    There is no (automatic) censoring in posts now, no.. but we kind of expect that people will use a bit of this *** when necessary. Otherwise posts may be edited by moderators.

    *Of course sometimes moderators (me) need moderating too. :)

    As my good friend Yosemite Sam once said when he tripped over his moustache..."Rackin', frackin', razzle, snazzle...ooooohhh!!!". I said "Sam, that's not acceptable!". He walked away giving me a strange look. The very next morning my rabbit was dead.

    I do not like sleazy words like BJ...spelled out. This is a family site after all. There are teens who come here. I know that they have heard it all before but,we, the adults should still set an example. A little funning is okay but it can get out of hand purty durn quick.

    Not that what I say should necessarily be, but I think an easy enough rule would be for each member to draw a line at certain words (which I believe are spelled out - sorry, is that a pun? - in the FAQ), and do as Flake advises and "****" those words. If/when a member wishes to post an image or quote which contains certain words, the post should be in a Spoiler with a warning. Certain words shouldn't be allowed even then (see FAQ).

    It was probably me, I'm an S'ing swear machine.

    If you go to "The Office" - link was courtesy of Spidey! and take a tour you will notice an upside down door mat that reads "Read the FAQ dammit!"
