I prefer the term "Zomguard"

Its a joke, take it with a grain of salt and relax a little bit. The news posts here are informal as most gaming communities are and as such, they tend to place humorous jabs within their articles and writings. Whether you find these things funny or not is up to you, but it does not give you the right to dictate how the man does his job or writings. If you want a formal writing on what is occurring in the Philippines, I suggest going to a news site, reading an international paper or you could learn Spanish and read the law yourself.Boudica said:That's disgusting and shameful.

It's not acceptable. Don't use slurs to describe people you feel morally superior to. If you dislike how some people choose to behave while not harming anyone, or how some enjoy their sex life, go ahead and ignore it. Don't spit out that kind of bile.
Nerd, geek, loser -- words you may be called for playing video games. Used by bullies and assholes to make themselves feel better.
Whore, slut, skank -- words you may be called for enjoying sex or being flirtatious. Used by morally condescending people and the occasional sexually frustrated loner.
If your personal issues give you the urge to use any of the latter, you lose the right to dislike, complain or condemn the use of the former. Words designed to shame and hurt have zero place here. Your stories would do well to keep your chosen morality and gutter slang out of them.
OT: The entire country is a mess. That said, its going to be interesting to see how they plan to enforce this seeing as how they already have trouble enforcing some of their most basic laws.
