They were right to remove the joke. It was racist and rude (not to mention the terrible grammar and spelling made it even worse) for any mexicans, any people with mexicans in their families... well, pretty much everyone in general.
YOU may not be racist, but the joke was, and shouldn't have been posted.

Sorry you got your post removed, but try and find a more tasteful joke next time.

You may think it's funny, and they might too, and that's fine. But it IS a racist joke, no matter how many people laugh, and has no place on this forum.

I don't understand how your bad spelling and grammar are justified by your signature, but that doesn't really matter... so long as your posts and legible :P

telling it to friends is one thing but telling it to a thousand people you have never met before is another.

No need to insult me...

So your signature means that hooked on phonics made you have bad grammar? ... doesnt really matter, but if it's so obvious then i'd like to know what im missing

trust me if they wouldnt have deleted it as soon as they did you would have got alot of people complaining about the post.
so you might as well not worry about the stupid joke anymore and get over it.

That All Again

lol How do you know I didn't complain???????????

I didn't care for the joke. Would you like to try now to make it up to us by telling us a bit more about yourself? Like what animals you have or like, or would like to have....or perhaps a bit about your locale?

Before you went and posted a poll about your thread being taken down, you should have read the TOS Like i asked you to in the PM i sent you.

As for there not being a complaint, who said that there wasnt??? I did infact receive a complaint about your thread, that is how i saw it.

even if no one gets offended, it is still racist and evey time that you get away with doing something bad, you just want to tak advantage of it and you end up doing more and more bad things and soon you might really start offending people. Just don't argue and don't do it again.
