    Maybe the liberals should start carbon-dating airliners, and see what they come up with.

    Apparently, if you try to carbon-date a cockroach, it turns out to be millions of years old, if people can be gullible enough...

    A few years ago the state park here had a class about how insects have nutritional value. They even had some different dishes using insects. One of them had cockroaches.
    I ate a chocolate covered cricket. It took a lot of nerve. I wouldn't be caught dead eating a roach. They're ugly and gross me out.

    We may not, simply may not(!) suspend the ToS even at the request of an esteemed Member.

    I can not believe that there are so many Moderators who are willing to forego their commitment here. The Terms of Service are very clear.

    Sure, one of our more legalistic members may cite, "The staff reserves the right to wave this term if it is deemed to be good-natured fun."

    Let me say this once: Section 2.5 does not apply to cockroaches! That was never the intent of the original author and I would defy anyone to show that it was meant to allow such a travesty as this. What next? Will our BACK TO TOPIC emote/icon be replaced?

    Section 2.5 states: "Do not "call out" other members by name who you have a disagreement with in the OP of a new thread or in a thread they are not already in."

    I protest this inequality! Why should cockroaches be allowed to call others out by name, if we're not allowed to call them out by name?

    What do you think?
