Yeah, I've never seen you come up with names like Nadull and GSMtardall...

Tard is not an offensive term. At least on MTF it's not. And since when were you a member of the Nadull family?

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

Uhm, excuse me I do not call him pig. I call him the pig and everyone knows what I am talking about.

What does that say about the appropriateness of the nickname? I'd venture a guess and say it's spot on .
