I'm not sure that "bureaucrat" is the right word.

If I'm shown as having been active here recently it's either because I've been using the gallery, because I've been using the search engine looking up something from way back, or because I've been reading the most excellent UK by-elections thread again.

It isn't, really. But it works in this context.

Anyone who uses certain words, well, this is how I'd deal with them.

Call them into a room. Sit with them. And explain that this word is not acceptable, and is not permitted to be used. Make sure they've heard you.

Then, if you see them use that word again, even in the middle of a sporting match, send out people and forcibly remove him from the field, and never allow him to return.

Problem solved.

That's too bad. The guy at the left would be a better FIFA President.

Quick! Send another World Cup to a "history making" country and the problem (or non-problem?) will be solved!

The entire country is pretty much Republican.
