Ok, folks,

I was told not to say anything, that it was really unnecessary, but fark it, I'm a-sayin'.

The REASON I posted this thread on 9-11 was twofold:

1) Someone somewhere decided it would be a good idea to deepen the pain and reality of that tragic day by having a picture of some unsuspecting man on top of the WTC as a plane was heading in. What better way to give a kind "piss off" to that person on 9-11-02 than to photoshop the guy's head on cliche kitty or a cleaning lady or something?

2) This guy, like it or not, is just as much a part of the entire ordeal as is Osama, Dubya, Rumsfield and Anthrax. This picture was, from what I have read, the fastest spreading urban legend in internet history. If you had an internet connection, chances are you saw this picture within a week of it first becoming available.

I find it amusing / amazing that in 20 or so PS contests featuring our cotton cap clad friend here, it was an utter riot to put him in other events in history or replace him or the fake plane with something funny or odd.. yet on the anniversary of the tragedy, some folks decide it's time to play "who's holier than thou" and become reverent and, honestly, sanctimonious and hypocritical and pout all over the thread.

This seems to me the literal eqivalent of those folks who become insta-christians every 7 days when the calendar rolls around to Sunday.

If you want to be reverent and pious, fine by me. Just practice as you preach. I wonder exactly how many of the people who decided that it was wrong to post this and voiced thier opinion thusly have done anything whatsoever to back up thier ranting on this thread, aside from standing on thier soapbox and yelling? Just because you decide that on the anniversary of the event it's time to pay respects and biatch at those who feel it necessary to express THIER feelings in THIER own way (i.e. photoshopping a doctored picture of a tragic event designed to depress and fill the viewer with a sense of pain and loss) doesn't make you a decent person. If you ever laughed at this picture or the photoshops following it (and I mean EVER) then you are just as bad as those who actually understood the point of PSing him on 9-11-02 and did so.

All of this being said, if you have a problem with my posting this thread, I encourage you to click my name above this post and send me an email. Tell me how you feel and explain to me why I should care.

Or, you can continue your biatching in this thread where it will pass through the annuls of history until the server goes down or Drew gives the site up and the logs get deleted.

Wow, what a mark on history you whiny people will have made... one day, you can tell your grandchildren "Yes, kids, I honored the victims and the families of the victims of the tradegy of 9-11-01 by arguing on the internet."

I disagree, yesterday was a day of remembrance. Some of us have more class than others I guess.
