CAN SOMEONE HELP ME?? BEFORE I BLOW A VESSEL...

I submitted a quiz and I was given this response.

Please modify the quiz appropriately and resubmit. Thanks again!

HUH? Can we be more specific? Was the title degrading? Was there a question that was repeated (no, there wasn't btw)

Of course I can't even ask the appropriate viewer of the quiz what was wrong with it...or can I?

Thanks peeps.

Perhaps if you tell the name of the quiz here, the editor of it will see that, go back and be more detailed in what they write to you??

Hope so!

It is called, "Celebrities who st..st..stutter"
Which I modified and put "Celebrities who st..st..stuttered"
I also wrote that it is not meant to be offensive.

Hard to appease the gods sometimes.

I had a terrible stuttering problem as a child. Still, to this day, if I have to start a question/statement with something that starts with a hard C or W, I will occasionally have to take a second to get the sound ready to go. I usually just try to think of a way to rephrase it.

I would take your quiz and not be offended at all,....I see nothing wrong with it.

Now if you were to say 'Famous Left-handed People who Stuttered',...that hits too close to home. I'm a lefty too!. LOL

I have been lurking on this one just to see what the "Offense" was. I think the whole country is a little over the top on political/social correctness. Too many people are insulted by terms and words that are harmless and innocent. Glad to see that this site falls into the honest category. Just a thought.

I took your quiz, Citrusy...it was very good and I didn't find it offensive in the least but then, I don't stutter. Queen Elizabeth's father stuttered so badly he could hardly give a speech at first, until Elizabeth's mother patiently helped him and he very well.

We all need to lighten up a bit anyway. There was an Iraq war veteran on TV last night, showing how well he was doing in learning to surf. Someone paid for his lessons. He had lost an arm and a leg in Iraq. He said,with a big smile, "If I had to pay for surfing lessons, it would cost an arm and a leg and I don't have any more parts to spare." Gosh, you just root like hell for someone like that! God bless him and all the others who are giving up so much of their lives.

Thanks to all who have taken the quiz and (LOL) helped me out! I was shocked to see that it got a Editors Choice Award!!

"I would like to thank the academy for this w-w-wonderful award" (Just kidding folks!)

I know that we live in a very PC world and none of my quizzes are meant to offend!
Thanks to all (even those demi-gods we call editors. They are allowed to make mistakes...just no more with me K???)
