CROCOP Reply to Hrvach37: A very good question. Everyone has a right to have an opinion. But spitting on someone makes no sense. If he feels happy that way, let it be. But, they should look at the mirror and ask themselves who gave them the right to judge other people and things that they are not familliar with, things that they saw on TV. They should ask themselves if they would have the courage to step into the ring. There's an old saying - don't talk to the fools because people might not tell the difference
Hrvach37 What's your opinion on people who put you down and spit on you?
CROCOP Reply to satyr: Once again doesn't sound too painful (laugh)
