Holy **** you people!

I used that sentance there as an example. (I placed the stars there purposely, I didn't acually write anything) Now when you read it, a few different words come to mind, most of them not very pleasent.

Holy crap you people!

That there is at least a little better. Sure the word isn't that great, but it's better than it's other four letter alterniteves.

I agree, I don't think that word should be on here. Younger members might also read the word.

Yes, when starred out it however also looks like it could be another word. However I do remember that WI used to have a system which, when words got starred out, randomized the number of stars, making it less predictable.

Just like I tell my students ..... it isn't a bad word JUST not a very respectful one. Shoot or gosh are not as offensive or disrespectful.

I agree that both of those words should stay in the bathroom.

Unfortunately, the 4-letter word looks MUCH worse when starred out!
WOW! What a difference that made. I never thought about that. You know, I've just since tried using other words like gosh, shoot, darn... which are words I commonly use anyway because I'm a professor and I can't curse in a classroom (well, technically I can since it's college but it's still not proper).

I know we're being serious here, but that really made me laugh. I know, I'm showing my 33 year old level of maturity.LOL Anyway, even the young ones here should be able to use their good judgment here and know when a word may sound offencive. If you think it might, just refrain from using it altogether. You don't need WI to tell you what is appropriate or not. We should all be mature enough to understand these things.

Ok so I say crap a lot in real life but I don't type it on here. If you don't want kids to see, don't say crap. If you want to, go ahead.
But on here just don't swear anyways, if you don't think crap is bad go on and say it. But just don't type in the others.

Crap isn't a BAD word, just a not friendly word, as my mom says. I'm not allowed to say it at my house, because of this.

But good thing you pointed this out, runlikethewind, because sometimes the Censored Dictionary doesn't catch these things. You made a good statement too, Arbee.

But Justin made a great statement. It does look like other censored words when starred out. This could lead to more problems.

Even though crap is allowed, you shouldn't say it. Anything you wouldn't say to your, mom, dad, grandma, boss, or teacher, you shouldn't say here.


BTW, what's wrong with P o o p anyway? it means...

P eople
O rder
O ur
P atties!

Don't you guys ever watch Spongebob ? TV is very informational
