It's posts like this that just stir the pot. And it's like you think they're funny. "Oh, she farts fairy dust lol." But it's not funny. It seems actually fairly unoriginal to me.

Have a nice day.

Homer and I being chased by a Night of 1000 Stevies is hilarious.
Especially if it's summer in their boots, which they wear all summer long.

Original and funny. C'mon, you know you cracked a smile.

If you can't handle an opinion other than your own(and that's my own personal definition of snowflake,btw),you should probably stay off the internets!
So you've never posted anything that was only intended to provoke others? That's what I was asking.
It's all just good natured humour

I have no problem with almost every opinion on here, whether I agree with them on not, so your idea about me is completely incorrect.

I'm highlighting that there are occasional few comments that seem to step over the line of what is acceptable according to the rules of the board. It's actually nothing to do with Stevie, or not wanting to hear criticism of her. It's about this place being ok for everyone, not just you.

I have a feeling we're not going to come to any agreement here. I'm just using my freedom of speech on here, which I thought you would appreciate, given how much you value yours.

It actually makes sense that you don't know it because it's Latin, and as such the "ce" in "vice" is pronounced as the "che" in "cheddar".
Otherwise I wouldn't have pointed it out because I'm not a native english speaker and it doesn't feel right to me to correct a native speaker in his or her native language without checking first (but I have to say that I see a lot of native speakers that don't know the right use of the pronoun "its")

And I sometimes will employ a synonym, if I'm uncertain of proper spelling, and spell check can't find the proper one.

The masses have always had rather poor taste, darling.

And only Christine rises.. Lindsey sort of floats around.

For those who are interested, this site is about different personality types (focusing on the Introverted ones) and highly sensitive people and I sometimes enjoy reading its articles: https://introvertdear.com/

Especially when maybe 30 percent of those masses are American Horror Story teen fans.
