Two words that I would like censored.

15 votes

"F*g" and "F*ggot".
I know over in Britain the word is used to mean cigarette. However, here in the USA, the word is pretty much the homosexual equivalent of ni***r. It's a word I often see when we have soon-to-be-banned trolls launching verbal attacks at other users, and it is always used in a hateful fashion. Considering its usage here (and on the internet in general) and the fact that it would hardly inconvenience our British users, I would like these words censored.

While you're at it, you might want to also censor the plural form of all words currently censored.

+1. Should happen.
I agree but also dick & dickhead
& dickface :3 Also, cock should be blocked if it isn't already.
trachy, too, imo.
Well, in the UK, it has the same connotations too when used in the context of an insult. If someone says "*** end" though, it just means a cig butt, or sometimes it means the last, straggling part of something, like "the *** end of youth".
/end cultural context stuff
But yea, it's an unsavoury word.
Oh and also, I forgot to mention that Faggots is a food stuff. :P

Well, I love how you discriminate British users out of Americans :P
"Considering its usage here (and on the internet in general) and the fact that it would hardly inconvenience our British users, I would like these words censored."
I read that over and over again because it just made me burst out laughing xD
Anyway, yeah I agree with this all :3

Yes I see your point. They have been blocked. To be honest nowadays they are quite offensive words in the UK too.

Funny story, the song "Fairytale of New York" (aka the greatest Christmas song ever written) was banned on radio a few years ago because of the word ****** (hopefully that was just censored!). But now they play it again.

I LOVE that song. It's hilarious.
Faggots is still available to be said.
Yes, all plurals of swear words aren't censored yet.
