Question okay...

Smoochie, thanks for your input, but once again I'm asking all the cryptogrammers on this site if they have any ideas as to the true identity of the Doug Horton who made the quote about human excrescence, and about the mailing thereof to an enemy? Was he truly a Protestant minister who was involved with Ecumenical relations? As I've previously posted, it seems unlikely he was a stock car racer of minor repute.



Or is he this Doug Horton?oug Horton, president of Northeast Oklahoma Real Estate Services the multiple listing service that compiles home sales data said the number of people from other states looking at homes in the area is growing, especially now.

Default Offensive

This one has an average offensive rating of 5.5, based on 4 votes.
"This is the month, and this the happy morn, wherein the Son of heaven's eternal King, of wedded Maid and Virgin Mother born, our great redemption from above did bring. " — John Milton
Even if one is not Christian, I'm not sure why this would be offensive.

The following was 9 stars offensive, based on three votes.
"Do not do unto others as you would that they should do unto you. Their tastes may not be the same. " — George Bernard Shaw
Is irreverent the same as offensive, now?

I guess both reverent and irreverent are offensive - though likely to different folks.

The next was ten stars for offensive. I guess you can't say anything about neurotics, either.
"Neurotics complain of their illness, but they make the most of it, and when it comes to talking it away from them they will defend it like a lioness her young. " — Sigmund Freud
