i didn't know *** is considered racist.. to me its just and abbreviation of the word.
Yah, it comes from the WWII stuff. After the Pearl Harbor bombing, a lot of the literature posted to build support for the war included some pretty racist commentary.
Most of them included the term "***" in some form. Here is an example: Murdering ***
It's not a huge deal to me, but if you happen to party with a JP player and call them ***, they are going to be offended.
Just trying to be helpful.
I used to care about my sig. Then I got mocked and butt-hurt. I shall commence with the self-pity now.
