Re: pilked-down p***e
I'm in favor of the asterisks. I'm not shocked beyond belief, but I find some words HIGHLY offensive and don't want to see them in the titles. I can't help but see them in the titles. I think the title should use the *** and if necessary the word can be spelled out in the post, which I can then avoid. I'm far more okay with the "f-word" than the "n-word" or one that starts with "c."
But as 5jj rightly points out, this is not the thread for it.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
