VERY GOOD FO! See, now we're showing some creativity.
Toby, I don't like or agree with censorship. I was watching "Saving Private Ryan" the other night on network television...PUBLIC TV, not cable...or even basic cable. It was on I think ABC. Anyway, I heard the word PHUCK no less than 4 dozen times in the movie. Not to mention several other words. I also noticed that the station wasn't blanking them out or changing them for less abrasive words as I am used to seeing them do. I was wondering why is this....then it dawned on me. It's pretty much to what the Big Smelly one was saying.....The English language is quite creative, and ...well, sometimes those words are used to REALLY get a point across or for effect even or maybe other reasons....but not always just to call names bro. In fact, they seem to me like they are used LESS to call names than to be yourself when you talk.
Take a vote maybe. Make a seperate post. See what the people think. Rule in favor of the majority. I dunno man....but HELL NO...I DO NOT LIKE CENSORSHIP! And as you have clearly stated and others have clearly demonstrated, everyone will know their way around the phucking censorship and still be d.ic.k heads when they want to be and still be able to use the words when they want to. Kind of makes having the censorship pointless doesn't it?
