View Full Version : Censored words

Since the get-go, TAT has had a liberal policy on what words will be censored in posts. Right now there are only 4 words that are automatically censored. All but one are replaced completely with asterisks.

3 of these words will remain censored (I'd list them here, but all you'd see is ******, ***, and ****** :P ) and the other is the "F" word, which, although censored, leaves no doubt what the author said.

I like this policy. I trust self-censorship. But I don't know everything about everything.

Thoughts?

Fowl language is just a weak mind attempting to express itself in a strong way.

and I attended Catholic schools where, let's just say the nuns had rulers in hand for any slip ups. So we had to be creative, especially on the tennis court where you could be yanked for one word ... "son of a business man", instead of "son of a bitch" etc ...

I think the F word is the best word in any and all languages. It means so much.

Sounds good too. :P

Yeah, the audio version has been a favorite of mine for years, and it turns out someone has set it to film.

And I just found your blog (kudos on screwing the whole anonymity thing and using your real name), and read your bio. I'm very impressed, and thinking maybe I'm less accomplished to be arguing you on Liza Minelli's performance in Cabaret (still, the musical is amazing, if you look past her). I'm also a big fan of the Harvard-Radcliffe Callbacks :)

No way. A fan of the Callbacks? How so? Are/were you one of them?

No. I visited Harvard when applying to college. And I was staying the night with a girl that was a member of the Callbacks. They were auditioning a new song that night (Lady Marmalade, in particular, Christina Aguilera's part), and she took me to the meeting. They had amazing voices. I had only recently discovered college a-capella at that point, but have stayed a big fan since. I used to have a huge collection, including the Callbacks, but I think it got mostly wiped out when my computer crashed. .

WHAT a small world. The original co-founder Dawn Clark aka Morgan Innis arranged "Lady Marmalade" during her stint as music director. She was in my class. She and I came up with the idea for the Callbacks standing in front of Holden Chapel in the Yard.

I enjoyed the video and also the usage of the word when it is as innocent as that. The usage of the word in this city is raw and violent.

So, it's because of you that I have the words to Lady Marmalade imprinted in my brain...


Touch of her skin feeling silky smooth
Color of cafe au lait
Made the savage beast inside
Roar until he cried
More, more, more
Now he's back home doing nine to five
Living a gray flannel life
But when he turns off to sleep, memories keep
More, more, more....

It seems we are not the only ones with the fondness for the F-word - someone made a documentary about it:

btw - while it was meant to be a thread about TAT policy, I think my and oplo's video posts and this link put it in the Dumpster category.
