Asking for a retroactive pardon for something that wasn't even an official warning to begin with is the ultimate in whining and deserves some sort of sanction on that basis alone.

Well, ain't this some shit!

I am so hoping that the quality of scathing put downs in carefully crafted language will not suffer.

Now I have to go craft a whole set of new ways of being an insufferable, condescending . . . well, you get my drift.

Keep in mind, this only applies to the "bad word" list. Rules against hate speech remain in full effect, as do all other Pit rules.

Now go forth and be filthy.

Swearing and rude language is fine. Use of multicolored text, however, will earn you a metaphorical kick in the tits.

This lifting of the ban coincides with a wave of voices calling for (among other things) increased sensitivity to this type of gender issue. It will be interesting to see how these interact.
If cunt is a gendered insult then so is prick. The truth is of course that both insults moved beyond gender long ago and it's pointless to try to reintroduce it again.

Prick has a legitimate usage, like in "prick with a needle." The other word is never used as anything but an insult or sexual slang.
