    So who do they think they're kidding?

    Why do some people feel that placing an asterisk in the middle of a word beginning with the letter "f" and ending with the letter "k" is disguise enough to make the word socially acceptable? Do they really think most people aren't offended by their crude language and innuendos?

    exactly, which is why censoring the words are so pointless. if we edit out half the word, or even the entire thing, or replace it with a phonetically similar word; we aren't really avoiding what is being said. so why bother censoring? if someone is going to use a word that is considered offensive by some members, hiding it isn't going to change the meaning conveyed. personally i don't take offense to a word, any word, and i think its rather pointless to get angered by it.

    cliffs: don't censor because we all know what you meant anyway, if you can't handle the word get over yourself

    The board censors the words for us.

    And for the OP, does it really bother you that much to read a foul word?

    Personally i don't give a **** what people say and i think that if you come across a few ****ing swears on a message board and it bothers you then your life is a bit too simple.

    Having said that, those people who go around getting cute with with their *'s or spelling words "wrong"...you don't need to break forum rules to get your point across, and you know what? You can still say whatever the **** you want. I can drop as many f bombs as i ****ing please because the ****ing board blocks the ****ing things for me for ****s sake

    Censorship like that is distinctly a US traight. Look anywhere else in the world and nudity, sex, and swearing is a small issue for regular TV. But here in the US, we can watch and endless stream of violence on daytime TV, but sex, swearing and nudity are the real problems. Yes indeed, hap hazardly censoring swearwords so everyone still knows what they are is just peachy. Yes it's complete idiocy, but that's the US culture.

    Ok, guys, you're all in deep sheep now.
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    What bothers me most is when they censor movies. I had the misfortune of getting sucked into Forrest Gump while channel surfing the other night on TBS or one of those other crap channels that censor movies. Instead of **** happens, they came up with " IT Happens" on the bumper sticker. Don't even get me started on trying to watch "The Big Lebowski" on TBS. What a travesty. Who are they kidding? Words are just words. They don't have any power except what we give them. Everyone needs to get their panties unwadded. Swearing is fun!

    Hypocritical is what it is. I know a guy who will say Cheese & Crackers where Jesus Christ would be the commonly used interjection. I mean c'mon... You know it's a substitution, I know its a substitution, just ****in' say Jesus Christ, god damnit!

    What even makes less sense here is I can type ass and I can type hole, but I can't type *******. Oh, and a z z! WTF is up with that I can't type my friends last name A z z atori.

    Senseless!

    Of course its not kidding anybody as the OP says. But it might fool some Internet software filters that censor for profanity, that would otherwise block people from accessing this site from work?
