TR'S HOT TOPIC: PROFANITY FILTERS SAVE JOBS, KILL FORUMS

Well, the Windows vs. Linux flame war has flared up again, but what's
really cheesing off the TR membership is their inability to use
American obscenities in our forums (thank you, profanity filter). With
all the rampant fears of workplace harassment, I thought you'd be
thanking us. I guess that's just one of the things we should address
during TechRepublic's ongoing self-improvement process.
