    Fleming was writing in the 50s, of course he would be censored. If he was writing today, he'd be allowed to let those F bombs flame the literary lands below him. Publisher fascists.

    I'm just glad my point about Bond being a moderate swearer has been upheld by the word of God, Mr. Fleming.

    I also find it amusing that a bourbon drinking forum has strict swearing rules, because you can't really predict what folks will get up to when they imbibe a bit too much. Any self respecting drinker would be banned for their word choice in the first week of joining. Seems like playing with fire. ;)

    Well, he wasn't censored when he used words like "Merde", "Enculer", or "Scheissekerl". But maybe the censors didn't understand french. Or german. Funny thing, they seemed to understand russian, though.

    Great shout!

    Despite living Russia for three and half years I have to say I haven't the faintest idea what it means but 'gross obscenity' will do for me! Do we even have any Russian members it might offend?

    Failing that a few classics here (obviously be warned - they actually write the words out in full here!!):

    The very notion of attempting to try and turn Casino and Scarface into family friendly films just shows how freaking absurd this whole process is.

    @TheWizardOfIce, I love watching R rated films that have been censored for TV. It's funny you mention Scorsese, as the funniest I've seen is the edit of The Departed shown on a movie only channel here in the states. They found such hilarious ways to get past all the swear bombs and in a way I prefer the censored cut to the theatrical cut from an entertainment standpoint.

    Pure movie magic:

    Don't worry. Easy mistake to make.
