At the risk of being touchy-feely, I don't know that it had to be a recent event in one's life. A particularly derogatory term slipped thru the filter because it was plural. When Kobe used it, it was national news for a week and he had to go to sensitivity training. It may have been especially shocking to zhao and, quite frankly, I think he may have expected a different reaction from the rest of us. Perhaps he expected me, as commish, to stand beside him on the matter. However, as you know, I think words on the internet are virtually nothing. Meaningless, if you will. So, as 30 others expected, I told him to STFU and quit crying. I think that may have led to the snappage.
All that said, hell yeah, best league ever.
