A post that was just removed from the forum for a foul word.

I detest vulgar language and there is no place for it at SpnishDict.


However the the post that was just removed does not fall into that catagory. The post contained the word "puta" which is foul; but not a curse word. As I stated: Shakespear uses this word in the same context -- would he be censored here?

Daniel you might be right, but there are a lot of kids here. A lot of people use it with malice, and some of the answers given to such questions are unnecessarily dirty.

I agree, but that did not happen with the post under discussion. - Daniel, OCT 3, 2009
My apologies, I am not sure I am following here... "but that did not happen with..." are you saying the word wasn't written under the discussion? I am just trying to sort this out. :) - Jason7R, OCT 3, 2009
Yes the word was in the question of the post. and the discussion. - Daniel, OCT 3, 2009

Daniel, I understand that word uses change from place to place but that word, in my experiences, only has one meaning. If "foul" is what you were looking for I would suggest a number of other words such as: fétido, fétida, asqueroso, asquerosa, sucio, sucia, horrible, falta (as a noun), or ensuciar (make dirty). This is just a thought. Take it for what it is worth. smile

Daniel meant that "puta" is a foul word - not that she was wanting another word for foul. - ian-hill, OCT 3, 2009
