Gee, you guys wouldn't be BIAS would you? Leah can call anyone who enjoys working at McDonald's "stupid" and yet as soon as I try and even out the score I am jumped on. How predictable.

McSpotlight: Dionne, you would be advised to make it clear *exactly* who you are levelling this charge at.

Mike's contribution to the previous post was "Working for McDeath's has clearly not done anything for your manners."

- which was personal abuse, which we do not encourage here on the Debating Rooms. To this, we replied that "Look, we do discourage personal attacks here; and we would rather posters had a debating point to make, rather than just levelling one-liners at those whose attitude they dislike..."

Firstly, your post was far longer than one line; secondly, it was not just personal abuse (although it contained personal abuse). We added a footnote in your defence, even though you were far from guiltless. Mike recognized it as such and apologized to us via mail.

Your assumption that we were automatically attacking you because you were pro-McDonald's is somewhat premature and insulting, given that the last footnote we inserted was in your defence. An apology would be appreciated.
