Found it.  Interesting.  Thank you for readings.

The vocallic transcription was different on Wikipedia.  Damn I should learn to 
read hebrew.  I just learnt arabic and russian, and some letters seems to look 
something alike… and I see they have too numbers and meanings… damn I love

I don’t like the term “bigot”.  It seems mainly used against individual, for 
individual purposes.  Not a very social term.  I do not like “hysterical” 
neither, hovewer, but I don’t want it “removed from language”, just not (at 
least less) used as an insult as it was for the reasons it was.  Anyway won’t 
cancel words, only usage, and that’s up to locutors.  Will come with time.  Or 

So I don’t agree with this sentence.  I only stated my opinion, about a word, 
not about you (don’t worry), and I didn’t even said to stop using a word x) 
actually maybe I said “stop insulting”, at least… but that maybe have been 
achieved through clarification?

I’ve always fought insults by understanding)
