I like to say bad words in blog comments.

Ran into this problem quite a while back, and I had a hell of a time figuring it out. I can only have four images in my response? I don't have any images in this post, you fucki-
The "fuck" graphic counts as an image as far as blog comments are considered, which limits me to four "fucks" a blog comment,' meaning I've already broken through the upper limit a couple paragraphs into this post.
I've never seen anyone try to post a large number of images in response to a blog, so could y'all find it in your cold (yet undoubtedly superior and, yeah, strangely arousing) fusion-powered mechano-hearts to remove the limit? Or shall I start substituting "Jesus McTittytittygangbang" for every "Shaq-Fu" after the fourth from now on?

The word is already censored so the "Think of the children!" business rings a little hollow, and it's not like I can't say cocks or cunt or calice d'hostie de tabernacle a billion times a blog comment. That ain't the point.
If I feel a sentence calls for the word "fuck", I'm god damn well gonna put it in there because it belongs in the sentence. If I'm quoting someone who says "fuck", I'm going to quote them saying "fuck". There is a rule against posting an excessive number of images, which isn't necessarily a bad rule, but it has never to my knowledge been used for that purpose, and instead merely regulates the use of the word "fuck" in one tiny segment of the site. No other part of the site gets that treatment, and no other swear, blasphemy, curse, sacre, or obscenity has been touched because this place isn't supposed to have a limit on swearing in any place (save in certain cases for thread titles). Hell, I can say "$$$$er" or "$$$$$$" in a blog comment and still get the word across more than I can say "fuck". So leave the high horse business to the hussars, alright?
I'll keep the suggestion in mind, ROB, though I get the feeling it's legitimately against the rules. Most places don't take too kindly to people working around word filters, but I dunno about here.

This is the place where we go when we want to get breaks changed.
This is where we go to ask for new icons, like the 3DS thread. This is where people went to talk about the creation of the "Mobile Gaming" subforum. Sometimes these threads are ignored, but that's not the point.
As for "why" I feel the need to say "fuck" sometime? Because sometimes, I feel that a specific part of a specific sentence should have the word "fuck" in it. Sometimes it's "hell" or "God damn" or "cunt-sucking". It's the aesthetics of the entire god damn thing. See? That "god damn" in the last sentence. Lower case "g" that time, even, 'cause the sentence just looks and sounds a lot nicer with it in there. But that's an entirely tertiary matter. The important part here is that a well-meaning but unimportant rule is having minor but irritating unforeseen consequences.
