Would you get offended if I joked about James Joyce's failing eyesight? Would you get offended if I joked that Ringo was a lousy drummer?

If you joked about there deaths then yes I would! CRAP comparison, and you know it. Tbh I couldn't give two s***s about MJ's death, but, some people might, and that's my point. Have fun defending yourself Bozon I'm going to bed.

EDIT: I told a lie I do care, but the stupid Chicken pissed me off.

The Michael Jackson I know and love, has unfortunately been dead for some time. But the young lad inside me who hammered the Bad tape till it broke, will never forget him. Looking at the media coverage this morning, I doubt I'll be given chance to.

Fact: In my belief,

Hello.

I'm not allowed to be sure that I believe in what I believe in? I considered that some might misinterpret what I typed, but considering the context of my comment (a response to C-Brutus', the only reason why I typed the word fact) I thought my intentions might be fairly clear.

That comment was made before anything "offical" was announced. MJ was such a weirdo anyways, jokes were gonna be made. I loved the guys music too, hes a true legend, but he was a complete nutter!!!

Agreed! But... why would you WANT to type something like that when you know it's only gonna offend, u r either too thick to realize it, or just don't care. Neither I'm fond of.

If I was still playing Little King's Story, I'd lob a Gourmet Chef at ya.

Get over it and dont be such a queen.

You'd be offended if I joked about the death of James Joyce, eh?

Somehow, I don't believe you.

It's okay to make jokes and ridicule the guy when he's alive and kickin', but when he's six feet under everyone has to be really nice to him?

You're not allowed to pass your belief off as fact.

...In this case putting "Fact:" right in front of your belief.

But hey, maybe I'll use that some time. "See the fact is, in my opinion..."

Which is completely unnecessary and still not true. It can't be a fact that someone holds a certain opinion. You can't exactly prove that he means what he says unless we're going to take a lie detector to this thread.

Also, it is incongruous with the rest of his list since he lists another opinion as "Opinion:". This would imply that the above "fact" is not an opinion, given the lack of this heading. It's highly misleading and basically asking for a misunderstand, so I thought I'd point it out.

Either way, it was poorly worded. I didn't really care or think it would trigger a lot of responses... mostly just thought it was an amusing juxtaposition.

Tl;dr: read my posts carefully. (I had to put that at the beginning, cause it seems to be the only way you might see it in your quotes. I'm not going to argue against someone misinterpreting my words when that isn't in the least the point of this thread, so this will be my last post on the issue of my wording.)

I really don't see how I could spell out what I meant any clearer. If the explanation I gave in my last post was not enough, I don't see what would be. I'm well aware that there's a difference between stating an opinion (see part 3 of the post in question) and factually addressing what my opinions are in response to another person's opinion, who actually DID use the word fact to describe it.

I'd start by saying, "Opinion:", since that what you did for the next item in the list. It'd make it more uniform.

Also, you could definitely spell this out a bit clearer:

This thread is going down a really weird path.

A weird path? I thought this was the "Let's Overreact at Every Harmless Little Comment We See" thread, judging by what everyone's said to Chicken Brutus. I was just going with the flow.
