How terribly twee

#1
I recently sent a pm to someone on ARRSE and, on re-reading it, I found that the rather innocuous expression “p*** up” had been changed to “urine up”.

OK, I accept that certain words need to be “translated” but programing the site to change p*** to urine is really wet (no pun intended).

and bollocks seems to come out as "balls"

Whenever I type bourgois, it appears in preview and on the screen as "twee"

Surely someone is taking the piss here?

Anyway it's time to retire for another glass of Croft

For fuck's sake why post this in current affairs ??

It is a bit sad isn't it - especially when clinking on some links can be very very un work-safe.

Anyway, up here its "Pish" anyway...

That's weird, I've got one of those filters in my head, I think "Bugsy" and a sub-title appears marked "********". Now that's twee!
All those lessons for nothing! You need a full-stop after "head", and "subtitle" is one word.

Don't forget, we'll be starting with joined-up writing next week. :D :D :D
