I swear (bad choice of words) that there are now many words that can be said on prime time network TV that you can't use on this board. Isn't that taking things a bit too far? More and more posts have words *'d out when, based on what you can conclude the word to be from cotnext, it's just not "profane". For example, "b1tch", meaning to complain, is not profane.

Not to mention, this is the internet, not TV. Any 12 year old with half a brain can find unlimited pictures of all sorts of deviations with a few mouseclicks. Why do we need to protect them from some not particualrly offensive typed words?

It just makes no sense to me.

It is just your imagination TD.

The 3 amigos have been so burried getting ready for Bimmerfest (event) that
nobody's had time to futz with such trivial issues for a long while... :p

What gets me is I can post this emoticon :flipoff:, but I can't utter this phrase in print form: f**K you.

Interesting since they mean the same thing.
