JK is going to be down on you like a ton of bricks for using that J word.

I dunno, you better ask JK. He deleted the last post I made using that word and scolded me.

I think it was because of the context you used it in. Not the word it self.

Just to clarify the subject see.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jap
At the time I was not aware of this but I am now and I did not use it in a derogatory context. However, someone else did on the same thread. It would appear that JK is smarter than both of us.
Subject closed.

That was the very first outboard I owned, although the engine looked exactly same as the ones in the pictures but with the addition of a fibreglass cover.

Not unless John Alfred Prestwick has a derogatory meaning

I don't see the problem with the term anyway-it's only the same as calling us Brits.
