    Is It contagious?

    You just proved my point. They have power, yes, but only if we let them. F.ex. I was called retarded for years, but at some point, I ran out of firetrucks to give. Thus, the word holds no power over me. Anyone is capable of doing the same if they want it enough. Except I didn't tell them to ignore the words, funnily enough. If that's what it takes to take the power back, however, then so be it—adults do it all the time as they get on with their day. Those who don't grow up—even as they grow old—never learn this lesson. What I said is not a moral lecture, but a warning of the consequences of moral censorship. Except, again, what I said is not a moral argument. It is a reality check. Give the moral busybodies an inch, and they will take a mile—they have been doing this for years now and folks like you and others in the hurt feelings brigade are enabling them. Facts don't care about your feelings.

    Is It contagious?

    All this hand-wringing over a single word is nothing short of hilarious. Grow up. Words only have as much power as you let them—and that goes for everyone in this thread, regardless of your circumstances, or those of people you know. It isn't our fault, and trying to make us not use words you don't like is silly at the best of times. At worst, it really does open the way for the omnipotent moral busybodies. You won't like them when they have true power.

    Fireballs on The Ships in Port

    I'm okay with that. Burial at sea means the same thing, and it all goes back into the ecosystem.

    The funny part is, that's how I want to be disposed of after I die...

    Jingles has lost his edge?

    You mean "that bloody stabbing simulator" don't you?

    When you disturb a nest of DDs in a Freddie

    "Snakes...why does it always have to be...snakes..."
  8. Boob cancer doesn't need any more awareness raised about it. People already know all about it, to the point that any further raising is basically just virtue-signalling. And for the love of Kek, no pink camo!

    Future of the game?

    Gonna pull a Cathy Newman here: So you're saying that Wargaming is chasing the mythical "wider audience"?

    Black Friday - Don’t Like it? Don’t buy it.

    The phrase "don't like it, don't buy it" coming from the seller isn't just bad PR, it also isn't even an argument. Generally-speaking, no matter which publisher or company is using it, it's an admission that they just don't give a flying goat flock about their customers and any opinions they might offer. It isn't even a cop-out. It's throwing the toys out the pram.

    Future of the game?

    With the carrier rework beta test being limited to those who have the Wargaming Center (a.k.a. Steam Wannabe Lite) installed, does this mean that WG are close to making having this piece of absolute [edited]-cancer on our computers mandatory to even play the game? If that is the case, my days playing are numbered.
  12. Le sigh. Wargaming, it's a good thing for you that I'm taking a break from this game to play Far Creed 6: Greek Wildlands. Otherwise I might actually give a crap that you're turning this whole issue from mere burning garbage to a full-on dumpster fire. And for those of you who are wondering what camouflage the eventual WeeVee '44 will get...well, it's obvious. She'll be getting WeeVee's Pearl Harbor camo. Because reasons.

    New Midway Movie to Start Filming

    I think I see the problem here. All of us are a product of our upbringing and the culture and environment around us, as much as of our own personality, experiences, and personal agency. When the environment we live in is relatively stable, with little to worry about that is so vastly beyond our choice and control, we have the luxury of being able to look at things in the broader context without having to worry about whether what we see or say impacting our lives. But when everything around us is cast into chaos, where the line between good and evil isn't so much blurred as it doesn't even run straight, that puts a lot of strain on everyone, and leaves little room for imagination or informed speculation—particularly if one's existence is little better than hand-to-mouth. With that understood, I have a much better idea where you are coming from, and while I stand by what I have said about the war (Brazil did participate on the Allied side, after all), I also understand why you see it the way you do. It is extremely difficult, if not outright impossible, to separate the shades of gray when the world around you seems to have abandoned all reason and morality. I sincerely hope that things get better for you and your country.

    Actually, shingles is a result of chicken pox in adults. Don't ask me how it works, since I don't really know.
