What's that all about? :confused:

Children across Britain use the F word and C word in playgrounds every day but I'm auto-censored for using a non swear word on an essentially adult forum :confused:

Every forum except The Paddock Club is publicly accessible by everybody of any age.it is only fitting that the language be censored.

Swear words, possibly (though kids hear & see them everywhere nowadays), but why something like s.c.u.m? I've heard it on everything from Blue Peter to Neighbours and Playschool, it's a commonly used word with numerous definitions. Will it not look a little silly if, for example, someone posts an interview here which refers to **** on a visor or tyre?

Sorry, don't mean to moan, but it just seems to me like an extremely poorly thought through example of political correctness gone mad.
