A woman in Columbus may lose her long-time vanity license plate because the state now says it's obscene. Pat Niple has had a plate with the letters N-W-T-F. She says they're short for 'Northwood Tree Farm,' a Christmas tree business she and her late husband owned. But the 74-year-old recently got a letter from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles saying the personalized plate violates the agency's standards against profanity. 

At a BMV office, Niple says she was told the letters are an abbreviation popular online. She says a clerk whispered it stands for a phrase beginning with, 'Now what the.' Niple plans to appeal. In the meantime, she's got temporary tags.

Should this woman get to keep her NWTF license plates?

I find her last name more obscene than her vanity plates...
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 8/11/06 - 5:28:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
Would they find it less obscene if she used her last name instead?
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 8/11/06 - 5:30:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
Hahahaha, Niple.

15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 8/12/06 - 4:17:15 PM EST (GMT-5)

NWTF is NOT obscene. At her age, she obviously didn't have the plates becuz she KNEW what people now says it means. I say let her keep her vanity plates, even tho it's none of my business.

And yeah, her last name is 'obscene'. She probably pronounces it NY-pull.

15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 9/2/06 - 12:13:12 AM EST (GMT-5)
I've heard of WTF, but NWTF? WTF? Ah well... she should just get her last name put on her plates, what could be offensive about Niple?
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 9/2/06 - 1:09:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
15 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/8/06 - 1:28:38 AM EST (GMT-5)

Keep the license plate. It if didn't make the news, most people wouldn't even notice anyway.

Same here. I've surfed the net for years and I'm on here practically every day (sad yeah).

WTF is definately an internet saying. NWTF with an 'n' I've never heard before.

She should be able to keep her license plates, whatever happened to free speech? And I've never heard of NWTF so I doubt a 74 year-old knows what it means.

Aww crap, this is the second time today I clicked the wrong option. She should definitely be able to keep it.
15 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Friday 3/9/07 - 10:08:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
That's insane, let her keep it.
