I call Godwin's law and claim my five dollars. You have lost.

Seriously though, noone's in a blanket defense of using the word nigger.
We're in defense of not taking it upon ourselfves to remove genres from
a list of a standard which *noone* outside a few of you have voiced any
concern about.

The genre is apparently a perfectly valid Dutch word - I suspect there
was a dutchman at Nullsoft who added this thing, simple as that. You're
the one putting negative meaning into this word where there is none.

I suggest you go and fight some real problems instead of making ones up.
Yes, you are overreacting, and I suggest you make changes where they are
needed.

Your talk about importance amuses me. This has got to be the most
irrelevant case of "PC racism" ever.

Now stop posting this nonsense and let us all get on with our lives.
