As it should be. RW Politics have no business on this forum or within the game either.

And while I also find it hard to believe that anyone would be offended by the phrase 'hot prospect', it does not surprise me that someone SAID it offended them..

thats the problem today.. no one is actually offended - they just like pointing out how one might be offended. Its like they think they get points for identifying what is potentially offensive

Constant bickering over the name, which has been changed, is a bit pointless.

(And No I didn't care since it wasn't going to be my server)
No we might be able to get it changed again! LOL

North America - East Coast
North America - West Coast
Europe - English
Europe - French
Europe - German

It is simple and keeps people from having an "I don't like that name" tantrum.
Conspiracy Theory: deliberately using a stupid name resulted in deflecting attention from other, more important but less easy to appease topics.

Newspapers do these things on behalf of the government. Important topics get pushed back deeper and deeper so people will forget about them after the initial outcry.

I blame the average attention span of the general populace. Very easily manipulated this way.

That's exactly the reason. They've never caved on anything this quickly before. If they actually cared about possibly derogatory things upsetting players, this forum would have about a dozen total threads.

Well now I know what server to avoid if they are offended by something that small. Thanks for changing it so they don't come to mine.
