I Am Not A Tool!

Postby fleazilla » Mon Aug 17, 2009 2:32 pm

I am interested in the additional content yo uguys are offering and I'm fine with paying a fee but I refuse to called a tool. If I call somebody a tool its not to flatter them and we all know that Lord Stanley is not somebody most of us would want to model, so I guess I'm saying: I get the joke but I just can't do it.

Maybe you can test the skill of you website coders and come up with an alternate name--maybe you would even generate a mac/windows style controversy in your forums :p

the only people who look at the site know the context in which you are called a tool.

i don't see it as a problem personally as i'm sure most of the reaction and everything else erfworlders want to call me a tool quite frequently.

but it's a word, if you lived in australia tool is barely even noticeable as an insult. well at least in the northern states.

Why would they come up with a different name, when the current one is so perfectly reflective of the comic? It's an inside joke. You don't have to call people by their name and call them tools, it's just a title.

I'm a Tool, fool. What can I say, I embrace juxtaposing a positive meaning with a generally negative word, just think of it as brightening up the English language for future generations.

I think it's hysterical. Why should I be offended when no one here is using the word ‘tool’ in an offensive manner? Don't let yourself be ruled by mere words.
Grammar: It's not the law, it's just a good idea.

I haven't seen in the forum rules something against registering multiple accounts, so you could create a tool account to access exclusive content and a non-tool account to post stuff in the forum.
