J/k, but seriously, if the BYOND staff took more action against their likes, we wouldn't have this problem

considering that all the staff are volunteers with jobs, families, and other activities outside BYOND, i think we do the best we can. we eventually get to everything. so your comment of 'if the staff took more action' is not only un-warranted, but unfair.

South Africa has an, er, 'interesting' track record when it comes to white people and black people. =P

I can imagine it wouldn't be too hard for those kind of connotations to appear, however accidental they may be. It'd always be on my mind if I met a south african person, at least...

My old school's librarian was from there and we never let her forget it. We'd mimic her accent and say "apartheid!".


Actually speaking on this subject, my mum always says she can't find it within herself to trust a south african person. She's just prejudiced against all of them because of what happened. I told her that was unfair and hypocritical of her- it's the Americans who can't be trusted.

Let's see, I can choose to be a Ghetto Thug or Trailer Trash (respective black and white). My training consisted of shooting cans to prove I'm american and practising hand-to-hand by trimming a crop of weed. For some reason I have a magic "recall scroll". I'm far too lazy to dive further into this games content to prove the claims made against it.

That's pretty funny. This game should definitely *not* be axed. Humouring and poking fun at stereotypes isn't a bad thing!

Meh, I know, my personal feelings though would be to ban anyone who insists on unreadable posts, idiocy, etc.
I dont know, when I said more action I really meant "stricter rules"
