    Saint_of_Killers, I see little need to explain myself to you, seeing as how I don't even know who you are but what the hell. I made my point regarding the rule, I think it's silly. After pages of cracking jokes about it though, it started to look like we were ganging up on Missy, who was only enforcing the rules as they were told to her. So I made it clear that wasn't my intention.

    If you had been here more than two weeks you would know that I have no problem standing up to any admin if I'm right, even to the point of getting banned. But I'm not going to purposly pick on an admin who is honestly trying to do their job. So that's the logic flow for the statements you posted. The money's on the nightstand kid, beat it.

    I apologize if I offended you , Padme bra.
    You're right, I am new here, and maybe I id speak too harshly.
    I certainly had no intention of picking on Missy either.

    But I still think the rule is stupid.

    I don't think so; it's still the word and the intent is still there.

    What about foreign cuss words, like *****,fook, or bollicks(I think they are Irish cuss words). Or what if its spelled sheet, or fuke.
    If we cant, dont ban me, just edit my post and say we cant use them.

    Since this is an international board it's only logical that foreign curse words are no more acceptable than English curse words.

    Bra, I agree with you, except I wouldn't know when I was being cussed out in a foreign language, unless I was familiar with those words, although others may know.

    Backword curses. No.

    ***** or fuke. No. Bannable? Yes.

    I sure this was a serious topic at some point in time but this has got to be one of the funniest threads I have ever read.:D

    Thank you for putting a smile on my face. :)

    Now the profanity debate has spilled over into the Search function thread. I think we can all agree the b-word is not acceptable at these forums, whether used as a noun or a verb?

    All agree? No, especially since other admins said it was ok and most members don't have a problem with it. However, you got da colors and the banning functionality, so if you have a problem with it then you don't need anyone else's approval.

    Bastard is still used to describe low-life, second-class, no class, derogatory. Illegitimate births do not carry that connotation too much in western cultures anymore; I cannot speak for other cultures. Instead of saying that we are bastardizing the English language, we could say it differently and still keep the same understanding.

    Stinrab, apparently, for one. I'm not going to get into an argument about words. DLM's question was rhetorical. Each admin has the right to interpret the rules according to their own viewpoint. So if one admin doesn't like the word then it's a bad word, period.

    I don't see a problem with bastard. If someone is corrupting the language, they're bastardizing it. If you want to talk about King Lear, it's Edmund the Bastard. Bastard might not be the nicest word, but it's legitimate.

    Hmmmmm... Hollywood and Music Industry teaches us cussing is Normal for even a Mature Adult!

    So be it, but I will still cuss Outside of this forum because I don't think cussing is unacceptable in the Real world.

    Cussing is really funny you know!!! I am mature enough to not cuss at everybody I see, but sometimes the art of cussing is a mature thing for mature people.


    Like for instance, in this movie .... well, I suppose I can't say it here because the people here are babysitters!!!!
