@ancalimon Man, you are a moron. It is in fact a scientific word used to describe a person with a serious mental disability. That's NOT offensive at all. It IS offensive when you use it in the context of slang, such as how Zach used it. I personally don't care that Zach used the word, but I you are a moron who doesn't know what you're talking about.

@DanI agree with you, though the term has come into such widespread use that you're just shouting yourself hoarse trying to dissuade people from using it.On another note, mini-nerdrage when thinking of Malygos25... my guild fails terribly at cardinal directions, and we've never reached phase two on any of the runs I've been present on, and to my knowledge, at all. Sigh.We do have 1D Sarth down, and they did a 2D run last night that I couldn't be part of. So, we're moving towards leetness.

@ThiosonHere's a good way for your guild to get past phase 1 of Malygos25. Have each person exercise personal responsibility while the vortex portion is occurring and eyeball where the power spark is in the sky. After everyone is dumped onto the ground, everyone run towards it, while the tank runs in the opposite direction. That way, no one eats a breath. If people are still failing at finding the spark, put a raid marker over the person with the best eye for finding the spark, so they can just follow their lead.

Umm... maybe you all have forgotten the other meaning of retard?re·tard 1 (rĭ-tärd') Pronunciation Key v. re·tard·ed, re·tard·ing, re·tards v. tr. To cause to move or proceed slowly; delay or impede. v. intr. 1. To be delayed. n. 1. A slowing down or hindering of progress; a delay. 2. (Music) A slackening of tempo. Just because you want to blame a person for being insensitive, doesn't mean you should just lash out at them without considering their true meaning.

@CryohThat's what we do, but 90% of the time, some essential person won't do it right, or a freak aggro pull will make everyone gathered on the spark AoE die at once.
