I don't think it was offensive at all. Some members simply over-reacted, and were reading way too far into it. Even if they were offended, you have freedom of speech, and were not breaking any forum guidelines.

Yeah, but its different when you work as a representative or employee of a company. I was wrong to have had any type of political statements or anything that could be construed as such in my signature.

Sounds to me like some of the diehards read Rainbow 6 and took it too seriously. In the book, the IRA -Sean Grady was one of the main culprits.

Anyways, I'm Irish blooded myself. I read the sig, and wasn't offended by it. Heh, I even wear a hat that say's 'IRISH' in BIG BOLD letters. Puzzling to most -Notre Dame!

I'm not sure what that quote had to do with the IRA, or what someone thought it had to do with them, but Its actually from the movie "A few Good Men."

Here's the quote as it is said in the movie.
Jack Nicholson, Tom Cruise, and Demi Moore are in the sceen of the movie.

Jack Nicolson character is a General stationed in Cuba and says the following.

"I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom I provide, then question the manner in which I provide it. I prefer you said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand to post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to!"

I sent bluetooth a private message about it, maybe he already knows that though. Anyway.

Ironically enough I am watching A Few Good Men on TV right now at the late hour of midnight. I just heard that quote...it has NOTHING to do with the IRA.
