No, I'm not. Stop putting words in my mouth.

Can you define this "universally recognised standard of goodness"? As far as I'm aware, no such code exists.

Give it your best shot, though. My bet is that I'll be able to name countless societies who adhere to no such code.

I'm not putting words in your mouth - your managing very well, all by yourself. Smile

That's exactly what I was asking earlier ... why would he reveal this now?
Because he's essentially a good guy, and he wants everyone to know that he had his demons to wrestle with?  He's not lily white, like the rest of us.... he happens to be in the public eye, so any revelation is going to be.... like... OMG......  it's not all that....no  He's a human being who is being honest about himself... I think that's a good thing....

You said that I called Hazel an idiot. I did no such thing. You built a strawman, as you so often do.

Now, can you define this "universally recognised standard of goodness"? The very fact that you think one exists tells me that you live in your own world, where your moral code is the definitive version.

Well - I think we're going to have to agree to disagree on this one.  I think his statement could possibly upset a lot of people - namely his fans.  On the other hand (I'm great at playing Devil's Advocate) perhaps the circle he moves in just says "uh huh" and moves on.

Perhaps you need to stop making such sweeping statements which are so open to attack. Smile

Why would it upset them? Is it his responsibility to consider the reaction of every person who happens to be a fan? You can't please everyone. He took crystal meth. Who really cares? He experimented and it's his body to experiment with. It doesn't make him a bad person, nor does it change who he is today even in the slightest.

I don't think this is about his fans.  This man is a person.... he did what he did at the time and he's 'fessed up.  I've no doubt it upsets a lot of people, and I've no doubt it upsets him more..... Takes a lot of guts to admit you were wrong.......

It wasn't a sweeping statement. In fact, it was a very specific statement. People who take the moral high ground are simply not people I care for a whole lot. That does not include Hazel. However, it does include you.

Love how you avoided the question. I guess this universal moral code you mentioned doesn't exist, after all. Either back up what you say or engage your brain before you hit "post".

You really are a thug.  Seemingly incapable of debating your point without hurling abuse.

No, Daisy, I just don't like you. I don't like how deceitful you are. You are immune to reason and deliberately provocative.

Keep going the way you're going and the whole forum will be onto you. You'll be forced to create a 3rd MW account just to get people to talk to you.

Are you talking about people getting on their high horse or people choosing to try and take a moral path in their lives? The former tends to be a annoying, the latter is a good thing.

People getting on their high horse. Why do you think that's a good thing?
