Still shut down....
That's right, despite The Mal's previous defense of the f-bomb, some of our friends have children now old enough to be on the interwebnets. So, in the interest of their delicate natures, two frequently used words are now represented by "f***" and "s***" in the posts. Also changed are the words now represented by "a-hole" and "d-head."
The Mal, apparently by oversight, never used the words "c***", "b****", or "c*********", so those are covered. And we are leaving several other words that hard-core blue-noses might find objectionable in place.
As for my many friends who know my affinity for blue language and think that I am selling out language in the interest of appeasing a dead or dying sense of propriety, I say "F*** you, you f***ing a-holes! Who gives a s***?!?"
See, message still clearly received if you already know the words in question. You know I love the teachable moment, d-heads.
