Re: racist user name

Just in case anyone needs any convincing that it is indeed racist. Every dictionary defines the word as offensive:

dictionary.com
merriam-webster
lexico
cambridge
Oxford

Here's an article from American Civil Liberties Union:

ACLU

27offsuit's solution seems like the best way to go.

Re: racist user name

i'd be totally fine if the name was changed to "hailtothefootballteam"

but as it is, i'm deeply offended.

please change the name, or delete the account.

other similar words are not allowed here

Re: racist user name

Agree that kind of name should not be allowed. Seems like an obvious slur.

Hell, even the NFL and Dan Snyder have recognized that it's no good.

Are we really behind Dan Snyder on issues like this????

Check out the cavalier racism and sexism in this thread and you probably have your answer.

Re: racist user name

This is a racist term and widely acknowledged as such. With the football team changing its name, there's no excuse for allowing it here.

Re: racist user name

Please do not allow the name on 2+2, be it in a comment or in a username. It is a hateful term and contributes negatively to the 2+2 community.

Co-sign that the person should be forced to pick a new user name and that the current one should be tweaked until they do.

Re: racist user name

I would assume so. Mods in general haven't received any more notification on that front than any other users (or at least I haven't, via mass PM or anything like that).

One way to get their attention may be in the NVG thread eyebooger linked to, though given some of the toxic content there I'd probably limit it to just linking this thread to make sure they're aware of it.

Doubtful since the “Hail to” thing is a direct reference to a specific chant people do at football games iirc

Chant?



Also, your sarcasm detector might need adjusting.
