Oh, no! NEVER use the diacritic! Or everybody will immediately understand what alternative you kept in mind! ;D Doesn't sound as rude as the similar English verb, BTW. Rather like 'pee-pee'. A childish word, essentially. And the verb 'to write' is so frequent in... hm... written, that there's really no point in trying to avoid it. - Napisal Bazilius.
