  1. I think the stoppies are great. You have to be able to have a laugh. When things get to the level of seriousness, they lose all their fun and become competitive which leads to all sorts of drama.

    As for some of the more explicit categories, no one is forcing people to vote, participate or listen. Parts of society are explicit, people have to accept this, even if they don’t agree with it. It is very similar to pornography. Some people don’t like it / are against it and that is ok, because they don’t have to buy it or be involved with it. It is a similar situation here, you don’t have to participate.

    In my view, I think it is great. The explicit categories make for some fun times and are realistic, playing on the unspoken interactions that are there.

    That’s just my two cents. Everyone should have the right to do as they wish and not be controlled or ridiculed otherwise.
