    It's the name a 4 year old child would use, like doggy and daddy instead of dog and dad.

    Everytime I see someone write that word it makes me think of that stupid "Greek" show on ABC Family. This is not a good thing.

    It has to be about the worst pet name for a really nice phone... or anything for that matter, that Ive ever heard.

    Maybe mods can give us a filter option that replaces cappy with captivate.

    YES BAN IT!

    Calling your Captivate, a Cappy, is just enviting people to call it "Crappy Cappy"

    Do you want people calling your phone "crappy cappy?" I didn't think so!

    So we should ban something just because you, or a few people don't like it? I think Hyundai cars are complete garbage... lets ban them. I hate tomatoes... lets ban them. Guns are scary.. lets ban them.

    Grow up guys. If you don't like it, then don't use it. However, suggesting that your opinions matter more than people who like calling their phone a cappy is just ridiculous.

    Just for the record, you won't ever hear me calling my phone a cappy, but if someone paid money for their phone, I support their right to call it whatever they damn well please.

    Although the word bothers me this post wasn't meant to ruffle any feathers so don't take it personally.

    Wow... I laughed out loud when I saw this in the list of new threads. I was pretty sure that it wasn't your true intent to "ban" the word. I guess some folks have become attached to the pet name.

    I hate "cappy". I'm not extreme enough to ban it. I merely skip reading messages or threads that use the term (except for this one because it said "poll").

    Edit: it could be like the Acer Liquid Stream phone. (until everyone calls it the piss phone).

    I don't think we should ban it because it would become a slippery slope. More specifically, the next thing banned would be "pee pee." Unacceptable.
