It does if you put a B in front and after. Very naughty.

Do we need an angry thread?  I may be wrong but this seems to me where all the ranting comes from.

But, Shirley, the two go hand in hand?
We are an angry race. Currently the Angry thread is far more popular than the Happy thread.....
Happy thread 342 pages
Angry thread 478 pages

Personally I will remove all ill concealed swearing using e.g. asterisks, spacing etc but am fine with the censored symbol as I like to let folks imagine what I was saying to myself should they desire.

My mother "How dare you swear in front of me?"
Me "Sorry - I didn't know it was your turn"

Well thats sorted that one then.

Now who the  :censored: is Shirley?

Probably Alice's sister (nod to Chubby Brown, there)

Jeez, I checked in to see what subjects might be worth looking at this morning and the biggest topic by far is about swearing. Is there really so little else going on in the world of N right now that this hits top spot??

I think most of the angry thread can be put down to a few prolific posters.

But the whole point of the angry thread, surely, is to concentrate ill-tempered posts into one place, where they can be ignored. The oft-enjoined phrase is: if you don't want to be upset by it, don't read it.
