    Scruffy-looking newf herder!


    Who's heard of the term "binkelschlosser"? That's a real nasty one in Wisconsin's Polish communities.

    here in central New Hampshire, the three worst insults you can be called are "Friggin Quebecois!!!", "M*******", or "Republican"

    What about F.I.B.?

    "Cack" is a rather odious North English term, as I've been told.

    A Sarchasm arises.

    Like I said in my post on the other page, this was unneccesary and just stupid.

    But Vert has apologised, and lets all move on.

    Somehow I doubt that DP will be shedding tears over the incident.

    Of course, I cant help but to think that this bit of stupididty was turned into a major DRAMA point by one or two people with their own little agendas.

    It seems with Vertical's "apology" yet another JC Mod indiscretion has been resolved.

    I would suggest putting darthy, darthpsychotic, Luke Skyywalker, or whatever the hell he's going by this week on your watched user list. That way you can monitor darthy's future titles. I would also suggest that the ADVISORY COUNCIL take up this matter of so called "admin abuse" as well.

    Let's not forget the good that some JC Mods do such as shutting down the Blue Yoda Society Thread in the Prequels Forum.

    Good god. [face_plain]

    Why thank you to the both of you. Coming from a 17 year old and a 20 year old, respectively, that really means something. Really. [face_plain]

    I hope it's a sock. That would just reinforce my point.

    Well, my original post was locked (still can't figure out why exactly, even with the explanation) and this one looks to be going downhill.

    Anyways, thanks Vert for the apology. You could've just not said anything and gotten away with it, even though I knew it was you from the start from deductive reasoning (posts made in another thread) I wasn't going to tattle on you. Even though I felt the word choice was inappropriate (not quite "fun") I appreciate you accepting the blame.

    So will there be any disciplinary action taken against this person for his/her use of a racial slur?

    I dunno, I think "imbicile" would have been a more apt title.

    Okay, I'm not involved and I really think it is dp's issue if he wants action taken, but I think the fact Vertical apologised was...well...the right thing to do!

    Apologising takes courage and guts and although the title (racial slur, or geek statement I don't care) wasn't correct I think it was good of Vertical to admit that he was wrong...

    Just my opinion
