Whats even funnier is that Peneus likes to poke everyone. Its kinda funny in an uncomfortable kind of way when you see "Peneus pokes Randomperson". Some VE campers were acting like jackasses so he hit them with a few of those. Took them a few minutes to realize what it really said. They promptly left. Hehe.

Only stupid people take offense to people's names like that. I can understand if someone was named "John" and someone deliberately made the name "JohnIsGay" or something similar just to provoke that person. But your case is just an act of asininity.

Well, if the person who reported you was a "Ho", then I'd probably understand that. But the chances... Stupid drama queens. We shall nuke them with... BigMacs. o_O; I bet I'll get reported, because my name doesn't make sense. Mmhmm.

The first time I saw Slapaho I was in the Dunes for the first time back in June or something... I loved it ^.^ , my friend loved it, we all loved it... I'm sorry that your name got changed and my friends are all bummed too, we thought it was cool and entertaining... on a side note about names, I was in the *** chat room on Play-Online during a maintenace/update and was told that my character's name (Brandynn) was the gayest spelling of Brandon (my real name) they had ever seen... and because of my name, people always think of me as a girl and call me Brandy... I love it when they see the Galka walk up and wave, lol... I prefer Brand anyways...

Slapaho... we should get a group of people togethor somewhere and lay your name to rest... possibly in King Ranperre's Tomb...

Just because YOU aren't offended by something doesn't mean everyone in the world shouldn't be offended by it. Everyone has different backgrounds and experiences that cause them to find different things offensive. Some people wonder why the word *** is offensive. Maybe they wouldn't wonder that if they grew up being called a *** by neighborhood kids everyday. Certain words become sensitive to certain people.

What if the person who called the GM on you was a woman who was the victim of domestic violence or date rape. Can you blame her for being a little bit sensitive to a name that implies violence against women? Can you blame her for not wanting to be reminded of that violence everytime she logs on?

In fact, I know at least one woman playing this game that was the victim of date rape. Would you call her a "ho" and tell her to get over it? "It was just a joke. It was on Saturday Night Live. Jeez, get over it. You must be a ho if you were offended by it." I'm sure she would appreciate such advice.

In truth, I don't think you meant to offend anyone by making your first name. But as soon as you found out someone was offended, instead trying to understand how someone might be offended, you threaten to make this person's life even worse with this gargabe:
Quote:
I WANT TO KNOW THE MORON WHO SAID MY NAME WAS INAPPROPRIATE AND CALLED A GM ON ME AND MADE ME CHANGE MY NAME. I WANT TO KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE!! CAUSE IF I FIND OUT. I WILL RUIN YOUR GAMING EXPERIENCE FOR THE REST OF TIME. YOU THINK TRAINING A COUPLE GOBS NEAR CAMP IS BAD? ILL FIND EVERY GOB THERE EVER WAS AND TRAIN THEM ON YOUR PARTY. so who every called on me i hope you die a slow painful death

I could care less what people call their characters. And I agree that some people can be too easily offended. All I'm saying is you should not automatically respond with hate when you offend someone and don't initially understand why. Maybe they have a good reason for being offended that you don't know about.

- Mattelot -

Just because a word appears in a dictionary doesn't mean it's not offensive. Some words are labelled "derogatory" which should tell you that people will find their use offensive. Even words that are not normally derogatory can offend people. Would you name a character ChildMolestor and not expect anyone to be offended?

And no, I don't think people who are offended enough by a name to trouble a GM think they "rox0rz" because they got someone's name changed. There are far more people who think they "rox0rz" because the GM made them change their name. Just look at Slapaho. He created an entire thread to brag about how "the man" made him change his name and compares it to being a mafia informant in the witness protection program.

you know what man? i dont care. i was just saying to all my friends out there that my name has been changed and wanted everyone to know that knew me already. but ALL i want to know...is HOW you got

"What if the person who called the GM on you was a woman who was the victim of domestic violence or date rape. Can you blame her for being a little bit sensitive to a name that implies violence against women?"

WHAT does that have to do with being a ho? no women that has EVER been raped considers them self a ho. that is not their fault what so ever. Ho is a women that sleeps around with 15 hundred different men. ho implies violence against women? well once again man. only the women that are ho's do take offense to it. they are the one with a guilty conscience and cry up a storm when someone says ho. they have a guilty conscience because they know they sleep around and feel bad about it. now those are the people that take offense to the name. but someone of a rape victim?? i know you were trying to make a point but i think you were just rambling on and on just to protect either your 'friend' who hates the word ho because she is rape victim. well a rape victim didnt deliberatly sleep around. and if you want to say im wrong that the only people who do take offense to it are ho's well whatever. but i know plenty of women that crack up over the name and they are women and they never took offense to it. BUT otherwise WHO cares anymore???? i dont even care. yes i was ****** at the moron who called a GM on me but its over its done. i should be grateful that i didnt have to start all over or get suspended. but i guess to all the people i did offend

I'm sorry

So any woman who has 15 or more sexual partners deserves to be slapped?

Look, I know you're not going to get it. You're a boy, you can't possibly understand the feelings that "slap a ho" is going to cause in some women. Empathy is clearly more than we can expect from you.

No, "ho" by itself doesn't imply violence against women. But slapping one does.

The kind of person who would slap a woman around would probably also call her a "ho" while doing it (regardless of whether she sleeps around or not). That's why a phrase like "slap a ho" can be viewed as violent against ALL women. Also, I think most people think that slapping a woman around is not a good thing regardless of how many guys they've slept with.

I'm not saying that your name is universally offensive to everyone. I'm sure there are plenty of people who found it very amusing and creative. I wasn't personally offended when I first saw your name, but I could pretty easily see how someone else under particular circumstances could be offended.

Anyway, I don't really care what you name yourself. What I found disturbing was your violent reaction when you found out that someone was offended by your name.

The way I read it, I figured she meant that "Slap - A - Ho" was offensive to a woman that has been the subject of sexually related violence. Not just the 'Ho' part.

I think 'Ho' is an offensive term itself to most women, mainly because there is no real male equivalent used in every or even slang speech. We have *****, prostitute, ****, ho, etc. for women that sleep around. But what do you call a man that sleeps around? A man. Ever try using 'Jigalow' in everyday conversation? Doesn't happen. He's just... a man. Uses of those kinds of words are derogatory toward all women in general, and it's just not a nice thing to hear.

Slapaho wrote:

Not true. I'm a woman. I don't sleep around with a lot of men. I don't have friends that sleep around with a lot of men. Yet your previous name still offended me.

In fact, I did happen to see you around before your name was changed. I didn't scream and cry over it. It's not traumatizing, or horrible. I just wrinkled my nose and thought to myself, 'Well now, that's crass.'

Slapaho wrote:

I'm sure that there are women out there that think it's hilarious. I'm sure there are also men out there that think it's crass.

But I guess my biggest problem with your attitude on this thread can be summed up in a series of quotes from your last reply.

You don't care. You can't be sorry if you don't care, and don't care if anyone else cares.

You're not sorry. And well, I don't think you should be FORCED to be sorry about it. You are entitled to you own opinions of what is funny or not. But don't say you're sorry when you're not and you really don't care if people were offended or not.

I understand that this thread was intended to give a shout out to your friends so they know what happened to your old name. That it was intended to poke fun at the GMs for being so strict about name changes. But you have to expect to draw a little flack from the name too, especially flaunting it the way you are.

Our world is filled with violence, innocent people getting murdered, robbed, etc. We have high gas prices along with a deficiency in available jobs. With those things going on, I do not think that any seriously cares about what someone else says in a VIDEO GAME. Are these people directly trying to offend someone? lol ... no I stand by the belief that even derogatory names do not offend others, as I said.. ITS JUST WORDS!!.. are they keeping you up at night?.. are they SERIOUSLY bothering you THAT much?.. I HIGHLY doubt it. Any judge in a court would say to you "IGNORE IT!!" Again, as I said, its just stupid people thinking they're cool. Now.. if it were someone naming their character "SonnetteSucks", etc to directly provoke you, then I can see them needing a change, but to take an indirect name and play it off like it offends you... get a life.
