You probably have a bad file that it will fix.
Meanwhile, I’m deeply offended by the idea that fuze Owner-GB thinks his or her prudery should rule the world.
If double-you tee eff is that offensive to you, FOGB, I suggest you completely disconnect from the internet. Or stock up on blood-pressure meds because, boy, are you going to need them.
The three-letter abbreviation is widely used online to show confusion and frustration. It does not spell out the Anglo-Saxon term that appears to offend you, and is in no other way obscene or somehow corrupting. That’s what double-entendres and abbreviations are for–something to convey meaning without crossing the line.
Also, the World Trade Foundation and Williamsburg Theater Festival and World Tennis Federation seem to get along just fine.
I am truly appalled that you would set yourself up as the language police on this forum, which is not geared toward children and would bore most of them immediately. The whole world does not have to brought down to a level of discourse appropriate to a sheltered child, and that’s what people like you are eager to do.
We’re adults here. We can blow off a little steam. Your hypersensitivity is your problem and yours alone.
You don’t like Waldo T. Farnsworth, fine. Click that X in the upper right corner or go whine quietly about how the world is going to heck in a handbasket. But don’t go around shushing the rest of us.
Oh, FOGB? Your Doors quote signature? Given your position on public use of language, and the way Jim Morrison was treated during his brief life by the obscenity police, you’re quite the hypocrite, aren’t you?
