I'm not sure "humorous" is the right word. But it did get the point across that the Nazis were beatable enemies that needed to be beaten.
HAIL HYDRA!

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

Nope, that's a young-looking slender homosexual man with no facial hair.

I realize that some not-so-smart people will continue using it out of spite, even after reading this. I'm not going to try convincing anyone personally but at least those people will have to go to sleep every night knowing this.
The only "not-so-smart" people are the ones that think an imaginary character from an 20+ year old tv show is a horrible term.

Grow up!

I just don't like the term, not only because of its association with the character Klink. It's an "endearing" racial slur for the Klingon people, I guess, but it annoys the targh out of me everytime I hear it. I don't really say anything or make a big deal out of it because it seems I'm the only one bugged by it. It just sounds stupid to me. But like I said, I don't throw a fit over it, I just don't use it myself and hope it catches on (it so obviously won't; the term is here to stay forever).

They always seemed to be wearing some sort of tactical rubber, to me. It resembled a metallic rubber, so they squeeked more than they klinked.

Before reading this thread... I thought the term "klinks" was just stupid. Now, I am convinced that thar be far more stupider things out thar.

Henceforth, I shall refer to the faction previously known as "KDF" as "klinks."


...now I'm off to do some marauding with my klink. Auf wiedersehen!
