By way of explanation, the W word doesn't have the same connotations or sting in Australia where the poster is from.

I remember being at a Festival in Melbourne some years back when the compere jumped up and did a comedy song called "Half a W.." - I was aghast, but it just didn't register at all with the crowd. When the same compere called a heckler an 'effing Bogan' later in the show, it was met with the sort of disapproval I had expected the W word to elicit.

As someone already pointed out, many years ago it came up on the board and was discussed people accepted the reasons and the name was left. Now the user himself has become particularly uneasy about it and came to us.
