Yes I have received infractions in the past. Yes, they were probably because of a bit of immaturity. I just don't feel it is right to start a thread called Redneck Test. Same way as some wouldn't appreciate threads started with "Coon Test", "Almond Eyes Test", etc.
Seriously, you are really going to get offended on behalf of rednecks? Really? I swear, every time I think I have heard it all here, someone comes along and surprises me.
For God's sake, it is a thread about Freaking REDNECKS!!! They are not a race. They are not an endangered species. They are just folk. Lighten up. Eric
And for the record, I have NEVER seen a redneck take the term as derogatory, unless it was obviously intended that way.
