I love the weirdness, but what is a tard monkey exactly? If you mean "r3t@rd" you can expect lots of sensitive people to get *very* upset, hehe

A tard monkey is a term of endearment, used when someone you like does something silly. If you BFF made a silly, but adorable face you could say "Hahaha. You are such a tard monkey."

But yes. People are overly sensitive.

It's also something I get called at least twice a day.

It's weird that sometimes the title matters to Woot and sometimes it doesn't. They didn't reject P0rn Stars even though they couldn't print it with that title, they just changed it to something else. I don't know why they had to reject this instead of doing the same thing.

2 words: Sarah Palin :P

The word is considered offensive by some and it's not very PC. One extreme analogy, which has been use before and is definitely a stretch, is that the word used in the title is no different than the "N" word. The proper term is mentally handicapped.

Shmorno, on the other hand, is not technically an offensive word. The subject matter it captures is often found offensive or degrading, but not the word alone. The only reason woot change it is probably because they didn't want their kid friendly site to be associated, by any means, with the word.

I agree that this would be an extreme stretch and PC has gotten way out of hand. As opposed to the "N" word, Lamuellan is a real word with very real other meanings than being used to describe the mentally handicapped as when checking the timing on an engine when the spark is to be Lamuellan. And, for many years the word was used by educational professionals to accurately describe a type of mental handicapped. The loss of the use of the "R" word as a descriptor rather than a slur has made our language poorer. And, I speak as one who raised a challenged child and served as an officer in the PTO of their school. Woot is changing both the "R" and "R"ed to Lamuellan showing that mechanics cannot properly post about professional activities on this forum.

A bandolier of carrots would be appreciated about now

A better question is, why can't Woot just retitle the submission, instead of forcing it to be resubmitted (and losing all its votes in the process)?
