See, that makes you a newb. It's been a banned word in like 2007 or something.

Yep. Yep yep.
I have noticed this a lot recently too. And I have been wondering the same as you. Why aren't they getting deleted and the poster banned? Strange but true.
Not to be picky or anything, but I don't see anything about it in the rules. Either the mods are sleeping around now or these are some new times for the BBS.
You get banned for saying the word dummy, so really I must question the same thing.
oh yeah, dummy.
It always has been, baby.

The "BIG ONES"
- Using racist, sexist, homophobic or hateful language.
It's acceptable for anyone else besides me to use it. People can say it and not get away with it all they want, but if I say it once, yeah, I'll be gone for a week.

But banning maggots will prevent so many fully grown flies from flying around my trash bags
I asked Dry-Ice to explicitly explain the use of the word to me, this is what he said:
If you call someone a faggot or use it in an obviously derogatory sense, then yeah you'll probably get banned.
It depends on how it's used, but to be 100% just don't use it at all.
That was a few years ago though. Maybe Mod consensus has changed.
Though I would assume it just hasn't been caught the times you have seen it. Or maybe not, I don't know.
You have to know your name.
One day you'll all miss me.

Nope, I got banned for a week once for saying that facebook is a "website owned by faggots".

That's a bunch of rubbish. I call people faggots all the time and nothing ever happened.
Maybe it depends on the context, honestly I don't see a problem with the word, it's just a word.
I guess it's a bananable offence when you're using it in a derogatory fashion to actually bully a gay person.
That why no one gets banned for saying, "If you don't like X woman, you're a fag." to a straight person, because it's subject to taste in women. It's because it's clearly different from, "Hey, suck my dick you flaming faggot." to an actual gay person.
I used to hate the word fag/faggot...
however, I've come to actually have an appreciation for it.
mostly because it pisses people off :)
