    Is using the word "retarded" a banable offense?

    Wasn't sure where to post this, but is calling something or someone's idea retarded, is that against the rules? Thanks.

    The word itself won't get you banned. But if using it as an insult like any other word, you can get an infraction or ban.

    You could just figure out the real meaning behind the word and use it how it's intended.

    There's better ways to tell people they're dumb, stupid, retarded or any other word you want to use. Prove them wrong with facts, articles and stats. If you don't have those, explain yourself and why you feel they're wrong with your opinions rather than with insults.

    This is what I was looking for, thanks. I did not use it as an insult towards someone. I was told by my mod that I cannot say that word, and it's not tolerated. He said my comment was a "ban-worthy" when it clearly was not.

    To those saying I should use other words, I absolutely do, but sometimes words slip out. But I wouldn't call any poster that.

    One of my posts got deleted in which I used the word, and when I asked the mod why it got deleted, he said because I used that word. So I wanted clarification if what I said was ban-worthy. Ftr, I said "that's retarded."

    I think all post that have the word should be deleted. Depending on the context of the conversation, it can justify a ban.

    You're such an ignoramus

    It may be easier and more fun to do that but that doesn't equate to it being the right thing to do.

    I know I am.

    Asking people to be rational and logical on the internet might be the most impossible thing in the history of everything.

    Thats and it's fun to troll

    You should be banned if you spell it "retarted"
