Hello. I'm a bit confused. What's more accepted/usual, calling you guys "furries" or "furs"? Knowing will help me with consistency. Chibithulu 23:29, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Personally, I alternate with both. I don't think there is a different connotation between the two, at least that I am aware of. Simba B 00:05, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
I say "furries" .. because I think "furs" can be misinterpreted (by animal-rights activists) as a reference to fur coats. --EarthFurst 02:52, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
You have a point, however this misinterpretation can only happen in some contexts. So good advice would be to be aware of the context when you are using "furs". Simba B 03:47, 19 November 2006 (UTC)
