    Consumer Reports October 2013 magazine article on highway fatalities "Crash Course on Safety" reports that 2012 highway/road deaths are estimated to be 34,080. That's 34,000+ men, women, and children that died in vehicle accidents. Yet we blindly [waste] 8 billion dollars yearly on unneeded low quality airport security for a non threat.

    Time to get our priorities in order and spend our limited tax dollars where they are needed and I don't think we need TSA.

    I edited this post to remove the vulgarity. Please do not hedge around the filters -- this applies to everyone. There is zero need to use vulgarity or profanity to express yourself here.

    Will you post an accepted list of words? I don't think I posted any vulgarity.

    You made a substitution for a four-letter word. It really shouldn't take any effort to avoid such speech.

    If I were actually to publish such a list, it would come out like this:

    I used correct words to convey a thought without being vulgar which is why I asked for an acceptable list of words.

    Speaking of urination (and most likely to avoid the four-letter word that is filtered) in that context is vulgar. There are plenty of non-vulgar ways to express the same idea.

    Seriously, guys, either the language gets cleaned up here without constant reminders, or this site ends. Period. I have lots of choices as to where expend my time, skills and funds.

    It's your call on pulling the plug on TUG but I think you have gone way overboard on this issue.
