What Bugs You?

Guest Writer

O.K. I know a lot of people out there luv the girlfriend and boyfriend thing, and I don't know why, but I have nothing against you.

For everyone else, I know you are very annoyed with people going around Whyville saying, "Will someone be my g/f or b/f?" or something like that all the time.

I don't know who invented having girlfriends and boyfriends in Whyville but I'm sure they're sorry they did because it's getting sooo annoying. People will do anything to get a g/f or b/f!

A lot of people start warning people who ask them out in Whyville, or they get other people to, or they just complain. If you're one of those people, stop. There's a better way to deal with the b/f-g/f epidemic.

All you need to do in Whyville is go to "Info and Preferences" or "*Change My Password" on the bus menu and scroll down to the bottom. There's a filter there of words that you don't want to hear.

Type into it what you don't want to hear, which may be people asking to go out with you. The only problem is that if you typed in, "Do you want to go out?" or something like that all the words will be filtered, so just type in something like g/f, b/f, girlfriend, boyfriend or something like that.

I'm just telling you this because I don't think a lot of people know about the filter, and you can use it for anything you want, for any words you don't want to hear.
