The upside down “ok” in photos WAS a game, but for the last 5-10 years, it has been known to be used by white supremacists. We aren’t talking the regular “ok” symbol. I'm not sure how people wouldn’t know this by now there has been so much written about it in the last few years? Regardless of their intention, it is completely juvenile. And speaking of juvenile... yes, how about that Port!
Most people know what it has been used for in recent years, but giving attention, gives it air. Let it die.

Never write port with a capital, it might send them a sign. ;)

Geez its hard to keep up.

So the "OK" hand sign that people have been doing for centuries is now considered racist cos some white supremacists in the USA started doing it a few years ago.

Is there a think tank that decides these things?
They use it as an identifier, pretty selfish of them to use a world wide known hand signal for yes, couldn't they have picked like Red shoelaces or something that didn't effect every one on the planet.

No - just a regular reaction from someone who doesn't label other people ignorant and dumb, just beacuse they aren't on the cutting edge of the latest social justice media circle-jerk.
That you label it a 'social justice media circle-jerk' says everything about why you don't want to acknowledge it. This isn't made up by lefties. It wasn't co-opted and corrupted by SJWs, it was RWNJs, and they deliberately use the fact that it was once just a stupid game to pretend that it is all still innocent. It isn't. And it is widely known. If anyone reading this thread didn't know about it, you all now do. Consider yourself better informed.

If Collingwood had sold De goey last year maybe they'd be able to afford Harry McKay you know a key forward who actually kicks goals and takes contested marks and wins games, they played themselves

Losing Treloar and Stephenson was a massive mistake, hell I even thought of it at the time and that it would ruin any chances of them making the 8.

I dont know the salary cap details of the Pies, but if I had to consider losing a player out of Moore, Stephenson, DeGoey, Grundy and Treloar, I would have actually gone with DeGoey, mainly because he would have offered the most value last year, would have eased their salary cap and given his off field issues, it was a no brainer for me.

De Goey is a 1/5 BOG, he definitely is not consistent.

Given that we are half an hour behind in SA compared to Vic, time wise and mentally down at West Lakes about 3 hours behind, there needs to be some strong consideration given that our game v Eagles is played potentially at AO.

So just catching up on the Frank Costa news. While he seems like a decent man, I really don't understand how the separate cleaning contract between him and Dangerfield's was not investigated more. Otherwise, I am sure that the Gerards are looking for a gardener....and I am sure the Rankine's, Stephens or Lukocious' nearest and dearest would love to fill the role....

THERE will be a 32-year first unfold at Marvel Stadium this Saturday evening, when North Melbourne coach David Noble is forced to plot against his own son – Collingwood defender John Noble.



If Noble was with us, he would place Mackay on him. :$

So thumbs down actually meant let him live?
yes, and it was only ever used once, in a naval battle reenactment

That can be our catch cry

I agree with all that but to say that I’m dumb (not you) because I don’t research alternate meanings of childish games is beyond belief.
Sorry you must have me confused with another poster. I would never (almost never) call someone dumb on here.

I try my best to bring some laughs and smiles only. Sometimes I get it right, most times wrong. lol. But I try. :$

EDIT

Sorry just saw the not you part. All good. Gosh I should read more carefully. :$
