While I agree for the most part, we need to also keep in mind that many that post the word 'shottie' in their posts here on TFL are new to the sport and new to TFL and are usually very quickly educated on the dislike of the slang term by other, more seasoned members. Sometimes in an almost rude way. Then the 'piling on' usually starts by more members and continues long after the point has been clearly made by the first ten posts.
What a great welcome to TFL, eh?
I think we need to educate the less seasoned members/shotgunners but be careful not to offend them as we do it. Learning is much more enjoyable that way...and none of us came into this world knowing what we know today. Somebody taught us and most likely in a tactful way.
