    What a song and dance about one word, and a shite word at that. Some people must have sad bloody lives if it takes something so ridiculous to annoy them.

      Don't really agree with joan above... there has to be a line on acceptability (e.g. there will be little argument about banning the N word)Ö and the C word is one that will cross the line for many, (including me) so worthy of discussion. Not really sure why... what is it that makes this word more offensive than the T word, for example? But actually I really don't like it and think its use will be off-putting to many potential members of this forum.

      However, I'll abstain on the vote... partly because the minimal censorship on this site does make it special... and partly because my patronage ran out last week and I've not got round to renewing it yet! (I will do, honest! Ö. EDIT... NOW DONE!)

            the N word?

            I'm trying to think of a word beginning with N that describes the same area as ****....

            Nirvana?

                        It's a slippery slope this censorship lark Joan.... Before you know it " gob " will be taboo...

                          You also used to be able to change the colour of one letter to bypass swear filters on vbulletin

                          There are only 2 words that really offend and they have been highlighted so to censor them would mean that those who swear just have to use other words and those that don't like them are protected.
