(05:19 PM) Guess Who  -  I agree with that decission. We all heard enough mama jokes in high school. But the other jokes are all open lol. I did the same in HS too. If they said mama jokes I would throw something at them or punch them. laugh.gif
(05:03 PM) Green Bastard  -  I never include family as that gets to personal and most of the time you have no clue as to the other persons personal history. Someone said something once about family and needless to say they are no longer on that site as the Admin there was a personal friend of mine and saw it before I did and kicked them to the curb.
(04:55 PM) Guess Who  -  I go with call me what you want. I can take it lol. Just keep it to insults about me. Don't drag family into it. Like "Mama jokes" and stuff like that. That don't fly with me lol. But anything else goes. :D
(04:53 PM) Green Bastard  -  I hear that. Like I said pussies! lol
(04:52 PM) Guess Who  -  I have been called more names than I can think of also. People are gonna say names and things to others. Part of the game. If admins or staff can't handle that then they shouldn't staff. lol I have gone off on many admins in my time. Some think they can call you names and joke around with you but when thjey get it back to them the ban button is pressed lol
(04:38 PM) Green Bastard  -  They didn't all serious and self important. I've been called every name in the book and I gave them a zippy comeback and they got all pissed because it didn't bother me one iota. Wussies!
(04:37 PM) Green Bastard  -  For the record most were because I was challenged and even though I warned them they couldn't handle it pussies. lol
(04:36 PM) Guess Who  -  If you are admin have to have a sense of humor about things. I do at least. laugh.gif
(04:35 PM) Green Bastard  -  I have to tone it back as I've been banned by some sight by Admins who had zero sense of humor. lmao
(04:33 PM) Green Bastard  -  I have to be careful sometimes as I tend to go for the juglar. Too many nights MCing at comedy clubs and such. lol
(04:30 PM) Guess Who  -  16 hours without power is forever lol. Good you can dish and take it GB. ;)

THE CANADIAN PRESS

VANCOUVER -- As hospitals tended to almost 150 injured in Vancouver's hockey riots, dawn broke with dozens of volunteers patrolling the city's entertainment strip, picking up debris and garbage.

Al Cyrenne carried his broom downtown as he made his way downtown on the Canada Line.

"I'm all choked up," he said, as he surveyed broken windows and debris on a downtown street.

"I can't believe the scene. Just talking about it bring me to tears. I can't believe the people of Vancouver would do this. It's just a few idiots."

While police said it was mostly young thugs responsible for the mayhem overnight, an equally young crew turned up in jeans and rubber gloves, some with Canucks jerseys, all carrying plastic garbage bags.

Dozens of remorseful and dismayed commuters crowded around the smashed and plywood covered display windows at the flagship Bay store, a historical building that was the first focus of rampaging looters Wednesday night.

Someone had tacked a rough, hand-painted sign that read: "On behalf of my team and my city, I am sorry." People waited in line to sign it.

Mayor Gregor Robertson said there has been an outpouring of support from citizens.

"People coming downtown to try and help cleanup, trying to get our city back," he said as he toured the damage.

"What we saw last night was atrocious behavior."

But others appeared to glorify in what they did.

"Tonight the social peace was exploded," wrote D on the Vancouver Media Co-Op webpage in a posting triumphant about the mayhem.

"Single acts of defiance become the more heroic as one window gave way to another."

D went on to describe the trashing of downtown stores, mayhem that began with The Bay, where windows were smashed and high-end purses and cosmetics were looted by rioters who poured into the store.

Across the street at London Drugs, the windows were also smashed.

Wynn Powell, the president and CEO of London Drugs, estimated the damage there at $1 million alone.

Powell, sounding angry, said in an interview the looting wasn't the random consequence of a mob mentality

"The rioters attacked us for two hours before they got into the store. They were down attacking the stores of Vancouver to try to steal product."

He said high-end cosmetics in particular were targeted.

Hospital officials reported two stabbing victims had been admitted and an unidentified man is in critical condition with head injuries.

It's believed that person may have fallen 12 meters after trying to jump from the concourse of Rogers Arena to the sidewalk of a nearby elevated roadway after Thursday night's game.

Vancouver Coastal Health said most of the rioting victims were treated at St. Paul's Hospital in downtown Vancouver, while about 40, including the stabbing cases and the head injury patient, are being treated at Vancouver General Hospital.

Vancouver Police Chief Jim Chu called a news conference for later Thursday morning to discuss rioting and looting that also left cars burned over a roughly ten block radius of the city's main shopping district.
