    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.

    It's an incredibly offensive word in some cultures. I'd suggest deleting this thread.

    I believe it has connotations with stalking and harassment so it is best you not bring it up. You probably shouldn't have spelled it out as you have, it could trigger ptsd in some people.

    That's an extremely offensive word in some languages!

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

    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?
