"As a"
rottweilerson | 5/15/07 | rottweilerson

Posted on 05/15/2007 9:55:43 AM PDT by Rottweilerson

"As a". I have noticed that many people when speaking or writing start their sentence with "As a". Followed by an array of PC protected classes such as, "as a women, or "as a person of color" or "as a single mother",etc. Most of the time after "As a" comes "I was offended by". The jest of their point is always the same, (I don't like what your saying, their will be no debate, shut up!) and they do it alot & get away with it. I'm sick of the "As a's". Am I wrong?

As a regular here, I find this outrageous.

Surely you jest?

(I hope you get the gist of what I’m trying to say).

As a FReeper, I would say this discussion has some merit.

As a casual observer, I think you’re niggling.

Nothing more annoying than a snob poster throwing “I’ve been here longer than you” in someones face. However your right about posting a stupid vanity.

Oh My... you've been around since the beginning (my understanding Freep started around 1998 or so)...

is it true the Jim-Rob started with a 360 computer and Windows 3.0? and the servers were really IBM 2415 magnetic tape units.

Before that postings were submitted using punched cards and IBM 2540 card readers?

(said with respect and humility... as one would say to Don Colene')

Hey, at least your vanity is still up.

The one I posted last night announcing that I was wearing new socks and gushing about how comfortable they were was pulled in about 30 seconds.

As a FReeper of over seven years, I was quite baffled by this.

Wonder what would happen if I tried it again?

By the way, do you realize that “forebearers” is actually spelled “forbears”?

Actually it was an ENIAC and the only way to post anything was to submit your post on punch cards. It took months to get a reply.

You got new socks, shared that with the forum, and the mods pulled it?

Why those:
