Do you think it's Hypocrite?
Posted 6/4/09 , edited 6/4/09
Do you think it's Hypocrite/Stereotypical when someone who is not Japanese / Korean / Chinese admit that they're Japanese/Korean/Chinese? If...

1) They don't look like one

2) They do look like one

I wonder.. (-.-")

hmmm... I believe thats the wrong use of the word.

A hypocrite is someone who says not to do something but does it themselves... so if i told you not to eat icecream cause it was fattening and ate it anyways, I'd be a hypocrite.

No, it's not Hypocrite, nor is it Hypocritical in the 2 instances you brought forth.

1) If they don't look like one, and are not one, it's called ---> LYING
2) If they do look like one, but are not one, it's STILL called ---> LYING

Hmmm...there may be a tinge of inadvertent stereotyping in example #2 (They do look like one)...

What do you expect a user to do without a proper forum search feature? I say stop bitching and enjoy the site.

Funny how I've managed perfectly fine with this "improper forum search feature". Yes it sucks, but it still does the job necessary.

And you expect new members to know exactly how to work things out? Don't get me wrong, it's good to have members that are aware of the rules, but things go out of hand when you spam that image everywhere.

If you wanna make a difference, send the thread starter a PM, telling him/her what to do and then use the report button. It's there for a reason .

I expect people to read the rules before posting, though that expectation that has been betrayed time and time again.

I place the image in a spoiler for a reason, and most of the time I don't quote the person in question, so I'm not really forcing myself on them.

I've been a newbie at this site myself, but it didn't stop me from using the search toggle. The only time I tried to make a thread that would have broken rules, it got stopped - because I didn't have enough points to make a thread, and that was enough to make me realise how foolish the thread was.
