Victim of the Year is N I C O L E
Victim of the Year Walker is NO victim. BITCH and LIAR of the year yeah, but victim, lmfao!
Seriously, Dude? (Or Dudette?)
While I can't speak for Kevin_Buchanan
, I can understand the sentiment, because I had similar thoughts when I first saw this particular filter. Not that I necessarily had a problem with the filter (aside from the fact that I just don't like the filters at all), but I did think that N icole's biggest fans would probably have a problem with it. It can be seen as a derogatory statement, even if it's not necessarily meant as such (or maybe it is :shrug:
). People usually don't like to be seen as victims. Hell, D aniel just retreated to a "deserted" island a few days ago for exactly that reason.
Off of the top of my head, I'd say that N icole and W ill's filters are the two that have the most potential to offend some people. (To be clear, I do think that the moderators were just trying to have some fun, and none of the filters offended me personally [annoyed, perhaps, but not offended], but it's easy to misinterpret intentions on the Internet.)
N'icole's was taken from the recent SOD that had her listed as "the most tortured character of the year". And that is of any soap. If I were a big C'aroline fan, I think I'd be most offended by her filtered name, lol.
