Foul language
« on: April 10, 2012, 12:21:23 PM »
I've noticed we are getting a little fast and loose with words like and other cussing lately. I personally don't mind it much, and we do have an 18 and over policy to join the forum. But I also know we are capable of getting our point across without using such language.

From day one we've had a rule against it. But then it starts as one slip here, another there, and then it just becomes pervasive. I really did not want to implement the censor feature, but I have for a few choice words because we can't go around manually reading every thread and asking people to tone it back.

So the only way to be fair and impartial about it is to let the computer handle it. It doesn't care who says it, if it's on the censor list, then that ing isn't going to appear on our ing forum. ;)

Besides, when you are watching a TV program with the bleeps, everyone knows what they're saying anyway.

Thanks for this. If one cannot get his/her point across without profanity then IMO his/her point isnt worth getting across

This is genious! Don't know why more forums don't use something like this. A lot have rules against language but don't really do anything about it. This kinda takes the guess work out of it.
On a related note PW, if you need a list of swear words to put into the filter let me know. I know a bunch of them and I've even been know to invent my own at times.

Lol, I've heard some amazing cursing in my day as well! :D

But I think I have most of the really bad ones covered. If others get added, or people begin to circumvent them with symbols and numbers we'll just add them to the list.

And anyhow, I like it for the fact that if someone is really ticked off they can just let 'er rip and the software will take care of it.

There is one in every crowd.  I guess next time I have to describe the sex of my dog I'll be in trouble :D  And I know this little poem about a certain kind of willow that I?m sure will not go over well, too.

All kidding aside.  This is really a cool feature however! bravo!

I think that it actually gets the point across better than the written word.  Who gives a what the s who have to cuss every other word have to say any ing way?  See how good that is?

Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

As long as Red and PW don't get too carried away with The List, though.

A long time ago, in a land far away, I sounded pretty stupid trying to describe the anterior most portion of my rifle, because the damn forum software wouldn't let me say butt stock!

Oh, and not trying to be an  :ahole: , but does it work on smileys?  ;D ;D ;D

I don't take any issue with it.... I moderate a chat with tons of users for a sporting event to remain nameless, it's got a 'granny'  written into the code, it does inflame some folks but it's generally a welcome thing in that community.

Another thing is well, age verification....it's really not a safe thing.  I've also worked on some sites with 'adult' content and trust me it's quite easy to side step such things as credit cards for those that are under age...but it's the world we live in.

I do suggest to keep sharps out of any giveaway though.

My 2 cents worth.
