PostSubject: CENSORING OF WORDS!   Thu 10 Jun 2010, 8:02 am

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! But......

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.
