Internet & Networking Via TorrentFreak: "Entertainment industry lobby groups often describe file-sharers as thieves who refuse to pay for any type of digital content. But not everyone agrees with this view. Swedish telecom giant Ericsson sees copyright abuse as the underlying cause of the piracy problem. In a brilliant article, Rene Summer, Director of Government and Industry Relations at Ericsson, explains how copyright holders themselves actually breed pirates by clinging to outdated business methods." No faeces, Sherlock.

The word 'faeces' is disgusting. Just say 'shit'.

I would have to completely agree with the above poster. There's nothing wrong with the word "shit," and it can get the point across much more smoothly.

Faeces is actually a better term to use in reporting as it's allowed for day time broadcasting.

That aside I do agree with you that it sounds more grotesque. However the problem with languages is what's repulsive for one person might not be for another. For me, I've heard and used the "s" word a lot, so have become desensitised to it. But others would understandably consider it a "no no" term.

What you need, if you say "no faeces..." is a detective's name beginning with F. It would make sense then.
