So, for as long as i can remember, the word "retard" has been thrown around forums and games a like as a way to offend a person or insult there intelligence.
I personally think to use it is disgusting, its offensive to people who are really mentally handicapped, its not their fault its just how they are.
But it seems like its more "accepted", rarely do i see (any ware) someone held accountable for using it, as opposed to saying something like "you fucking ****".
So i thought it might be interesting to have a serious "open" discussion on its usage in the larger gaming scene, and why people think it is/isn't appropriate to use it.
