In light of the recently imposed "No Open Profanity" rule, I bring you some excerpts from a thread in another Hometown Forum....

Show me where I said, implied, or even hinted that I "want to ban every word that offends someone." You are making ^#$^%$ up, reading things that aren't there, and then ranting about something that exists only in your own mind.



Who made that gosh darn rule, anyways? Maybe Staff can say "$%$#@" and "%^&$^&$", but not us peons? I doubt that's the case.

Might as well add "No conversation in anything but English" since we can't have a little fun and run amok in morse code every once in awhile.

Pasando que dinero ganado duro, ¿hey? ¡Eso es un arma de fuego de hombres a propio! Acabo de conseguir librado de ese "niño híbrido" que le dije alrededor previamente. Negociado le para un Glock 19. El ir a tomarlo en lunes de Bob después del trabajo. Necesitamos conseguir Josh para arriba para algún tequila y conseguir quizá su mente de sus problemas por algunas horas, ¿el ya no piensa?

Remember that shot up gas grill tank in the back of my truck? Yesterday, Josh and I launched it with 8 pounds of home brew tannerite. Never did find it, and the blast blew the manhole cover it was leaning against about 20 feet. Also shredded a kitchen sink with a 20 oz coke bottle full.

You would like "my" range. It's on 50 acres of "Do whatever you want" land. I've set up a 300 yard 22-250 range on it. The redneck bench is one of Pike's discarded high line spools. Just the right height, as long as I don't forget my lawn chair and have to sit on a cooler or a stack of ammo boxes.

Oh, that was supposed to be in barely passable Spanish, wasn't it?

ETA: Congrats on the G19. I picked up a 21 not too long ago. We need to go see which one we can KB first.

It's not really big deal for us adults. Grow up some.

If you must resort to the crude, unintelligent type of language that construction workers use then you need to rethink who you are. I don't always suceed but I do try to watch my language. Just by not using profanity people will see that you are smarter and more cultured than those who feel that coarse language is their only resort. Now, I don't want anyone to take this personally. This is directed towards the world as a whole.

So, can we get a list of the banned words, and a list of ok replacements?

jdlatham,
This was NOT a good post!
You say that a const. worker is less than you are? Come on!
Hipocritical post should be banned
You put all laborers in a class of "no class" really impressive

I really don't care one way or the other about this issue. I can communicate my thoughts just as well with or without the coarse language. U352 does a very good job on our hometown forum and doesn't miss much. As long as this is enforced equally, without exemption, then no problems. I don't think that a person's words always define what's inside of them. Reads Integrity. Actions often DO speak louder than words. And I don't buy in to this construction worker = low class B.S. I'd much rather have a laborer/working person as a friend than one who doesn't know the value of a honest-earned dollar or a true friend.
I have friends on this forum who I enjoy communicating with. They tend to be a little "edgy" with their choice of language, but they're still the kind of people I'm happy to call my friends. In my mind, our society continues to enforce more and more restriction upon our daily lives. It seems no matter what you do or say these days, somebody gets offended, somehow, someway. That's just what happens when opinions are shared publicly. So what's more important? The free flow of communication or somebodys delicate psyche?

This low rent, can't have fun once in awhile cause it's a waste of bandwidth, scumbag electrician says "gosh darn it, I think I'll grow a set, so I can be smarter and more cultured than others".

That's so pathetic, it's laughable.

I don't really mind "foul" language that much but I can understand those that don't like it. I work in construction and hear it constantly. I really do believe it's because their maturity level stops somewhere in the teen yrs. It must be something in the water. It's pretty much universal.

Oh, you weren't talking about me, specifically

Any of you I have met know I curse like a seasick sailor, and if you don't like it, that's your problem. However, this is NOT my house and as a guest here I will certainly abide by its rules. I can hold my tongue (which is saying a lot), in the spirit of good discussion

Well $#i^! Sailor is my native language. I guess I'll have to watch my mouth. I can do it though. I've learned to spend my days asking people to "swish and spit" and telling them "it's OK to swallow that," without giggling.

Only the government can censor. In all other cases you have the right to be heard and the right not to be heard. You dont have the right to be heard using other people's resources.
