Is calling other posters "Nazi" OK here?

This "Sam L" did it several times.

Could it be solidarity among US-UK-Commonwealth posters and mods against Germans?

Discuss ....

I couldn't care less what people on this board call me. It's the Internet after all. Also, like, I grew up in extreme poverty in Brooklyn only to single-handedly become a world-famous, Academy-Award winning actress, rising above the poverty and shame of her childhood and battling all the sharks in Hollywood to achieve superstardom and fortune. Like some twerp on an Internet message board calling me a name is going to offend me????

Hm, Helen, I was born with a golden spoon in my mouth.

In earlier centuries members of my family would have challenged people like this Sam L to a duel.

BTW, some members of my family were killed under the Nazi rule. So it's not exactly a joke for me ...

Only if the insulter was of the same estate. Otherwise, they would consider it beneath them to pay him that much attention.

People here called Schruff a "Nazi-bitch" as well.

Ok, you are right.
I wonder what they would have done with her instead ....

Joke or no joke, to me it's a message board, it's the Internet, it's not real, so I don't put any weight on what people really say here, particularly the name-callers. But I'm not European, so maybe I don't treat the term with sufficient gravity.

It is really disturbing. All this anti-German hate here. And of course Steffi is the main victim.

They won WW2 (and thankfully so). Why can't they accept at least that a German girl is the greatest-ever tennis player?

I just don't get it ...

I hope it isn't and if it is, please count me out of it (being a Welsh lover of Germany!)

This is not real???? Internet is a real thing. The only difference is that you do not have eye-contact when talking but it's comparable to writing letters. You have to put weight on what people say here because they mean it like they write it.
