Everyone believes in freedom of speech until they hear something that offends them. And there's the rub. >:[
I've put in 9546 hours of study to become a Walmart greeter. Soon, I will be at the ready when you walk in.
Cool! Which WalMart will you be at? And how much are their chess sets?
Nobody can become a Walmart greeter anymore. They're doing away with em. :)
i heard theyre being replaced w free soda machines
Just like GM's are being replaced by computers
Incidentally to further refine the broad definition that is "Asian", there is:
Western Asia, which is the Arabian peninsula and Persia
Central Asia, which are the "-stans" minus Afghanistan and Pakistan (basically the former soviet states)
North Asia, which is basically the Russian portion
South Asia, which is Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Bangladesh and a handful of others
East Asia, which is China, Mongolia, Japan and the Koreas
Southeast Asia, which is the Indochina peninsula, Indonesia and the Philippines
So if Asian is not precise enough, but the country is too specific..., just don't say Oriental, it really is outdated and generally considered offensive.
Mighty big of you, Bubba. Especially since I blocked you weeks ago. You started a thread WITHOUT EVER PROVIDING ANY PROOF that I am a racist, stalked me all over the forums, wrote lies that I sent you salacious emails, had your friends attack me, had one write a fake post putting in ethnic slurs and attributing them to me...
And, when you started your new troll thread...you couldn't resist but to slam me once more.
*In all this, the mods never once stepped in to stop you.
You are just a scumbag, son. There, now I am finished with what YOU started. It has ended.
*They did early on tell you this, but you ignored them and became a self-appointed vigilante:

Don`t feel too bad. I was called a racist because I thought that "Oriental" was more specific than "Aisian" . That term is too vague. By the way, the closest I got to dating an Oriental girl was a Filipina--close enough, I guess. That insult was levied at me on Chess.com. Even though I believe in free speech, you still cannot yell "fire" in a crowded theater if there is none.
Tubebender, as I asked...it is inappropriate to refer to a human being as "oriental". It is offensive.
It doesn't necessarily make one racist, though, perhaps just ignorant of that fact.
True. That is why I have been patient and not called Tubebender a racist. He just seems poorly educated.
great way to start a page...
Oh my yes anyone can become a Grandmaster, as we all know, if you keep playing and studying you will continue to improve forever without ever hitting some sort of peak, you'll just keep improving to infinity until you are one of the best in the world.
Dodger and I agree here. I am betting I become the world champion before dodger, though. He can have it after me.
This thread has turned out absolutely ridiculous.
