I opened this post at least 4 different times until I even realized what the problem is with the commands. :)

I think every person in the world understands it's short for newbie-ignore and absolutely nothing else?
Every person born before 1997, possibly. Makes me want to go live in the mountains.
Then why did you bring it up if you don't even


fuck, forget it jesus christ the millennials are everywhere

This is what I get from taking advice from discord lol

Some people don't publicly voice their opinions and I'd rather have brief awkwardness than continue to genuinely offend people who are sensitive to those kind of things. Although it seems many are indifferent to it, you never know because the amount of newbie helpers/people that can use the command is significantly lower than the genesis population.

Unless someone thinks <nignore> is problematic I'd just shut the topic down. 90% of Genesis is mature enough not to care.

This is a non-problem. Loads of things deserve our time and energy. The immaturity of someone who wants to turn <nignore> into a racial slur isn't one of them. Such people will find ways to be assholes whether we change this particular command or not.

This might come up again so, to be clear. In my opinion, this is not an issue not because "some people are too fragile" and "that's rediculous", but because the particular example needs some imagination to see the small semblance of slurring in.

Take a step back, and ask yourself:
Do i care if it is <nignore> or <nmute>?
Does one sound better than the other?

Instead of discussion how other people are allowed to feel.

Personally, i don't care which is selected, but <nmute> has a softer context for me than <nignore>
Thus <nmute> would actually be the one i selected.

We all are too quick to get stuck in "THEY" shouldn't influence how i feel, instead of thinking should i feel something for this?
I did too.

As a matter of fact, I like <nmute> too. I read it "enmute", kind of like "entell" for <ntell> :)

You're not wrong. The issue for me is, why do we care in the first place? I'm sure if we tried hard enough we could find any number of commands or syntaxes in the game that could possibly, theoretically, in some light be construed as "potentially offensive." Does that mean we need to go and fix them because someone, somewhere might someday think they are potentially offensive? I vote no. But you're free to <nignore> that.

I support your Rich People Club idea.
