    ttt = to the top, sends a topic back to the top of the list. We will let an occasional swear word slide but really there is no need for anyone to be a potty mouth to express themselves.

    Kidding aside, guys, this is important to a few of us. There are plenty of boards where profanity is allowed, if you need them. Please allow those of us who do not appreciate it to have at least one place to come to.

    p.s.--spelling words with "zz" or "$$" doesn't change anything.
    I'm with ya 100% there bamachile. I love this board, and my grand-daughter reads along with me on occasion. It's great not to have to worry about what she might see (or read OUT LOUD).

    Thanks Mods.

    Re: We do not allow profanity on this message board

    I would like to chime in on this rule. I do not post much, but I do enjoy reading the comments and updates from time to time. At first I didn't like the zero tolerance rule of this site, but as I've become more accustomed to it, I am gad that you guys take such a stance. Personally I cuss like a sailor, have no kids, and think it's great. But the no profanity rule definitely seems to be a factor in keeping this site from degenerating into a flaming, name-calling distraction, which is what many fan sites are and have become. And for that I'm appreciative.

    I don't use profanity here and don't think it should be here, but I find it amusing that ads show up for tequila, e cigarettes, and other things not age appropriate for kids. Don't see any complaints about those

    Believe me we get plenty of complaints about the ads. The ads are generated through an ad service. Complaints through the proper channel usually gets results.

    Ordinary people ,who are not well educated and who lack a large working vocabulary, are limited in their ability to lend force to their statements. In their search for force, they must therefore make use of vulgarisms which serve, through their shock value, but which, through overuse, quickly lose whatever force they have, so that the purpose of the use is defeated. ................

    Funny thing about that...I know a counselor who was dealing with a troubled student, asking him why he used a certain term all of the time. He said it was just the way he talked. When she asked him what he would say if he got mad or angry, he was silent for a second, then he said "I'd say it louder."
