Since members on the forum used to be called cdfreaks it's hard to take exception with freaks.
To me when the word bigot is used (except in extereme cases) it points the same word back at the user. The user being intollerent of the views or something else about the person he lables a bigot.
A word more suited to Hitler or David Duke.
To quote Wombler:
IMO bigot is neither civil or polite.
I don't think this was a publicity stunt & this is why.
Phil Robertson would do the same thing again even if he didn't get the suspension lifted . His family did this time & would again support him by joining him again in the suspension even if it meant the show was cancelled.
On the other hand I do think A&E turned it into a publicity stunt for their own purpose . If they were taking a real stand they would have went ahead & cancelled the show reguardless of income loss from doing so.That & other networks already making offers for the show.
A&E decided not to lose the money.
