I’m not disputing that Rob, EVERYONE is entitled to his or her opinions, entitled to freedom of expression, freedom to think, freedom to hate even. Those that seek to intentionally hurt others are themselves weak anyway, and those who take pride in watching others fall are despicable. That said; they are still entitled to their freedom to express their feelings and thoughts, however contemptible they may be.

You need to elucidate exactly what you mean by “decent” people Rob.
