    Excellent idea Sandra! Let the original poster come back and clarify this so we don't argue amongst ourselves.

    BTW, Watch Dog(s) in this sense is a person or persons given the task of watching over a particular body, like the government or maybe a company. Just imagine a dog watching over a scrapyard to make sure all is well and a person or persons doing the same to the government on behalf of you the people.

    Actually, "watch dog" is a phrase commonly used in such instances. In the U.S we have "watch dog" agencies such as the Federal Trade Commission and the Food and Dr*g Administration which oversee the activities of businesses and organizations involved in matters that affect public interests.

    P.S. I wonder why **** (d-r-u-g) is a bad word.

    .
    I don't think there is that much to clarify. Logically you can not put "transparency" in the crosshairs (mira).
    So the alternative left is "you watch the government".

    I could explain at length, but I don't want to confuse some of you. I will only write in short entries. People in this thread have already given me "bad reports, and taken some of my good reports away - the little green squares that appear next to your rep power number" No Freedom of Expression Here"

    Ups Kelly!!... the very same thing happened to me... I wonder who doesn't like us to express ourselves...

    What is it that bothers people so much?

    It's certainly a pity...

    There are also government watchdogs www.ombwatch.org/

    "OMB Watch is a nonprofit government watchdog organization located in Washington, DC.
    Our mission is to promote open government, accountability and citizen participation." (ombwatchdog website)

    and other Government: Watchdog Organizations
    http://www.activism.net/government/watchdogs.shtml
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Why is the d-word a bad word, whereas the F-word is used without batting an eyelid? It baffles me!! I, actually, am quite offended when the F-word gets thrown around quite carelessly in the forum.

    I have no idea! I don't even know how does the whole thing work?
    My suggestion is that once you get your little green square nobody should take it away. I am not going to loose sleep over it though! I am not running for "miss congeniality"

    So sorry you lost your good comments. Anyways, I thought this was a "translation site, not a popularity site" However, I would like to give a thousand little red squares to those that translate filthy language. Those words are not allowed in TV stations, why do we get exposed to them here.

    Kelly, whenever a moderator notices a foul language thread ( I noticed a po*rn like post the other day) , which is actually not allowed on this forum, she/he deletes it, like I did the other day. But we are not here full-time, so until we notice....

    In any case, please report to a moderator about these threads. That would be of great help.
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."

    No es una mala palabra son palabras que estan censuradas para controlar el S P A M. Lamentablemente no tenemos otra opción para controlarlo que censurar ciertas palabras.
