Nah, it will be fine. Prize donors can send prizes to me and I’ll distribute.
Woo hoo! I won something! So the raffle shows me under my original CAG name (Cheaplikeafox), will that be an issue? I noticed it when I bought the raffle tickets.

I locked the thread at kyles request so that he could make a new one.
I knew BB was gone, but I didn't qualify for access to the forum so couldn't confirm its current existence on my own. Thanks.
Too bad Cheapy didn't want to keep it around. Have a good weekend.

This is a great discussion if you want to hear everyone agree with each other.
The fine folks over at Waypoint talk about the whole disrespect/logan/etc mess in their latest podcast.

If you want to compare Alex Jones, a guy not in costume, using his real name, who hosts a conspiracy "news" show to the exact opposite of that, I guess that is something you can do.
If we label making jokes such as creating a fake language as "racist" what do we call the people who believe their race is superior to others? There are jokes that make fun of race. Some of them are funny and some are not. They are all likely to offend at least someone.
Just because you find this offensive or unfunny does not mean it is advancing an agenda of race superiority. This is the definition of racism and racist. When you hang the label of "racist" in these types of situations, you diminish the impact of calling out people who actually think this way.
Nuance is not awarded on the internet which is why people throw around these labels so easily. The popular YouTuber who originally called out Doc could have tweeted about how he was offended and given him some constructive criticism. Nope, instead he went immediately to calling him RACIST and implied he was a garbage human being. Surely insulting a popular figure and labeling them a racist on social media is the best way to get them to change their behavior.
Meanwhile, I was explaining this whole situation to Mrs. Cheapy and she was wondering why people are using the word "racist" since Chinese is not a race. As an Asian I think she was more offended that people don't know that Japanese and Chinese aren't races.
Anyway, heres a video from several months ago where doc explains where his fake language comes from.
Be warned, he's super racist!
Here is the guy who originally called him out and he says he doesnt think Guy is racist. Honestly, i think this guy just did it for the YouTube views. If he really wanted Doc to change, he could have done this all in a much better way:

I'm not comparing Bill Maher and Doc. I'm comparing Bill and Guy Beahm.
If you can't separate the character of Dr. Disrespect from the man portraying him, we can't really advance the discussion.
I'm pretty sure the people who are unable to do this are also people who don't actually watch his show.
The character of Dr. Disrespect, in reality, is actually very tame. If you watched his stream and not just clips, you would know this. Since there is very little cursing in general, the "disrespectful" insults he throws out are along the lines of telling people their breath stinks and they couldn't make his high school varsity basketball team. Yes, there is a lot of yelling and silliness, but it's nowhere along the lines of a cable comedy show like South Park, Eastbound and Down, or 100 others.
Yes, the character of Dr. Disrespect is being disrespectful to the Chinese people he is playing against. He is being disrespectful to everyone he plays against.
