    I love the idea that you see mentioning stalking as something cool, but rape crosses the line by being stupid.

    Either don't make jokes at all, or don't try and limit what areas can be used for humour. Every joke conceivable can probably be construed as offensive to somebody, somewhere. I hate it when people say things like "Oh, I find that joke funny but then you shouldn't go and joke about cancer because my mum had it and that's not funny". You're basically stifling freedom of speech, and acting like a prudish prick at the same time.

    Dissaproving of rape jokes makes me a 'prudish prick':rolleyes:. Furthermore are you attempting to stifle my freedom of speech to criticize his joke? Pot,kettle,black springs to mind.

    If you seriously want to try and descend things into a convoluted pedantic debate along the lines of don't-impinge-on-my-right-to-try-and-impinge-on-others'-rights things will get very complicated very quickly.

    The point still remains that it is pathetic of you to criticise an individual for cracking a joke when just a few posts earlier you were making a joke that a stalking victim could easily have found "really really offensively stupid".

    I disagree, I guess we all draw the line somewhere, mine comes somewhere slightly south of 'internet stalking'.
