    OOOOooook, feels like the repetition is endless now

    to summarize:
    a popular website has a name which includes a well known offensive and derogative slur typically used against women. its petitioned to change its name. so far the most normal and natural thing in the world

    after comes an uproar of intellectuals pointing out its just a "play with words" for gear-addicted musicians, in their enlightenment they have figured this must be "explained" to the world... lol

    and then we have a flood of oppressed bigots going nuts throwing shit all around like its their last day alive.

    maybe time to close this now since the very specific question is already solved? and its leading nowhere since all has been said, imho. what do yo say guys, and what do you @Olymoon @No Avenger think

    @EddieXx I think this discussion isn't so much for the likes of yourself or recycle, is all.
    This sentence, the only one when you seem to not be talking about yourself, is false.
    Those people have pointed out the original meaning of the word, prior to whatever you chose to decide it could mean in the present day.

    since the meaning of a word can vary over time, context, and region, what does that word mean to you?

    @EddieXx your subjective and hasty summarization shows that you are not the right person to give mods an advice on closing threads. Let people talk or you are against that.

    To me, nothing. My mind doesn't go to such places involving judging others at all. It's a waste of energy, and totally hypothetical most of the time.
    I am aware of various things it can mean outside of its original dictionary definition in the present day though, if that's what you're trying to get at.
    I'm unwatching the thread now, cheers.

    FWIW, Gearslutz is now a ghost town only inhabited by Behringer sock puppets and people Moan Zoning about Reverb.com

    We call also men slutz over here if they are unorganized and dont clean up their space and gearslutz has nothin to do with women its about men and women who horde hardware , its a funny joke .
    No woman i ever knew and know would have been insulted by such a name of hardware site .
    People who bring such stuff up are very unilaterally educated in life .
    Its easy to not know much bout all topics blending with this but to spring on bandwagon and to think im on the good site , which is actually another train (like dozens of others ) to make society krupelt .
    My neighbors mom is over 70 , she wasn't allowed to vote many many years ago but she is not with this modern feminist movement (but back then of course)i can tell you , cause it got overextended in the meantime and men have less rights then woman when it comes to child questions and so on and on .
    The very well posts before and the 'answer' on that is just showing the unableness to reflect of this people.

    For sure... it's as normal and natural as fucking syphilis.
    Yeah, let other people revolt for rights that include you too and then instead of thanking them for the tiny bit they tried to contribute, come back mocking them. How sophisticated.
    The only bigot i see here is you mate and a lazy one as well. The only thing you can accuse me of being fanatic of is my freedom. But hey, you can't even bother to spell correctly. So why the fuck are you laying your cowardice trumpic mob optics upon us... Fyi, we don't give a fuck that you don't give a fuck. Get it ?
    Bye.

    I agree. And they will still be too busy arguing about false things and creating social division, to realise when we turn our backs on them.
    It's a shame, because other than the fact they have failed to YET see the reverse-psychological aspect of this game that's being played on us, people like recycle and EddieXx are decent fellows.
    Btw, the dictionary definition of 'fellow' means any member of a group, be they male or female.
    But perhaps due to some peoples' perception of its usage in a certain context, YMMV regards what you want to believe 'fellow' means.

    You've never heard this saying before? It's been around for quite some time, actually. It was meant by me to be a humorous take on the whole "Gearslutz" name change (which apparently went over like a lead balloon).

    OH! Haha! Sorry @Iggy brother! x
    No, I've never ever heard that expression!
    In context of my quote below, please believe I may as well have grown up on what would seem a different planet with different ways and understanding.
    My type of being is rare on the internet. I only joined FB in 2010 and left over 4 years ago.
    This is my only experience of such a community, and of the Wild WIld Web.

    Edit: Ooooh! And NOW I get the joke in relation to GS!!! Brilliant! haha. :hahaha: Good one!
    So for people like me, speech marks/quotation marks would have denoted it was an expression.
    One that I still don't actually understand yet. haha.

    a few months ago there was a dutch soccer coach in the us after they won the game and party in the dressing room with rap music
    the coach was rapping until the n word appeared in the rap and he was fired because of that
    this is just fucking ridiculous
