How many names have you been called on the internet?
I have been called a drama queen, crazy, and most recently a bigot.

There is really only one insulting label I still can't tolerate,

but never mind about that.

7. Used to have a list of about 3,000
I'm talking about a different kind of names though ... for a long time, it was a running joke for people on CIS, GEnie, IRC channels, etc. to come up with guesses as to what qnr really meant (I've been online in various ways since 1981).

11. It's a communications operating signal, used in aviation, that means:
"I am approaching my point of no return."

To clarify a bit, 'OPSIGS" are communications codes used in CW (morse code) and with teletypes that are understood worldwide, no matter what someones native language might be.

12. None, except for a guy in the sports forum who spewed all sorts of hate
until he got ts'ed. He has had at least five reincarnations in the last few months, but is still thankfully gone.

17. Uhmmm. TZ is still around, and she never
continually referred to me as "retarded"

:shrug:

You are a Dallas Cowboys fan also! :hi:

18. Using the term "retarded" as an insult bothers me too
I guess that would make 2 still on my list.


And, yes, I am a fan too (though I don't like Jerry Jones).

:hi:

19. The only one that comes to mind was being called a misogynist on DU.
I had mentioned being hurt (emotionally) by my wife at the time as she went through PMS. And I mean really gut-wrenching insults and so forth from her. It didn't matter to that DU-er that we made up afterward; I simply wasn't supposed to feel anything when she was going through that, so I was a woman-hater for being hurt by her tirade. :eyes:

20. There is such a disadvantage when we can't use the tone of our voice(s),
or other subtleties, during communication on a message board. I've learned this more & more recently. Seems misunderstandings pop-up when we least expect them to.

21. I'm not sure this incident had to do with a lack of tone of voice.
I got the impression I simply wasn't supposed to mention what I felt, or have feelings at all.

I don't remember if that happened in GD or LBN, but I am happy I eventually found the safe-havens of The Lounge and ASAH :D

22. What is ASAH?
Sorry, I know I'm probably being stupid. And I should get some sleep. But, you know me, always curious.

27. That one doesn't bother me...
interestingly enough. I guess I consider it somewhat of a compliment. To be vile takes some command of the English language & creativity. ;-)

29. Not many
I don't tend to enjoy fighting with people on the internet (not saying you do) but I've been called an asshole and accused of being a freeper here on DU. Considering the source of said insults, I'm not the least bit bothered by it! :evilgrin:

30. I've been called just about everything. But who cares
It's all sticks and stones.
Words only have power over you if you let them.

31. A few--one really angry mouth-frother even called me a liberal
Somehow I survived that one, along with corporate apologist, socialist, CIA agent, and a
few others that I think were meant to insult me, but I was too busy yawning to find out.

They always seemed to come from people who disagreed with something I said :shrug:

33. Lol
Everyname in the book. Usually occurs when someone is losing an argument with me! It usually makes me laugh as I have pride in my debating skills and when a retort is nothing but an insult, it's because my post is good and logical. The worst thing I've been called was" child killer/poisoner" and that was in GD..

35. sticks and stones may break my bones..... but whips and chains excite me
NEVER let anyone on the net get to you. Shit, for all we know it's all fake and each of us is the only one that really exists.
