I like the Rule of Acquisition in your sig, by the way...and I admire the historical figure your name (may) refer to. I'm saddened that you seem unable to live up to those examples yourself in this case.

So it goes.
My goodness, random developer defender missing the point of a fantastic meme is saddened by my forum frivolity. Whatever shall I do? Oh, yeah, I'll continue to laugh at all the Dervish facepalms and those who seem wholly unaware of the fun they are missing. Kudos!

What makes you think I think that?

Let's go drink some more kool-aid together while watching you-tube dervish videos in an attempt to join Cryptic on their trip of insanity!

Well, you might start by finding the place where I defended the developers.

But hey, far be it from me to interfere with your bliss. Knock yourself out.

Excellent. Great minds.

I'm not worried about the devs. I'm sure they can handle themselves.

I'm just thinking about how lousy I'd feel if, say, "Corsair" had been chosen and resulted in a bunch of trolls flaming the idea, implying I were racist, etc., etc.

I'm all for lightening up...but not at the expense of someone who was innocently having their own fun. Maybe that doesn't bother you as much as it bothers me. And I guess that's where we disagree.

But hey, at least we can get together on "Corsair".

You'd have a free game and title by your name, so why would you care? I know I wouldn't. Besides, most ppl would've loved Corsair. It's not a racist term like Dervish.

Point is no one would really flame the idea of Corsair being chosen. Dervish on the other hand, well that was just asking for trouble, and given that a lot of us have already paid for the game or are very much looking forward to it, it's a tough pill to swallow.

Apparently, Hitler has gotten word of this, and he is not pleased... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZoqzN8ZJ24g

Yes. I can see that. But let's turn it around: Why do you care that they chose Dervish? You didn't get a free game and title by your name, and casting derision at those who did isn't going to get you those.

Maybe I'm not the person (or at least, not the only person) who needs to relax in this discussion.
