Recently there have been some users who have violated the no-swearing rules here on the forums, bypassing the autocensor through a number of methods. This is absolutely not allowed in any area of the forums, whether that be a thread or a signature or a user profile comment.

From this point on, there will be no further warnings about this, if you violate the rules on this matter, your account will be suspended for 24 hours or more.

Just promise, not swear. Or avoid oaths of all kinds.

Can there be a "Soaped" status for those who are temporarily banned for using bad words? :o

This thread reminds me of the "swearing" that takes place in A Christmas Story. ;)

What about use of the Battlestar Galactica "F" word?:D

My mom made me rinse my mouth out with soapy water once...or twice, or thrice.
Now I wonder why she went to all that trouble to prepare the mixture instead of putting a bar of soap in my mouth. :confused:

Shut-up was considered swearing. We had to say Hush-up. Yeah things like that and no elbows on the table. Little things like that you'd get a slap, but punishment from the mom was better than the terror of the belt from dad for major infractions like real cuss words. :eek:

Ralphie as Adult (http://www.sirstevesguide.com/name/nm0791789/): [narrating] Over the years I got to be quite a connoisseur of soap. My personal preference was for Lux, but I found Palmolive had a nice, piquant after-dinner flavor - heady, but with just a touch of mellow smoothness. Life Buoy, on the other hand...

Can we say ornery words like "dagnabbit" or "consarnit"?:D

Or what about as Colonel Harry T. Potter would say from time to time "Horse hockey!" Or 'English swearing' such as using the word 'bloody' ie. "I had a bloody good time last night."

I like it. Lifebuoy? Yuck!



What about use of the Battlestar Galactica "F" word?:D"Frak you, you motherfrakkker!" It's only ok if you promise to read it in Michael "Col. Saul Tigh" Hogan's Canadian space accent. :p



Can we say ornery words like "dagnabbit" or "consarnit"?:DThat's my bag already!



Or what about as Colonel Harry T. Potter would say from time to time "Horse hockey!"Yeah, that's another one I already use like the previous.


Or 'English swearing' such as using the word 'bloody' ie. "I had a bloody good time last night."This actually we're on thin ice over. We're allowing "arse" but I'm trying to be cautious here, so generally I'd prefer you didn't, but I'm not ready to say it's a rule yet.

So 'arse' is ok but 'bloody' is right out? Rather odd, that is. I'm assuming by this same logic that Peggy Bundy's maiden name is off limits as well?

Right. It's come up in the past and been dodgy, it's complicated.

Meh, I think its nonsense, personally. Regualting language is lame and kindergarten-esque. The only reason people use profanity is because its social taboo. If people made less of a big deal about it, people would use it less.

You should just make a thread for people who curse. That would be awesome! That way, people have a place to go if they want to use adult language, which won't hurt anyone. I think banning language is censorship. Seriously, if you are going to regulate language then you should regulate all mention of religion and politics as well. Sounds retarded? Yeah, that's exactly my point.

You can't enforce a no-profanity policy unless you publish a list of banned words. Then people will argue over the words and it just goes on forever. We're making a big deal over nothing.

That's a great idea! Then we can just refer to them by number when we feel like cursing!

You sound like someone who's not a parent. This is a site for kids, and those who appreciate and collect toys and collectibles, and those who like to talk about associated aspects of popular culture. With that in mind, Steve is perfectly justified in prohibiting swearing here. As a parent myself, I don't want my child exposed to the foul language of strangers, if it is within my control.

If you feel the need to express yourself with that kind of language, there is at least one other forum where swearing is permitted, at bantha skull. You might feel more comfortable there.

We're making a big deal over nothing.Of course it's censorship, it's the "auto censor" doing most of the work no less. And we do regulate discussion on religion and politics. This is a private, all-ages site about toys, there are standards regarding this sort of thing, we can get into trouble with parents groups. Swearing puts the site and forums at risk for minimal gains.

Parent groups? Are they gonna put us on some blacklist? Shouldn't they be protesting Miley Cyrus dancing on a stripper pole in daisy dukes instead of trolling the forums at Sirsteves for the F bomb?

Some of these parental groups are pretty powerful, they can get sponsors to drop the site, get hosts to take sites offline, get injunctions, they can go pretty extreme if they are mad enough about something. There's a lot going on with this sort of thing. The PMRC in the '80s was merely a parents group, despite them getting senate hearings and nearly taking down the RIAA. I can't speak to why they fight the battles they do, I am just charged with making sure our forums stay running as smoothly as possible for as many folks as possible.

Between the pole, the magazine cover, and the content of her show, she got the Disney channels added to the parental block list at my house.

No one told the late King Hamlet about this rule. He tried to get his son to swear to avenge his death over in "Hasbro Modern Retired" and got banned.

Someone here also got the ban stick due to a misplaced spacebar typing, when he meant to say "menswear."
