Default ««Make the "C" word ****'d!»»

Hi, I have noticed that when I post on threads and read other posts above mine, that the word "crap" is not ****'d. If d0rk is ****'d, then I believe "crap" should be too. In some households out there (including the one I live in), some kids as young as 7 or 8 may not be able to use that language around others. I think it is an innapropriate word. Even the word "craps" refers to a game of gambling. My parents do not allow me to use or say that word and I don't think it would be well-suited to continue to let people post that word that a seven or eight year old could be reading.

Thanks for listening,

MegMeg

Here's why its not *'d, if I remember correctly...
If a member says that - as in, "Oh shoot got to go," but it comes out as ****, it looks a whole lot worse... . But you are correct, it shouldn't be used.

Justin actually said something about this...
Quote:
There's a specific reason... That word is used a great deal more than **** is.. And in ways that it could be taken for much worse with people who don't know it is censored... We used to have it censored, but it did more harm than good. I'll show you why.

Holy crap
or
Holy ****

Unfortunately, the 4-letter word looks MUCH worse when starred out!

I see. I was just thinking about it, because they say how no kissing and stuff, and then we are allowed to say "Crap." Good to know. I kinda was starting to really ponder why I had never heard a discussion about this. But now I have. Thanks to ave and justin, lol.

Honestly, I don't think it's a big deal. I don't think it's a swear, and I know very young kids who say it.

Well it's good that you're concernced. I actually think it would be good if instead of not starring it out at all, maybe changing it to "dirt" or something. IDk.

Thanks for all your opinions, and to Ave for the correct explanation.

It won't get starred out, but it may get deleted.
