Can we stop? Seriously, this Nits argument has gone long enough. Every discussion where that word appears turns to ****. I enjoy coming here and wasting my time, but to be honest, these past couple of weeks it's just been a drag with this stupid Nits argument. I'm going to be honest here, both sides are holding on for dear life, and are forgetting the "community" part of the community we have.
To the users: Sometimes, we have to put up with annoying things we don't like in order to enjoy the things we do like. Yes, I don't particularly like the term myself (admittedly, I don't have a problem with Nitt, but I digress), but I don't see why we have to ruin perfectly good threads having arguments about a simple word. Maybe if we'd gotten over it a while ago, they would have stopped using the word and life would have gone on. This is not the case, but it's not too late to just let it go. It's a word, guys, a word.
To the mods: I get it, you guys do work hard to provide quality content that we all enjoy, and in the grand scheme of things, this is the least of your worries. However, unlike the new format, the new posting style, the logo, and many other things controlled by SBNation, this word you can do something about. Why not just keep the harmony with us, your users, over something so simple as a word? At the end of the day, we are your users, and I think keeping everybody's happiness is more important than engaging in a trivial battle.
Hopefully we can come to an agreement, because I don't want to see more threads getting closed down for something so stupid.
