I need some help here, is there a bug in the BBS where the words "OR OPPORTUNIST" don't show up on your screens. I remember typing them. They show up on MY screen. Or, is it rather that you chose not to read them, read it as "coward AND opportunist", or maybe opportunist was just to big a word for some of you, so you just ignored it.

Well, I tried to be polite about it, but I should have know from past experiences that you can't deal with anyone that has a differing opinion.
It was interpreted that way, because YOU wrote it poorly, not because we are stupid or the software is bugged. YOU posted negative comments about snipers regardless if they are military or whackos like this latest guy. YOU did NOT differentiate. I simply posted my differing opinion of how I think snipers have an honorable and very tough job.
Thankfully I've never had to fight in a war, but if I did, you can damn well bet I'd be appreciating those snipers that are covering my ass knowing damn well that the other side has them too.
So, you think that when a SWAT sniper hits some asshat that is holding hostages in the head and ends the conflict with no innocent loss of life he should go home feeling like a coward because he didn't run down there old west style and have a draw? Give me a freakin break.
Who says it's not an honorable profession for the enemy sniper? We may not like them, but I wouldn't like ANY enemy soldier, sniper or not.
Bwahhh...whatever, I have better things to do then argue with a guy that can't deal with a differeing opinion without resorting to basically calling me and others illiterate idiots. I have a bumper to build, you can continue to try and make yourself feel smarter than the rest of us if you want, but I'm done.
