      except that certain people are allowed to use it, others less so.
      It proves that the word is not what you thought it might be .

      The one hide rate of one comment , 1/168 , doesn't show

      that certain people are allowed to use it, others less so.

      The use of the word doesn't seem to upset people , so your case kind of falls apart .

      And the fact that the person you are talking about for using that word said

      Will you hear my plea to re-instate jbou?
      does that make any sense to you ?
      Why go after the person who publicly asked for jboe's reinstatement for
      I like jbou but to be fair, he was a douchenozzle the other week.

          Every trusted user , of any crowd , can hide rate "douchenozzle" if they wish to .
          In the past year only one trusted user hide rated one comment with "douchenozzle" in it .
          The other 167 times "douchenozzle" was used no trusted user hide rated . The 167 other times "douchenozzle" was used in a comment , the comments got a combined set of recommends in the hundreds .

          I'm a member of the 'in crowd'? If so, I'd disagree.

          I was stalked by another member here for a year! A year of receiving unwanted, (dozens & dozens of) odd emails. Crap like "do you love me?", name calling emails, saying they had googled me in real life, found my wife's obituary and then passing judgement ON MY DEAD WIFE, saying they had read every comment I ever made here...diaries written about me(w/o naming me). I asked for moderation several times, but I never even got a reply from admin. Doesn't sound too 'in crowdy' to me. It wasn't until I called the police to inquire what constitutes cyber-stalking, and the police called my harasser--and the harasser made light of the police being involved that shit got real.

          fwiw, legally, I was not "stalked", I was "cyber-harassed"--a crime.

          The better I know people, the more I like my dog.

      or asshole etc.  The reason you can't use the "c" word isn't because it is a "naughty word" it is because it is falming sexist and misogynistic and after all of the diaries on language and racism that we have had to endure, I am frankly shocked that anyone would even ask why we can't fucking use it.

                      why not show the thoughts / reasons ?

                        is just the stupidest "insult" I think I have ever seen.  If you want to know why it can perceived as sexist....men don't douche.  And douching implies that women are somehow dirty.

                        See what happens when we get into this semantic bullshit?  A fucking fight for 8 or 10 comments.

                        Just dumb all the way around.
