What are you thinking right now?
Can't say the C word in the forum? Even without any offensive context?

That word has never been allowed here, so I don't really understand why you would question it now....

Clearly because I didn't know that it wasn't allowed.

Am I the only one who reads the word "America" somewhere and instantly the theme song from Team America World Police starts in my head?
"America....f* yeah!"

The C word is treated differently in most Commonwealth countries (Canada excepted) than it is in the United States. It's still considered offensive, but between friends, it is not necessarily so. It can be neutral, or even positive. One of the differences is that, for whatever reason, we don't use it to refer to a woman, so there's no degradation or sexism involved. It's only used for men. Depending on the qualifying adjective preceding it, it can be fine: "Meet my mate Dave. He's a good c...."

I won't directly link to it out of respect for this forum, but if you want a laugh, google "you can't say c... in Canada".   I think Richard is already doing so.  Big Grin

It's a bit like the word bastard. In Australia at least, and I think also the UK, NZ etc, you can be a tall bastard, short bastard, fat bastard, rich bastard, etc. All friendly. But you never want to be known as "that bastard".

...... As a man, I demand a word for male genitalia that is so utterly disgusting and degrading that it can't be said on a forum either!

I remember I used to think the f****t word meant coward instead of homosexual. I used it once in a forum and got moderated and a warning.

I find the North American term "junk" a bit revolting.  However, I would never seek to ban it.
