i admit it’s kinda creepy, but if that’s what someone wants to remember, he or she shouldn’t have to take it down.

if it’s about expressing freely, it’s a right. i know some may not agree with it or find it offensive, but it’s the same with jokes and stuff. it’s okay to say not so nice things about some people, and not others, because of offensiveness and so on. … i don’t know where i’m going with this. 😳
