Yeah. I personally find "FTFY" to be both more irritating and more pervasive than "first world problems", but I don't think they should ban it.


I'd be behind instructing users not to purposely misquote someone. That's more rude in my opinion.

But this site is about many different types of games, including dexterity and card games with a standard deck. There are entries for Go, for many related abstract games, for games in the chess family, for dominoes, or even various versions of draughts.

I've not seen any definition of 'third world' yet, but all these games are quite commonly played in many candidate countries, particularly when you look to Asia.

Sure it's difficult to precisely define 'third world' and in every country there are rich people and poor people etc, but I think the basic point was simply that anyone who's got access to the Internet and the means and knowledge and desire to use this site is obviously in a better economic position than many people in the world, probably not starving to death, etc.
