    See, that did not get censored did it?



    I still say that there is no censorship on this site. But, as we are talking about it, how is The Specialist?..................like him to let rip would you?

    Valid point John, I guess it is just a very sensitive topic.

    While I agree with your use of the Specialist as an example of what we would not like to see, I think that often we all consider ourselves individuals, and we would in our minds like to think that our words are dealt with on a sort of "case by case basis", but the fact remains the rules are here for everyone and anyone. This I will accept.

    I think it is, and always will be difficult for many of us, including myself to realize that AO is far bigger than just a select few. At times I feel (and I am sure) that I do receive a certain amount of creedence when it comes to my posts. I do appreciate it trust me. As I am an ignorant bastard at times.

    I do however think it is important that people including my esteemed colleague The_Jinx be allowed to voice his, or her opinion regarding the overall rules whether enforced or not on this site.

    We all (those of us who have stuck around for years) enjoy being here, and I think it is very important that it not become a complete dictatorship. Which I truly do not believe it has. (yet)

    I just can't resist...............................



    Joe thank god you are not a brain surgeon.

    I do realise that I should probably be banned for that post..............after all mixing pre 1000 Saxon with 1500's French? but this is what we do?

    But isn't that what it is about?...........................we CAN say what we like.............providing that we are intelligent enough?

    Call it what you will.. I think word blacklist are a childish way to deal with a stuck up general public.

    It's one of those things (like DRM) that hurts the people that are playing nice a lot more then the people that want to abuse their rights..

    In the Netherlands we don't *bleep* out words on TV in general.. I was watching a program on the EO (a strict Christian broadcaster) and they were interviewing some kids and there was some *bleep*ing there..

    The thing is I wouldn't have noticed the words if not for the bleeps and I think the same goes for this forum..

    People won't notice an ocasional **** if it wouldn't have been bleeped out ..

    With the way the "internet" is, the very idea of censorship, is like sticking your thumb in the hole while the rest of the dyke falls apart......it's out there now....and like I said in the deleted post, what constitutes a minor nowadays, if it's the old 16 yrs of age, then forget it, this age group could teach some of us some new words to say...

    If it's less then that, then they are not going to stick around a "Tech" forum (no games)...have you heard children nowadays, as young as 8 and they are very aware of the language.....

    Censorship of any kind is just wrong......and if we are all supposed to be adults on this site, then lets act like it, and if the language of adults is such that it is peppered with profanities, then so be it......but to edit out words because they may offend someone is off base, it's like the TV, if your offended you can either a) change the channel b) turn it off.....

    I am not familiar with 1,000 Saxon or French for that matter, so disguising the words in the form of another language is what? maybe we can all learn new languages by trying out curse words in say Japanese or Chinese or Finnish, that will really mess those minors up....

    Censorship of any kind is just wrong..
    Hi all,
    Dalek, do you agree with the people who put out the Freenet program who feel that freedom of speech also includes the right to traffic in child pornography and promulgate terrorism? Is there a point where "free speech" becomes evil?

    Yes, words are the ways by which we express emotions, ideas, etc. But does that mean that every idea or feeling that I have needs to be expressed? Is every idea or feeling worthy of expression? This morning I lost my temper and uttered some profanity. Did it help me to express my thoughts in that particular way? Not a bit. Was anyone else helped? No.

    Is every word good and helpful? Let's take the word f**k. When someone uses that word does it bring to your mind the idea of a beautiful act of love between a man and woman who love one another? Or something else? What effect does that particular word have on you? Isn't the idea of sex being "profaned" by this word?

    What is profanity? Isn't the key idea that something is being "profaned"? Something is being made common or devalued.

    I know that some people on this site work for corporations. When they are called on to make a presentation to a group do they lace their presentation with profanity? Why not?
    For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Hmm, lot's of philosophy in this thread.

    It's actually pretty simple. The AUP says no f bombs. It does not say that the word is wrong or immoral.

    Simple playground rules. Play by em or go somewhere else.

    That said, many of us follow rules that we don't agree with. This includes me too.

    Anyway, another useless opinion.
