I respect that it's your site and has a subjective private code of some sort.
But I committed none of the above abuses in the use of said word (and find it offesive that you might indicate otherwise), I only quoted TV Guide/Jennifer Tilly on a relevant lighthearted topic.
Help me to understand...
How are we to know which words you consider profane? Is there a list of forbidden words that your censor detects, so I can avoid them in the future? How were they chosen, and is this true in all contexts? Why is DCA Sucks preferable to smartass? Can you email me such a list so I might be a more appropriate contributor?
Yes, its a silly matter, that's whay it's a poor argument to draw a censorship line, which should be done only when necessary, not to flatter those with petty power to exercise.

I engaged in repectful debate. If that is not to be tolerated, revoke away.
