I think the term "LOPster" is offensive. Especially because it is not a real word. LOPster IMO is a term made up by a 5 year old with WAY too much time on their hands. I think that anyone that calls me by anything other than my username or the name I sign my posts by is being offensive. I also find it a bit amusing that the same people who say that the ones who are offended by it are being overly sensitive,and should calm down or "grow up" are the first ones to lower their own maturity level. The LOPsters are simply beside themselves at not having come up with a better term for we optimists than "dreamer."
some people have better things to do with themselves.
"If the claw fits, wear it." is your mommy home, please?
Adam uses the word lopster in chat. The word is not meant to be demeaning to members. It's simply a word that is used to define members that believe a straight LOP is inevitable. If one person is offended, then I think it can be considered offensive. I think that AM is a smart man. I believe that he could find a better term IF he wanted to. But using the term "LOPster" is IMO one of the best ways to gain favor with the ones who believe in the 100,000% RV. The ones who believe it will LOP are a lot less likely to go VIP.
