I wanted to visit this website to see how the XNA workshop is coming along. Little did I know the shock I would recieve after viewing the front page. There is a racist remark in plain view. Given the tons of children that visit this site, it's ridiculous. Is this the path this site is taking? If so, I won't be a part of it.

I could never get used to the lighter skins that the site has tended towards in recent years.

I assume you are kidding, but since you've only been here for half a year, and no doubt just drop in every once and a while, I invite you to read that comment in context and see for yourself that the user is absolutely not talking about lighter skins of ale, and thus, not racially neglecting Ireland's heavy but fine meads.

Read the post in question, however, to get greater clarity before coming to a conclusion.
It's perfectly fine to abbreviate my username to 'Servant' rather than copy+pasting it all the time.

Excellent journalism skills!

Eye catching title: 100%
Appropriately taken things out of context: 100%
Length of article: 20%

Would have been a D if you went on about how the united nations should shutdown gamedev.net because of this terrible racist comment against white people.

Credit.

Why is it that we only ever hear/raise a fuss about white people being racist?

(this IS a joke thread, right?)

Speaking of racism, personally I find this guy and this dude incredibly cynical. I mean, I can totally understand why Britain was in such a hurry to get rid of the previous PM.

PS - and this guy is just plain old racist.

And this bitch? I mean, WTF!

And would you believe it, there is an entire British comedy show devoted to making a mockery of selected native American Indians suffering from dwarfism.

That is a possibility... pasty poms do get sun-raped easily. ;)
