    Siachen is one of the toughest spots in the world to survive. And a strategic one for both India & Pakistan. It takes almost super-human effort to do a tour of duty up there. If one reads up on that part of the world.
    Human loss of life is always a tragedy.No matter where it occurs.

    We'll hunt you down like a dog. After we find you, we'll find a pair of well soiled Depends, then push your face down in them and rub your nose in it.

    You see? You're a couple comments closer to shutting this site down.
    You might want to make users "register" to filter out all of this riff raff, people are getting tired of you allowing it to continue.

      Jeff, I agree with you 100%. They need to integrate a password system so we might be able to have some intellegent converstion. This is really getting old.

    Yeah bobcat. No matter if it's to learn from others, have a little off topic joke or fun, have serious conversation there's always one or more jokers on here intimidating others. And CNN allows these screws up in here, going against the community guidelines.
    I don't know..maybe I should take a vacation from this blogging thing altogether. I didn't know if I'd like it anyways.
    And there's good, intelligent people I personally know, that if I would ask them to come on here? They simply tell me there's too much cussing on here and disrespect, they don't want to be involved.

      @Jeff Frank, I agree with you and @bobcat. I can't understand why CNN cant even assign us each a password and confirm by email with a return confirmation email from the potential blogger. It would certainly make the blogging experience much better. I have given up on having to go back and say Not Me when someone steals my name. CNN only does a good job when it comes down to being nit picky about certain words. Enough of my ranting.

      We've all had a good thing going for a long time now. Overall, the people I have met here, seem like down to earth individuals. Hey, I know we all have our moments, but at least we don't get nasty. It's like I say, We agree to disagree. No bad blood. And as far as my jokes, what can I say, tha's just me. But they really do need to get a handle on this.

      Good to know it's really you. I normally see your posts in blue, indicating you're on your phone. You threw me a curve with your computer usage.

      Thank you chrissy. She just explained she's on her computer tonite. These stupid trolls are driving me crazy. Hard to tell who's who. If we weren't used to each others style, it would be a real mess.

    I know I had Nicole S. upset simply because I changed my screen name one day. But I make a lot of people upset, cause I'm of different stock.
    You know trolling itself can be detected. It's cute until they victimize the ones thier impostering.

    I love it that we all have our seperate little quirks. It's called indvidualism. We is what we is.

      In all honesty, I do not think that the powers that be particularly care about the individual poster.
      It has been brought up again and again, to no avail.
      I find it disconcerting that CNN would let people violate teir own written TOS again and again...I can only surmise that it suits them to let it continue.

      @ banasy©
      I agree completely. They post their terms of service that you must agree to, and instead of penalizing the abusers, they go after people like us. Maybe, just maybe, if they start getting enough complaints, they'll choose to start enforcing those rules.
