Ok so I created this char and for the species I put person. This has created a big fuss that I didn't expect.<br><br>
I have a preference for the term person because it is more gender neutral then human.<br><br><br><br>
I both explained this to admin as to why I used this term and agreed that my species be changed to whatever they prefer. Ithought this was the end of the issue. It wasn't. I never tried to get them to agree with my viewpoints, I simply pointed out why I used the term.<br><br><br><br>
They have been nothing but argumentive towards me and then state they don't want to debate the issue. They are the one that keeps bringing up the "debate"...I long agreed to their terms so I don't know what the fuss is about and yet they keep ending their arguments with...this is not up for debate. IT seems like our admin is creating this situation for the sake of being argumentive.<br><br><br><br>
Last night, I simply left for the second time and disconnected without answering because if I reply then I'm adding to their debate and if I don't, then I'm being rude...I simply cannot win. Last time I just stopped looking at the screen and let my char idle out.<br><br><br><br>
Being in a lot of pain in the last couple of days from my usual belly pain doesn't help the matter because when I'm in pain I'm likley to snap very quickly towards people being ( fill in swear word of choice here) around me. Not that it doesn't usually really piss me off when people play lil mind games around me, which is what this seems to amount to.<br><br><br><br>
When my belly pain heals up,should I just ignore this and continue to sometimes go chat ( It seems they won't accept my char anymore because of their stupid hang up on the word I used for my char) or should I just connect once more, really give them a ear full and quit the game.<br><br><br><br>
Times like this I really wish I had my own MU*, sometimes I put up with such **** from admin players and then don't leave because I have fun with other players there. I was really looking forward to having some RP again and thought I created an interesting new char.

Simple= hu-man. I'm sure many here have noticed that I tend to go with people or person instead. I don't get hung up over it or insulted etc, I just consider it my personal preference.

Well... there's also man in woman. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I don't know. I see what you're saying, but I still think I'd prefer human to person. Person doesn't even seem species specific, you could probably call an elf a person. I think this is where the admin is coming from; person isn't a species, while human is.<br><br><br><br>
If they're debating it this much instead of just saying yay or nay to you using "person", you might want to find a different place to play.

Y es I have thought of that before and have debated using the alternative spelling that some people do. There's also male in female..Dam our English language.<br><br><br><br>
Person and human are the same thing, both are species home sapiens or whatever the spelling so no I wouldn't use the term for another species.<br><br>
Like I said I do not mind if other people prefer the other term.<br><br><br><br>
I wanted to try and play second life but I can't get the game to work.

Yeah I'm out of there for now. I like problem solving as much as the next person. Maybe I'll return later or I'll just let my char idle out.<br><br><br><br>
My basic philosophy is a hobby ends when it's no longer fun and a career ends when there's no money being made.
