    Exactly.

    Brian: "Andre Woolfolk can't cover NFL receivers"
    WoolfolksUncle: "You're just a hater"
    Brian: "Umm, ok"

    that's probably true 90% of the time

    it's definition isn't as harsh as it appears to sound

    originaly coined as a "Player Hater" (in this point "player" describing a pimp-wannabe) it describes how a person is envious or jealous of another 'pimp' or 'playa' who "plays" the 'circuit' (clubs) for 'digits' (phone numbers) or other
    it's a slang phrase created by a hip-hop nation

    "Hating" on Peyton just means that people are disgusted or disappointed in him. also, hating on is a little different than hating

    if that clears it up any

    I think it would be borderline silly and overlysensitive to ban the word "hater". If it really is that offensive or something, then uh...:sad2:


    "Beasting" ain't no hip hop language. That's just some word Critical uses a lot. Cats don't say "beasting" on the east coast.

    I think it may come down to a judgement call by looking at the rest of message in context. Personally, I don't care for the term but that is the old in me talking.

    Yeah, but if you ban hater, we'll always come up with another hip hop slang term! Next thing you know, Jeff'll be trying to ban aquafina!
