As a girlie (with boobies, in case ya didn't know) I can't say its a word which bothers me. I find it more playground humor than anything else :laugh

Ferret, I know it winds you up but I'd like to see who thinks it is offensive.

Oh..... Paula, Nina, Lola etc.... your votes don't count :D

Hilarious - the n word is now iamaprats :laugh

oh boobies :D

well like any other word, its the context and aim of the word, if its used to put women down and patronise any opinions then I am not for it, if its used in its proper context (e.g. discussion about breastfeeding or any other anatomical discussion / bra measurement discussion ) then its fine.

Oh Sandy - c'mon it's funny - these lot are such big kids... the thoughts of imagining the odd pair, let alone actually seeing a pair makes turns them into dribbling idiots. Its endearing :laugh in a teenage boy kinda way!!

To explain...

It was initially asked not to be used as any user presumed to be female was asked to get her "N****" out. To try and appear that the board was not inhabited by complete imbeciles it was asked that people did not use the word.

Those that were temporarily banned (only permanent bans today have been alter-egos) today knew the score and decided to push things.

Whether it is offensive to people who post on the board is not the matter, simply that we have asked for the word not to be used. Simply do not want the board to drift into the likes of cc.net etc.

The bans were made with good-humour and I do hope that people have taken them in the spirit with which they were handed out.

So far the only bans of any note have been DP and Churchill. Churchill on a 24 hour ban and DP now on 4 days, originally 2 days but with 2 days added for using multiple IDs to try and prove a point.

With the current financial turmoil I am considering letting DP back on tomorrow as we all need doom in our lives but the fact that he acted like such a child makes me want to ban him for longer.

I have asked the admin to put a word swap in for you-know-what's so hopefully that will be an end of the matter.

I don't find it offensive but I still wouldn't want it appearing on the screen in large letters when I am in an open-plan office.

Are you disrespecting us imbeciles? :tantrum:

I am highly offended by such prejudice against people of imbecilic nature. Why should we be enslaved into behaviour patterns that are alien to us imbeciles?

The UK has signed up to European Charter on Human rights that protect us from being discriminated against for being an imbecile. Those rights also apply on CUK.

WGS - my visits to CUK were severely curtailed earlier in the year when I was stuck at a desk where the people working on that floor came walking directly towards my back (a couple of steps above me until the last few feet, so they had an excellent view over my head of what was on my screen) on their way to the part of the office where the studios, toilets, kitchen and some meeting rooms were. It was like working in Leicester Square (as indeed I was), but with company directors instead of Japanese tourists bearing "Hello Kitty" knapsacks (Security kept them out).

Having one's screen flash up some inappropriate word in large red letters - or, indeed, letters of any hue - when the director responsible for the project you're working on is approaching behind you is not good. IIRC, I actually asked Sockpuppet (the real one) to change his sig at that time, simply because it was far too obtrusive even at a distance.

It's the old people you have to watch. Word is, DP only lost it because the district nurse forgot to give him his tablets before he went to the day centre for his lunch :p

I am as guilty as anyone for asking new girlies to show us their [insert weapon of choice here] but it is all done in fun. This is a fairly robust forum and members need a sense of humour and a thick skin. If they can't stand up to this sort of questioning then they are going to be very offended on a daily basis particularly if they end up arguing with some of our more forthright (and often wrong) members.

I do agree that we do not want this forum to descend into the realms of other boards, but this group seems capable of self policing and willing to take issue with those who would be better off at cc.net.
