ATTENTION

While going through the most recent posts this morning, I stumbled upon one with vulgar language posted by Pur Pale in response to one of midnight's posts in the R&S forum.  I want to make it very clear that, at the very least on the boards where I am a moderator, this will not be tolerated.  I will either edit the posts or just delete them completely.  No one here needs to see that sort of foul language.  It is not neccessary and certainly not constructive.

I hope that the other moderators (and Atratus especially) will back me up on this and try and keep foul language off our boards.  We're here to build a sense of community, to share and get to know one another and I don't think any of us want to have to put up with seeing f-bombs littering posts.  Anything you need to say can be said without swearing.  ^__^

I'm (mostly) all for it. I like to keep the signal-to-noise ratio high, and keeping a lid on pointless foul language helps. On the flip side, of course, the Canterbury Tales wouldn't be the same without certain words now considered extremely foul. No word is foul on its own, it is idiom that makes it so. That being said there are certain words that are almost invariably used poorly, so I do have some words filtered so that they automatically get replaced with cartoon (^%&!#$) curses

If you have words you would like on the list, send me a PM and I can add them. Of course this sort of thing is easy to subvert this by doing things like using a "v" in place of a "u" and whatnot.

Puns were a good style of comedy until the muppets showed up and ruined them. Now I forever refer to puns as muppet jokes. Don't get me wrong, I love the muppets. By the way Swoop, if you're gonna accuse me of finger pointing and post padding, go duck yourself! You see, now you've got me doing it. See how contagious puns are? No matter, tomorrow at 1pm I'll lose myself in a Seahawk slaughter of San Francisco.

Now who's padding their post count?  I mean, if all you're going to do is count and point fingers, at least be creative about it.  And besides, if puns were good enough for William Shakespeare (or Old B.S. as we like to call him), than they're good enough for me.

What the rooster is wrong with you? If people don’t want to read the chicken I’m writing, they can skip on to the next goose post.  Holy Pheasant!  It’s like you’re on some kind of duck crusade or something.  Turkey hen mallard drake!

(How’s that for foul language?)

With great love,

Swoop
