Could we change "Amphetamine Parrot" to "White Dwarf"?

Or "Warhammer Visions."

I just think it would be a less jarring experience the first time someone saw the filter applied. I remember being like, "Whats an Amphetamine Parrot?"

Now, I'd see something like... "That model looks like a piece of White Dwarf, I'd never buy it." and I'd instantly know what was going on.

Short answer - no.

Longer answer - still no.

If you can't make fun of something, it's probably not worth taking seriously.

You have to love the smell of science in the morning. It smells of learning.... or perhaps a gas leak.

It's needlessly defamatory when we have the option of criticising White Dwarf more directly. The swear filter isn't supposed to make sense anyway, and isn't something we can change because someone doesn't like it.
