Yep, we even have an emoticon with it.
That word and "arse" date back to the previous forum and we allowed them there so we kept some things status quo. Those two have never been filtered.
The only word that was filtered on the other forum that is not filtered here is "retard." It was filtered there when it became a perjorative directed at Quincy Carter and caused some issues with losing good members. You wouldn't believe the drama that caused.
So far that word has not been abused here. I personally have reasons to hate the word and don't use it, but I look past it when others do. One guy who used it quite a bit even pointed out that I laughed at his use of it one time. I was laughing at him, not the word.
