SubjectRe: [PATCH RFC 15/15] net: replace **** with a hug

This is incorrect: The patch doesn't replace '****', but 'fuck' instead.

I fail to see the benefit from doing that. If I wrote: "Hug you you
hugging hug", you would still find it offensive as long as you know what
"hug" is supposed to translate into. And if you don't, you'll soon find
out.

A more constructive approach to replacing "fuck this and that" than
simply applying 's/fuck/whatever/' would be to provide details what
exactly is so bad about this and that. Of course that's not possible
without considerable effort, unlike your approach which doesn't alter
what is written but merely which words are used for it.

Cheers, Phil
