Hey E legal, if you have nothing better to say don't say it. Your comments are very distasteful.

No matter how much one might not like another's statement remember that we all have the right to comment as we see fit as long as profanity isn't included. Some speak more strongly than others and that is their individual right. We all enjoy FREEDOM OF SPEECH and should not be deleted because a comment offends someone. It is a fact of life and should be respected!

Wordtothewise, I understand we all enjoy FREEDOM OF SPEECH, but we have no right to use hazing tactics.
