Bleep! Has Reached 500 Members!

Wow. When I put up the first page of the Bleep! website on August 17, 2009, I had no idea that I would collect members, that I would publish in so many forums, or that Bleep! would become the widespread phenomenon it now is. I want to thank you all for making Bleep! the organization it has become.

I am thrilled to let you all know that Bleep! has now reached 500 members! I cannot thank you all enough for being members of Bleep!, and encouraging your friends to join, too. You guys really don't know how much it means to me. I was recently reading some old emails I had sent to a friend of mine, and I said in one, "I have 81 members - yay!" Wow, has Bleep! come a long way since then!

Bring Bleep! to 1000 members - encourage friends and family to join Bleep!!


  1. Wow! Congrats! I am so happy that Bleep! is spreading far and wide and may it continue to spread to all continents, all over the world!

    May you be blessed with loads of good because of all the amazing work you do to strive to make this world a better - and cleaner place.

  2. Congratulations!

    I'm curious what your opinion is of using the word "effin" instead of, well, you know what it's a substitute for. It appears in the Harry Potter books. I'm not a fan of this. I suppose a parent can answer his kid who wonders what effin means, "it's short for freakin'."

  3. I thought of a question you can ask your readers: What is your opinion of yelling out a curse word in a foreign language, such as merde or drek -- in lieu of the English words?

  4. I think the following site is a great Jewish resource for the topic of clean language:

  5. Thank you all so much!

    To answer your question, Ohel Moed, I totally support using alternatives, like effin - as long as you don't say the actual word, few people will think less of you. Obviously it's not the most ideal path, but I use them all the time. Ditto to words in other languages (lol, my mom says drek all the time).
