I guess it would depend on the mod/admin, but racism is one of the few things we ban people permanently for.Goatstack said:

Well thanks for the definitions there, Encyclopedia Brown. I'm sure none of us knew the definitions of either until your informative post.Goatstack said:Racism
- The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others.
- Used as a disparaging term for a member of any socially, economically, or politically deprived group of people.
Now, these terms don't match up. Why would you assume I was a racist if I simply called someone a '******'?
Well, the wrong person saying in real life would likely get their ass beat. Online it's a bit more tricky, especially since we can't immediately tell your race or nationality. Personally, I see no reason I'd ever need to use the word. It's just plain racist, and I'm not. I suppose my white friends might not mind, and maybe a few of my black friends would find it cute or something, but I still don't like it. Likewise I don't go around calling people "kike" or "spic," even if in a joking manner. I'm ot racist, nor do I wish to offend people by using racial slurs. I doubt you can point out one legitimate use of the word though.Goatstack said:I'm not trying to imply that I wish to use it.
I was just reading in another forum and everyone got taboo when someone called someone else a '******'.
I found it inane that so many would be ok with all the pointless 'bitching' and flaming and yet so upset at one stupid six letter word.
I would bet most of you laugh when you hear Dave Chappelle using it.
I don't see any irony. This is a place to rant, true, but not a place to make others feel inferior or offended for things they can't change. There are enough other things you can flame someone for, and other names you can call them without ever needing to take things to that level.Goatstack said:I'm just thrown off by the irony of this site.
