I was on there last week and my code word was 'Join the Clan and Support the Supreme White Race'

KD- I think you might be on to something.

that is crazy!  I think it could definitely get your friend some free tickets if he called them up and complained!  

On a side note, Wikipedia is one of the coolest sites on the internet!  I love it!  It helps me with research papers and even accounting assignments.

Wow that's nutty!  I've had it where it's come up CLOSE to some sort of racial slur.  But never the actual word itself.

I agree with Gator - your friend might be able to score some free tickets if he called them up!

Maybe I'm under sensitive -- I thought that ticketmaster word was like 'spick and span' -- but the slur had no 'k'?

EDIT: ok so I went to a dictionary; I never had any idea that was an alternate spelling for the slur!  Learned something new today...

Somewhat related:   I was posting on Playstation Underground, in response to a kid who said "What do you think I am, retarded?"

I posted back that the word "retarded" was not a bad word, and why, and that he shouldn't use it as such... and neither should he use, in the same way, the words "gay" or "girl," or racial or ethnic slurs - blah, blah.

If you put in "WTF" at that site, it comes out bleeped:  "**bleep**"
Well, "retarded" wasn't bleeped, but "gay" was:
Quote
Also, please remember that "retarded" is not a bad word, simply a situation that some people are in (that you could have found yourself in, but for your genes and/ or upbringing) - so stop using it as if it were an insulting word... same with "**bleep**," same with "girl", and same with racial or religious slurs - etc.,  unless you want to be immediately identified as one of the youngest, least mature members of the Forum.


Here's the thread if anyone is further interested, lol:
