And burning in some cases.
Threads recently have focused around terms that it seems there will never be a common agreement as to their "true" meaning.
Specifically the threads involved discussed "sand-box" and "theme-park" as they are used in reference to MMORPG's and it's clear we not only disagree on the meaning of the words, but where certain titles fall in regards to the two terms.
These aren't the only worlds that contribute to the thread counts here, F2P and the corresponding P2W get thrashed on a regular basis, as they mean different things depending on their implementation with respect to gaming.
So besides the ones I came up with, are there any other terms (or concepts perhaps) you can come up with which we'll likely never come to an agreement on (with regards to MMO's) which will likely be the subject of repeat thread postings for many years to come?
Arrogant, Condescending, Dismissive, Elitist, "Meany", you speak as if these are bad things?

Here are a few to get started:
OWPVP - "Open World Player Versus Player"
Try combining some of these in any particular order (random or no), prefixing the sentence with one of the games on the Hype-meter; e.g. try "Shroud of the Avatar Endgame Cash Shop in Virtual Reality!" as a thread title.

Is it MMORPG or just MMO?
PvE without consequences.
"this is not really forum pvp"
So, did ESO have a successful launch? Yes, yes it did.

I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

Things are especially bad right now because it's summer and news has been pretty scarce in every gaming forum aside from the Sony/MS new console war and the indie game scene.So the wheels here haven't been so much turning as spinning in place.
But to the subject at hand :
Payment Models(B2P,P2P,F2P etc)
