Because men don't bitch about how offended they are when they see those words.

Testing:

Think I'll start another James Bond DVD marathon this weekend. It should include Octopussy.

Personally, I've got a bit of a problem with this change. I think the PG-13 version of fuck is marginally OK ("Fuck it!", "Fuck yeah"), but I really don't think that the sexual activity version should be allowed ("I want to fuck your sister", "So, last night I was fucking my girlfriend").

Truth be told, unfiltering it has pretty much deemed this entire site as "Not safe for work".

Not a big fan of the change. Thumbs down to the word "Fuck" being allowed on the forum.

I also don't like this change. Seems like a lot of people are using it just because they can, and it enters every thread and basically knocks the whole system down a notch in class. I hope the powers that be reconsider.

Me three. It may be just a temporary thing because it's suddenly been allowed, but the widespread fucktalk has brought down the tone of the Other forum. I know this makes me sound like a prig. But obscenity is the sound of people talking without thinking, and here it makes the forum a poorer place.

testing...

proof

more proof

need more proof

I need more poodle

I need more proof

...end testing

That's pretty funny, but apparently it can be defeated by adding an extra space between the words.

maybe we should let posters say it once in a 24 hour period.

that would make people think twice about whether or not they REALLY want to use up their daily allotment.
