I'm tired of seeing the word "toxic" everywhere.  It's overused and all it's good for is starting needless arguments.  We should have a word filter to replace all instances of it with something else instead.

I nominate the word "fragrant".

Better idea: Adjust the filter to make any use of "toxic" into a hyperlink to the following video.

If they don't stop, then at least you get something to amuse yourself with.

This is why you don't shoot your mouth off about how great you are, while continuing to lose match after match.  Enjoy your new ranking, Ehmry Bay.  It's truly the one you deserved.

Can we replace it with "Rassy"?

It's a somewhat slippery slope to apply word filters, though if we were to do it I'd have to insist on replacing 'toxic' with 'Britney'.

Overall this whole toxic thing will probably just fizzle out, those who (over)use it are folks who actually paid money to switch servers but still feel the need to be righteous on here.  They can only keep that up for so long before they realize that their opinion is irrelevant.

There also seem to be plenty of individuals who take exception to any slight they perceive while disregarding the fact that typing does not convey tone, meaning, or sarcasm.

Typing doesn't convey body language but consideration of others does require maturity and intellectual superiority.
