To conclude:

- Title changed without permission.
- I have asked on numerous occasions for my title to be changed back. Requests denied.
- Made a mountain out of a molehill in regards to the rather aggressive 'racist accusation'. Chief thought nothing of it whatsoever and replied jokingly ''Hey! I'm no racist, some of my best friends are Chinese virgins.''

And I'm made to look like the bad guy. If I was more uptight I'd have every right to request an apology to the manner in which this was handled.

You gave an example and rather than simply say you misspoke when queried - everyone does - you chose to pretend it didn't imply what it implied. Any aggression was entirely in your head.

And, as mentioned above - if the phrase is offensive it wouldn't be allowed as that wouldn't be fair to you. But

I'm a xyz
I'm a xyz
I'm a xyz

You're a xyz - hey! that's offensive!

is one rule for you and another for the rest of the Board. And that doesn't seem fair either. We try to be consistent in the application of rules.

Putting aside whether the phrase 'single virgin' is offensive or not, I think Vad3r's entitled to be just a little bit annoyed at someone changing his title. Isn't he?

This.

After two days of protest it hasn't even changed back correctly. It was ''Newbie'' not ''n e w b i e''.

Made about 1000 posts where he calls himself a single virgin, then claims it's offensive when someone else does.

From what I've read, he's actually offended that his title was changed without his consent rather than what it was changed to

Nah, he said the statement itself was offensive. That's what the now edited racism post was about. He claimed it was equal to having Chief's title changed to "Doesn't Like Asians"

I won an argument against the mighty and feared elab. That was high on my list of things to do before I die. Just a shame the circumstance was this and not film related.

There's a thread in Empire Online for requests. It can sometimes lie a while as we're not always around but since I'm here - what would you like?
