Post by super mario »

whatever happened to freedom to express oneself??
i mean like even if you are being totally inappropriate, as a joke, you should not be like shut down for it, right?

Like, totally, right?...

I feel your pain. I was once evicted from school for randomly stabbing people with a compass, (the geometry kind) - is this right? I don't know. I have trouble expressing myself, so I've decided they were just trying to suppress my freedoms - fascists...

I rate freedom of expression somewhere up there with cheese, next to 'breathing' and 'not being stabbed'

I think if they're letting you live in your school, you shouldn't abuse that privelage.

When you signed up you most likely agreed to some sort of TOS, whether you knew it or not. By giving silly questions are answers, you broke the TOS and got banned or whatever.

You can appeal, state you firmly believe that you are right and that unless the person that banned you was an expert on the situation you spoke of they do not have the right to contest your claims.

Pretty sure there's no laws saying people can say whatever they want on other people's websites.

I remember one of my friends once stabbed me repeatedly in the hand with a pencil. Both of us have forgotten why he did this or why I just let it happen. The scar is visible in just about every photo of me from that year.

I stabbed a kid in the hand with a pencil, but not hard enough to break the skin.

I had the jackass kid in 4th grade stab me in the ass with a pencil. Put it point up on my chair when I sat down. It didn't hurt that much, but I was pissed. I would've done something about it, but he was the temper-tantrum throwing brat of a kid, who was mostly shunned by the class, so I didn't see the sense. Sounds awful, I know. We made occasional attempts to include him (or more accurately, not exclude him) but it was difficult, as he was a sore loser, would cheat and just be shitty.

Coincidentally, my incident also took place in 4th grade.

For the 5th grade graduation ceremony, every single 5th grader except for myself (and everyone who spoke to me afterward that apparently insisted otherwise) boo'd me when I went up to get my certificate.

It wasn't really a downer. I mean, I learned that most of these kids had like divorces or were just looking for peer acceptance. The vindictive aspect was there, but I understood it well enough to not hold any vendettas. Well, except for the one time I spit at the ground next to one girl that ticked me off even though she actually was helping me but I misunderstood. That was a 10 DOLLAR HALLOWEEN PROP DUDE HOW DARE YOU TAKE IT.
