Lately I've noticed that a lot of people call GB members Bombers. I always thought we were Duders. Both sound pretty stupid, but Bombers is worse.

I've always used Duder, but I don't really care.

I was quoting Tenacious D because I was momentarily 12 again, then I realised the other implications.

So I changed it to an even more dumb post.

Because you can't, that's why.

The staff are bombers.
 
Community members are duders.
 
EDIT: I feel I should note that a bomber is a specific subset of the duder category.  All bombers are duders, but not all duders are bombers.

I vote we can use them interchangeably. People call the crew in their emails shit like Bombadiers and Bomb Crew, and Ryan doesn't complain. Plenty of groups have multiple names.

I always assumed that "bombers" was slang-slang for "bomb crew" which was slang for "the Giant Bomb staff".

You do realize that I was joking when I said you can't, right?

I think using bombers will get the Feds in here to investigate this racket, I'm going to go with duders, sounds original and it gets a red squiggly when I typed it in making it 10x cooler.

You guys are over thinking this. We are Duders to each other but Bombers to those on the outside. Only a true Bomber understands what/who is a Duder.
