some people might consider it to be a bad word, depending on how touchy they are. but i don't, you can send me an e-mail full of that word, and i'd be a little weirded out, but not offended at all.

I guess it depends on how you want to use the word. If you wanna talk about the gardening tool or the Pokemon, then I dont see the problem. But some people do consider it to be bad.

I believe that happened in the Pair up and Romance thread in the list. XD I was wondering why it did that.

Somehow I think the hackers messed with the word filters...words that weren't censored before were and some of the more hardcore curses were uncensored after the incident...that's my best guess anyway.

Mmm, censors got screwed over, and in their hopes of getting them fixed, Steve and Kwesi must've messed up something. =/

When they re-added the censors they didnt put brackets around words like those, and without them anytime those words appear theyre censored. With brackets, only the exact word is censored.

Must we continue questions about censors? They're already answered, ok? The hackers were making fun of us when they censored out Ho*E, ok?

Eck, why do people keep bragging on that it was the hackers who banned "Ho"? It was the administrator's slip ups, everyone!

Hoenn? Ho-oh? Do they come out?

People won't get that there weren't even hackers... it was just an admin with an easy to guess password.
