I have an aversion to any swearing, including "hell". Conservative in my old age I guess.

Ah ok just wondered if I missed a word or something. Hell is an everyday word in the Australian language. There is a big difference between American and Australia English, especially tolerance levels.

But ive had discussions about this in other threads, infact one was with Robert. So sorry for derailing it.

Who is or was Akon? Is he a character on American Idol? If so, no reply is required.

Apparently, the two are not mutually exclusive.

I thought it was something about a misspelled Clay Aiken...

Without wasting too much of my life researching this question, I'd have to answer the topic question with: "He's making a lot of money, and is getting his name spouted in the media for some controversy or other that is only going to allow him to make more money."

In other words: the same thing that's happened to just about any successful celebrity. Meh.

I thought someone mispelled the new game Akkon: Machtkampf der Tempelritter

I figured Akon was a userID who had left BGG in a snit, so I clicked to check out the latest episode in How BGG Turns. Seems we're talking about someone from the "music" industry.
