We all get along just fine and we harbor no visible hate toward anyone regardless of back ground. Like i said, if the rule is simply:

    it's my forum and we'll do things how i want them, period

    then fine we know what the rules are. But if the rule is no racial slurs, well then what does it matter to use words that aren't used in the context of hatred? Some of us who are not racist don't necessarily think negatively or hateful when some of these words are used. I find it that those who are so quick to jump up and want to be 100% pc are generally hiding something.

    Pimach is part black, i have very close personal black friends, and we have a variety of back grounds on this board. i'm beginning to think that perhaps we aren't wanted here specifically because of that. This will probably be deleted so maybe i'm wasting my time with a rational response/explanation.
    boom!!!!!!

    I would say no to using that word because it is a racial slur. I dont care how you use a word if it is in general considered to be a negative against another race, which is in fact a slur. Just because you pretty it up does not change the fact that by definition it is a slur so dont use it.

    I dont care how you or your friends think about the words, you and your friends make a tiny less that 1/10 percent of the population minority, your feelings on the subject are in the minority. So what you believe to be acceptable in this case is really not. If you are in your home with people you know then fine. If you start your own message board than fine use whatever language you want.

    Just because you may be or your friends are a certain race does not mean you can use words that might offend other people simply because you are of that ethnic persuasion, I think Bill Cosby has covered this. I dont care about cussing or being brash and rude but when it comes to race it is better to stay on the safe side of the issue.

    If you were at a sporting event that you paid to get into and you started dropping racial slurs in anyway you could be thrown out if one person was offended. They would come and give you a warning then they would escort you out. This is a public forum, the MMA forum is not private and I dont care who the regulars are, I care about those who will visit and see it and scream about it. As I said before just leave this alone and you will most likely never see me mod anything again. IF you cant abide and this is just too much feel free to go somewhere else. I dont understand why you couldn't just abide by a simple rule.

    UGLY - this stuff is all jokes. We talk about more than just MMA here because we all know each other.

    What happened that we went from having a mod that posts here (P-Jersey) to having a mod that now thinks he needs to turn the place on its head? Not like this place was out of control, certainly not by forum standards.

    You are acting like Minimod, where almost nothing can just be left alone. If you want us to leave (making the MMA section like a desert) than this is the way to do it.

    This is a shocking turn of events. This isn't trolling, spamming, hate-speech, attacking...not by any stretch of the imagination. Context is everything.

    In fact, I would say this group is more diverse and accepting than other factions on this site.

    Ugly didn't close your thread, I did.

    He didn't close the other thread either, the extent of his involvement has been editing one post and then going back and forth with you all about it.

    I'm not sure what you mean about when you disclosed what you were. I closed it shortly after I noticed it.

    I know he didnt, i was making a point to him.

    I made the thread, didnt put in there what I was, then others chimed in and I disclosed my ethnicity and next thing you know it closed.
