    I see the new site censors some (but not all!) profane language - even in PTs. Just sayin'...O:)

    @David Shouksmith made me chuckle thinking of Ross sat typing all the bad words that he's knows into the banned word box. If we all type the ones we know into this post, then we could help him with the ones not already censored.:lol:

    Yeah, on Friday DPD upgraded the parcel to 'Next Day' delivery as compensation for their shit service. So now delivery is on Monday. What part of "next day" don't they understand? ](*,)

    Anyway, if it gets there intact on Monday, [-o< I suppose we'll have to call it good (although I'll still have a little whinge to Customer Services on Monday morning)... :lol:

    Hee this is a good one that I missed so far.

    I ended up here after being temped to post something about extreme misuse of apostophes.

    The other which commonly raises my blood pressure is the (non) verb "to gift" and the declensions of it.

    That one is worst when used by people from this side of the pond. On the other side... I don't like it but at least I can make allowances.
    "I was gifted" and it's derivatives are not profane, just horrible. The verb is "To give"

    I give , you give, he gives, we give, they give, you give....a gift.
    I gave, you gave etc
    I was/have been given... is it so hard?

    The old site did as well. Not worth me typing a list of the 8 banned words as they won't appear! Bastards isn't among them?




    Go for it!

    Well, what I found was that if you put 'ing' on the end, it mostly got through. :lol:

    Anyway, the most impressive (if not imaginative) use of profane language I ever heard was a bloke I worked with who was upset because his car had failed the MOT. I asked him what was wrong and he said, "The ******* wipers are ******* ******." - 50% profanity in a sentence takes some doing... :clap: :lol:

    Edit - better make that 9 words, Ross... ;) :lol:

    "Work" is the worst four letter word. With "twelve hour shifts" being the most profane language.

    Surely that should be electrocution?

    Electrification consists of erecting sticks and high voltage string along railway lines.

    Sorry if I used the wrong term. I meant electrifying a kerosene lamp or lantern by drilling holes in it to lay electric cables and install a light bulb. On this side of the channel we call this procedure "Elektrifizierung", which also denotes high voltage strings along railways that you mentioned or the change from gas driven street lighting to electrical lighting in the past.

    Sorry StephanE I think my sense of humour has been lost in translation.

    Electrocution often results in death and in the case of pressure lamps conversion to electricity always results in death for that lamp
