"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. "

That was not an argument. You threw insults at me in a whispered/private chat and I tried to calmly explain what the words actually meant in case you were too young to understand them or were not British.

Morbid. Uh? How was me asking you to stop being so silly on the WoW guild chat channel morbid?

Fag. A cigarette in the UK and slang for a homosexual man elsewhere. I had already told you I was female. I am also not a cigarette.

virgin. How is that even an insult to you? Oh. Right. You are a teenage cis male. I had already told you I am a married 45 year old woman. Huh.

Sometimes I really think that having read a British English dictionary should be a prerequisite to being allowed to play WoW on an English-speaking (selected when you join) EU server. Yes, I read my first dictionary at about seven years old. Yes, I realise that that might not be normal.
