He insists that telling people to "fuck off" is just fine in Britain. I suppose he could be living in some strange town, but I think it's much more likely that he's just isolated from reality.
It is as it is in America: perfectly acceptable when out drinking with friends, unacceptable in a civilized discourse with strangers.
It's true that "cunt" doesn't carry the same level of offense in the UK as it does in the States, but I would guess this to be more a taboo induced by American feminist sociopolitical hysteria (why is "dick" less bad?) than a sign of British laxity. It is certainly rude.

No doubt even JzG has realized that he got it completely wrong as usual. An apology to the appropriate party(s) would be nice?)
Why should he apologize, when the Arbitrators won't?
Anyhow, this just leapt out at me from JzG's response.:
"If I think that a user does not understand what they are doing wrong, then I may block them with no expiry time, because the disruption will only cease when a human has reviewed their response and noted that they understand the problem.
I have not commented there, and have no intention of reading it.
By JzG's own logic, he should be blocked indefinitely.
