    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    No Retards allowed

    This will probably get Trollshido'd soon but just thought some of our residents might like to see what MAP has been up to in the last few months:

    Important Note On Terminology - Please Read
    Please take note of the following.

    In the last few pages of this particular thread, there have been several instances of the term "retard" being used. As part of my role as Topic Moderator, I brought this up for discussion amongst the various Topic and Global Moderators of the MAP community. The debate has explored various aspects of this word's usage, especially in relation to the way it is used in modern online communities. However, it has now been decided that it is unacceptable to use the term in any but the correct English language usage - in other words, it must not be used in a derogatory manner, whether this is done directly or indirectly.

    The particular instances in which it has been used recently do not appear to have breached MAP's Terms of Service. However, they are considered to be unsuitable uses of the term from MAP's perspective. Therefore, could you all please avoid using the term in any derogatory manner in future posts.
    If in any doubt, simply choose a different word to include in your sentence.

    Thanks in advance for your co-operation and understanding and your help in maintaining community standards here at MAP.

    Surely, "fucktard" is still okay? I've never heard any criticism of that!

    One would assume so. though, as he says "If in any doubt, simply choose a different word to include in your sentence."

    Pehaps you should use another apropriate word.

    not quite the same as retard, but retarded is close enough:

    addled, backward, besotted, boring, brainless, daffy, daft, dense, dim, dim-witted, doltish, dumb, feeble-minded, half-baked, half-witted, ignorant, imbecilic, indolent, insensate, low, moronic, not bright, numskulled, obtuse, scatterbrained, shallow, simple, simple-minded, slow, sluggish, stolid, stupid, tedious, thick, unintellectual, vacuous, wearisome, witless

    Isn't the base for retard from Italian? If so can I use it in the proper italian sense in a derogatory manner?

    I dont see the problem. MAP's are such touchy pussies sometimes.

    Maybe that's where the word came from, but retard is short for a full a full length word used in a medical professional for a person who is born with a disability.
