Hey man, that's fine. I don't dig their stance on hatred either, but that wasn't the topic of this thread.
As for the twitter stuff, I really don't care. I figure watching NBC or whatever will give me plenty of insight as to what's going on -- I don't need to see someone from the New Orleans Times Picayune tweet a blurry phone pic of the hockey arena.
As for the cursing, tone is important, especially on a message board. I'm sure since that's the case you'd have no problem going to Russia and telling them they're a "piece of shit" country or whatever.
You're right, I clearly overreacted here - especially since, to be clear, it really hasn't impacted my day one way or the other. I just think in principle it's asinine is all. Calling a whole country a piece of shit wasn't necessary.
Twitter actually doesn't do much for me either with that type of stuff, but again it's just a matter of principle. All of that stuff dramatically increases attention of the Olympics, it doesn't hurt it.
Either way, I should have kept my emotions around the other issue separate from this discussion.
