Let’s have a nice sanitised, colourless, bland environment to post in, incase we just happen to offend someone, somewhere on this earth.

Fairness for all, I think.

While we’re at it, why not ban the following colorful words that could be mis-construed, as dangermouse put it, as offensive to some sensitive persons:

nigger
spick
chink
nip
gook
wop
jungle bunnie
spear chucker
kike
faggot
dyke
lesbo

Dear Sirs,

A nice list of offensive words is HERE

Yours respectfully,

“In todays javelin event we have 23 spear chuckers vying for the record.”

Hmmmm…

“Nice” list but ‘bastard’, ‘babe’, ‘bimbo’ etc. are not exactly ethnic slurs. Here is one that fits the bill: List of ethnic slurs (Wikipedia)

Locking this ethnic slurs thread - use the other one :slight_smile:
