    Have you considered a different career? Writing is certainly not what you should be doing.

  • New Call of Duty commercial sparks controversy
    To be honest, I think that this commercial is being taken way too seriously. I watched it and I just sat back and laughed. Why does everyone have to take everything to seriously nowadays? Everything is much more enjoyable if taken with a sense of humour.

    I'm not sure if the woman with the shotgun during the building breach is a "young girl" or not.

    Educators are always looking for "teachable moments" to help students with their learning experiences, and the above post gives me the opportunity to help the BC3 community appreciate The Cube as a forum for thoughtful expression of ideas. We considered deleting the post and leaving in its place a notice that it was removed for offensive content, but instead we will use it to make a point. John Watson posted a well-crafted, well-researched review of cell phones. He understands that people may disagree with his review, and he welcomes reasonable discussion about it on the blog. However, when the anonymous poster calls the author a bastard, he or she crosses the line from criticizing his review to attacking him personally. In a forum that is designed to promote the free discussion of ideas and is supported by the U.S. Constitution, particularly the First Amendment, to that end, when people start attacking each other personally, the open discussion of ideas that promotes advancement in our society suffers because such attacks can turn people with worthy ideas away from the discussion. John, myself, and the rest of The Cube staff and contributors welcome your thoughts, even if you don't agree with us, but ask that you refrain from attacking anyone personally. Thank you. Susan Seibel, Advisor to The Cube.
