      I was thinking if a member here wanted to call someone an "asshole, or a dumbass, jackass" in the rants/debates section... should "a**" or "hole" be asterixed? Should "dumb" or "a**" get censored in the word?

      A somewhat good idea but i doubt anyone here would use such language.

      I certainly wouldn't :angel:

      Well I never got why in the US when they censor asshole, they censor the hole part instead of a**. You'd think a** would be the more offensive word.

      Yes, that's what I'm saying/asking. So which part is more offensive to a personthan the other?

      I'm not sure, apparently hole is offensive as on some channels when they say "butthole" they still censor hole.

      Really? I never noticed that myself. It's unusual for hole to be seen as a bad word so to speak I would have thought, either that or they do not censor in time and it just misses the word they are supposed to censor.

      :giggle: Oh heck it would be "Polo the mint with the *beep*"

      It would ruin the whole advert (see what I did there)

      It might just be an American thing if they censor hole in asshole or butthole. Though it's weird because not every channel does it.

      I don't think the words should be censored, unless it's for some funny thing. Everyone will know and say the words sooner or later.

      That is true, I guess they just do it to avoid backlash from parents who would go mad if they heard their children listening to it on the TV before a certain time.

      The censor part of the word because its a compound word and a** is in the bible so it's not considered offensive. Of course hole shouldn't be either, but because the two together back a completely different word then if you hear just part of it. That's my guess at least. I am confused by it as much as you all.
