If we're going to censor incredibly mild profanity that people use incredibly casually and I've even heard in church before why is a word actually considered offensive not being censored?

This double standard is another reason why no one takes most of the moderation seriously. On DU for example people post uncensored "f**ks" and "s**ts" all the time, but I know saying that word almost always would get a banning except in very rare circumstances (like a quote).

Please don't remind them. They might ban that one too.

Is Dave still aware of this forum's existence?

Serious question.

Do not fight with one another over my banning.  I've enjoyed the time I have spent with all of you, but the time really has come for me to leave.  It is what I want.

You can't send an e-mail?  Not that it'll lead to modship, but quit bugging Nym...

I pray thee forgive me, Lord Modship, but I believed Lord Nym could better influence His Excellency's clemency and obtain the promotion of the jmfcst.

No offense to the jmfcst, but I think Lord Nym will probably worsen your chances at modship. Wink

Which c-word is meant here exactly ?

Cock ? C.U.M. ? Cunt ? Clitoris ? Cunnilingus ?

The third. The second one isn't an abbreviation, BTW.

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

You can either write it "Cum" in the sexual sense or "C.U.M." if you intend to link it to Santorum.

Then, Lord Modship, perhaps this tiny scroll, a mere Dinner Doodle of my atonement, can place the jmfcst back into Lord Nymís unsearchable graces:

There ought to be an automatic censorship of "Allen West" for ChairmanSanchez.
