    I honestly don't understand. Why would that be at all uncomfortable, let alone more uncomfortable than digging up an umlaut or something?

    "The confusion argument is the only one that doesn't make at least some sense to me, since it's comically easy to say "f--k" or "f**k."

    I just feel uncomfortable censoring myself like that, so for me it's definitely not comically easy.

    Sorry, I think I may have edited the comment after you read it. Just a heads-up, rephrased/changed some things.

    I don't really follow the logic that it's "untrustworthy." I trust me the most, and I think I'm affected by it, like anyone else. Culture is subtle. People love to think that how they talk or how they think is separate from who they are, and that they can keep all this stuff compartmentalized, but I just don't think that's how people work.

    I've thought about this a lot, for a very long time. And I should note that the standards are much looser than they once were, which I think demonstrates that the rules as they are are based in experience, and not just mindless dogma. If you still disagree, and genuinely believe there's no benefit at all to the forum's culture, then we'll agree to disagree.
