    Just as an FYI, over the last few days, we have had a couple board members, namely "Irishstout" and "Alice" who have said dome ridiculous stuff that I don't want on my board. As much as we pretty much let you guys have free reign and say whatever you like, We will not tolerate divisive and hateful language here. Please keep your racist, homophobic and sexist comments at home or somewhere else. For those who cross the line, you get one chance, as people say stupid things occasionally. Say it twice, and you are gone. That is all. There is no discussion.

    also, as a further point, the "tough-guy" toy collectors need to chill out too.

    It's a toy. Relax.

    But of course when Andy bashes on French Canadians, it's all in good jest, right? ;)

    Saying Andy is jesting is like saying poutine is good for you.

    Euh ? Poutine isn't good for you ...if you're an anglo. Three of the four basic food groups dude !

    As for Andy and us frogs, his comments don't really seem mean spirited just semi-lame jokes at our expense...he doesn't really know us and i don't sense any of the burning, condescending hatred i had to deal with growing up in Montréals' West End in the seventies, where survival meant learning to fight and to speak accent-less english.

    I don't think it is the same as angry comments about sending greasy immigrants back to where they came from or that gay peoples quest to lead normal lives makes one vomit.

    Just for the record. I don't class myself as racist . . . . unless douchebags are considered a race! ;)

    There are enough douchebags on SB to form their own nation.

    People need to read the FAQs. Common sense sure doesn't seem to reign here.
