Brit it is how I typed it I said the three letter word for a game. If it was an English game I would have said that. But I said the game was from Japan that is how I used it but used an abreviation. I will never use it again. I work for the post office and every country needs three letters and that is the abreviation we use. I think it's funny that if I was talking about our football team in Washington the redskins it would not be interpreted as a racial slur when it is way way more harm ful then the abreviation of a country. That is allowed though. I dunno look I won't use the abreviation anymore but hey web,aster how about a warning next time all I ask.

Got it, I suppose you learnt something new huh, just don't use it in future.

 

Good luck to you mooserocka.

Since that is the abreviation they use. I'm mad cause I didn't get a warning or nothing. If I did I would have stopped using the abreviation. N typed the last two letters out. But it is like I said how can is for Canada and mex is for Mexico. England is different its like gbt or something I'm not sure though. I did not mean it in any way as a racial slur and I think it's stupid it was interpreted as so. How about next time I get a warning first so I kno then ifmimcontinue using it ban me. Geeez. Now I know not to abbreviate Japan anymore.

This is why many professions are going away from 3-letter country abbreviations and starting to use 2 letter abbreviations.

 

Canada is CA

Mexico is MX

England is GB

United States is US

France is FR

Jamaica is JM

Japan is JP

Germany is DE

Denmark is DK

Don't worry about it, forget it & move on, treat it as a learning experience of sorts!

 

Happy gaming!

I'll use US & not USA sometimes, actually most of the time, I also use UK & not GB, no point at all in my using ENG because most of America doesn't know what it means lol, I would still use JPN for Japan & not JP!
