Re: 3 Days Appropriate
But if we are to have banned words, we need a list;

It is moments like this when I miss George Carlin the most . . .

A list is a bad way to go. I am more for the "you know it when you see it" approach. Intent is what we should be judging these statements by, and I agree that the action was justified. If that word were used as part of a bad joke then I would let it go if I were an admin. If it is used as part of an insult meant to demean others, the person should be banned for a period of time. This approach may lead to inconsistent admin actions, but I would rather have that than strict adherence to a flawed rule.
