Today we have removed lots of vulgar words from the English word list. Especially the F-word and several hundreds of combinations of that word. 
Some might feel that the removed words are dictionary words (at least Wiktionary words) and should be included. We agree, but for some searches these words made the site look incredibly bad, and was probably punished in search engines because of these words.

When we redesign our internal search algorithms in the future, we will probably add an option to include vulgar words in the search again.
