    I suspect that many of our Grandmothers went to the same school, dated around the turn of the 1900's, slightly before WW One. Mine (a school teacher, at that) said that there was no need to use cuss words. Polite society doesn't stoop to that level.

    I think I have been a good boy , but if not sweet Wendy will keep me in line .

    Thanks for all that you do . Occasionally someone will throw a post on my dailies that doesn't sit too well with me ,
    but I usually hesitate to say anything because I figure they will 'get with the program' soon enough .
    Now I have a real-time smell tester , with a big stick !

    I remember it was once put as to always write as though your 6 year old child was watching over your shoulder.

    Why not contact the offending member instead of the whole membership?

    We have. And sometimes, everyone needs a reminder.

    I don’t mean to be a prude, but why tolerate foul language in any form. Don’t just pick on the f-bomb but other bad language as well. My precious mother, God rest her soul called it gutter language.

    Again, the idea here is to keep it clean enough that someone's grand daughter would be able to read this forum without the grand parents being worried about what was being said.

    We just don't need foul language to get the point across.

    We, as mods and admins, have pushed this for a while now and for whatever reason certain people are just not listening. This notice is to put it out there for the last time. Break the rules and get suspended.

    If you're in the middle of a post and have to stop and consider if a certain word may be considered as foul, I suggest you find a different word.

    We have the biggest, most expressive and incredibly precise language on the face of the earth. I usually find the clean parts suffice to make my thoughts known.

    What some folks find offensive, some find funny. There's always a middle gray ground.
    You have posted 3 or 4 times in this thread, basically arguing against the rule or that the rule encompasses some sort of grey area. What the heck! Just obey the rules or pay the price! Pretending you don't know where the line is doesn't cut it. As was posted above, if you have to stop and think about whether or not you have crossed the line the best thing to do is self edit and use a different word. As to the silly word game... Orange a fruit or color etc.. I can't think of any words that would get you banned that fit that category. You say you taught school so you must be smart enough to know what is allowed and what isn't. Its not that hard to figure out
