Finally had a good heated discussion with valid points on both side of the issue and now it's locked. I guess I am just way out on a limb and am one of the few that like a good debate. Oh well.

A good debate is fine. One that becomes calling each other and other people idiots, without honor, etc.,etc., is not a good debate.
Idiots I disagree (a spade is a spade).
Without honor I agree.
Bringing one's family into it I also agree.
For the record, I never did either.
As we have said repeatedly, the word "idiot" is an offensive term that, if you know the meaning, does not apply to anything here. Why is it necessary to call people any name at all? I didn't say you did any of those things, but others did. That is why it was locked.
While I didn't post on the subject matter being referenced, I did appreciate the opposing views.
I don't care for petty and nasty. Lots of it lately from TOS newbies
I would classify the term idiot as meaning
someone who acts in a self-defeating or significantly counterproductive way
Too me, not offensive.
To others, maybe so.
But moving on and understand your view.
Definition of IDIOT
usually offensive : a person affected with extreme mental retardation
: a foolish or stupid person
IdiotFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaJump to: navigation, search For other uses, see Idiot (disambiguation) and The Idiot (disambiguation).
An idiot, dolt, or dullard is a mentally deficient person, or someone who acts in a self-defeating or significantly counterproductive way. Archaically the word mome has also been used. The similar terms moron, imbecile, and cretin have all gained specialized meanings in modern times. An idiot is said to be idiotic, and to suffer from idiocy. A dunce is an idiot who is specifically incapable of learning. An idiot differs from a fool (who is unwise) and an ignoramus (who is uneducated/an ignorant), neither of which refers to someone with low intelligence.
Here's a thread with the "I" word all over it and its not deleted! Sorry just funny
Go to al.com for that nonsense..lol

Idiot is an offensive term. It's as simple as that. No need to put out definitions or anything. If I go up to a stranger on the street and say you're an idiot I doubt they would smile and say "It's nice to meet you".
If you think that a poster (any poster) could be offended by some words then try to refrain from them. This isn't the forum for it. There are many others that are a little loose with that on this network but not on this board.

You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
