Personally, I see nothing wrong with the silly jokes, and they were harmless fun. If one is to take each and every comment so seriously and compare with the situation in where he or she lives, we would have have lots of deletions to do.
The Admins themselves have participated in the thread with quite a number of posts. If there really was something wrong, they would have deleted them a long time ago. Anyway, I will leave to the Admins to decide on the matter.
While waiting for Sam or Peter to reply, DO NOT comment on this thread anymore. Any new comments from members after this will be deleted and reported to the Admins.
