    I was a child at one point too. And look, I'm bothered by it. So was the OP and many others that have stood up in support of a change. However I don't recall ever stating that anyone was a child at some point. What I did state was that at least the majority of people that want to be able to continue using profanity here ARE NOT PARENTS. If you haven't been a parent then its hard for you to say that you the prespective required here. I'm pretty sure that I didn't at that time in my life.


    Yes, and? Why does it matter if we're not parents? Having children is not going to change my perspective, and I'm sure a lot of people here would say the same thing.

    I'd also appreciate it if you didn't ignore half my post next time. Please, tell me how banning swearing is going to accomplish anything.



    Sooo...Are they or are they not harming anyone? You just completely contradicted yourself. They don't harm anyone except the people that they harm???????


    Nice try, but that's not what I said. What I did say is that some people take it too seriously for no (real) reason. It's the illusion of harm.

    You seem to be forgetting that everyone here has been a child at one point. I'm really not sure why you think we don't have any perspective on this, because most of us do. It doesn't matter if you have a child or not. And you know what? Protecting children from swear words is impossible anyway. It exists everywhere. You might as well ban cellphones for all the good it's going to do. Banning swearing on a forum will do nothing except get more people in trouble for trivial reasons. It will not protect children. It will not make the forum safer. It will not stop people from being offended. It will do nothing.

    As for hate speech...well, it should be fairly obvious why this is wrong. But swears, as long as they are not aimed specifically at someone, don't really harm anyone. In my opinion, the only people who are harmed by it are the people who take it too seriously.

    I want to ask you...why do you think swearing is so horrible?

    So let me ask this again. Would you stand it a classroom full of 10 year olds and start spouting profanity? If the answer is "No" then why do you believe that it is appropriate here? There is no difference.


    Except for the fact that this whole forum is not composed entirely of ten-year-olds. There is a difference.

    Like so many other people in the world, my life isn't very...easy. As I mentioned in another thread, I have a crippling and degenerative disease that will eventually kill me, probably in less than 10 years. So, I suppose I just have to make the best out of life until it's over.

    Would it be possible to implement a optional filter for profanity? That way, people who are offended by swear words could censor them, and people who aren't or don't care either way can still use them.

    And by censor, I mean replace swear words with ***** or even replace it with another word entirely (for example, on the Spore forums, all curses are replaced with "SPORE").

    I watched the TV series, but haven't had a chance to read the book series just yet. I thought it was pretty interesting. I don't really have a favorite character, though...

    EDIT: Well, yesterday was my birthday, so I got the first four books of the series. I'll start reading it when school starts. :)

    I don't want to seem as though I'm heartlessly prying, its not that at all. What sort of disease is it? If you do not wish to talk about it, I understand entirely.

    Bud, I know people who have been happily married and have kids in less than 10 years. 10 is a very big number in terms of life and I guarentee you will encounter someone who is just as shy as you and have a happy life.


    It's certainly possible, true. But I'm not very optimistic, as you can probably tell. :P
