What is funny is that the first names of some actors ended up as ***** in the post by the moderator because the name is also used to represent a part of a man's body!

Yes, much of those bleeped out comments occurred right after the upgrade when the new website's censor was doing its job too well. I think those words are allowed now, or at least some of them.
