Default I need to clarify something

It has recently come to my attention that some member were offended by my use of the term "STFU". Ok, my version of that term does not mean what people think it mean. Aren't any of you fans of Battlestar Galactica? Ever hear the term frak, as in fictional swear word. Some members have used the term "WTF" before...no one was offended by that. Those posts weren't deleted either. Mine was. Why, why, why ???

It's easy. WTF is not directed at a member, it's simply questioning something. STFU on the otherhand is directed at a member.

Think about it though, who sees STFU and thinks "Shut the frak up"?

If you can't take a joke, that ain't my problem.

You need to understand that when written, jokes do not always look like jokes. Vocally tone of voice separates jokes from seriousness. When typed, it's all a matter of perspective.

LMAO, due to your pretty yellow cookie, I'd say it is.

That is the stupidest reasoning I've ever seen.

Well, Celegorm's reasoning is true. That is the only way to explain the difference between WTF and STFU. I don't think telling a mod his reasoning is stupid is going to get you anywhere. You should just drop this. It happened. Get over it.
