    ? Because its fun to mess with people.. ;g

    seriously,
    I don't know maybe because all caps indicates yelling and there is never a good time to yell that, while I guess without the caps could be used in everyday language without it being a senseless attack on a person, or maybe it was supposed to be on the sensor list but was overlooked..until now, though I don't know just guessing.

    Because ass can be used in so many connotations. He got a kick in the ass. He made an ass of himself. It's when you say it derogatoraly that it will get you in trouble. Eric hopes we use our heads and not like school kids just use words to see if we can get away with it. Like sticking the afformentioned word with munch or hole and get yourself in a world of trouble on GT. He trusts us with a few words that are still used in the Bible. Let's not abuse it.;) ;f ;f ;f

    I think you are probably the best mod here. I always enjoy your input into the threads, and you handle problems without being condescending. I just wanted to say thanks, and let you know how important you are to this site.

    I was not trying to get in trouble but I just found it funny that you only run afowl the censor when you try to thwart the censor. Somthing karmic about that.

    And I agree with Jay, you're one of the top flight mods. here Eddie.

    I believe that may have stemed from the fact that even though it is against the rules, many folks were inserting symbols in words in order to bypass the filter. You are right though, that would only make sense if the word was filtered in the first place. Probably an oversight. :)
