 084.gif  why am I getting my posts changed? feck is not a swear word,it's a polite word that people say instead of the f word,it's in common use in the UK and Ireland and has been for about 15 years,have you never seen Father Ted???

We need a transparent organization with respect on both parties, these mods have to be a counted for who liaises with who,who holds the majority of the shares and who and when annual reviews are taking place they can have nowhere to hid  :59:

Isn't it more polite to use "shuck" Or is that out of fashion again too?

...the word is obviously a direct substitute for the common anglo-saxon expletive used to describe the act of copulation.

You can disguise a turd - but it is still a turd.

You may think I am old fashioned in this stance, but frankly I don't give a damn...

Interestingly, it always draws a laugh over here. Any of Brian Friel's plays about rural Ireland are hugely popular with actors and audiences in the States, and nothing gets more reaction than the use of  "feckin" as an endless adjective/adverb -- especially when delivered by a member of the fairer sex. I remember posting a video of three well-dressed ladies singing a song called "Flights for 50p" in which it was used extensively, and it got lots of favorable response.

However, I'm always happy for the mods to rule on these sort of matters. I salute smartly and move on.

but that doesn't mean your right thought does it?
does this now mean that each individual mod is going to pull words that they feel are offensive? so one more open minded mod will let a word through that a more PC mod would pull?
this isn't a personal attack but that doesn't make any sense at all,how are us posters going to keep up?

...RSR, just a point, it was not I who changed your posts, in fact I don't know which mod did, I just happen to agree that the word used is a thinly disguised adaptation of the swear word we all know and recognise it to be.

Of course this does not make me, or the mod who changed your posts right, we try to be guardians of this message board, and if there aren't other mods available to discuss matters may take action as we see fit; if being protective of the content of FoF means we are overly keen then it is your personal interpretation as it was of the mod who 'modified' your posts.

My reply above was just a way of showing there are more eloquent ways of expressing yourself.

Regarding adaptations of swear words, it is a question of where we draw the line. Should I throw this open to debate? I'm fecked if I know...
