My god this, who cares what people refers their character as. No matter the exact word they use it basically means the same thing, it's no different than someone referring to a soda as pop. All it shows is their background, be it real life or gaming. In the end it isn't something to take offense over, though there are some terms that should die out irl, the old slang for brazil nuts for example. If you're a country boy with old relatives, I'm sure you get the reference.
Guns dont kill people. Rangers and Hunters with guns kill people.

Wikipedia references it:

Only relavent part:
# Avatar (computing), referring to the cartoon image of a player's digital avatar in MMORPGs

Characters in XIV do not look like cartoon images.

so what gives you or anyone else to say what should be proper word usage?

Oh, just you know, the definition of the word.

(and what's this ghostbusters thing about? If this was in some reference to my name, you're off the mark: this name was from Ghost in the Shell.)

Was a reference to the world ending.. because when the world is ending, who ya gonna call?

Still a cartoon, just because FF14 takes a more "realistic" approach doesn't make it any less of a cartoon than Ghost in the Shell which also takes a very realistic approach in its art design, or anime in general. If you go on IMDB and look up Final Fantasy Spirits Within Movie, you will also see its labeled under Animation, the same category is Princess and the Frog and Find Nemo. Its a cartoon, face it! Final Fantasy is not real! I know you wish you could cast spells in real life...but its not happening. Its a toon.

The only problem I might have with Toon is if im a role player, in that case my characters are all real with real emotions!

BTW. Here is the lyrics to GHOST BUSTER theme song:

Notice, no where is there a reference to the end of the world and who you are going to call lol. Let me know when there is something strange in your neighborhood.

^ the end of the world is from the actual plot of the first Ghostbusters movie... not so much their theme song.

Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game

Opinions are like A**holes; everyone has one.
In an MMORPG, you have a Massive amount of opinions.

If you're this nitpicky, I don't recommend MMO's for you.
PS: There are (many) other MMO's aside from FFXI / FFXIV...

I read it as one of the many threads bashing wow, wow players, aspects of games that have been associated with wow at some point in time, and things 12 year olds do because they sometimes play wow.

You have some things to learn if you didn't think it would be hard to change another person's habits.
