Whoa, whoa, whoa, I'm not taking a "let's stop hunting human beings for sport" position here. I'd just like some better AI in single player video games, that's all.

Tuq, I thought Mw3's campaign was pretty fun, albeit very short.

saying that the n-word describes a black person = racist

saying that "ginger" is an anagram for the n-word = factual

I can't fathom tinkering around in a dungeon for 6-7 hours, how do you not hate the game?

Noted. I sold CoD3 after having buyer's remorse and still haven't opened BF3 so I'll just wait a year or whatever until that price drops.

Lots of leveling up, plus the satisfaction of delivering a death blow to these cockjousting draugrs. There is clearly reward in defeating harder enemies. Better than walking around the woods in circles and killing random wolves with a single blow.

Plus dungeon isn't the right word for Forelhost, it's more like a series of underground rooms where unfriendly skeletons with swords and arrows congregate.

ok, but if someone called phb a "cracker" would they get banned? I am not doing this so please dont ban me. Also, I never ever use the N word (and its pretty much the only word that I universally avoid in the English language) nor am I fighting for it to be allowed, but it seemed like a failed attempt at humor rather than racism. Different parallel, if tarheels (only using him bc I dont know most posters' races) used it would it be more tolerable? It seems like it is in society based on my observations throughout the years, but wondering about forum rules.

Mods, could you chime in?

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Skyrim, Werewolf and Forum Discussion

its pretty simple

my post is how someone points out the anagram thing

his is how someone points out the anagram thing while implying that a black person (Cam) can be referred to as an N bomb.

the implication is obv not cool

It gets pretty interesting if you search for posts in this forum by phb with the words "white" and "black" in them respectively

imo

no and yes

there is a double standard when it comes to the use of racial slurs. such a double standard has never once affected my life.

And since all the fun's in PKing and stripping people off their stuff, you gotta be a nolife OR be a boring, monster-killing grinder who'll never make it.

You know, you might not notice one of these individually, but when you stack them all together like this...

These are almost all from like the last two months fwiw. I don't even have a beef with phb or anything, but the guy sure is, uh, casual about how he uses race in discussions.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Skyrim, Werewolf and Forum Discussion

id say being casual about it is much less racist than people who are overly sensitive about it

people who are always playing the race card are probably racists themselves bc theyre always thinking about it. people should just treat everyone the same and race shouldnt really matter.

this is how I feel. terms that clarify race are usually just added descriptors when I use them and I think I hear/see them that way too. I mean, the texans linebacker thing is clearly just a descriptor. What if they were all under 5'9" or something and he said "GOAT short LBs?" No one would care, but its basically the same thing and just another way of describing and/or grouping people.
