What a mature and inoffensive Guild name, what stunning examples of humanity you and your friend must be. What a clever double entendre! Grow up!

I quite agree. Honestly, of all the millions of characters that could be used to illustrate this post, you choose one with a guild name like that? I'm not one for insulting strangers, but at best you're an idiot. And as for your friend's 'funny' guild name, well that's not even close to qualifying for idiot-level.

Huh? That's the great Turpster that you whine about!And the wording of the guild name probably refer to the Naga. The race in WoW. Remember it?

@regis: Please, don't be naive. Naga has only one 'g', and there's no well-known phrase 'Naga Please'. It's a cheap reference to a word that's synonymous with racism, and there's no call for it.

John you must be hopelessly offended to the point of suicide by nearly every player in the game. There is hardly a guild, character name, or any number of people in the capital cities that yell something completely offensive. How can you not know who turpster is though? Seriously. He's mentioned here a lot and is on almost all the podcasts. It's just a joke. Chill winston.

@ben - yes there is a common phrase "nagga please" made popular by South Park. Which I'm pretty sure someone of your moral fiber would not watch :pYes, it is a cheap veiled reference to racism, however it is still a pretty common phrase - don't be naive.

Well, there's the thing, right? In South Park, yes it's a thinly-veiled reference to racism - that's what South Park does; social commentary by fouled mouthed little kids that can be very funny. If you take this out of the context of South Park, and for anyone not 'in the know' it just looks like cheap racism, i.e. not a reference to racism, but actual racism. Even if that's not the intention. Some words you can't really afford to bandy around in a casual manner, and the N word is one of them.I guess one other point is that it would be easy to illustrate Imba without even bringing this whole topic up. So why shouldn't the author not just take a bit more care?

Is a comment which references a particular race, was created by, and most commonly used by that same race, actually racism? I suppose one can be racist against their own race, which still doesn't make it right. Judging all of any race by what the mainstream of society's eye sees in movies, TV or any other forms of entertainment is certainly naiveté. But face the facts: It is funny. People who think otherwise are either idealists who probably don't even know anyone of that race or sitting at their panther party every week to show their "true colors." I have friends and associates who are of the race referenced by this pun and if I were to say that phrase, they would assuredly laugh at me because I’m "white." There, I said it. I am a color, and the only way it defines me is by my visual description.

How about you guys just find something better to do with your time then find things that you can be offended by?
