Re: *** The Official Isildur1 Thread ***

Isildur just broke durrrr again. He's up over 5 million on him overall now. He had a great session against Antonius too, winning back about 2 million, putting him down about 1.3 lifetime.

Currently 3 tabling Ziigmund.

So so sick.

I think Isildur spent tons of hours studying Durrr's play before stepping into the ring with him!

Sorry to single you out, but I am utterly sick of this phrase (not to mention 'sick') and would like to see it banned from 2p2 forever. (It should also be considered more offensive than f*** or c*** in general usage imo, but that's another story).

Also just wondering how you pronounce Isildur, what syllable is stressed?

Grow up, imo. It's just a word, and in this context it means to steal. There's nothing remotely offensive about it. He was not actually implying that this inanimate 'style' is sexually assaulting durrr. And even if he was, then there's nothing offensive about pointing this out anyway. Stop being so ****ing precious :P

edit: And please, please come back and tell how adopting this word as a colloquialism makes light of a serious situation and perpetuates further victimisation and social apathy. I can't wait.

I do see where you're coming from. I don't like censorship generally, and it is just a word. But I just simply hate the word, and you can't say it 's all about context, the whole point of using a metaphor is to make that connection. And it's not like there aren't plenty of excellent alternatives that could be used that aren't completely tasteless.

How is it tasteless?! It's a perfect metaphor. To rape someone, in this context, is not simply just to beat them. It is to do so emphatically, forcefully; it is to completely control them. It's an effective and concise way of describing what took place. That's what words are for? It's only tasteless if you're taking the metaphor literally, without context, which would be ******ed?

Words are just words. It's the context that counts.

Re: *** The Official Isildur1 Thread ***

If you've 'raped' someone at $500/1000 online you've taken so much more than their money, imo.

I know that using serious language in an arguably trivial context waters down the power of that word, but in this instance...I think it's an appropriate descriptive term.

Does it offend you when they erect a building. I think there is nothing wrong with the term rape in this context, that's what language is for.

Now if he would have said a** rape, I would have agreed with you. Hard not to offend with that.

wtf? That makes no sense at all. How is it any more offensive just because you stipulate that said rape is of the arse? How else would you rape a guy? :P It's a freakin metaphor. It's not offensive unless you take it literally, which would be ridiculous. :|

Stop letting stupid words offend you. People from different places use words differently. We use words out of context all the time that would be offensive if you used in context.

Stop being gay and get over it...

No , my problem isn't with the word itself (rape-seed oil is fine, lol) but I just don't like to see it used in that context, I think it sounds crass. Just a matter of taste I guess.
