I'd be quite happy if we stopped all swearing and renamed FFS. I can't get into Edugeek at work when I most need it from time to time because it gets blocked by council filters due to exceeding a weighted phrase limit - presumably due to bad language. I know we are all adults, and some folk swear as a matter of course, but this is supposed to be a work-related forum.

I think renaming it is the most popular option. We will get back to people by the end of the week, but we are out of prizes so can't run it as a competition.

My favs so far:
404 - Bad Request
The Stress Ball
Some other suggestions:
Teacher Free Zone!
The Back Office!
Behind the Firewall

How about the Gareth Gates appreciation thread?

I personally think renaming it will be a complete waste of time. What difference will it make ?

Well, its just that the very name of the forum engenders the idea that bad language is acceptable. If it was called "Oh poopey pants!" It wouldn't.

When i joined a year ago, the fact it was called FFS! didn't make me believe it was alright to swear. I saw it as what it was, a place to vent..

I find the title FFS offensive, and i'm embarrassed by it. Always have been. I've always known what the area is there for, that's quite plain.

How about simply "aaagggghhhhhhh!!!"

That's actually rather good! FFS is for having your say, so 'biting' back is rather an appropriate name!

But IMHO FFS is still fine

Can I also suggest having it hidden from guests? atm everyone can see it is there, so the spys have a reason to sign up and look in that forum. Whereas if they didn't even know it was there it would give people who post inflammatory statements a fighting chance of it not being seen before they re-read their post and remove any identifying information.
and going totally OT. When did witch move to Wales?.... and become a mod? I obviously haven't been paying full attention.
