I find bad language almost as annoying as bad spelling , poor punctuation and appalling grammar .

Perhaps we should have a swear box donations going to the site. I must agree swear words on the forum should be toned down a bit.

Would have thought it would be relatively simple for them to have a swear filter, most forums seem to have them.

Just got in so here we go :tup:

Firstly, sorry to hear you're disappointed :tdown:

Secondly, where were the swear words posted ? In the chat section or elsewhere ?

This place is like a pub (more specifically in the chat area). It's a room full of people that will mimic real life. Not everyone will get on with everyone else, there's bound to be a bust up along the way, you're likely to overhear something in someone else's conversation that you don't like or language you wouldn't use yourself but above all everyone is pretty much free to go about their business as they please. That's what usually keeps the harmony going along with tollerance and the ability to skip over something you may find distasteful.

There won't be a 'blanket' swear filter going on this site as it's a censorship I don't believe in. Swearing may be an acceptable day to day thing for some but not for others, that's how life is and without the variety that we have this'd be a very boring world.

Tell you what I will do though, I'll add on a filter as I have on other forums whereby each individual member can set up their own swear filters which will only affect what they read. That way everyone is allowed to enjoy the site how they'd prefer.

How's that sound ?

Swearing as a personal attack against another member isn't acceptable though so if that is the case then please let me know by using the Report Post button


Same goes for anything you think should be brought to my attention incase I don't get to see it :tup:

Everyone is different, some people swear some don't, I thnk that this Forum has got it dead right. I don't see a great deal of swearing on here and if I did it would not offend me one bit. Intolerance of others, now that's a dangerous thing.

I'm not a lover of foul Language even though I'm probably the worse culprit, but how does a swear filter make it any better? when somebody writes a swear word, it comes out as say "plum" or some over word, I don't know any body that, when they read it out, either aloud or in there head they always say the original intended word
ps apologies for rambling on

The optional filter i'll be putting in place will work on words just being ***'d out rather than replaced. The words that a user wants to replace will need to be typed into an option in their usercp. See, fully customisable and entirely indiviual choice :tup:
