I haven't censored the word bugger, I don't think it's offensive. Should we?

I don't find it offensive either but depending on the context. Nor did the Duke of Norfolk mind it in his annual cricket game against the tourists at Arundel one year when someone ran him out.

"I think this means I have to bugger off" he was heard to mutter.

I think I would find being buggered rather offensive but being told to bugger off less so.

Further up the social scale, King George V is reputed to have used the word.

I find it mildly amusing that, while a euphemism for anal intercourse is considered acceptable referring to a conservative supporter as T*ryb*y seemed to fall foul of the sweary filter once?
(Although I do have to concede that the latter is fairly offensive - the party that is, if not the actual word)

What about **** ? Or ****ing ******* ?

Think ****** is still on the red list and rightly so. Only a complete ******* **** would type that.
