Default So we aren't allowed to swear or what?

I've noticed all the threads with swears in the titles have been editted, is it me or is that kinda weak?

Are there some young *** kids on here or something that someone is worried might be exposed to profanity??

It's just not work safe. We have to maintain some level of decency here.

I can't even click on a thread at work if it has the word "****" in the title.

You swearing keeps me from getting my mt.net fix.

If you really must ******* swear, do it inside the thread. There is no need for swearing in the titles, people use this forum at work and stuff.

Clicking on a thread with the word "****" in the title got this site banned by my previous employer's cybernanny software.
Since the DSL was at my house down due to tech issues on the provider's end, I was MT-less for a while.

I usually change the titles to keep people from getting in trouble. I dont ever change the posts because I dont care.

is "*****" ok? It's a substitution word that just happens to sound the same.

If you really lack the decency or creativity to insert a proper heading/title with respect towards others(especially with regard to work/school filters) that even a child would be safe to see it, maybe you should reconsider your thought process. Just my .02 on the subject, but I like knowing that the things I put on the internet will not further degrade society.

Once upon a time I would have not cared as much, but watching my 9 nieces and nephews grow up kind of changed the impact I might have on others.

**** that ****.

In all seriousness, we only have a couple of rules here that actually get enforced with any regularity.

1: Don't be a douche.

2: No profanity in thread titles.

3: Really, don't be a douche.

4: No lewd / obscene avatars.

5: Seriously, no douchebaggery.

6: Threads which contain nudity / perversion / etc shall contain NWS (Not Work Safe) at the beginning of the title.

7: Complaining about rules 2, 4 or 6 makes you a douche.

34: If it exists, there is **** of it. No exceptions.

Heh. We do try to make some concessions to cube-dwellers.

Yeah...just thought it was funny. If anything I hate it when people turn technical or interesting threads NSFW.

I am facing a wall in front of my boss at work (makes it easier for my daily "production conference"), and always in large labs at school.
