Respectfully Argumentative Commenters Club

    RESPECTFULLY ARGUMENTATIVE COMMENTORS CLUB

    "Everyone is entitled to their own opinion" is the one cliche phrase that bothers me around hubpages.  It all but eliminates responsibility for all concerned when it comes to GOOD TASTE or BAD TASTE.  As if good taste is something we just made up to torture the unenlightened. 

    If you get more joy from Mariah Carey than Jeff Buckley, that is your choice BUT IT'S STILL WRONG!  ...which brings me to my idea for a club.

    The RACC as we will be called, will be comprised of hubbers who LIKE TO have meaningless conversations about life without learning a lesson A LA THE ENTIRE PLOT of SEINFELD!

    Also like SEINFELD we will have characters "... with no roots, vague identities, and a conscious indifference to morals" among other things. But respectfully.  The 'NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT' rule will apply. 

    Qualification RULE #1:  You must have NO SPAM intentions for Business but are free to EMAIL ((OTHER RACC MEMBERS ONLY!)) with 1, I repeat ONE email about a new hub publishing since most of us operate without being notified automatically.  We will then proceed to argue with you about your topic. 

    Qualification RULE #2:  NOT PERSONAL:  Entertainment purposes only.  You can say the nastiest thing about MARIAH if you choose but NOT about the MARIAH fan you are arguing with. 

    Any other thick skinned hubbers seeking stimulating arguments instead of light-hearted compliments should join TODAY!

    To join RACC (I still need to see if hubpages will allow this first) just email me!

      Thanks Kathryn.

      I don't usually get such nice nicknames. LOL!

      I SHOULD ALSO MENTION I'M REALLY ONLY LOOKING FOR A FEW.   5 GOOD RACC's and we'll be off and running.  Our hubs will have the best threads to read after we break it all down and a good sense of humor is a must!

      I should also mention that I HATE RADIOHEAD!  So now all of you intellects out there who think they're God's gift can unleash your venom on me.  I'll call them crybabys, and you'll call them genius'.  Ditto COLDPLAY.....yawn. 

      FOR THIS DJ, life should be like the movie HI-Fidelity.  Debate TOP5's all day long with no real correct answer.

      If you like Nickelback or Creed or Journey, you probably shouldn't join because you have bad taste...although it would be fun to mess with your little-brain!   If you like the Allman Brothers and Lou Reed and OutKast then that means that regardless of the GENRE...you have very good taste!!!   AND WE WANT YOU!!!

      If you only like Rock and have absolutely no interest in learning about Reggae or Hip-Hop than YOU are TOO closed minded and we don't want you.  We want open-minded intelligent wise-asses.  JON STEWART would be ideal.  If anybody has his number....?

        DJ, My son thinks Seinfeld is da bomb, but both of my daughters and I think it stinks. Maybe it's a guy thing. Any other females care to elaborate?
        There are a couple of scenes that I think are hilarious, but not enough to count.

        I love Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm because these shows are about zanny characters who end up in ridiculous situations.

          Okay we're gaining momentum now........OKAY now somebody insult the other one and we'll have our first chick fight! Ready....Go!  Kidding.

          I hope the silly spirit of this thread comes through.  Smiling sarcasm can be seen as much meaner when you can't see the smile.   I wish someone would just come to one of my hubs and let me have it on any subject and then a fun battle of wits would take place....ah, I can dream.   I'm really not trying to upset anyone....just trying to find like minds....

          Re: SEINFELD, agreed it is not what we once thought it was in terms of genius.  I just thought it would bring out the OTHER LARRY DAVID-types like me who hold the public  accountable to OUR OWN RULES even though we had no right making them in the first place.  It's a twisted way to play but...it's me.

    No not crybaby! We had Criketing team mate punch his good mate. The wild one hit a six and the cry baby went cry cry all the way home to Mommy. He will most likely get an Osca.
    The other guy after his six, scored 11 misses in a row. Not soon enough.

        However after reading Jerrico's new hub I no longer think this is a good idea.  I like all the sweet people here and since no one seems interested anyway...oh well.  It's funny in my head but pretentious and nasty on paper.   <Embarassed>

        There was no logic in my argument anyway..."People who like Journey have a 'little brain'?" WTF!  Stupidest statement yet.  What's funny is that now I'm having the argument I wanted with myself of a few dozen hours ago.  <Shaking Head>

            He's giving helpful advice to newbies (which I am) and saying that all it takes is one LUNATIC that who argue with and suddenly your entire online existence is threatened...

            Perhaps I'm overreacting but I like it here.

            If you join The RACC dark side....WOW suddenly there's a whole new crediblilty to it.  Many sheep would follow.  I am apparently not a good shepherd at all.

            I'M ALWAYS UP FOR A CONTEST THOUGH!

            What about an official RESPECTFULLY AGRUMENTATIVE COMMENTERS CLUB DAY thoughout hubpages where everybody just got it all off their chests and then tomorrow we can go right back to...."Oh I just loved your hub.  It was so informative..cliche cliche cliche..."

            Like the people who watch one of my DJ INSTRUCTION videos and all they say is "Hey great vid!" ~~ I'm sitting there like REALLY...did you even watch it?      What was great?  The cinematography????  It's a digital camera on a box of tissues.....ya know?

            Your brain is at least oval shaped if u like them though.  It would have to be in order for windbag Steve Perry to enter your ears properly.    SEND HER MY LOVE indeed.
