A lot of British media outlets would write "n*****" or the sort, too. However, the paper I read (The Guardian) has what I think is a good policy: either write a word out in full, or don't use it at all. The paper considers things like "the n-word" and "the f-word" to be cop-outs. (Obviously I'm not on my own LJ here, so chipuni would have every right to delete my comment if desired!)

Nah, I meant only to poke fun at the idea that because you may possibly have offended someone, your entire identity should be deleted.

It's an undeserved fate for either you, or poor Derpy.

Indeed. Basic human rights do not include the right never to be offended.
