I ride a Bike Friday ****t. I tried typing that into a message reply and it was "bleeped" with asterisks. What? It's the name of the bike, look it up.
Nutz.... (in case it did it on this message, the name of the bike is the p@k1t).

There has been a lot of that seemingly random bleeping of partial words lately. Maybe sunspots

Let's call it what it is. Unnecessary Censorship. Jimmy Kimmel has made millions off it. We should monetize it here as well.

Linberl, can you type the name out like t.h.i.s? I need to know the word to look it up in our censored database.
