    Okay, I have no idea how interracial babies was brought up here; maybe I'm missing something.
    I think I am.

    @saywhat:
    This is precisely what I was talking about on the other thread.
    I am supposed to overlook snide remarks and insinuations about stuff I don't even know about?
    Forgive me, saywhat, but it is tiring and tedious, undeserved, and I put up with this every day.

    Good Lord, Eagle 76/Philip, what are you talking about?
    Of COURSE I condemn men raping ANYONE!
    What are you TALKING about??
    I must be dense, as you just accused me of, for I have no idea what you are talking about, and I'm beginning to get a little irritated at whatever point you are trying to make about me and my intelligence.
    I am asking you with all due respect to please explain what it is you think I'm guilty of now.

      And btw, the use of "creamy baby" used to be accepted years ago, but now it's akin to calling someone the 'n' word.
      He might want to keep that in mind, next time he talsk about it.
      In other words, it's an insult.
      Wouldn't want him to be accused of being dense.

      Whoever you are, your backwards logic is flawed. If you practice this in your home or business environment you are a failure. The only success you've had it chasing legitimate bloggers away because they are sick and tired of your abuse. Start your own blog or enjoy your own company on here.

      Good one chrissy, not as dumb as everyone says you are, eh?
      Or did banasy give you that one to set here post up?

      It's not MAN of War at all.
      Nom means *NAME*.
      As in nom de plume.
      And it's spelled c o n g r a t u l a t i o n s.
      If you're going to be catty, at least get the meaning and the spelling right.

      Just another troll who doesn't have a clue as to what it's talking about, chrissy.
      That's why it left.
      It set itself up, it failed, it's gone.
      Buh bye now.
