Its also used in advertising both a subliminal (see SDA post) and by some firms who thinks its tendy and avant guarde, when in reality its just plain rude.
Clothing chain French Connection UK - "FCUK" and the latest conservation campaign "Flick OFF" - Both adverts claim they are not intentionally doing it, but we all know.
