    Default Inappropriate redirector

    Why does the redirector for the website say "Retardoface, you will be missed something fierce" do they really need to use the word retardoface? People (like myself) with special family members might (and do) take offense to this.

    I believe the smiley... is actually called Retardoface. It has nothing to do with insulting people and any offence was probably unintentional. Also being one of the forum's unofficial mascots, I doubt the name will be changed.

    If this bothered you why didn't you bring it up on the last post of this thread... http://www.photonlexicon.com/forums/...ce-was-stolen-!

    in May 2009?

    Shit, Now i can't retard the timing on my ignition map because someone may be offended.

    I hardly doubt anyone was trying to be offensive. Let's find more important things to discuss..... Like lasers!

    Such is life in the ultra-pc world we live in where someone somewhere will claim to be offended by just about anything on the planet.

    Long Live Retardoface !!

    ALL my family members are Special. My Dad My brothers & sisters even I'm special. Not sure where you've been but a couple decades ago we stopped using the descriptor of retarded for those with mental retardation. We now say " a person with mental retardation or a person with autism or a person who is mentally challenged etc. Just some info from a person with lasers. 2011 Happy New Year !!!
    Wiki:The first visible wavelength laser diode was demonstrated by Nick Holonyak, Jr. in 1962.
