Im just get a answer censored in another forum but AFAIK, f**** is not a bad word.

ps: when i talk about f****, im saying a literal f letter followed by several asterisk, so it is already a censored word.

The letter f with asterisks isn't a word though...

F*** implies a censored word and should be censored. Everyone knows what you mean.

An offensive five-letter word beginning with 'F'. Hmm....

If you censor f*** because everyone knows what it means, then you could end up going on forever censoring the **** that censors f*** because you know that **** means f*** which means the original censored word

But then you would have to censor the **** that means ....... etc etc

cannot censor the censored.

otherwise the censored images of celebrities opps will have to censon all of the image completely, too.

f*** is fine, and the facts that everyone knows what it is, does not imply further censorship.

PS.

Wait a Second! You have 4 stars after the letter F in your example. What the f*** are you talking about????
