OK, during my 5 years on bb.com, this weird is casually thrown out in about 99.9% of all posts. "thanx bro" "aight bro" "cya there bro" i mean, it's bloody everywhere! What are your views on the word? Does it bother you when someone who don't know calls you their "bro"? and why "bro" and never "bra"? Am I your bro? Are you my bro?
Personally, whatever, but some people get all offended when you call them bro and they respond with something like "LISTEN, I'M NOT YOUR BRO" an a-hole move which is probably a worse thing than being called "bro" by someone you don't know.
Whadda ya think?

Hey bro, would you rather we say DUDE all the time?
WE are all sharing a common interest here and so I use the work bro because you are my BB.com brothers.

Yeah I thoroughly embrace the use of the word Bro... Anything that kills the "DUDE" phase...
God I was so sick of the word "Dude" before I came to this site...
Now Bro is in my everyday vernacular!6'4"

And within one generation he's been reduced to a feckless, bed wetting, parmesan shaving imbecile who revels in his own uselessness... Something has to be done." -James May

I hate the word bro. I don't mind it online as much as I do in real life. It's one of those words that if someone has it in their vocabulary, it's bound to be overused. Just like "dude" and "like..."CP3, DWill > Rose Heat, Knicks, Thunder, Clippers > Bulls
Imagine there's no heaven,
It's easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
living for today...
Imagine there's no countries,
It isn't hard to do?
Nothing to kill or die for,
And no religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...
You may say I'm a dreamer,
but I'm not the only one,
I hope some day you will join us,
And the world will be as one
