    It may not be offensive to you.

    Yes, some of our younger users may be offended by it, or more so their parents..

    Yet somehow they are not offended by a several hundred post thread on "when did you lose your virginity?"

    I would say decision on what to star out and what not are the sole judgement of the Sitepoint staff. I wouldn't count on on anything to change, if they make an exception for you with this word then someone else will come along to have another word on the 'black list' allowed.

    Oh come on, sex is not a taboo subject. Haven't we grown out of that as a society yet? I don't know about you but we're taught about sex in the UK before puberty even kicks in. Kids know what sex is, how to have sex, and the necessary precautions. It's nothing to be ashamed of, or be embarassed to talk about. People in that thread chose to talk about it..

    Sex is not a swear word. B*st*rd is...
