I identify as a period and find your flaunting of the '?' symbol oppressive and demeaning.
I also hate that John Cleese is in the firing line. Faulty Towers, c'mon?! Can no level of humor transcend being a relic of the time? And I think they were self aware anyway, it's like a nascent South Park, it was funny because it was wrong,
Exactly, Cleese/Booth were making fun of the characters suing the non-PC language.
Remember "Love Thy Neighbour"? That would never get aired now, but Jack Smethurst's character was always the one who came out as the loser in the end.
