Different people find different things offensive.

Quite true. In the United States, for example, you will never hear that word spoken on the Radio or TV in prime time because the U.S. Supreme Court declared it to be profane. Now, if you don't live in the U.S.A., you probably don't care. In fact, if you do live in the U.S.A., you probably don't care. Nevertheless, in the U.S., it is hardly radical thinking to consider any use of that word whatsoever to be obsene.

It would seem that a rather large argument has spawned over a moot point. Those who are in power to do something about this have clearly already made their decision. The only thing everybody else seems to be doing is expressing how "overly annoyed" they are about the original post.

update: Also wanted to metnion that the same U.S. Supreme court case that declared these words profane on TV and Radio is the reason that you will never find that word used on a ".us" domain name.
