    Let’s be honest, I can remember a time when “bloody” was completely unacceptable and “Jesus wept” got BBC commentators into trouble. Times change though; t­wat used to be rude, now it just means idiot. Same with bum boy or bum chum which used to be s­exual slurs but now just mean a teachers pet. Bum also means a person who tries to beg something he’s not entitled or qualified for as in some of our players. I’m not talking dictionary definitions here, this is the way the language evolves on the streets. I doubt that folk on the official board get out much. Also one or two people getting offended isn’t sufficient reason to stop the way in which OUR language evolves.

    When I went to Uni in Leeds at the beginning of the 70's most of the students on my course were from the south. I recall being deeply offended by being called a t'wat i.e. a c'unt but for a southerner it was as Griff states. When my mate met his mother-in-law for the first time in St Johns Newfoundland he was greeted with "how you doing you c'unt" - Newfie linkages to Ireland make the word as a friendly endearment. Mind being callled a c'unt in the town of Dildo about 100 km from St Johns might get us Englsih into a fit of giggles

    I once got into trouble because I said that I thought that homo***ually was wrong,I wasn't using abusive language or anything but people was outraged at what I had said and I expected an angry mob coming down my road at anytime,the country has gone ultra sensitive on the subject now so maybe I'm so surprised that piggy got redcarded,how long is the ban for?

    They haven't disclosed the length of the ban. Nor did they give me a warning like they say in their own "rules".

    They just waded in heavy handed as they were (apparently) offended by the word "bum" and then banned me and immediately deleted the direct quotation from the COED because it proved them wrong.

    I suspect the reality of it is they just didn't like me promoting this forum on there and were looking for any old excuse to dish out a ban. And as with their selective editing and deletions on the thread in question, have attempted to make things look worse overall and better for themselves.
