    Right, I just want to make a little point clear here.

    Why is "Bugger" uncensored, yet "***"@ is? It makes no sense! '***' has a correct (Ahibit old) meaning of being a donkey, yet 'bugger' is the act of anal intercourse.

    I'm not waging war against the filter, don't worry, I was just wondering why this is. Seems a bit funny to me!

    I may disagree strongly with what you have to say, but I will die to defend your right to say it.

    Aye, Shadow's right. Harrison Ford wasn't feeling well, and he said, "Why don't we just shoot the bastard?" The director loved it, and it fit a lot better with the character of Indy, so they used it.

    Yes...something like that. He was really tried and just pulled out his gun and shot the guy, and the director was like: yeah...why not?

    yup...I kinda feel sorry for that guy, he sorta lost his chance.

    heh...but bugger is not widely recognized. It's too 'archaic'.

    Yeah, I had no idea that that word had another meaning. Wow...I wonderful if my grandparents know that? They are always calling people little buggers...

    But it really is an out dated word. How on earth did you find out it was censored

    I remember it because it was the word used to describe the behaviour for which Oscar Wilde was escorted to prison - "buggery."

    Why disqualify the rush? I'm tabled. I'm tabled.

    Being an Englishman, I've always known and used the word. To say "Oh Bugger" is my favored exclemation when something goes wrong etc.

    How on earth can you not use it?
