    Of course, Fulcrum, because nobody except Texans say "ain't."

People that want to post offensive stuff should consider being self employed or at the very least use a fake name. Though personally, I could care less what people want to say on the internet.
    Yep, but who gets to decide what is offensive

    If you dislike a standard English word like whilst I think you'd get very upset with some of our colloquialisms. I think I'd enjoy your reactions after a few whiskies.

    It is not uncommon or pretentious where I am from.

    In the US they tidied up English by getting rid of a bunch of silent letters and silly words. In England we still have them.

    I knew this would be a killer thread.


    I did read a probably apocryphal story once about a guy that thought "hirsute" meant "therefore" and dictated notes to his secretary with "Hirsute, Miss Jones...."

    I much prefer a strong, solid thick bodied muscley woman. Any man that doesn't, I suspect, enjoys being pegged "in the privacy of their own bedroom."

    Don't get me wrong - skinny little things can be fun, too. But they don't hold my interest.

    Cancel culture is anal gapingly gay and should stop.

    I seem to recall Maturin using whilst more than a little.
