I just think this type of thing is happening a little too soon.

People, like myself, just need a little time to digest what has recently happened.
As someone who lives in New york City for 28 years....i do not agree with your views, and the word should stay and pretending something does not exist is not going to make it go away.

No problem. I will move along to something else.

Once these events are behind us, I may come back to try the expansion.

Sorry for asking.

I'm pretty sure this story has taken longer than a week to write, so what we shall do is ban all broadcasts relating to the unfortunate events just incase someone wants to even compare the two.

Back on topic, this news of the new story is really wetting my appetite.

You are right. I should not have asked the question.

Sorry for doing so. I am wrong.

Up until you are called 'a terrorist', I was all on board with this new expansion.

I do not think I want to play this game now.

Its a little too soon.

My current image of a terrorist is a murderer of innocence. I just keep thinking about the Boston Marathon massacre, for the event happened approximate ten to twenty miles away. Do not even get me to think about how the freak went to UMD.

Its just too soon.

I want to play this great expansion, but I do not want to be called a terrorist.
There are terrorist attacks all over the world for a lot of years now. Only because something happened in your state, you want to censor certain words? Because they make you feel uneasy? Toughen up a little.

I just deleted my post, so there should no longer be an issue.

All you had to do is read the post above your reply.

its your opinion that you might want that. hell i live in an area where i hear people, including cops, getting shot pretty much every day on the news, you dont see me asking for a ban on ground combat though.

and i mean local news, not national news.

You are correct. Asking the question was very-very wrong of me.

I should know my role.

Second, I never once asked for the word to be banned.

For the love of god, where did THIS bit come from? Just like a few posts back you wrote (and then deleted) some crap line about being given a hard time because you're a female. And now you drop the "should know my role" line?

Self pity much? Your gender has nothing, zero, zip, nada, to do with people's reaction to your sudden discomfort with the "T" word.

Are people out of line for jumping on your reaction to the "T" word? Perhaps. But does it have anything at all to do with your gender and/or that gender's "role"?

No.
