    Actually, if we all behave like adults I can't see anything wrong with the present name: FFS contains no bad language, not even any asterisks! Yes, everyone knows what it means but surely that's the point - it doesn't have to be spelled out in profanity or whatever.
    If everyone stuck to the same system: ie no obviously rude words (asterisks just don't do it) then I can't see a problem

    So if we want to shout profanities we should abbreviate them all in line with FFS i.e.

    TSMFMOTSTIRFHMH. I'm not saying anything obscene but everyone knows what it means.

    The BBC did a report on the severity of different swear words and their ranking by different groups. I would post it here but obviously it contains references to swearing.

    As in: "Don't you open that trapdoor, 'cos there's something down there...". Bother - now I'm going to be humming that all day!

    Problem is that blurs the line and gives the impression that pushing the boundary is OK. The next step is people just using one asterisk in a word... using the word 'muppet' etc.

    If we're making a clean break - we can't even give the vague impression that we condone it.
