I'm not speaking for Charles, but I do know that the Forum software comes with an optional, and quite lengthy, list of words that can be used as a matching-screen to help assure profanity-free speech. It's painstaking to manually sift through that list to see if something included is otherwise innocuous.

But I agree with you: this one seems pretty safe. Maybe it should be considered for manual...intervention. ;-)

Did you mean "f l i c k i n g"? _______

That line to the right of it is what happens when I take the spaces out from between those letters.

Same with "f r o l i c k i n g" and _______

Charles, I think it has to do with the "cking."
• Give me Liberty or I'll get up and get it myself.
• I don't carry because of the odds, I carry because of the stakes.
• My dream is to have lived my life so well that future generations of leftists will demand my name be removed from buildings.
