    Profanity on The boards: Allow/Censor?

    Post by Fact on Wed Mar 11, 2009 8:25 pm

    The Title says it all Please Place your Vote

    Do we want to allow some Profane words on our boards?

    one word that will never be allowed is the F Bomb.

    If it passes please make a list of words you would like to see censored, and PM your list to me. (yes, type out the actual words)

    I for one do not think we should have profanity on the boards. To me it isn't about the fact we have minors on the boards, it's about the fact that I think it is trashy and ignorant. I do not see the need for profanity at all.

    cool - can i make a list here? Twisted Evil

    i will write them you can lock them Smile)))))))))))
    joking (sometimes i think that everybody is too serious around here - or me is too sily Neutral

    I agree with bullpid and also think that since we are (i'm sorta feeling a part of the alliance) the civilized alliance everybody should be self-resposible for what they say - you still can say a lot of ... crap... without using F-alike-words anyway Smile)))

    I could not agree more with Bullpid, resorting to profanity just shows the immaturity and ignorance of the poster. Lets please keep it clean. Certainly we don't need a list of banned words, just common sense.

    To write a curse word on a forum would just feel so dirty...I've gotten so used to not ever being allowed to. Keep it clean! F!

    I saw allow, but obviously within reason. for example, in the chatbox today I was joking around with a few guys and I said the evil female dog word. There are appropriate moments, but obviously don't be stupid. I saw most of mine in a joking fashion. I dunno, I'm respectful in all my conduct. I just expect others to do the same naturally. don't legislate when you shouldn't have to.



    Edit: I also feel like if someone does conduct themselves in that manner, they are obviously not someone we want in this alliance or these boards. So the simple solution would be to kick out the flamers. They are a bad representation of PoG and I wouldn't want them in the alliance.

    I also don't feel that profanity is needed on the boards. No matter what you may be thinking there is no reason you can't modify it when you are typing. As the mother of a 10 year old I have become rather good at word modification - such as Horsefeathers instead of BS, although I do slip once in a while.

    I really do not see any need for profanity to be used. It can always be written in forms that can be figured out witout having to be actually written. Just like I have seen in here. The F word or BS. It is easily understood this way and is there is no reason to actually write it out. So I agree with the majority and say it should not be allowed. Keep it the way it is. Even if we are all old enough to know what they are or mean.

    I can't believe this is actually up for a vote. Censorship is a tool of those who are scared to let people think and speak freely.

    If a member posts a message attacking or insulting another member, the presence or absence of certain words should have no bearing on the consequences.

    Similarly, if a post is not a personal attack, it should not matter which words the author chooses to use.

    I'm one of the most foul-mouthed people I know, but I'm used to censoring myself so it's not a big deal.

    I can understand not wanting to offend people or having the appearance of being crass. I still voted to allow it, though!

    profantiy

    Post by ambrosiaa on Sat Mar 14, 2009 9:48 am

    LOL. You've got to be kidding me. While I don't swear excessively, I think certain words bring about the point damn well. Not sure what you peeps are thinking about this one. I agree with Nolan - as long as you aren't aiming profanity at someone, it's okay to use light curse words. Damn right, Skippy! On a whole, I swear very little, so I would just ask people to think before they post. GD is somewhat offensive, because it has religious overtones. But saying something is going to create a shit-storm is just kind of funny to me and it emphasizes when someone really wants to make a point. Besides, I get enough people telling me what I have to do - like having my dog spaded, having cameras at street lights, having cameras take pictures of your license when you speed, not being allowed fagra, etc. Chicago has become the lock down city of the century.

    Personally I'm not much bothered anymore by profanity. I hear lots of stuff at work that would make a sailor blush. That doesn't, however, mean that I approve. I heard a saying once, "Profanity is the feeble attempt of a weak mind to express itself." I like to think that nobody here is weak minded. I have no problem with expressing oneself, but, as mentioned above, we do have minors that view our pages. So let's keep it PG or PG13 at the worst.

    When I think of profanity It's more along the lines of the F bomb, the 7 words you can't say on TV and offensive remarks aimed at another person. An occasional Damn Skippy is alright by me.

    This Poll is now closed. The purpose of this was to see what everyone thought on the subject, not to control people or restrict freedoms. The are only a few words that are not allowed and those will be censored. This does not mean you are allowed to have a free-for-all with swear words. Keep in mind that we do still have minors viewing and using these forums. If you have any questions or concerns please contact myself or Greety.
