This "Old Fart" isn't in charge of a thing but wonders why some have to resort to name calling. Free Speech! Give me a break. You have every right to say what you please and TFL, a private entity, has every right to ask that we all comport ourselves with some respect for others. Many, many have indicated their special dislike for the term "shotty", which only encourages some to bask in its useage.

Has anyone read TFL's 4th Rule of Participation:

Quote:
4. Mangling of the English language whether through "text speak," ignorance, age, sloth or intent diminishes and embarrasses each of us, and is disrespectful to the reading membership. Posts which are indecipherable due to inability to translate thoughts into coherent written statements will be deleted without explanation. Recidivists will be removed.

I think this is probably outside the realm of the subject of this thread.

Just to be a little unique, I have tried to develop a style of writing a little like I really speak...

But the thread was about using a term some find immature to describe a gun that shoots shot...

As the mod of this section, I would go nuts trying to edit it out every time someone uses it...

I don't care for it and it has caused me not to reply to a thread at all or as soon...

But having gone this many posts, I think I have let it be discussed long enuff until next time it comes up...
