Strange word ban?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    I just PMed somebody saying "he is a F r e e m a n of the town..."

    The word gets censored. Look.

    "He is a freeman of the town"

    WTF? Has ARRSE gone PC? Freeperson seems to work.
     
  2. Hmmm.......strange!

    Perhaps names of catalogue companies are banned.






    P.S. What a bizarre PM!
     
  3. And I thought "saltwater" was an odd word to get banned!
     
  4. But you can say cunt.
     
  5. Sometimes!
     
  6. What if I cut and paste what one of the bigger boys said to me this morning on another thread.....

    And may I be the first to congratulate you on being a cunt.
     
  7. Odd. It worked then and it made me cry.
     
  8. what a cunt
     
  9. Freeman.

    Nope. Not censored. I think its your computer. :p
     
  10. Has anybody seen the Black Helicopters today? Mine seems to be off somewhere.......
     
  11. I think you need to co to My Stuff/My Account/My profile information and in the Sig block type in "unlock word checker ABF5-35TR-7865-HK09-178N" (without the quotes). This will allow you to use the word freeman and others.

    Too much hassle. Besides, it will ruin my notion that the CO's are preventing me from using the word for their own Lizard ends.

    They shall not prevail.

    Freeman who love freedom can never die.

    Edited to add oh so you can't say cunt now, saw it the other day on a thread! how odd!?
