Maybe next they will remove the letters so people will
stop writing nasty things. ;)

This is stupid. I can understand people getting upset
if someone uses the swastika symbol to pump some
racist filth, but what about history scholors who
would find great use witht he symbol in writing about
the nazi's and their rise and fall from power. 

Whatever next...
