    My beloved home is censored on this forum!

    You make me cry! Xenophobic!

    Best hometown ever.

    I've been to Hell, Grand Cayman ... but never ****ing, Austria.

    I guess it is not illegal to say that word in your town!

    What's the problem with using this location name if it is legit? Is there something inherently wrong with 'that' word? I can see not letting the use of swear words to get out of hand, but this is the guy's home town for christ's sake.

    I'd love to see what a cop does when he ask's someone from there where they're from.

    104 population in 800 years? Place should be called: "Wanking".

    Seriously? It's automatically censored using vBulletin software, which unfortunately lacks the intelligence to determine when words of this nature are being properly used.

    It is weird that there are 104 citizens of that town and one of them is a member of Macrumors.

    what are the odds?

    Assuming the world population is 6,706,993,152, the odds of a MacRumors member being a resident of ****ing, Austria are 1.6 × 10^-8.

    See, that's a pretty large number! :confused:

    :D

    I thought you were an American! Did you move to Austria at some point? Or are you just Austria-ing around with us? :p

    There's a similar problem with Sc*nthorpe, although having that place censored as offensive does seem strangely appropriate.

    The extra tourist money from English speaking tourists has to far offset replacing those fu***** signs.

    And I am sure replacing those signs all the time gives somebody there a fu***** job.

    When I saw Austria, I figured...HEY thats not to far away, I should check it out (and pick up a nice street sign while I'm at it ;) ).

    ...

    It's still 700 kms away. To far for my wee legs. :(

    But seriously, 104 residents and at least one of them is a macrumors member. Thats delicious!

    It probably all started when someone wanted to go to Australia as it was summer down there and winter up in the northern hemisphere, ended up in Austria, and stated they they didn't want to go to "f***ing Austria as they were sick of the winter".

    Given the town is 800 years old and Europeans have only been visiting Australia for around 600 or so and named it much more recently, we can assume there were some very poor navigators back then :)

    There was a family recently who booked a flight and holiday package to Sydney and ended up in Sydney, Nova Scotia... true story.
