I do not post inappropriate messages. Three strikes and I leave this site. One left.
Threats accomplish nothing. Why would you choose to wait for the inevitable? If you find our rules too onerous now, they won't be any less so tomorrow.
By the by, unless you were specifically speaking of a male child born out of wedlock, you were trying to use the word as a metaphor. If that metaphor seems perfectly appropriate to you, lacking any implication of its actual meaning, that's only because the metaphor has become a cliché. Much like other unacceptable words that have their roots in sexuality. Personally, I find this one more distasteful than most because it ostensibly insults a man for something over which he has no control and shouldn't, in any case, ever be an insult. It's the adult version of "Your momma wears combat boots."
For quite a few years, probably six or seven, we had only two words in our language censors, relying instead on the judgment of our Moderators to determine when a word was or wasn't properly used. That sometimes led to a lot of back-of-the-house debates, but it generally worked pretty well. Unfortunately, those debates lengthened and eventually no one was willing to make a decision. If it wasn't caught by the software, many reasoned, then it must be okay. So, we added a whole bunch of words to the software filters (there's a list of them posted in Grok This) and that pretty much solved the problem. Of course, as is always the case, it created new problems. It wasn't always fair and it sometimes forced writers to think beyond the obvious to express themselves. Nonetheless, these are the rules people agree to follow when they join our little community. They're open to discussion, but not open to interpretation. And they're certainly not going to be changed because of threats.
