Aren't the words "bloody" and "WTF" just ways to circumvent the swear filter? One thing I've learned through the years is that everyone has their own little equivilant to words they oppose. Flock, Frick, Fu(k, F0ck, it all means the same thing. Pretty much anything that is used as a substitute for these words is to me the same thing. It's circumventing the filter, yes. But it should make no difference wether you modify the words themselves, or use other words to imply them. I understand the need for some kind of rules, but they aren't consistant. If these things are discouraged, then discourage them all.

While I see the need for such filters, I still maintain that there shouldn't be a need for them. The word that F'in is derived from is no different in meaning than the word bloody. They mean the same thing, so there's no reason that one should be discouraged and not the other. But that's just my opinion based upon a perfect society.
Don't hate me because I'm powerful.
