    Well D@#m, Admins, I can live with it if you can. I guess it all depends on what your "filters" allow and don't allow. H&*l, why even have your rule if we can get around it. Are foul words allowed if they are not used in a foul manner? When I had mine edited in the past, they were similar words and used in OBVIOUS humor situations. Your rule says "No foul language". I do not see any mention regarding exceptions. Thank you


    2. No foul language, keep your post tasteful.
    Remember that this is a community forum. Foul language is not needed or welcome here. The moderators will edit posts and issue warnings when we do notice foul language, so please keep it clean. Also please do not use sp@cial ch*ract%rs to get around the rule: the moderators will remove these and issue warning as well. Keep your post tasteful. Linking to tasteless images, adult material or otherwise unappropriate material is not in the spirit of our community forums.

    T8erman, I'm not sure I understand what the big hoopla is all about. The poster used a couple low level curse words and the website replaced them with '*'. Are you concerned because we didn't publically 'flog' the poster for doing this?

    Are we to inform all users when we issue a warning to someone? Would you like to be copied on all furthur warnings sent to users? This is senseless. Let US take care of moderating the forums and warning users; please continue to enjoy the forums.

    It is not hoopla, it is consistency that I am after. I too, used low level words and they were edited. Personally, since I have used them I obviously don't take much offense to them. I am just curious where the line is/will be drawn with regards to "foul language".

    As always, I think yours is a thankless job. Thank you for doing it! :)
