    pros: could be fun and clarifying
    cons: the search function is dreadful and this might be getting a bit silly!

    ships!!! who in his sane mind could disagree!

    you're inciting, but i'm still deliberating and got more cons:
    - lot of work
    - it may get personal so it had to be anonymized which implies
    - even more work

    processing ...

    Back before search broke I checked "psycho" against "carebear" whilst a PVP'er told me they were being picked on in an evil mod conspiracy.

    It was 50/50.

    I think checking "doomed" is what broke the forum.

    *1 so it isn't enough that you call me that, it has to become common place. you might start a campaign ...
    So essentially all who're using this term in our forums are illiterate dumb clucks?

    Bigot has been overused and is used by loony leftists to smear someone with differening opinions. Just like a whiteknight!

    Wasn't "white knight" some sort of "fanboy 2.0"?

    Whiny snowflake millennials who need safe spaces or a crying room for every minor issue that happens to them = White Knight!

    I'm unsure whether you are being deliberately sarcastic, or whether the irony of what you wrote is completely lost on you?

    To be honest this has turned nasty.

    Closing.
