    It sounds like they're being sued as a business.

    It would depend upon the nature of the suit and local laws, as well as his business relationship with Paula, as to if he could be sued. It may be that he is also being sued, but because he's not as famous as Paula, nobody gives a shit, and its not being reported in the media.

    gul, there's just no getting around your own words - "We can't whine about the world we live in, because we are masters of that world. In absolute terms, not true, but it's close enough."

    Do I think you're a racist? No more than Paula Deen.

    My family and I tried to eat at her restaurant in Savannah GA. but when we found out that there was a 3 hour wait we went elsewhere. The guidebook my wife got from the library never mentioned that you pretty much have to get reservations.

    Good grief, these are your words bubba - "We can't whine about the world we live in, because we are masters of that world. In absolute terms, not true, but it's close enough."

    You are referring to white males and why they shouldn't be allowed an opinion.

    Yeah, I've often been likened to other members. Most notably marathon, but also John Castle, Volpone, Diacanu, Captain X... so being called the new garamet is no surprise.

    But more than that I don't mind, I'm happy to be included in their company.

    If true I disagree. You can't ignore warnings but you should be able to ignore posts. Truth is staff folks can't ignore anybody but everybody else should be able to.

    That's what you got from that? :rotfl: I'm gonna start calling you VisionClyde. You're either stupid or purposefully obtuse. Neither is a very distinguishing trait.

    Appropriately enough, given the thread title's reference to "Paula Deen getting slammed," she's been offered a six-figure check by a porn site.

    Well, OK, I guess it's not all that appropriate, since they're only asking her to endorse the site, not star on it.

    Anyway, to heck with endorsing - her and old war-horse Ron Jeremy should team up. I can write the screenplay!

    Para demands this woman be given a second chance!

    Nah, because most of the time when staff give warnings they aren't warnings in the system, but just posts telling people to knock it off.

    Yeah, in-thread warnings would be ignored. Still, there's no reason staff commentary shouldn't be ignorable.

    WTF when she pleaded "I is what I is...."
    Is she trying to be all hip and speak in her version of Ebonics or what?

    It would have been cool if she said:
    "I is what I is....and that's all what I is....I'm Paula the sailor Ma'm."
