    It has to do with erections, another word that's probably banned.

    I like the emails that start Dear MRS Aqua, and then try to flog me it. Perhaps there's somewhere in the world a woman might consider it a thoughtful gift.

    I agree, it is the brand name of a perfectly legal medication not a swear word. Seems odd to ban it.(reply to post 20)

    I am still waiting for the BBC to disconnect me because I have failed to renew my TV licence. They have been very persistent with a whole series of escalatingly dire emails.

    Then on Monday I had the nice Asian lady called Sarah who called from BT to tell me that my internet was about to fail. Managed to keep her on the hook for 20 minutes before she finally twigged it was a wind up and she disconnected.

    Not even with a prescription according to the big sign in my Pharmacist's.

    Lol. More to do with being internet savvy than Puritanism.

    I suspect it is a common word in spammy adverts, so more to automatically avoid spam posts than stop people mentioning it in any other context.

    I see, makes sense I suppose.

    I'm always getting these emails offering me £10 million or whatever. If they were genuine I'd be almost a billionaire by now.

    One of them, which I've had several times, even starts with "Hello Dear" as if the sender and I were close friends or something.

    I had really friendly one from Donald Trump this morning. And you'd think he'd have more to occupy his time, what with building walls, nobbling Nancy, tossing on the crossing, and all.
