To pimp or not to pimp.

I'm really curious about what you guys think of the word "pimp" used in a fannish context, as I was amazed to discover recently that many people find it offensive.

I don't find it offensive, btw, and I also think those wanting everyone to stop using it here are fighting a losing battle, but that's not the point of my post.

The point of my post is: a poll!

PIMP.

I hate seeing the word used in a fannish context.
2(2.0%)
I like it and will continue to use it. Nothing else fits.
26(26.5%)
I am ambivalent about it.
14(14.3%)
I don't give a crap either way.
42(42.9%)
I like it, but I will stop using it because I don't want to hurt or offend any of my fellow fangirls.
0(0.0%)
I am not personally attached to the word but I DON'T want people to stop using it.
14(14.3%)
I am not personally attached to the word but I DO want people to stop using it.

Feel free to pimp, plug or pump this poll (or whatever offends you the least).

PS. HOW HOT IS MY NEW MCAVOY MOOD THEME ZOMG.
