My intention in turning off the bad words censor was never to make profanity more widely exploited. Actually, quite the opposite: My intention was to confront people gaming the system and throw the onus of responsibility for that language back into their own laps.

When and if you choose to curse, please consider your words and choose them deliberately and with great care. Excruciating care, in fact. I'm not singling anyone out, btw--there are several people to whom this applies.

This has been a public service announcement for a more language-aware tomorrow.


best,
M
