Listen up, motherfuckers!

In case you haven't seen it, we've removed the restricted word list from the Pit. You are now officially free drop f-bombs at any target, in whatever configuration you desire.

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.

Thank you, Miller, for shepherding us through this dark period of the Pit's existence.

But I was feeling so safe and protected! What if I'm told to fuck off? HOW do I fuck off? Wait, is this a question for GQ?

Just do the opposite of fucking on, and you'll be fine.

Now fuck off.

You guys realize you've just basically guaranteed endless complaints about "potty mouth" from a certain poster for the rest of your days, right?

I believe the history here is different for "cunt" than for the other banned terms. "Cunt" was not banned as being such a really really really bad word, but rather as a gendered insult which was offensive to women as a group (not just to the specific person being addressed). 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.

Yes, it will.

But mostly in the Pit. So we got that going for us, anyway.

On another note, I'm thinking it might be a good idea (for me) to unsubscribe from this thread. Not sure my company's email filter won't scan for terms like this title.

I saw the ATMB announcement and immediately came here to watch everyone get their fuck on. I was not disappointed.

Too bad this wasn't done a month ago, we could have had a "Happy Father's Day to all you Motherfuckers" thread.

Oh well there's always next year...

FTR, my parents looked like movie stars and any of you would gladly fuck them. Me, not so much.

Clarify, please. Youíre less likely to gladly fuck your parents, or we would all be less likely to gladly fuck you?

Or both of the above?

This is going to have a detrimental effect on the number of times the word "cactus" is mentioned.

Congratulations, Miller, on creating a title that would ensure most Dopers would read it. (Can't say "all" since we do have some for whom potty mouth is forbidden by G*D or something.)

BTW, I am a woman and I don't feel that cunt insults all women, any more than dick insults all men. I think most insults are a bad idea and demonstrate mostly that the user has a limited vocabulary, but I also don't like "banned words". So, this is good news.

I hope people realize what a fine job you did working within the parameters you were given. There were warnings issued when people truly deserved them.

Good work!

I know it's probably very low on the moderators' priority lists but I would like a retroactive pardon for calling F-P a "feckless cunt." And lol at that dooshnozzle leaping to play the gender sensitivity card.
