Food for thought - who in their right minds bashes people who are already down?

On the other hand, bashing because of envy......

And waiting.......

Sanjiv, have you been on the toddy already?

Precisely who is it that you think is doing any bashing?

Ok, wrong choice of words, Maybe because FNDC and WNDC are closed for business and I think very clearly after doing business with them.

I'm missing a word that explains people categorising a race in a negative manner..... let me think, no, its gone.

Anything stronger? Stereotyping signifies good and bad characteristics being applied across the demography. Didn't see that happening.

Since my remarks are making you guys uncomfortable, I retract the 'bashing' word.

Like I said elsewhere, it was all in jest so we will let it lie. :D

Not really. Stereotyping must have the component of oversimplification and prejudices so technically this word maybe even too strong here and not applicable if the "bashing" is based on facts only. Pointing out some negative aspects can be as mild and innocent as an ethnic group profiling.

Negative stereotyping?

But as I have no idea what you are actually talking about I can't help further! In any case I think this game is getting rather boring.
