Feb 28th 2008 12:18PM 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?
Feb 28th 2008 10:00AM @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.
Feb 28th 2008 9:51AM 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.
Feb 15th 2008 1:17PM @1, do you have some advice on how to write a better article, or are you simply posting quite possible (sic) the most useless comment ever written?
Dec 26th 2007 9:56AM To those commenting about how 'pointless' it is to cover levels 1-5, I've two things to say.
1) Yes, it is very easy to level 1-5. It takes next to no time, and you can do it without any idea what you're doing. You don't even have to think about it. To me, that's the point of the article - it invites you stop and think about what you're doing, and that encourages the good habit of always considering how to use your class abilities in effective ways.
2) In much of the Western world, we've just celebrated Christmas by giving each other gifts. Probably there are a lot of new players out there (some of whom might even have been reading WowInsider in anticipation of their hobby-to-be) who just received WoW and are about to dive in, so now is a pretty good time for an article like this.
