Oops just had a post censored and would like to explain.

In the uk we have a food called "****ots", they are seasoned minced pork served in an onion gravy and the most known name is mr brains.

However the name is a homophobic reference in the USA and hence I guess the reason for the censor.

Anyhow they are good for Nissen recovery as they are high in calories and made from minced pork accompanied by gravy easy to chew and swallow.

I type this smiling at how we share the same language but have some phenomenally different meanings on words.

Hi Jonh,
Don't worry about it!  Your posts have always been completely appropriate and always respectful.  Certain words probably censor themselves.  It is really funny about our "shared" language...over the years I've always gotten a chuckle over these diferences!
Have a great day!

Jonh-

As Denise said, don't worry about it. It's an automatic sensor ship thing that is tuned to the US. Sometimes you can use spaces or some type of hyphen to get around it.

Take care,
bill

It happens, we speak the same language but there are different dialects and slang terms. No worries!
