NSFW™

The term "not safe for work" and its corresponding initialism "NSFW" has been used for years on the web to indicate something that probably shouldn't be seen and/or heard at the office, or possibly even at home.

Now comes word that social networking site Fark.com has filed a US Trademark registration for the term.

That's the craziest thing since Microsoft® trademarked Windows® (but not windows).

I've never heard of "NSFW", but that might just be because I work from home. I use the term "work" very lightly as I'm a stay-at-home mom. And we even have our own acronym: SAHM.
