Can we get a George Carlin style list of all the dirty words that are forbidden here that will get automagically changed to *****'s?
I tried to use C_R_A_P in a couple of threads and it always gets censored.
I never considered THAT a "bad word" but I do/will certainly respect any and all rules here.
After all this IS The High Road not the gutter!

No, no list will be printed here. I'm sure you can guess what 95% of the words are.
FWIW, I tend to agree with you on "crap" (how did he do that?!) so I think I'll just delete that one. If I'm overruled and it is added back, I'll understand that also. What isn't a dirty word to some is filthy to others, it's just human nature.

I was only half-serious about a list!
Just wanted to clear up the crap thing.
This is a great board & I appreciate the way you all run things.

They could post the list, but then they'd have to censor it!:D
Dunno if Arts grammaw would be offended by 'crap' or not. Some are some aren't. Best to play it safe if in doubt. Kinda challenging in my mind. How do you get stern in discussion without swearing etc.? Increase your word power / vocabulary. This board can make ones mind sizzle, which is good. Much more thought provoking than say 'Hard Core Talk' is. Buncha juveniles over there.
I can say juvenile in a dispariging way cant I?:D

And after the list of dirty words censored here is published, stay tuned for the meaning of life, the ingredients in Coca-Cola, the reason Nietzsche went insane, how to make a killing in the stock market, &c.

Meaning of life=42

Ahh, but what is the question?
And what have I got in me pockets?:neener:

the reason Nietzsche went insane
Syphillus--infected wound in the Franco-Prussian war. His hatred of women was not a result of his infection, it was the result of him being the only male in a 6 female household. FWIW

Putting crap on the list was my over-reaction...that got cleared up. Overall, I just wish for a civil AND non-vulgar discourse.
BlackJack - Yep, you got most of them, all right. However, you forgot an obvious one - ****. And I can't believe you mispelled the 7th one in your list, it's spelled **** not ****. It was probably just a typo.
