you write an article about vinyl, one of my favorite things in the world since i am a vinyl collector and dj, and use a photo of painted nude women as the photo?!
i'm very sorry to hear what happened to your family. i'm so glad that they found refuge, and that you're here with us today. :)
"commie" was also a term used for American children of former members of a Soviet republic. i'm not sure about spouses, i've never asked my Mom is she was called a "commie", but i'm sure she was.
thank you for the reply, i appreciate it. you have the right of free speech, including sarcasm and jokes, but i also have the right to let you know i found your words offensive. criticizing the products of a company, the government or policies of a nation, etc. are one thing. referring to my entire family, friends of the family, my godfather, etc. as "lousy" wasn't something i could tolerate without saying something. also, i'm not sure whether a non-native English speaker such as my father would catch the sarcasm in your words. since he was someone i planned to interview for this site, your words have prompted me to post his interviews elsewhere.
i was called a "dirty commie" enough in school, i'd rather not see that ignorance and hate echoed on this site.
i look forward to your future articles.
yes, my family is Armenian. both sides lost family members.
thank you, i appreciate the nice words. you don't have to call me your favorite, or hot. you're correct, men who touch my ass get threatened with immediate violence, because i don't play along with the immature "i bet you won't touch that fat girl's ass" game. and i don't kiss men, fyi. i'll gladly accept a handshake or shoulders-only hug, though. :)
thank you for the explanation, but your name isn't "Hycospeed". my issue is not with you. and there is a difference between a commenter making a joke, and someone using that phrase in an article, where they are probably receiving some kind of compensation.
the last people that considered us "lousy" initiated a genocide, so i'm sure you understand why i'm a bit defensive.
what is this "insurance" you speak of?
i was wondering about x-ray film as well, thanks for sharing.
thanks for the explanation and the nice words. i thought "pinko" was a slur used against communists. i apologize for being misinformed.
i would say "hugs and kisses" back, but i'm sure you have a partner who wouldn't appreciate that.
unless "lousy" means something different to the kids these days, i'm still offended by it.
