Four letter words and other foul language
« on: August 25, 2008, 02:13:56 PM »
I kind of wondering about the official policy, if one exists on vulgar language.  I'm really fond of vulgar language in writing when I'm cranky and I tend to be boggled by the idea that a word can be so bad as to not be spoken... but I don't know how much control laetusatheos has over what might be determined vulgar by a host or parent company for this bulletin board.

So are we on HBO or Primetime and is there a policy on curse words due to what I could best term as operating restrictions?
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.

Laetus knows best, but most hosts don't care unless the content of the site is illegal. Some don't care even then as long as you pay them.

What does put some spokes in our bad-mouthed wheels is the fact that the age limit for this board is 13 (technically). Thus, if your language is PG15, you should moderate it  :borg:

There is no official bad language policy, however I think the first rule about treating others with respect they deserve means that derogatory terms such as the N word should not be used.  Other than that, I haven't really come across any words that I thought were inappropriate.  

As far as the younger audience is concerned...imo it is not our or my responsibility to filter what other people's children are looking at.  This is not a forum that is focused on having a child based audience and therefore there is no reason for us to have to cater to what might be appropriate for that crowd.

That said, cuss words are not very appropriate if you are, for instance, debating a theist who is being civil because it can distract from what you are trying to get across.  So I would suggest using your internal filter to decide when you think cussing is and is not appropriate just like you would in real life.  Other than that, the extent to which you use cuss words may reflect poorly on yourself if you use them too often but I don't care as long as it does not end up negatively affecting the quality of the forum.

Btw, I do have the ability to censor on the forum if I thought it was necessary.

What does put some spokes in our bad-mouthed wheels is the fact that the age limit for this board is 13 (technically). Thus, if your language is PG15, you should moderate it  :borg:

I deactivated the age limit clause because the COPPA thing was causing problems for those who weren't paying attention when they registered.  I don't think we've had anyone under 13 register anyway...at least not that I know of.

I'm just wondering, was pissing on walls a public sanitation problem in Jerusalem back in the day?  God certainly seemed rather fixated on that...
