View Full Version : The Dirtiest Word In Pool Forum Jargon

I am and have been thoroughly convinced that the dirtiest, nastiest, most vile word that can be used on pool forums is "SYSTEM", especially when coupled with "AIMING". Although it's also used in conjunction with "BANKING", "KICKING", or "DIAMOND", nothing seems to set off a furor, rebellion, denegration, or denial of use more than "AIMING SYSTEM". It just absolutely blows my mind.

It should probably be stated as, "aiming techniques", "aiming methods", "ways to see the shot", "ways to line up the shot", or anything else other than "system". I don't know what the hell it is about the word itself that causes such revulsion.

EVERYBODY uses a way or ways to "line up the shot", and it can be identified or categorized with a name. It's no different than all of the names given to the moves in figure skating, platform high diving, dancing, wrestling holds, or a bunch of other areas.
But let those ways or names to "line up a shot" become part of an "aiming system" and hold onto your hats, Nellie!
