    So, the other day I heard someone use the term 'Xenophobia'. I heard this and immediately my mind turned to rom dumps.

    I assumed that it was an actual word, so I looked it up. I saw the definition and preceded to laugh until I couldn't breathe.

    but in my opinion the XPA team is cool

    too bad they no longer or rarely dump the JP games

    i guess they havent seen any GOOD released out there, i bet once the (U) SS/HG is out, they will be one of the first to dump it.

    ROM groups' names tend to reflect what they dump. For example, SuXXoRs dumps all the shitty Imagine games.

    I don't get what's funny about the name.
    Somebody is going to need to explain it to me.

    I believe Xenophobia only really dumps US and maybe Europe games? Well this is off the top of my head. I believe xenophobia means dislike of foreigners? Something like that.

    Well, Xenophobia is always better than Anatidaephobia.
    Google it I'd say.
