Hi B, I think most all of the gay slurs in that thread are used in a joking or a non-serious way. Kwilk, for example, most assuredly is using it in a joking way. As is Labelking. I'll be honest with you, B, but I'm a little curious why are you seemingly so interested in having so many discussions of behavior (avatars, language, etc.), especially when it seems you are misinterpreting the behavior? Again, maybe it's just a topic for discussion, but I really just don't see why we are telling people they can't make off-color jokes. If the "slurs" were egregious and done in derogatory fashion, then of course that is worth complaint. But, for the most part, what I've seen of the use of the words has been done in an intentionally egregious, ironic manner for humor. Maybe it's not funny to you, but in a thread on which tensions can run so high, sometimes a really "over the top" joke can add a needed bit of levity.
