u know, after all this time you'd think i'd know but i don't... what the heck does "nocando" mean anyway and where did the phrase come from?

It came from the forum language filter, which substitutes words on a black list with '[nocando]'.
If I type bas.tard sword without the period, the result is; [nocando] sword.

nocando = no can do = No, I cannot do that because you have a filthy mouth and you deserve a spanking! (See, talk dirty and you get a spanking! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />)

It took me sometime to understand what it means because every time I want to use a bad word, I by myself put some ##@#. And I was seeing in the others posts that thing and I was thinking what is this? Is it a special word? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" />

After a little time in here I figured <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

Some people do not use symbols for the bad words so the admin. of the forum makes sure that we use polite language to each other <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shhh.gif" alt="" />

I think that this is very nice because there probably kids reading this forum too.

Well done Larians <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/up.gif" alt="" />

Results of this language filter are often hilarious. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/delight.gif" alt="" /> We in Germany have a normal word used in everyday language, which exits in the english language with a totally different meaning - and it's rude there.

u know what alrik, i must admit i'm curious myself... mind pmming that word to me as well? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />


<img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/offtopic.gif" alt="" /> intresting that i read "donotuse" as kindova "slow" pronounciation of donuts... "dohnot'uh's"... <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/silly.gif" alt="" /> however, without the quotation marks i see it as "do not use" <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/silly.gif" alt="" />

I'll try to give you a hint. Translate the english word "fat" into german. One of the possible translations give you a word what have a complite different sense in english. It starts with a "d". <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/evilgrin1.gif" alt="" />
