat cats;" the closest I came was mentioning how corporations exploit employees.

You use the example of your friend to rail against welfare recipients and perpetuate the idea of the welfare queen as the normal welfare recipient.
 
How does that NOT make you narrow-minded?

I'm not against you; I'm against the offensive generalities you spew and your attitude towards welfare recipients, most of whom are just trying to survive.

new2this, I don't see where mamayogibear said anything about abusing the program to get $300 a month; that she would still qualify after obtaining a job doesn't mean she's abusing the system. She...
