      Over zealous swear filter

      I am a bit upset that a word in my previous post has been censored. It appears that I have used undesirable language, which I am not in the habit of doing. Since when has t-o-s-s, been considered bad language.
      I have now changed the word for another, with a similar meaning.

      My fault - I didn't put the er after it in the swear filter, to exclude it from using it in that context. Toss should now work.

      Who is to say what a swear word to one is a everyday occurrence to another. Area`s of the UK Dialects. This must be where the word Bad language comes from. North East South and West our perception of each others dialect. nowadays Bad language is a swear word or profanity used as an exclamation Expletive or term of abuse Epithet and Vulgar. But in The Penguin Quickway Crossword Dictionary Compiled by Colonel H. W. Hill.
      The word Toss?? is a Pitcher. It is funny what words mean and the way we are taught to perceive them.

      Yes and a pitcher is something you can drink beer out of.
      I take your meaning. It brings to mind Terry Wogan, who unlike some younger presenters never uses crude language, but he continually uses a word which in Scotland is a crude way of saying urinate, or the result of urinating and rhymes with 'wish' I am sure he would never use it's English equivalent which rhymes with 'kiss'.
