    There seems to be a growing trend to corrupt Chardonnay's name to Tardonnay.

    This *is* a personal attack and it will please stop.

    And before you all take 20 foot leaps to erroneous conclusions, no, he hasn't come crying to me about it. Just occasionally, believe it or not, I make moderator decisions without prompting.

    [edit] a reminder of the list of examples in the sticky
    You are (or "name" is) a

    * scammer
    * hacker
    * cheater
    * moron
    * idiot
    * ******
    * *****
    * any word with stars in dodging the profanity filter
    * etc.

    putting it in someone's name doesn't make it acceptable.

    Goodcry is any different? You guys don't seem to take issue with that "corruption" of someones name. Just asking for clarification.

    Good question.

    While alleging someone cries a lot isn't quite on the same scale as calling them a ****** I take your point.

    In the interests of fairness I will therefore say that no, from henceforth, that won't be acceptable either.

    cool no more memcock
    or idicko
    or forskin

    just a small amount off the top of my head..

    basically what Im saying is, in sieges history every main PvP stratics poster has had their name manipulated one way or another if even remotely possible, and if not possible they have had some sort of insult, twinkies come to mind..

    However, I have never taken it personally, but I am aware it is against RoC and accept that it is now being enforced.

    I think the difference between that one and the others is I and I'm sure others use Kelmod as a term of endearment where the others are just personal attacks so you are at the other end of the name calling.

    Just my .02

    And curse you for forcing me to having to log in here to respond. These boards have been here how long and this is post number 2 for me

    *shakes fist*

    Hey, I started Kelmod! And it definitely wasn't a term of endearment! :gee:

    Maybe they arent calling someone a ******. Perhaps they mean that he is tardy. ie late, behind, not up to speed. :sword:

    Hmmm....would calling someone fat be a personal attack? And if so, would calling someone slim be a personal attack? In some countries fat is beautiful and slim is not desirable. Discuss amongst yourselves.:scholar:

    I'm just curious, I don't know Chardonney but what if someone where to down grade the name to say... grape juice? Like they didn't think the person was a nice wine, but more of an immature grape? Would that be considered bad? To call someone grape juice? <hehehe>

    Use a little common sense and follow the guidelines set forth and you will be fine. The name calling has gotten out of hand.

    LOL, Petra...when I saw your post title, William Shatner's voice saying: "Captain's log, supplemental, Star Date blah blah blah" came to mind. :D
