    Hi SC... quick question for you or anyone who may know this answer.

    What does the word bast*rd get censored and the word fucking does not?

    I was ranting and thought it was strange.

    because the word 'fucking' doesn't offend unmarried parents but the other one can (and has in the past). As this is a forum for adults we can't ban all vulgarities (no more than you can in real life), instead we sensor words based on offence potential.

    Having said that as this is a public forum we do keep an eye on posts that have excessive amounts of swearing.
