    You guys are allowed to dicuss almost anything you want here in the Lounge, as long as things stay somewhat civil. HOWEVER, the next time someone uses the "N" word, regardless of the context, I'm gonna lose my cool.

    I'm not asking you to change the attitudes you have regarding other races. Most of you are grown men, and I'm not here to tell you how to think. I AM, however, here to make sure that things follow a minimum moral code, and the flippant use of the "N" word fits in below that standard.

    Thank you for your time.......

    Let me guess, this has been happening some in the 'Nation of Islam' thread hasn't it? I haven't noticed it really.

    Actually, I know EXACTLY where it was from. That wasn't the point.

    And just in case anybody cares, I had no intention of locking that thread until someone decided to cross the line. In fact, I agreed with 100% of what was said in that thread right until I locked and deleted it.

    I want you all to stop and think about this for a minute. How would it look if CK5 started showing up in a search engine result when someone was searching for that word? Do you want to be associated with it? Do you think Steve Fox wants his name associated with it? I sure don't......:deal:

    It's a wheeler, it's a poser, no, it's a CK5er. Able to squash all meaning from a conversation and hijack any thread in a single bound. :D

    I see your point Can, but I'd like to mention that the term "Cracka" was used in that thread first. If one racial slur is a no-no, then they all should be, even though I could give two ****s if and when someone calls me a cracker.

    edit: why not just add the n-word to the censor list like above.

    Well, Cracker (I'm hesitant to call it the 'C' word :haha: ) is just as bad IMO. Someone using that doesn't make it OK to use any of the others though.

    Oh God, NO!!!! Don't go there, Rene........:doah: :D

    I must have somehow missed cracker(probably because it doesn't have the same visual impact as the other, unless I'm REALLY hungry!!!! :rotfl:). However, I guess nobody was really offended because I never recieved a "notification" about it.........:dunno:

    Sorry, that was my fault. I think I was the first to bring it up anyways, I don't have the thread to look back on obviously. I guess when a racial slur is directed toward my own background I'm a lot less sensitive to it than if it's directed someone else's way.

    EDIT: Paul, it was in a picture, that's probably why you missed it.

    That sounded like a good idea, but then I thought for a minute and realized the plan is to avoid even having to do that...




    But can we still say towel-heads? :haha:

    Mikey d-05 and the others, don't get me wrong, I wasn't offended by the "c-word". I was just trying to make a point that if one racial slur isn't allowed then none should be.
