Iím gonna go out on a limb and guess just two mods, oneís already outed herself and the other will probably be here shortly with a page long reply. Ive seen tj use that word a few times in another forum where heís active.

It's one of those insults that is divorced from reality but tells you a lot about the person saying it.
In that spirit, we would also have to ban any derogatory reference to genitalia in regards to other posters, would we not?

No more "stop being a pu**y" or "grow a pair" type talk without the banhammer?

This is correct, dictionary definitions change all the time based on usage and this is a good example.

FWIW cuckhold was definitely an insult in the Canterbury Tales, though as I recall the insult was clearly directed at the male(cuck) and not really a veiled insult of the slutty wife.

I think cuck porn led to its rise in the alt-right usage, of course in this scenario most people identify with the Bull brought in to satisfy the wife/GF. However the role of the cuck is its own sexual proclivity and since it is harmless(or certainly no more harmful than a man who enjoys being humiliated by a dominatrix or a man who likes to get pegged by his wife) and an issue of willing consent from free adults people should do as they like.

More broadly I think the mods are taking the wrong tack on this. What percentage of complaints to mods are generated by Footsteps and/or/with Shane? Combined its got to be like 90%+ of they deal with. You will never get anywhere opening the pandora's box of word police. Better option would just be to ban the both of them each time they start complaining. Mods don't owe Shane or Foots any sort of due process on a private message board especially considering the repeated whining.

When my kids fight over a toy they get 5 minutes to come up with a plan on how they will share the toy or that toy gets put away.

Sounds about right. And they wonder why they lose elections.....
Oh that's right, the Republicans have never lost an election. Thanks for reminding us. You seem like quite the triggered snowflake right now. And talk about slamming on people, the moderators agreed on this as a majority, and you want to automatically throw this in the face of liberals, like it's their fault. That sir, is what's mostly wrong with this country right now, is blaming one side or the other for things such as this. How is what the moderators did hear any different than a cake business refusing to serve gay people, and a court upholding that decision, which I don't have a problem with what the courts did, they basically said if there were no other places for them to buy a cake, then it would be considered wrong. And I believe you favored the business in that decision also. There are a million other places on the web you can go and use that word if you want. So stop being hypocrite and go find your space.

I support it, but I also acknowledge that it's the NFL's business. Samething here. I said what I thought about it, and the moderation team is free to manage the site they way the wish. If it creates enough heartburn for me then I am free to post elsewhere. the players protest doesn't convey the message they want is their problem.

I have never complained to a mod about a poster or even suggested they should be banned...EVER. If you donít believe it, PM any mod or TJ himself. In fact I specifically told him I could care less about wasting time worrying about who is allowed to stay or not.

I have no doubt some of these wimps in here have tried to get me banned numerous times however.

An amusing bit of historical trivia:

In the earliest days of the WRP forum, it was just Spider, Ro, a couple of other liberals whose handles I can't recall and myself against the Bush hordes.

Almost daily the entitled right-wing snowflakes on this board mounted one crusade or another to have me banned.

I received regular PMs from TJ saying "I receive more complaints about you than anyone else on this forum," and the like.

Fast-forward 16 years: Now liberals (and "never-Trumpers" of whatever political persuasion) would appear to outnumber Trumpublicans, but there's a new generation of bed wetters like Tiki Torch Boy who are determined to take up the slack, it seems.

Lol...pretty silly huh? I canít magine being bored enough to spend time worrying about whether some internet troll is allowed to frequent this nut house or not, much less concern myself with what words are allowed in here or not.

Man, it seems like the context not the word itself is important in determining family smack. If someone were to just call me a "cuck," I would assume that it was the same as calling me a pansy. If someone were to call me a cuck and then infers my wife in anyway, then it clearly violates the purpose of the rule.

I think banning the word is a slippery slope and you then have legitimate complaints and comparisons about words like "bastard" which clearly by definition has a familial meaning.

I know one of the three posters with the same avi did use "cuck" and followed it up with reference to raising kids at some point. This would be clear family smack without ever having to isolate that particular word.

All this being said, when people use that word as an insult, it always feels like they're trying to hard to be cool and insulting. It also signals they're not really open to honest dialogue.

let me reassure your questions with some truth.

i dont talk to the mods one bit. i did when i joined, but then i figured out, that it was pretty much useless.

But i know that people report me for simply having the avatar i have now. Mods have said this to me.

Which is why long dong and yoda adopted it.



So to you,

no i dont whine to the mods, or even bother reporting anyone. But i sure as **** will make a mockery of this retarded, liberal, virtue signaling ban of the word cuck while other posters go around calling people nazis.
