PostSubject: CENSORING WORDS?   Thu 03 Jun 2010, 9:52 am

I believe SOME words should be censored!

What do you think?


Hope and change voters....do not forget to after you enjoy a  with obama Kool-Aid....sweetened with NutraHope!

Many people (that I know) are alive only because it’s illegal to shoot them.

Ronald Reagen said it best.......The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so.

"You can ignore reality, but not the consequences of ignoring reality." Ayn Rand

The truly educated never graduate !

When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going. The Smart Left a Long Time Ago.

I have always said I don't care what you do or with whom you do it, but don't demand that I think that it is normal or that it is OK!!!!

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity!
how rude

Defining....Abracadabra … cursing censored

NO! I think you should have the common sense to not use some words. But censored! NO!

I apologize for the use of the word that brought about this discussion. I assumed the phrase would have been read in context - in fact if you read the statement I ridicule the use of the word.

There's no need to censor words, I will refrain from offensive posts in the future.

Again, I meant no offense, merely meant to make a point.

The reason for this post is brought about by what I remember of Wate's Sound Off Forum members comments
on the subject of using profane/obscene word in posts. I am not one that can condemn anyone on this subject for that would be like the pot calling the kettle black! Hope that is not a racist comment!

The level of offense generated by a profane/obscene word or phrase depends on region, context, and
audience.

Although most of us have no problem with profanity, there are three concerns about it use.

One - A forum can not control the audience that views it contents. Some content may not be suitable for
a young viewer/audience.

Two – Some adults would not participate in a forum that allows it use.

Three - That word censorship helps the Staff of this forum to respect the Forumotion.com's Terms of services, as the Staff is responsible of the board's content.

A middle of the road stance on this issue would be to censor on a word by word basis being prompted my
member in an attempt to keep members and add new members to the forum.

The fact is...some people do not have the common sense to refrain from vulgarity.

There are those who get so angry when they can't make a point that they start calling people racist or harmful names.

FWIW, this is how I deal with naughty words on my email list.

Warning: There is a couple of naughty words on the FAQ.
Feel free to complain. The complaint address is real.
