There was no intention and so I do not know why I am censored for "tit
for tat", moderator did not say. But I don't care to be censored. It
probably "offended" somebody. I guess it was a joke... hahhah

That is why PC means "politically correct" and now people who are
getting offended for their opinion that somebody said something
politically incorrect, they call for important social figures to "step
down", or "to resign", or to "cancel" them, and so on.

I am thankful I do not spend my time in such hateful environments.

Look at categories of jokes: accountants, attorneys, aviation, hair
and bald people (sorry Samuel), baby jokes, barbie jokes, children,
clinton, college, and just think -- somebody can always get offended.
