The no personal attacks on members rule isn't rocket science. It's not even remedial math.



Wench was indeed insulting. In 1788.


I've never known wench to mean anything more than a young lady or a beer server.

perhaps if you don't acknowledge any fluidity in language.


wench is akin to bastard in its colloquial usage... just generally not that offensive.

Just for giggles I googled 'define wench' and it's like 5th or 6th link before you get to any sort of definition that has a negative or offensive connotation (and the majority of those are listed as archaic)... and while I'm sure Mr Scot wasn't using the term in a "positive" manner, the point still stands that the "personal attack" policy on this site is in reference to (as Kurb has already explained) members of the site.

...and not to mention the fact that this entire discussion is the height of irony as it was instigated by the very person who is by FAR the most likely to attack, insult, and degrade anyone on here that doesn't share his opinions.
