    What is a “%$#@!”

    Locked

    by jardinier ·

    It is a female dog — described correctly according to the Oxford Dictionary as a “bitch” — after being processed by the automatic censor at a discussion website.

    Much more sophisticated than our asterisks, eh?

        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 whore gets smacked up? I can say adulterous all day, or even prostitute, but not whore?

          Funny the things they believe in blocking here.

      is MORE EMOTICONS!!!

      Hey, I want more! (DE for jd, there! :x) 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…………:D !!!

      (I will get you for this. Trust me :p )

        if you were a loser like me, with no life to speak of at this time, you would have been on all weekend and known what I knew for DAYS! :p

        (boys gone and country girl is out of the country) 🙁

        Too bad YOU are too rude to answer emails? X-(

        How was dinner?

          I am[b]not[/b] 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.

          Grrr

          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…. :O )

      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 “bitch” would still have gotten away faster from the starting line.
