What is a "%$#@!"

By jardinier ·
It is a female dog -- described correctly according to the Oxford Dictionary as a "*****" -- after being processed by the automatic censor at a discussion website.

Much more sophisticated than our asterisks, eh?

But can we remember the different combinations of nonsense characters to nonsense words??

Actually this coding system is a dead giveaway

by jardinier In reply to Funny

Look at your keyboard and you will notice that the characters move in a direct progression from right to left starting with %.

As this is the first instance of censoring on this particular discussion board, I will try the various tricks we have learnt here to fool the auto-censor.

I know what you mean. In my divorce discussion, the most accurate decription I could come up with was "Adulterous W H O R E" but for some reason ***** gets smacked up? I can say adulterous all day, or even prostitute, but not *****?

Funny the things they believe in blocking here.

Hey, I want more! (DE for jd, there! ) I appear to be holding my own one woman campaign for more emoticons on this site......

Right now, I want one that has a sound clip with it. One that is a red snarling face, and goes "GGGRRRRR!!"

For the OP of this thread.

Who answered a very urgent question, very quietly ON A WEEKEND, WHEN I'M NOT ONLINE.

Patience is a virtue. No-one could ever accuse me of being virtuous. Revenge is a dish best served cold. Well, Jules, this dish just got stored in the freezer............ !!!

(I will get you for this. Trust me )

I amnot too rude to answer emails.

I have a poorly laptop, with dodgy keyboard. (and have you any idea how many times I use the letter "y"??) so I only just got your email this morning.

Ergo, I will be composing a reply this afternoon.

Which basically says - dinner? well, it went.

off to meeting.

this afternoon?

by jdclyde In reply to Ahem!

But morning in real time CONVERTS to your afternoon! ;\

Sorry the dinner wasn't a "dancing in the streets" festive occasion. One can always hope!

Hop in that boat of yours and come on over and I will give you a good dinner. I have this hot babe in the UK that has been giving me great recipes and advice, so I am sure it would not "just went"!

(off to a meating? oh my.... )

Is it my eyes or do I really need to get my glasses cleaned up

This discussion has been taken out of the new discussions. After Underage, the TR guys sure have started working fast ...

Discussions on trivial matters take off much more quickly than serious ones.

Now if George Bush turned Democrat; the Pope got married; and World War III started all on the same day, quite likely the "*****" would still have gotten away faster from the starting line.
