. . . codeword, that is!!

I know, this is probably a dumb idea to bring up this stupid topic again, but seeing as Mishei has refused to rise to the challange of providing any evidence that the word "Halocaust" has some kind of anti-Semitic "codeword meaning, I though it might be instructive to present the information I have found during my weekend search concerning the anti-Semitic use of the word.

Well, to summarize . . . .NONE, NADA, ZILCH!!

Google, meta search engines, checked out Holocaust information sites, checked out many hate group sites, Jewish forums (even joined one to ask the participants there if they had heard of this usage of the word, and no one had,) and have yet to see any reference to Halocaust as any kind of "code word called Halocaust" for anything let alone for anti-Semitic hate.

Now, since I have made an honest attempt to determine whether the use of the word "Halocaust" should be offensive to anyone (whether mispelled or used in that form on purpose) I would now expect that responsibility of proof belongs with Meshei in regards to showing us that the word is indeed offensive, otherwise not only has Meshei committed a slander, but has himself participated in the "minimzation" of the Holocaust by making up (or perpertrating an extreme exaggeration of) an offensive "codeword" on the backs of 6 million dead Jews, just to attempt to deride a discussion board thread that wasn't presenting an argument he was comfortable discussing.

In addition, I hope this will keep the discussionof misspelled "codewords" from derailing other topics!

I keep spelling it "halocaust" by accident, and editing my posts. I knew how to spell it until I started thinking about it!

On second thought, let's not bait Mishei. He's being so nice today.
