It depends on the context of what is being said; who's being spoken to, and by whom. If I walk up to a man of color and say "What up, n*gga?", I expect to get my ass kicked. If a man of color says it to another man of color, there is no issue.


That said, I call a spade a spade (or, as the case may be, I call a newb a newb). If someone doesn't like being called a newb (or moron, idiot, asshat, jerkoff, or other colorful titles) and is insulted by that, they should feel free to speak up. Around here, however, I find most titles are earned.

Personally, I prefer FNG as my title of choice. That or Bloggins.
