GUEST,Andymac When will Mudcat clean up its act? (225* d) RE: When will Mudcat clean up its act? 09 Aug 10


I think it's interesting that the original poster only re-appeared once, and then only to fan the dying embers back to life. I'm on the UK side of the pond but wasn't it an American president who said " I may not agree with what you say, but I will die to defend your right to say it"?

Anyone who wants "swear" words or purported profanity removed is, in my opinion, a prude who doesn't understand the tradition nor appreciate the vernacular and the way in which lnguage evolves.

There are streets in England known as Grape Lane; their origins came from being called Gropecunt Lane. According to Wikipedia, the name was first known from 1561 and it was in regular usage.

So, since I could look up freely on wikipedia, I also looked around a bit but there was no "Sean Mc" complaining that wikipedia should clean up its act..

I couldn't agree more with the comments from Max and Joe.
