    I love to pull chains, that is know FACT!

    Not all non-sub-scum are snobs or asses, some are actually very nice!

    They know who they are, I don't have to mention names. 😉

    Maiden Gertrude,

    He is in the hate forum...Hell I've seen more hate shown in the General forum than in the Debate forum, and it gets hot and heavy in there at times. I read most of them over from time to time, don't play in all of them.

    'Scum' for me is a particularly unpleasant word. It is something we usually reserve for that despicable human being who pushes an old woman down the stairs to steal a few coins, or else robs from the dead. - To apply such a term to a person who just hasn't happened to subscribe to a particular website is a bit peculiar to be honest. (And yes, offensive, even if said tongue in cheek).

    Personally, I subscribe to some sites and not to others, so falling in to both categories wouldn't link scum or snob to the arbitrary act of subscription.

    Its a false dichotomy, there are non subs who are gentlemen and some subs who are cads and bounders.

    I agree ......
    I don't call anyone in the forum scum. I do call them non-subs which is accurate.
    Scum is a little strong.
    I've had posts removed for calling someone an idiot, which is milder than scum.
    I do tell someone they are stupid, which is accurate. Not naming names here.

    I think it's a disgrace for me to be called a sub snob simply because I support the site and do not do freeloading like others do.
    The old excuse that non subs bring in advertising revenue if that's the case then why bother to charge anybody.
    The term non sub scum has been used on here for years. Never seem posts removed or reprimand s being issued.
    It's a phrase non sub scum not calling a player scum.
    Some have an issue with being called NSS but happily use the snob word which I find very offensive.
    Then cry and play the victim

    roma45,

    You are absolutely right about the term non-sub-scum being used for years, doesn't really mean the people are scum...Like when someone calls someone a pervert, etc., etc., doesn't mean they are serious about it. All used in banter as far as I am concerned.

    I remember years ago way back getting a forum ban for calling someone a knob head, it was considered racist. Had absolutely nothing to do with race!!!

    robbie,

    It really is possible for people with different persona's and views to agree on certain things.

    Go back to the way you were many years ago, I may even forgive you for what you did in the Clan Championship. 😉
