Anyone has any idea why is word ******** being censored?

Word is:
d o f o l l o w

Nofollow = not censored
******** = censored

Censoring nofollow would make more sense since it doesn't pass juice, from SEO perspective. It's a bad mojo.

That's an extremely offensive word in some languages!

It means "pigglet nibbler" in Swedish for one, not sure about other languages.

Ah, right, I forgot that word was censored.

@t0mmy mentioned his theory on why it's censored here.
I'll point Tim to these suggestions!

Hah I think that may have been blocked back in the old days when idiots where spamming "buy ******** links here" or what ever.. some older members may know. I agree it should be removed from the black list now.

It's apparently been censored since 2011.

It's censored because there was an issue with people adding it into links to try get do follow backlinks. Just put a space between the two words if you're talking about it?
