    Default change the word pls

    with due respect Sir, could someone pls change the word "irreverent" that appears in the Kopitiam description to "irrelevant". i think that is what it is supposed to mean. This forum is exposed to eyes around the world and such wrong choice of word may reflect badly on this country.

    Hmmmm ...

    Irreverent :-
    adjective
    not reverent; manifesting or characterized by irreverence; deficient in veneration or respect

    Sounds about par for the course in our Kopitiam.

    Further defined by :-
    without due respect or veneration; disrespectful; flippant

    From which we took the root word flippant as more suitable to be used.

    Flippant :-
    adjective
    frivolously disrespectful, shallow, or lacking in seriousness; characterized by levity

    Which again sounds about par for the course for Kopitiam.

    Nevertheless, perhaps a slight change in description is in line.

    Me thinks members should be given a major infraction for spamming one liners in multiple consecutive postings within 10 minutes. Also together with another major infraction for every additional unnecessary Ls or whatever alphabets they choose to add behind each acronym or word.

    Hack, just give that member a permanent ban for mongering FUD almost on a daily basic.

    So is the use of the word "H**D" in Kopitiam. It's very suggestive. Let's call it "unsoft" or something.

    The world may think the lesser of us because of it.

    Frankly, the words "hard", "eject", "stiff"...what hv you, are just fine.
    It is the context that they are used in AND most importantly, how the moderator interpret it. Some say can, some say cannot. LOL [must remember to use no more than one "L"]

    Infraction for the bold... it makes me think of some improper abbreviation.

    "Informal, irrelevant and frequently irreverent coffeeshop chat (with limits, of course)."

    There is nothing wrong with this tag.
    "irreverent" is the perfect word used.
    always the Light, .... always.

    These words are too crude. Unfit for a first world nation citizens.

    How about call it "Can Stand" or "Cannot Stand"?

    Thkq for the compliment, bro.
    Trick may not be a nice word, but shld be still within the irreverence limit. IMHO
    Let's just say that we hv consensus among moderator s on the definition. Ya?
