    Is it ok to say "Kanga power"?

    I say "Kanga power" at the start of each POTC ship battle game since I started VMK. However, some people find it rude to say "Kanga power" and title me some bad titles. I want to say "Kanga power" at each game, but can I get banned for saying it? Please give me your ideas on what to do.

    P.s. I will take all responses in value.

    Re: Is it ok to say "Kanga power"?

    You cannot get banned for saying that, from what I know. Perhaps you shouldn't say it as it does give people the wrong idea. I suggest if you continue too you say good luck (gl) and good game (gg) during the game. I think that should shelter the chance of a ban.

    Re: Is it ok to say "Kanga power"?

    As said, some people might not understand it and in part be offended by (yea, I know, go figure), but it is in no way vulgar or profane nor against VMK Values in any way to say it. So technically speaking, you won't get banned, but potentially could get some angry players now and then.

    The Staff watch Pirates games pretty closely nowadays and will surely let you know if you say something inappropriate.

    Re: Is it ok to say "Kanga power"?

    How could anyone be offended by you saying Kanga power when it is clearly your name? Some people just need to stop being overly sensitive and realize this is just a game and move on. If anyone should be banned it is the other players who say offensive things to you just because you say Kanga power especially if they are using dictionary dance to say bad language. Power on Kanga! And don't let others tell you how you should play as long as you are within the vmk values.

    Thumbs up Re: Is it ok to say "Kanga power"?

    Thanks for sharing your ideas with me. I'll start saying "gl" or "gg" instead of my normal saying "Kanga power" and as evilqueenrocks suggested I think I might try saying "Power of Kanga" if others do not mind.
    I think other (new) VMK players get offended by it because they think I am being mean and thats why they title me "mean.i", "lose.are", or "beach". Some of them tell me that they reported me and I am going to get banned. Thank you all for helping me out and making me decide to say it or not.

    Re: Is it ok to say "Kanga power"?

    I think that the part the VMK players don't like is the "power" part, because they think I am being mean and telling them they can't win. I try to tell them "Respect VMK values" but they still do things they do. They don't really respect my title and I don't know how "kanga" or kangaroo could make someone really mad.

    Re: Is it ok to say "Kanga power"?

    Maybe..

    Here is a definition of a Kanga and a Kangaroo

    Kanga: woman's garment: a brightly colored and decorated piece of cotton cloth for women to wrap around the body as a garment, worn originally and especially in East Africa


    Kangaroo: marsupial with powerful hindquarters: a large leaping marsupial with powerful hind legs, short forelegs, and a long tail. Native to: Australia, New Guinea.
    Two very differant meanings from the dictionary, but I know that when I say "Kanga" I mean it as a kangaroo.
