@James_Lahey said:Lol I believe you misattributed that quote to me sir. Regardless, I think the gentleman you did intend to quote (@jestinphish) was not disparaging you for being offended over word choice, but was rather chastising the author of the original recap for reacting so childishly to the backlash from the 12/29 recap.On a side note... "noobtarded".. come on man. Get some thicker skin. When I was a kid a popular saying was "sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me". What happened to that?
Cool so we can just drop some N words? How about start calling people gay in reviews? Where's the line?
I missed the part in my post where I said my feelings were hurt. But I strongly believe that there's no place for certain pejoratives on here, particularly those that pertain to aspects of identity. Anyone who thinks it's okay to sling around the word "retarded" is pretty thoughtless and childish.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
