Thread deleted

Hi guys

I posted a new thread some days ago in Olympics subforum. Why is deleted "El potorro de Concha Martínez cheering thread"?

Thanks

Me parece amí que va a ser porque saben español Trankilo, que amí también suelen borrar algún thread que otro

Ya tío, pero "potorro" no es una palabra ofensiva. Yo defenderé mi post a muerte, que bien que me lo curré

LOL tiene lo suyo, no me negarás...
Y más para gente que español sabe lo justito, por lo que en general no creo que sepan capaces de distinguir demasiado cuándo potorro significa una cosa o la otra.
Si eso que te lo devuelvan, retocas el nombre, y todos contentos

Ya Central, pero no es ofensivo para la tenista. Era sólo una manera original de llamar a los típicos "Conchita Martinez cheering thread", el sentido que yo le doy a potorro es como decir: ole tus huevos. Mi intención no era mala, y si lo veían ofensivo podrían haberme avisado para que cambiase el nombre.

Yo sólo quería hacer un thread-homenaje a mi tenista favorita

Don't you know it's impolite to talk a language people don't speak?

Your thread was deleted as the first meaning of potorro isn't all that nice. If your intention wasn't bad, then just create a new thread with a decent title. It doesn't really matter how nice your intention was, as lots of people know some Spanish words and wouldn't grasp your oh so nice intention.

Well, I'm until the potorro of seeing people who type in German,French,Polish,Flemish and such languages in the middle of threads like the live-scoring ones, also there have been some people who asked us the spaniards to talk in english in "The Spanish Armada". Oh, and I'm also until the potorro of seeing people (like mboyle) who corrects all the English errors maked by the foreigners.

Vamos, potorro vamos.

Yeah.

lol... i think we've gotten your point sonfo

i still believe whoever deleted it had the right to do so, as this is how non-spanish people would see the meaning of the word

i hope you understand
