WHEN someone begins to affect me negatively I take DIRECT ACTION, without consent or support of whomever may happen to lie at hand. Much of this smacks of very unexcellent PC douchebaggery so in vogue. Essentially a gossip-circle and personality tribunal are not what I am here for. I CAN and WILL understand the concerns of the offended, but know that we all have very subjective viewpoints, and I personally have NOT witnessed anything but exemplary behavior from both James and Dru both inside and outside of NB.

> PS:i come from a generation of polacks jews krauts micks n++++rs, racy jokes,muscle cars,evil kneival....we had a saying back then in pre-history..."Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me".....I realize this is obsolete in a "new world" where people get beat up, sued or marginalized for thinking for themselves or god forbid drawing the wrong conclusion regarding someones "gender". i mean this IS SF afterall, but i do not discriminate against anything. i do object to using status to oppress others and marginalize people. all i am saying here is that everyone is special, or no one is special. i have not witnessed any sexual harassment or violence at NB. that does not mean i am in complete disbelief as to whether it has happened or not, but merely that perhaps i do not recognize the latest fashionable indicators of such unexcellence, due to me being an obsolete gender....a museum peice from a time when there were less (dare i say it) things to bitch about, and more stuff to do....when we played outside,didnt have computers...kids, do you remember a world without cel phones?
> I do, and it is interesting to me that it would appear that with the i net and cel phone, the mighty rise of queer identity, that the self righteous arbiters of morality have now become as oppressive as those unenlightened folks before them.
