    When I first came to the UK, I had no idea that *** was sometimes used as a derogatory term.
    Now that I'm adjusted to life in this country, I have come to (sadly) think of *** as a derogatory term rather than the meaning I was brought up with.

    "Liam and Noel" is an anagram of "tedious songsters"

    I believe you are relying on old intrepretations of Arabic there, Baubs. If you study the works of Netherfield and Robinson (2005) I think that you will find that a more accurate translation would be " The pretty boy with a dog and a damp patch"

    Yours in the search for acedemic truth

    but if you study Cross and Blackwell it translates as "may contain nuts"

    Sadly as does Bauble and Shifter, but they translate as Chardonnay or Olde and Filfthy please.

    Can we have clarification from Gail or Bev on this please. Many of us have never known b int as a derogatory term and even the term b itch is in quite usual language. So why are they, especially b int, censored?
