Never met anyone from assumption, but it's odd. I'd never heard of Clark when my mom mentioned it to me, but whenever I mention it, whoever I'm talking to went there, or had a sister or husband or something that did. Weird. And yeah, Clark is pretty fingers.

pwn - to own or beat soundly. It's from nerd/World of Warcraft speak (leet or 1337) and when I found out about it, I adopted it as my primary language.

Read the wikipedia article on "leet". It's priceless.

I know what pwn means. I'm pretty sure it's been around way before World of Warcraft. Who got pwned?

Is this what they call the "generation gap"?

Hiya.
Lots of people are still offended by the words ya mention - that's because most of time they are used it's in an offensive, derogatory or oppressive way and almost never in a particularly positive way. Even many/most folks who choose to use those words to describe themselves - generally take offense when other folks do the same. Hmmm, I wonder why...

If someone is 20 and wants to go around calling their 20 year old friends "bitch" or whatever else and they all get it then that's fine. But I'd guess something 98% of people above 40 would be offended by talking like that. And there are tons of people above 40 whom are good and very interesting people. I don't think they all deserve to be dismissed as "anal" and not deserving of any consideration. Sometimes such people post on this board and I don't think anyone is really losing much by being considerate of all those "anal" people.

I guess I am one of those anal people Mr. Mulletass has referred to. There are some who believe that words and sounds are powerful and can set a tone for positive or negative energy.

It is a free space here, yes. And no, I do not have to read these entries. Yet for the sake of the greater community I would suggest being more mindful of the use of words. One may always PM another if you wish to speak in such a manner.

Whatever. Carry on.

Yeah, but as long as we were on the topic I figured I'd mention it. not trying to provoke any one needlessly.

Above 40!? I'm still in my 30s! :wink:

I think it's actually less about age difference and more about all the communities that have formed on the internet. Like the vegan bodybuilding forum for example. There so many new "dialects" it's impossible to keep up on everything. If you break it down into age groups, the generation gap is probably only a few months, or even a few weeks.

And don't worry, mulletass, I wasn't offended by anything, just havin' fun. 8)

mullet, I've had the same prob several times on the forum. I initially just talked how I wanted, how I talk in real life, but Rob made a topic ages ago saying he'd like people to tone down their language a bit. I respect that because it is his forum, and I don't have to be here; I use what he has provided, and so just removing a bit of slang seems fair enough. So now I don't use the 'f' word and I don't use the 'c' word or the 'n' word, and I try to refrain from faux racism. But I do still use some slang and faux -isms from time to time and a handful of people ask me not to. I personally think it's a divide in culture or heritage or whatever, some people see some words as 'bad' regardless of why or how they are used, almost as though those words shouldn't even exist. I think I'm from the same school of thought as you mullet, in that I believe the intention or meaning of the word, determined by the user at the time, is the thing that matters. There will always be miscommunications. One thing I've been thinking about recently is, if everyone thought like me, there'd be no problem, and if everyone thought like the other type of people, there'd be no problem either. It's because there is a clash in points of view that there is the problem. In my day to day life, because my friends and family basically feel the same as me, we don't constantly say to each other "Wait, what do you mean by that? Why do you have to be so vulgar?" because we all know it isn't real, it's not even something to question, you just have faith in one another that you can't possibly mean it because it's so unreasonable. I would feel kind of like job-interview-time if I was to stop talking like that altogether, if I considered how I could possibly offend someone by any and everything I say, I'd be on edge and freaked out. I'd rather just say kind of whatever, or judge people as I get to know them and gradually open up around them, and if they do get upset by what I say, I will perhaps lay off around that kind of topic around them, or explain myself and hope they understand.

Anyway, yahr, it's up to you how you handle yourself. Robert is a very reasonable person. He just wants this site to be a place where people get along, and also where people of any age could potentially visit. That's a tall order, everyone can't get along all the time, but his intentions are good. My advice would be that if Rob does ask you to tone it down, don't take it to heart or whatever, he's just trying to do what's best for the big picture. But you should be okay! It's not like you're attacking anyone.
