    This is a great response. In the future, I hope you'll look at poll ideas quest 2011 on a regular basis; if you had made this comment there, I'd have included it as an option!

    Hoaxes are only insulting if a) you are taken in by them and b) if you are vain enough to think they are explicitly aimed at injuring you personally.

    They help us to question what we are told, not to take things at face value. If you still think that is a waste of time, well, life's a waste of time.

        *CENSORED* you, you myopic *CENSORED*.

        There are enough real life scams and problem, there is no need for legitimate oranizations, newspapers or what have you, to put on hoaxes, or spread hoaxes, in any way shape or form.

        Time is valuable, and I don't need to waste mine, just so some *CENSORED*, secure in his Utopian Kingdom, can get a chuckle.

        Why don't you come visit my kingdom in Nigeria, we can laugh together?

      Sure, and the holocaust was really helpful to the jews.

        I'm looking and looking for the authoritarian, hierarchical government in what you are responding to, but just not seeing it, arrogant or otherwise.
