    No, you can tell that people are too lazy to use proper language when this thread has to be stickied to the top of the forum.

    Get your acts together, folks. I've had to edit and delete far too much over the past couple of days. I'm handing out infraction points and the suspensions will be forthcoming if it continues.

    Don't know if its laziness or just the fact that cussing is so prevalent in everyones everyday life that most people don't even notice it.

    Same thing, IMO.

    Frankly, I bumped this as I (and I'm sure other admin / mods) am growing tired of the hand-holding regarding a long standing policy of this board.

    I'm seriously considering automatic suspensions for further violations of this site policy. It's not new and we grow weary of dealing with the same - avoidable - issues over and over.

    So no, it hasn't been slow at all, to be honest. Quite busy, in fact...

    Re: Profanity on this message board

    I've already handed out one suspension today. This coming week will only be more busy as we get closer to the LSU game and I'm now going on a zero tolerance policy.

    If you like posting on this site, nothing stronger than a "hell" or a "damn" is going to be tolerated. Using acronyms and symbols will be treated the same as if you pulled out an f-bomb.

    I've had it.

    Re: Profanity on this message board

    I will promise to try and not use the word Aubarn or Awebarn in my future posts to limit my vulgar language when posting but it will be hard not to use those two words. If there is a 12 step program out there let me know.

    On another note I agree fully no profanity on this board is good.
    Why did Tennessee choose orange as their team color? You can wear it to the game on Saturday, hunting on Sunday, and picking up trash along the highways the rest of the week.

    Re: Profanity on this message board

    We're having more language issues recently.

    I'm sticking this to remind you that profanity, even implied, acronyms, special characters, etc. is NOT allowed on this message board. Anything beyond a hell or a damn isn't going to be tolerated, even in game threads when you're irritated, mad, buzzed, drunk or whatever excuse you may want to use.

    Re: Profanity on this message board

    I'm rather new here and just noticed this thread. I want to thank you for having a zero tolerence policy on profanity on here. I do swear in my private life (see me in the first half in 2009 and second half last year).

    However, I agree a public message board should have higher standards. I hate boards who claim to ban profanity but allow masked words, symbols and let them be filtered out with asterisks. Then if you complain you are called a prude and told to leave if you don't like it.

    Members do seem to enage in a lot of smack towrds the East Alabama Land Grant Institute, but at least we keep it clean.

    I agree with the person who said most sports boards are like a locker room. I'm glad this place is family friendly and everybody doesn't have a sig of a half naked woman. Nothing against half naked women, but they don't belong on here.

    I just want to thank our gracious admins/mods for enforcing the site rules fairly.

    I'm just generally appreciative of the jobs you guys (and Cat and SD) do.

    not that I really care but why allow "hell" and "damn" and not the others? they're all curse words so just restrict all of them

    Well, can say $%&*#? Just kidding. I love the "no profanity" policy on this site.
