    Learn something new every day around here. I guess we should all do our part to create ban requests when we see this kind of thing in the main forum. Seeing as how the moderators aren't doing it, they only seem to become activated on the N-word.

    Tier 1 Violation

    These violations will definitely get you banned without any warnings.
    Mods will always be on the lookout for these.
    1. Excessive bashing based on race/sex/gender/sexual orientation.

    Eh, thats why this sub-forum is better for topics we can all discuss. You cant regulate the entire site. People that would tend to violate that rule, arent going to come here most likely.

    I personally dont take anything like racism or sexism comments in the main forum seriously anyhow, we must not forget this is OT!

    Agreed...I dont really take offence to people calling me gay or saying faggot unless they truly mean it in hate

    I don't generally take offense, but with all the nonsense in the main forum about the N-word. I don't like unequal treatment is all.

    I do take offense to people that use it constantly and the ones that use it as a generic derogatory term, as if I'm not there reading the thread. It's become worse than N-word lately, as they have figured out that they can't use the N-word without being banned. So now everything is "gay" or "faggot" etc etc.

    i wish there was an internet equivalent of my real world reaction to being called faggot, which is to whip out my dick and wave it, that would not get me banned from the site.

    meh.

    I think this thread is created once every 2-3 months.

    never gets anywhere - ppl who are offended continue to be offended. And I continue to pass over threads and people who use the word.

    Just here to gauge how the rest of you feel about it. I tend not to be so complacent about things (if you hadn't noticed) and I tend to speak my mind. I just don't get how they enforce rule #1 on the N-word and it's use, yet they let Faggot slide.

    What really kills me is the mod Emfuser defending the use of the word Faggot. I guess thats what really got me going. Defending the derogatory use of the word against gay people, infront of all the members of OT and telling them that it perfectly fine to use because the Mods don't care, as long as it's not the N-word.

    Actually gays made the internets. I happen to have known a few of the gay people that made the internet what it is today, from IRC people (#gay being one of the first three and the most popular channels) to the people that started Concentric Network Services (the networking company that engineered, implemented and marketed the internet to companies like IBM, AT&T, Bell Labs, Microsoft) that was started by 2 gays Marc Rector 26 and Chad Shackley 14.

    I won't argue that is was realistically the hidden nature of the internet that allowed it to grow so rapidly for so long. Porn being the large movement that brought so much money into the game, but having a safe haven for the GLBT community is what made things so lop sided for the first 10 years of the internet being around. /podium

    "whats up my fayg?"

    kinda like, "whats up my nigga?"

    okay i'll stop being "cute" cause i realize its not really "cute" or even funny :hs:

    Well...my two cents...

    ...it offends me, in fact, it really offends me. Not to imply that I let it get to me, or that it gets me down, really just that I see all this offensive shit and think of the places in the US and in the world where this type of language and attitude is common place in everyday language, and not just on the internet. I think that there are places where queer people have to deal with a great deal larger amount of shit than I do, and it sort of internally pisses me off.

    I come from a different board system, IGN, where I was a moderator for about 5 years, and we managed to pretty successfully quash that kind of shit. We weren't fooling ourselves in to thinking that we were changing the minds of the people who would otherwise be posting homophobic garbage, but we were able to maintain an environment where people didn't have to read it everywhere.
