We aren't filtering a bad word!

The second worst word in English, no less.  The "C blank blank T" word.

The humanity...

Any person that can take the "C" word is a good person in my book.

that particular word is apparently overused in New Zealand.

<drunk story>
I meet a couple American backpackers while on the piss one night, and while we were discussing the finer points of American and kiwi slang, they mentioned that they couldn't believe how often we use the big dirty 'C' word.
</drunk story>

and after thinking about this, I must admit it is true, but we don't always use it in a negative connotation, for example - "hes a real good c**t!"

anyway, thats all I have to say about that...

I don't get what you mean.

is it like c*** or c*** (which isn't really used in the US). I know us americans (myself included) use alot of fowl words, but I'm not aware what you are talking about.

I knew it meant dog or something in a demeaning way (in a really vague way, we don't need to get into a discussion about the definition). but I've never really heard that word bieng used in the US.

IMO it sounds like an old fashioned type insult and there are worse words really.

anyway, I was just unsure what the thread was all about and wasn't aiming it at anybody nor hurt anybody. It's just not often used here and the B word is worse than the C word actually.

anyhow, lets end the discussion of what I did there as I got my answer.

edit: actually, It might be the other word I mentioned, but forget about it.

My apologies oviraptor. I merely was confused over Ladym asking for them not to use "c***" on the forums. Me being fried as much as KFC. mmm.....kfc...

Y'know, I haven't been to KFC for ages. I should go there at some point soon.

Nor is c**k.

But how'd you find out that the word isn't filtererd? Did you want to use it in a post or something?

sorry smjjames but the C word is far worse then the B word. For one you can here the B word in prime time TV all the time, and it will be a long time before the FCC will let the C word go over broadcast air. Just ask any girl you know what word is worse. Well maybe not "any" girl...

I blame my own ignorance there and unfamiliarity with the C word (the one with the 'n' in it? just clarifying for myself without actually saying the word here).

This would be the word with the 3rd letter of the alphabet, then the 21st letter of the alphabet, then the 14th letter of the alphabet, and then the 20th letter of the alphabet, right?

Yes the word that rythems with Punt. It is probably considared by many to be the most offensive of offensive words even more so than everyones favorite word that starts with F.

Rape is censored? Steve, I think you are being a little too sensitive! I mean, it's not like somebody can use it against someone else, like ******* or bitch! i mean, how would you use rape in a bad way?

Censor a word that shouldnt be and I'm gonna rape you! :o :P

Actually I'd rather keep this discussion going.  Although not about one filtered word, about all of them. If a swear word has an actual meaning (female dog, illegitimate child off the top of my head) We should be able to use them. Granted as long as they are used in a non-offensive context. And you can't call the very presence of the word offensive, especially if you can look the word up in a dictionary. ( don't use dictionary.com, I'm surprised how many of these words they have definitions for)

I know someone who breeds dogs. She uses the word bitch very often. Usually not in the offensive way, but talking about her dogs. As long as they don't abuse it and use their words for what they are actually meant for (granted I don't see many conversations about any of these topics popping up-- but who knows) If they do abuse it, report it and delete their post.
