The self-respect from that post is severely undercut by the insistence that what you're saying is innocuous. It's not up to you to decide how people react to it, and you're smart enough to recognize that something like that will get a reaction. It reminds me when people on Reddit will call somebody a enjoyable human being and then get uptight and claim that "they didn't mean it that way" when called out on it. Who gives a poo poo what you meant about it? I don't personally have an issue with it, but it makes you look like a moron, and you clearly have enough respect for yourself to get beyond representing yourself in a way that comes across as pedestrian and crude.

I'm reacting to what I think was a cynical and patronising read/response and it's pretty legit to be frustrated when people attribute meanness to you that you don't see. I apologise plenty for being mean, so when I'm being misunderstood I'm drat sure going to stick up for myself.

FYI, I wasn't a part of whatever happened, but this is the thing that is sticking out to me more than anything else. You can be mad that you are being misunderstood, but you should also be aware as to why you are being misunderstood, or why you think you are being misunderstood.

hello did you all know that the words idiot moron and imbecile were all scientific classifications for human beings who did not do well on IQ tests in the early 1900s

those are all medical terms that you can use today to call someone a stupid without insulting or denigrating a subset of the population because thanks to linguistics they've lost their association with actual peoples

the only reason you choose not to is because you cave into social pressures to 'fit in' by 'otherizing' the same group of people, whether you are conscious of it or not

let's all take a chill pill and recognize that theram is very, very wrong

though, given your grammar, maybe you need to go back to high school!

It went ok for the most part with a couple rough spots, but I have learned much since then and am a much happier person.

This game isnt nearly as role heavy as that one too so itll be less chaos overall (probably)

I expect this game will go well enough for there to at least be El Dorado 3!
