It's all about context, and we at MMAF love everyone of all races, sexualities and creeds

If we didn't...it'd be one empty forum
KRY you are a fantastic ***got! I've got no problems with the words themselves but the intent is the issue. The words "nigger" and "***got" should not be offensive because they don't mean anything. We as humans should realise that those words are just words that really have no meaning.

It is far more hurtful if someone breaks it down and truly calls you what you really are.

Easy there bresk. I agree with you about its all just words but the mods still don't like that because most people are sisies who have no sense of humour and take stuff the wrong way. You don't any unnecessary infractions lord knows that beaver twat walker has given me a few

haha KRY won't be upset because he knows there's as much negative intent in what I just said as there is when the mods call Budhi a ladyboy. Walker might infract you for that though. haha

Personally "***got" is a good word, I use it a lot. I am in no way homophobic and have even asked gay friends if they mind, they say "it doesn't matter as long as you aren't using it to discriminate against homosexual people". If someone is being an arsehole i'll very often call them a ***got.

I don't use it a lot on here though because it's hard to interpret intent through text, i'd hate for someone to be offended or upset by something i've said when they've done nothing to deserve such feelings/

I'm completely with you guys when it comes to the interpretation of words. I don't find ANY of those words offensive, and use them quite often joking around with friends.

The difference is, this is a public forum for members aged 13+, and is ran by a company. It is not a forum ran by the staff you see. We have to follow VS rules and respect them. Other people DO find those terms and words offensive, no matter the context, and we cannot, and will not isolate or potentially lose members by allowing it to happen. It just isn't fair.

Yeah I agree wholeheartedly. Hopefully sometime before we die the world will get some sense and realise that the longer we allow those words to sting, is the longer we keep the racists and homophobes and discriminators of all kind armed with verbal ammunition.

And lets face it, is it really such a big deal if we enforce rules on language?

My favourite professor at the university I attended was fond of saying 'profanity is the feeble attempt of a weak mind to express itself forcefully' I tend to agree with this.
