One one hand, it is dumb to change things because a few morons can't hear correctly or want to be in a constant state of outrage, however, "dinger" is a stupid term.

"It was dinger...said digger by mistake. I would never say that" the Mexican-American sportscaster wrote on Instagram after someone accused her of accidentally saying the "N-Word on live TV."

Narrator:  Sports world was, in fact, not rocked, upset nor enraged.

God help that kid if he's ever misheard.  "They call me Big Al and I hit [attractive and successful African Americans]."

We're just going to have to accept that some words that aren't slurs, but sort of sound like slurs, are going to get tossed.

The word "nubianrdly" (meaning miserly) is a perfectly innocent word with no racial connotations whatsoever, but I doubt you'll find many using that word in conversation these days.

Hah - the Fark filter changed even the innocent word I was writing.

Just further proves my point, I think.

Some good words are going to be lost in the effort to eliminate slurs.  Just have to accept it.

So, there isn't a controversy over what was said, rather what some rando thought they heard?

Twice?

It doesn't matter a pair of Dinger's kidneys.

Wait... the wasn't even a thread about the Sunday thing?

I guess I'm glad Fark didn't participate in the erroneous witch hunt. But it was probably because an admin decided none of the headlines were good enough.

Right... after it had all been settled. I meant the need to go crazy on a man they assumed was being racist.

I guess he was lucky it wasn't at Fenway.

well no. There were two threads on Monday. The first, with 40 posts, was prior to the explanation. Surprisingly Farkers reacted quite reasonably.

I would agree with you on that word, but dinger isn't close enough to be banished from polite company.
