    Because "fanny" as an offensive definition only exists in your mind, dirty boy.

    Had to look that one up! - I thought a recent pop star had the pleasure of being the current rhyme for that one

    All im going to say is this: Some people have suggested to PM or post something in the message the admins forum. I have posted something in there 2 months ago with many bumps without a reply. I sent a message to john asking if he can help. ZeroHour sent me a message in response to this asking why i want my posts edited i give a reason and no reply, this was weeks ago. I then sent a PM to all admins to chase it up. Not a word of reply....

    So if you do bring it in the open it will be noted i suppose.

    What? That one post was edited and others were missed?

    NOTHING is swept under the carpet -Why would you say that?
    As has been said, we are alll discussing this issue to try and resolve it and have been for a while
    We would like to look at each case on its merits, and decide what to do, but we mods are all different people and look at things differently - as well as having our own jobs to do. We have been castigated in the past for not being consistent, so this is what we are trying to get right.

    As for pointing out that 'jerk' means the same as the infamous 'w' word, actually in the UK it doesn't, quite, as the w word is much stronger.
    But if two words DO mean the same thing and one is on the 'offensive words' list, and one isn't, surely common sense would lead you to use the inoffensive one for the sake of ease?

    Had to google that. Love some of the slang.

    One wonders however, if such a PM/Email would have carried the same title as the forum message does? I doubt it. This thread was started for no other reason than to stir things up, again. Isn't that obvious?
    One wonders why you bother.

    What is there to sweep under the carpet? The thread has no substance, value or purpose. It is based on a personal perception, an incorrect one at that. If this had been about some giant flagrant abuse of power by a mod, or something then sure, a public thread may be appropriate, but a word not being edited by a mod? Absolute nonsense.

    Kinda getting sick of this pathetic bickering to be honest. I think RoF may be the second person I have ever added to my filter list.

    That is a shame. I do not know about any giant flagrant abuse of power by a mod but a google brings up a rather interesting item.
