Isn't it about time that GR made a decision here about a post that was RR'd about 4 days ago? Is the word in question allowed to be used or not?


Gins Report 27 Jan 2013 18:56


Has this been hanging around since the first time it was RRd?

I dont understand why it was RRd in the first place :-S

Cr#p is not an F word for goodness sake :-(

Reggie does not do RR'ing


Astra Report 27 Jan 2013 19:00

It's totally ridiculous that it was RR'd in the first place and even more so because it hasn't been re-instated!

There should be a 'like' button on here

Many thank's G R,...i am now reunited with my post, :-D :-D...I still do not know whether the word CRAP, is allowed....oh well,and i did hear a NUN utter the it once,apparently quite fluent with it too she the word Crap could have been at one time mentioned in the bible ;-)

Putting “Crap” Back in the Bible
Although many liberal scholars and non-Christians believe the Bible is full of crap,16 there’s actually only one place where the word occurs, though it is often scooped up or covered over by modern English translations.

In Philippians 3:8 Paul tells his readers that all the things of religious value in his former life are regarded to him now as skuvbalon (skubalon), that is, “crap.” While liberals, neo-orthodox, post-liberals, feminists, historians, Methodists, and other heretics may feel obliged to remove “crap” from the Bible by flushing it away with euphemisms such as “rubbish” or “refuse” evangelicals who believe every word is inspired by God (2 Tim 3:16) should refuse to flush. Instead, we should embrace a translation that conveys the rhetorical effect intended by the author, as crass and base as it may seem to our perhaps overly-pious ears (cf. Eccl 7:16).

From this site but I can't find the reference in my bible:

"LIKE" (i couldnt find the like button)

Did you find his death in the end? Ive skipped through the post and cant see it?


mgnv Report 30 Jan 2013 15:49

I thought someone RRed it for the silliness of the implication that being crap at math somehow interfered with Cane's ability to type names in search boxes


Gins Report 30 Jan 2013 16:22


I think what Cane meant, was that he had difficulty in calculating the year of birth from the age/date of death

Either way, it should never have RRd!


cane Report 30 Jan 2013 16:43

Hi......i didnt find any death details for him...but there will be another day,probably when i have done a little more research,and he'll turn up out of the blue(so to speak)....and it was all because my Menopausal brain wasnt working right on the day...thanks peeps <3 <3
