    A couple of times I've tried to type the word "s*n*i*g*g*e*r" (it's a proper word - I'm thinking it may be the British English version of 'snicker' - which, incidentally, is a chocolate bar here) - but it gets removed by the site.

    Is this a blip? It just struck me as a bit odd...Does that happen routinely on internet forums / sites? I've never noticed before, I must admit.

    Am I over-thinking things? Probably - but I'm curious..!

    The n word is banned on here. So any form of it won't work.

    I'm guessing, but chop the S off that word and you probably have your answer. Board software might be set to whack that kinda thing on the head.

    I assumed that would be the reason - but sometimes it's PRECISELY the word I want to use, because 'demonic chuckle' isn't quite right - and, as I say, we only use "snicker" to refer to a choccie bar, (a tasty one, I'll admit ).

    Not to worry - demonic chuckle it is!

    Thanks, gents.

    It's ridiculous but the N word is off limits???

    Because nobody uses those disgusting terms here. But people have used the n word. And "spick" isn't how you spell it anyway.

    Geez man really? Chris is there anything you don't have a fucking problem with?

    Ok...Spic...

    Don't be a pedant Brett...you're better than that.

    I don't have a problem with anything. I've seen the word "cunt" on this site.

    Cunt is a far cry from the n word. I allow kike and I'm Jewish so don't worry about it. Btw most advertising programs search for the use of the n word on sites and ban ads on them. Same with Google. Other foul language doesn't have the same effect.

    How about not using the word "s-n-i-g-g-e-r" since nobody here has ever heard it and would have no idea what the hell it means.


    And the "N" word is a thousand times worse than the "C" word. That one's not even up for debate.

    I have heard the word that Dibbles is questioning about but it just isn't common here....so Dibs, "snicker" is EXACTLY the same meaning as the word you want to use here...a snarky, sarcastic laugh, so feel free to substitute and we'll all get the drift.
