    You really are clueless about these rigs.

    Their name was changed long before the rig blowout.


    This is flat out pathetic. This is literally like getting mad at Toyota for making a ****ty car and then coming on here and saying they aren't Toyota anymore, they are Toyota industries, inc, so at least get it right. C'mon man.

    Are you being fa' real or you just ****t'n us?
    If you view getting the information correct as "pathetic" then so be it. "British Petroleum" has not existed for almost a decade, so it is hardly similiar to the Toyota example you describe.

    How many years did BP stand for British Petroleum? Since 1954. How many years has it not? Since 1998. Yea, that's what I thought. It's a play on words. Who the **** cares? Get a life.

    To even debate this means AP and I have won this debate hands down.

    I will tell you "who cares", the people wanting to file suit against the company, the people looking for checks from the company etc. If I was a fisherman who wanted to sue BP for damages and walked down to the court house to file my suit against "British Petroleum", it would simply be thrown out because there is no such company.

    Words matter.

    Since I have argued all along in favor of your and AP's position, I fail to see how this statement matters to me.

    To use your words, since I have no plan on suing BP, I fail to see how this statement matters to me.

    I just don't get the aversion to calling something by its proper name. That is just the way I feel about it.

    It's proper name is BP. The thread is not even about BP, it's about jobs lost due to rigs leaving the Gulf.

    But that's LONG been forgotten because of thread derailments like yours.
