Riolio, why are you sticking with this ludicrous puritanical YANKEE swear filter ? It has very little relevance to modern Australia. There are only two words which are forbidden in "polite society" in modern Australia, namely ■■■■ and ■■■■.
We aren't allowed to call certain Essendon footballers by their names because some pusillanimous moralising Yankee control freak has decided they are unfit for use. Having to use asterisks to write Di*k Reynolds and Willie Di*k is an insult to those fine footballers.
Anybody whose girlfriend is named Fan*y is also in trouble, though Mike Hunt's gymnasium in Johnston Street, Fitzroy is still safe. ROFLMHO ?
There was a great thread on BB a few years back, all about how you go about keeping chooks in the backyard. I downloaded a copy of it for further use. It was very good on the question of keeping a co*k among the hens.
We can't call an A S S an A S S either, because some Yankee donkey a couple of centuries ago decided to use that word as a euphemism for "a r s e"; the usage spread like a bushfire, to the extent that the real four-letter word got forgotten by the Yanks and they decided that the euphemism "a s s" was itself a bad word — and now this filter erases it. How do the Septics manage with quoting Hamlet Act 2, Scene 2: "Then came each actor on his as s"? It's ludicrous. Fine if the Yanks want to make fools of themselves, but why do we have to parrot their pissweak proclivities ?
By the way, in Chaucer's Miller's Tale, you'll find the wife Alison sticking her "erse" out the window for her would-be lover to kiss. So at least we have an alternative spelling…
Although the Septics have condemned themselves to perpetual infantility, there is no good reason why we should ape them. Time we grew up. Fug the filter, please.
