    Then why have an autocensor? Seems rather redundant to me.

    I'd say the opposite.
    "effing" is just paraphrasing the f-word, while "dafuq" is an expression of utter surprise/disbelief, and the relevance of said word is only peripherical to the meaning.

    Well, since the auto-censor is not going to stop being a 'thing', we do have to draw the line somewhere.

    So why draw the line here, as opposed to "attempting to circumvent the autocensor" as was the case pre-migration?

    I only joined the staff in the spring, so I'm merely providing you with my perspective.
