They haven't banned anything. If you had read the article you linked to, you'd see that it clearly states the whole thing is tongue-in-cheek, and they want to ban certain phrases that are arguably overused and stupid.

At first, I thought they would want to ban racist words, but this is just ridiculous.

It's obvious that most of you lack basic reading comprehension skills. The whole thing is a joke.

The university actually has banned over 200 words. They want to ban more, and they want to ban it for more than just people in the school, but that's not happening.

Even if they weren't trying to force it onto other people, it's still beyond agitating that these guys think they have any kind of special authority to say that "Spoiler alert" shouldn't be allowed.

Do you watch Fawlty Towers and then get really angry about hotel service? It's a fucking joke, stop trying to cover up your jizzrage


This is a song about cum on hotel walls.

Some words should be banned, not necessarily vulgar or curse words.

The "Do you watch" part was a clue.

If they want to ban anything, they should worry about banning more important things like the existence of bad literature and fanfiction.


Life is a performance, and the world is full of critics. Give it your all like it's your last show.

I was sarcastically telling him that I have absolutely no idea what it is.

Then replace "Fawlty Towers" with any satirical show/movie/whatever that you have seen, and "hotel service" with its subject matter, and the point remains.

Nobody reads the articles ever, and it can't be expected out of anyone.

I'm really disappointed in you man.

SPOILER ALERT

Some future job creators are unable to kick the can down the road any further and have made a bucket list of words/phrases to ban from trending the English language!

So be sure to double down on your use of forbidden words

YOLO

Yes I do. And furthermore, I am appalled that Miami Metro Homicide would let the Bay Harbor Butcher in their CSI team. What kind of world are we coming to???
