    Ever stop to think that a forum member of Indian heritage might take offense to that Ken? You have put people in time out for less.

    I take offense to you assuming those of Indian decent have no sense of humor.

    Take offense all you want. In an age where jokes can be a sensitive issue to some that haven't developed a winter coat to protect themselves from the snowflakes, I think it is ill advised to offer up jokes based upon ethnicity... that is all.

    Oh good Lawd man. If I wear a Sombrero, does that make someone offended too?

    Enough with the walking on eggshells already.

    Here....let me tell you a joke that will be sure to offend some sorry putz out there in internet land....

    How did copper wire get invented? It took a family of rednecks on welfare and the shareholders of IHS Markit finding a penny on the sidewalk at the same time.

    So, what part of that joke offended you today? I did talk about skin color....

    Give me a damned break guys. Enough is enough!

    It's difficult to type in sarcasm over the interwebs.

    Let me be the first to say that I'm not a fan of this world's over sensitivity and it's inability to cope with reality/truth. When feelings become facts, society as a whole fails.

    Neither am I, but when a MOD who has banned people for less does it, it sends the wrong message to the community as a whole. Does this mean we can start tossing in a few blonde jokes? My understanding is that Russ is the only person we are allowed to joke about at will, and anything else comes under closer scrutiny.

    Well, that's because Russ is......well, Russ. Come on now...

    You are aware that "naan" is a type of bread common in India, often containing garlic or potatoes. It is hard to imagine how anyone, no matter what their ethnicity, could take umbrage at using it in a simple word play joke. In case your sense of humor is at the cleaners the jest is derived in linking the phrases "naan-profit" and "non-profit".
    I believe what is really behind your complaint is you using the opportunity to invent a pseudo affront merely to poke your sour grapes personality where it doesn't add anything.
    The other reference to removing a political themed photograph has no bearing.

    Yes life is good...but as life tends to be...very different from a few years ago.

    However...some things don't change much. Anything in this photo look familiar? ;)

    Yep. The CA has a different sound from the "hot rodded" Sony SCD-C555ES. Both are VERY good...just a little different.
