Faggot an acceptable word now? Aug. 8th, 2011 @ 11:07 PM

Because I keep seeing tons of n00bs posting the F word, mostly in quotation form, and yet their posts stay there all clean and undeleted, and they look pretty unbanned to me.

Yep. Yep yep.

I thought it was always acceptable here. The only word you cant say is the n word because its extra bad apparently.

I have noticed this a lot recently too. And I have been wondering the same as you. Why aren't they getting deleted and the poster banned? Strange but true.

Not to be picky or anything, but I don't see anything about it in the rules. Either the mods are sleeping around now or these are some new times for the BBS.


Bananular.

It may be acceptable, but doesn't mean everyone should use it all the time.


I can't come up with a decent saying, since everyone copyrights everything.

I noticed that too. I don't think I've ever said it on here, just cause I don't wanna get banned. But there have been so many times where I wanted to.

You get banned for saying the word dummy, so really I must question the same thing.

You aren't allowed to call other users faggots, faggot itself can be used.

It's acceptable for anyone else besides me to use it. People can say it and not get away with it all they want, but if I say it once, yeah, I'll be gone for a week.

I think faggot is only banned when referring to one user. as in User X is a faggot. not sure if the noobs are doing that specifically though

I asked Dry-Ice to explicitly explain the use of the word to me, this is what he said:

If you call someone a faggot or use it in an obviously derogatory sense, then yeah you'll probably get banned.

It depends on how it's used, but to be 100% just don't use it at all.

That was a few years ago though. Maybe Mod consensus has changed.

Though I would assume it just hasn't been caught the times you have seen it. Or maybe not, I don't know.

Nope, I got banned for a week once for saying that facebook is a "website owned by faggots".

That's a bunch of rubbish. I call people faggots all the time and nothing ever happened.

Maybe it depends on the context, honestly I don't see a problem with the word, it's just a word.

I guess it's a bananable offence when you're using it in a derogatory fashion to actually bully a gay person.

That why no one gets banned for saying, "If you don't like X woman, you're a fag." to a straight person, because it's subject to taste in women. It's because it's clearly different from, "Hey, suck my dick you flaming faggot." to an actual gay person.

I used to hate the word fag/faggot...
however, I've come to actually have an appreciation for it.
mostly because it pisses people off :)
