Gene (formed 1993, disbanded 2004) were an English indie/rock quartet who rose to prominence in the mid-90s. They were popularly labelled as a Britpop band and often drew somewhat superficial comparisons to The Smiths, if only because of their slightly Morrissey-esque lead singer, Martin Rossiter. In truth, Gene's music owes more to acts as diverse as The Jam, The Small Faces, The Style Council, and The Clash, to name a few. Gene comprised Matt James (drummer), Kevin Miles (bassist), Steve Mason (guitarist) and Martin Rossiter (singer, keyboards).

That carebear is hiding a huge knife behind his back, I just know it.
Thanks for the wonderful care bear edit! lol

See what I mean?
As a parent, I believe there's s nothing more un-PG than a pink, fluffy, walking, talking, "Daddy I want another one PLEASE!"-inducing salesbear.
May we please have CareBear (tm) botchecks? Do-your-best Bear! Good Luck Bear! Share Bear!
Is that Love-a-lot or Tenderheart Bear? Look at their tummies!

tuck / paw
why don't you simply remove the "tuck" word from the botcheck database; its bound to crop up every now and then, and combined with any other word, it will ignite the most lurid non-PG sentiments unintentionally.
[I don't know how to post the png graphic, but I have saved it on my computer as a naughty non-PG memento from CB2.]
Teen // Jugs
Tug // Vein
Just about anything can be made into a Double Entrendre. ;) It's part of our heritage, Carry On Blending!
BWUHAHAHAHAHA!!! How's this for Divine Providence?
Just got this for a bot check;
Sins // Warn.
(And I've got the pic to prove it!) ;)

Sorry, am I reading right? Remove the word 'tuck'? Meanwhile in every play by play at the end of each fight, people are being skewered, decapitated and crushed?
I'm finding it highly ridiculous that somebody can have a problem with something that 'may' be taken in a lurid way and yet has no problem at all with violence and death.
Personally I find this attitude and the editing of this post highly offensive to my sensibilities and my intelligence. So much so that I'm contemplating whether or not I want to be here. PG is one thing and I have no problem with that. But this....

I agree, Johnny. I don't understand why the botchecks were replaced by care bears. Since botchecks are distributed amongst the public, why are they being censored?
If that's the case, then one should go and tell Jon to remove every single botcheck that could constitute as "dirty", "Non-PG" or "too violent" (or for whatever reason), for all combinations of two words that the above is not accepted. By the time that's done, we'll have almost no words for the botchecks. I don't understand the rationale other than people comprehending the words together in an inappropriate manner.
Talhearn decapitated & On
Talhearn dislimbed & On
Talhearn eviscerated & On
Don't worry Johnny, some of us here are open minded. ;)
Just look at me, I'm an equal opportunities fighter;
Talhearn dislimbed Jesus 
Jesus s Guardian Angel smote Talhearn (6214)
Talhearn decapitated Jesus 
Talhearn decapitated Satan 
Satan s Guardian Angel smote Talhearn (2948)
Talhearn eviscerated Satan 
Good or Evil, I decapitate all comers! ;)

I don't know - I thought that the choice of pink, fuzzy carebear as a replacement was more an attempt at a little brilliantly subtle yet amusing sarcasm, than blatant censorship. I had a little giggle, and moved on.
I'm probably way wrong about that, though.
September 8 2006 10:39 AM EDT
I have to admit, I've been having a bad week this week. My mood is not good at all of late.
I wasn't unaware of the humour present in the addition of the care bears. The unmistakeable smell of kilt permeates the page. But even the mere mention of censorship gets me riled....
I'm going back to my quiet corner for some rest.....
I've seen an ascii for 'carepolice', but it was a cop car. I think an ascii version of a Carebear would be infinitely better! :D
Anyone got mad ascii skillz and wanna try mocking on up? ;)

"The unmistakable smell of kilt"
Now that is brilliantly amusing sarcasm :D
No sarcasm... Just get close to G after he's done a bit of exercise... :(
He's taller than most, leaving you very close to a whiff from the kilt...

Might you say that it would be "Too close for comfort"? Hey! We're back on topic! ;)
September 8 2006 12:07 PM EDT
Easy way around the carebear: Just change your user pic to the bot check you want to show off. *smile* Censorship aborted! (can I say "aborted"?)
September 8 2006 1:26 PM EDT
admins can also change your userpic... if needed :)
(not that i approve of changing a bot check from your userpic though.

Actually, this reminds me of a minor scandal that happened when I was at college. They used an automated system similar to the botcheck generator to create default passwords for user accounts, using the pattern <shortword><digit><shortword>.
As it turns out, it doesn't matter that the process is random and unbiased, the password "<word>2KILL" will offend someone.
Especially when the <word> involved is a three-letter term for someone who is a member of a particular religious and ethnic group that was the target of a brutal, fascist regime in the mid-20th century.
And especially when the student who received said password belongs to that group.
