No one would care, but its basically the same thing and just another way of describing and/or grouping people.
Well sort of except a short LB would be notable because his size is a physical difference from other players in a sport that relies on physical abilities. Race, ostensibly, shouldn't affect on-field performance, so it's not really a useful descriptor.

Agree. If people enjoy MMO - and obviously many do - that's great, but there's no way I am going to invest time in something like that. In the RPG world enemies don't get stronger in my absence, and taking some time off doesn't have negative consequences. MMO is like a job, and we all know people (ex-friends mostly) who have tossed their IRL relationships aside in favor of chasing sprites around.

It's likely he meant to say FPS and not MMO though.

That long list of quotes clearly proves that PHB is racist against whites.

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.
I would say that someone who frequently uses race and racial modifiers in conversation for no really good reason would certainly fit "always thinking about it"

Oh, I agree that's the crime here. I'm just saying that, now that he's actually crossed the line enough to get banned, he might want to take a look at his posts and say "Hmm, maybe I shouldn't go to the race well so much."

He may not even realize he's doing it.

dk's posted some pretty blatant racist stuff- it's just been deleted and he got tempbanned for it. (PHP's ban is a temp as well).

His crime was making an unfunny joke. It also had racist undertones.

Think it's just for a day?

I just walked down to get some take out and on the way there was a group of 4-5 guys moving into a house. Out of nowhere one of them just says, "Hey man, want a beer?" So I got a free beer for the walk. Portland

I'm a huuuuuuuuge Incubus fan.

Assuming you are including Fungus Amongus, I'd say from best to worst:

SCIENCE
Make Yourself (only very slightly worse than SCIENCE; really close)
Morning View
----- big drop off
Light Grenades
A Crow Left of the Murder
------ lol
If Not Now, When?
Fungus Amongus
