Intelligent debate. I love it. =D
aethyal. First, that thread is basically a flame fest right now, (not saying another wouldn't be). I understand what you are saying though.
I hope that we all agree, flame fest or not, you may still use a thread as the title suggests. If you were afraid of having your post lost in the sea of idiocy, then I can certainly understand the need for a new thread. That being said, there is still no excuse to title it "Japanese Player Warning".
Second, I find it funny how so many people now, (not just you everyone) get offended by just mentioning the word Japanese
I didn't get, nor am I, offended by your post or the word "Japanese". To offend me is to cause me "displeasure, anger, resentment, or wounded feelings" according to dictionary.com. I was only expressing my feelings toward individuals, such as yourself, that feel it's neccessary to seperate JP players from NA players. Where is the line drawn?
Think of it like this: If an african american person committed a serious crime and you had to put out a bulletin, would you leave out the description and fact that he's African American?
Absolutely not. Posting in a "Bad Player" thread about a JP player you met that wasn't a top notch person is perfectly acceptable. However, you have created an entire thread dedicated to bad JP players. The previous threads were never designated as NA only threads. If they were, I missed it and digress.
Don't get me wrong here, I have met my share of horrible JP players, mostly while mining or camping NM's. That doesn't give me the right to put them in a category of their own, set aside away from NA players. As mentioned in my previous post briefly, I wouldn't start a thread about bad Mexican players just because there are some. There are bad Caucasian players, African Americans, Mexicans, Indians, Canadians, Italians, French, Greeks, Romans, etc, etc, etc.
My point is that I, personally, don't feel it's right to segregate players (in thread form) based on their ethnicity. I don't feel there is anything wrong with your post, I appreciate the information about a bad player. I only disagree with the title of your thread.
Edit: Greenfource, I rated you up, btw, only for not replying with a "Well, you suck and I rule" type of reply. ^^ Edited, Mon Oct 4 13:14:06 2004 by aethyal
