Its all gibberish -- you might as well have written Klingon for all I know. No need to edit your post because I found it rather humerous and probably adequately illustrates the point you wanted to get across.

I am sorry Mr. Ancient Dragon that you got dragged into it. I was joking when I wrote the edit part. I never edit it. It was part of it from the beginning. Sorry very much.

No problem -- I took it as lightly as you wrote it :ooh:

Now we do not claim to be moral guardians, and being a global community we appreciate that what may offend a person from one country or culture might not another. However, what we have ended up with is a system that filters out a set of words that will always be deemed as offensive here. It is exactly the same for everyone, and no personal moderator opinion need enter into the equation.

Lol this reminds me of our see australia add the went over to the UK that offended so many people because of the "so where the bloody hell are ya" line in it. Personally over here Bloody does not offend anyone however in the UK i think it is slightly different.

Just curious i know that you can't tell us the filtered words but is Meekrab or however you spell it in there? Because as was proved in southpark that is after all a curse word.

Over here we do not actually call them curse words at all we usually call them swear words. I find it fits better into the australian language that way.

Meekrab? What do you mean?

You rember the episode night of 1000 shits where they had the counter counting the number of times that they said shit in one episode and the guy at the castle casino shows them a list of curse words and their coresponding stones and one of them is meekrab. And cartman is like "ha i told you meekrab was a curse word".

Not sure if i actually got the spelling of it right but im pretty sure thats how its said.

In the UK we say swearing rather than cursing, and bloody has been considered nothing but the mildest possible form of swearing since about 1920.

The Visit Australia ad thing was a case of the usual suspects, with too much time on their hands so they have to complain about something, kicking up a fuss and a couple of tabloid newspapers short of headlines joining in. The advert itself was not banned, continued to be broadcast, and was enjoyed by most people. I especially liked the young lady who delivered the 'where the bloody hell are you' line...

Upon reflection I have concluded that the secret to an effective insult
lays at combinations. Yes, you read correctly: "combinations".
I shall demostrate. But first, for those with sensitive wording syndrome; caution is advised.
Let's take for example:
@#!%

A four character expression. Ordinary these days, almost, to the point that you could hear it out of the mouth of a first grader at school.
Let's consider now,
$&*%>

A more provocative one, but also very mundane. Join them together with the conjunctive,
<!>

and what do we get?.
@#!%<!>$&*%>

Oh, my..., :icon_redface: I feel a little shameful of myself. I think I have gone too far.

[Edit] This exercise was conducted with insulting purposes only. If a
moderator feels the need to censure it. I certainly will understand.

Good one Aia!
Insulting purposes indeed!

Does 'blimey!' constitute a curse/swear word? If not what does it mean. I think I hear it amongst the british guys.

Only of the lightest possible variety.

As a South East London lad myself I grew up hearing it in full as 'Cor Blimey' which is actually derived from 'God Blind Me' as I understand it.

i got a detention from my chemistry teacher for saying blimey wtf is up with that

There was a south park episode where they sais that they were words that if said enough times, something bad would happen.

Yea, because the were 'curse' words.. There was literally a curse on all mankind if such words were said lol.. People like threw up their intestines and some dragon or something appeared at the end..

One from around the Old Kent Road in SE London (cheapest square on the UK Monopoly board) where I was dragged up as a kid, and which has stuck with me, is gloverduck.

Derived from the cockney 'Gaw'd love a duck' as an expression of surprise.

No. As HG said (and taught me) it's from god blind me, apparently. But it's just an exclamaiton of surprise normally. "Cor Blimey did you see the size of that cat?" [/random]

Lol this reminds me of our see australia add the went over to the UK that offended so many people because of the "so where the bloody hell are ya" line in it. Personally over here Bloody does not offend anyone however in the UK i think it is slightly different.

It's not offensive, per say, though posh sods might sniff at you for it.

gingerpubes? lol.. I don't get it..

neither do I -- must be a Brit thingy.

he probably has red hair.. ginger..

"damn, hell, ass, sh**, b****, and f***".

You missed piss, sod, c**t,crap, bugger. A friend looked at me like :-O because at work i said "she was pissing herself laughing" infront of customers (they've heard worse, shit and f**k are a regulary part of my vocabulary when a mess up).

out of interest, what words are filtered? I previewed this post minus edits and they all showed...

Also they're "swear words" not "curse words" ;)

>Also they're "swear words" not "curse words"
Just a tiny, minor technicality. The intention is the same; ill will to the
recipient. Except if it is toward an inanimate object. In which case is
just a display of frustration.

Yeah i think we sort of got an overblown version of it over here but i know the sorts of people that you mean.

Some fat chick complained about a brilliant ford ad here and got it banned because she though it was degrading to women.

I can not find a copy of the ad on youtube however the ad went something like this.

Man and his wife are in bed reading.

Wife: Honey what would you do you want most in the world

Flashes to him driving a new fancy ute going over rough terrain the usual kind of ad.

Back in the room.

Wife: anything else?

Man: no

Flashes back to the inside of the ute and there is another woman sitting next to him and he puts his fingers over his lips and he goes: shhhh.

The Ute drives off into the sunset.

To most people this would simply be a humorous ad however One woman out of australias population of 20million found this offensive and there was massive amounts of media coverage and crap until finally it got banned. The woman would have been mid 40's poor health single and a doll bludger with too much time on her hands.

Yea, I get that part..

I said those were the basics.. Of course, there is C**t, cl**, do****, co**, pu***, and then you start getting into the combos like f***tard, sh**f*****, lol..

A friend looked at me like :-O because at work i said "she was pissing herself laughing" infront of customers (they've heard worse, shit and f**k are a regulary part of my vocabulary when a mess up).

lol.. who doesn't say that when they screw up or get hurt?

hahaa that is hilarious.. reminds me of Burger King's ice cream lid that some idiot muslim found offensive b/c it looked like Allah or something.. Ended up getting the ice cream banned in the UK or somethn (This was discussed earlier on the forums). Personally, I don't see why such people are able to influence large corporations like that. If I was CEO, I would say, "Well why don't you shut the hell up and get over it?"

It is another British one, and is a shortening of 'sodomize' so can be put alongside that other low quality swear over here of 'bugger off.'

And red hair is "bad" here, red hair normally means red pubes, having that is "bad". Please note the " ". A half friend died his pubes ginger. Whatever floats your boat.
