OMG!!!!!!!!! YOU HAVE MY OLD AVATAR!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry about that mini freakout, but I used the avatar you're using for many, many months.

While I do agree that many would like to use that acronym, I don't think it should be allowed as it contains a bad word, and ACC is a family friendly site for kids of all ages. Plus, many parents trust the site and wouldn't be happy with their kids repeating these words, especially from learning them off the site.

While I agree the acronym has lost its meaning for... that, it's still commonly seen as that and that contains a swear word. As Dilpyckle said, we like to maintain our "family friendly" atmosphere and I believe the Modmins would agree that the acronym is best left in the filter.

my dude, if you're a kid who learns a bad word off the internet (which btw is really stupid to even let a kid on if they're that young), then it's the parent's fault for letting them on the internet lm#o wyd. swearing is part of life, so just remove this acronym and we'll be on our way.

Hi Memester,

I don't believe the Moderators will be removing this acronym from the filter, or any other acronym that contains a swear word, for the reasons that Dilpyckle and wakkitty have stated. While you are correct that swearing is a part of life, not everyone in the world makes the choice to use these words and prefer to avoid them. I'm not going to deny that children can learn swear words as they grow up and mix with others, however the cons for allowing this here outweigh the pros.

I don't see any reason why we shouldn't discourage use of swear words on a website that likes to maintain a family friendly atmosphere. Parents can always block websites they do not wish their children to visit. If they do not block any websites, then yes, that's on their own head. But we have to think that not all parents allow their children free roam of the internet and the aim of this website is to accommodate everyone, including parents who set restrictions for their children. There are many websites out there which do not censor curse words and acronyms which contain such words. ACC is not one of them, and that's the way it's always going to be.

I hope you can understand the reasons for this.

PT me if you need help on ACC! :)

As an alternative you can always say LMBO to mean laughing my butt off.

But in all seriousness there are other words you can use to express yourself that do not involve swearing. This is a family friendly website and it intends on staying that way.

Basically what everyone said.

There are many alternate words for the A-word. At least use them.
Ditto with other milder words for worse words.

I'm gonna go what everyone else said. You can use alternate words for the A-word. Just use the more milder words than the more worse words.
