Didn’t say I hurt you, it could have been me or Headache, remember? Reading comprehension ftw.
Dude, you're being a bit of a fanny

No offence intended.
When I responded to you, I used a --a wink and a nod. I was not offended, and I'd hate for you to think that we Americans are that easily offended

Nick and BVS, can it. No one wants to read you two going at each other. BVS, please work on resisting the urge to take someone’s comment and make it entirely personal.

A little bit late to the convo. "Fanny" is the most G-Rated word for ass in The States. Does it mean the C-Word? Regardless, I've always thought the word was hilarious.


Ok, does anyone remember the scat porn incident at the @U2 forum some 16 or 17 years ago?

Yeah i know. In NZ fanny is slang for vagina. As is the OTHER WORD (although fanny is not a cuss word).
So I'm thinking, to continue my bent for cussing but to also respect that THE OTHER WORD is genuinely offensive to many, fanny is the best thing that ever happened a kiwilad.

Oh ok. For me, I generally try to avoid any reference to genitals when posting or in "real life". I never call a woman the C-Word. Good lord, that would just be death. But I have called some men the word which might even be worse.

I kind of stick to calling most people assholes. And here on Long Island, NY, USA, Earth, we sure got a lot of 'em.

That's quite funny 😉

Did you know: at Disney in Orlando, workers are not allowed to use the term "fanny pack" as it is seen as offensive to some British guests?

Fanny is Scottish for yes - vagina, as 'willy' is for the penis.

Ah, poor Willie Williams eh....

I know plenty of Englishman who would be offended that you're crediting their childish vulgarity to the north of Hadrian's wall.

This topic was quite a hoot to read. I never really joined atU2 for the over the top moderation, but I did check the forum out quite some times. Shame it's gone. But who knows, might breathe some more life into Interf.

That's MrPryck2U!

The prick is attitude as opposed to genitalia.

Oops, yes, true, therefore I throw myself begging forgiveness at their feet and their fannies.

So I found the (since deleted) announcement from the mods as to why the @U2 forum was shutting down.

Quote:
ATTENTION ALL FORUM MEMBERS:
The forum will be shutting down soon. This may or may not be a permanent closure, but it’s a time-out for now, so everyone can take a step back and remind ourselves why we’re here. The atu2 staffers who moderate the boards do it because we love U2, their art, and the community they’ve built up. However, it's harder and harder to find love on parts of these boards lately, and if we don't take a break, we'll lose too many moderators to keep the boards going.

Some threads on the boards have become really nasty, mainly the U2-focused parts, and the threads where some of you can’t avoid making political commentary on non-U2-hot-topic issues.

We’re also getting substantial feedback from people who would like to participate in the forums but are put off by the tendency to pile on or to make comments that are overblown. If a potential new forum member signs up to talk about U2’s new single and comes across a post comparing “You’re The Best Thing About Me” with his dog being castrated (this post actually happened), that’s likely to deter them from exploring any much further. We value our long-time members, and like that they feel comfortable here and have formed communities. Familiarity can breed contempt though, and too many posters seem to have forgotten about decorum in a shared space. This is NOT an indictment of everyone here. The majority of folks post because they love (or at least like) U2 and want to share opinions and to communicate with like-minded fans. Opinions aren’t always positive, and that’s just part of being human. As moderators, though, we have to deal with a lot of overblown negativity, abrasiveness under the guise of being “clever,” and entitlement that has driven previous members away from the boards in general.

Everyone who signs up agrees to the rules that are VERY clearly stated. First of which is “Don’t be a d**k.” If someone decides they’re not going to follow the rules, they can take responsibility for it. We are not obligated to accommodate their behavior. If the forum comes back online, then we strongly suggest that you read and abide by these rules.

Atu2 sincerely values the community here. But we need to reassess the goals of the forum and hopefully remind both the community members and the mods of why we are here. It’s at the point where the forum either takes a breather or it shuts down entirely. We don’t want the latter, and we doubt most of you do either. So, let’s spend a little while listening to the music, experiencing the art of this band that brought us here, and possibly come back refreshed.

-The Mods
