Hi

It is obvious to me that certain groups of WoT players discriminate against other WoT players using derogatory terms on the basis of the class of vehicle driven.  You people know who you are.

In repsonse to this ape mentality discrimination I propose a new salute or taunt to bolster the morale and taunt the class haters.

 

First though a little history.

It is said the two finger rude hand gesture comes from the middle age bowman who used it to taunt their opponents.

 

I propose therefore a taunt to be used by artilery players represented by the number "6" which represents the pointing finger (clicker finger) to show arty haters that the arty player still has use of their clicker finger.

 

Good day Sirs.

  The archers salute is in reference that the French used to remove the index & middle fingers of an archer so that he could not shoot them. This

led to archers showing them that they still had the aforementioned digits & could still shoot. Wether you would be able to see such a gesture from

over a hundred yards away? I'm not sure.

 On topic the problem with said proposal is most of us use the same index finger to fire the gun of whichever vehicle we are using at the time, we are

all, therefore, by definition 'clickers' regardless of vehicle type.

Yes I agree but the arty-whiners are most sensitive to criticism and I feel sorry for that, so I let them maintain their fantasy.

is stereotyping another word for typing with both hands?
