Implied use of a word? As in gee instead of "Jesus Christ", or freak instead of the f-word? There's a reason why people use euphemisms: It is to avoid use of more explicit language.

And complainers are weenies.


Don't forget "gosh", "darn"; they're probably forbidden by the same "logic". In fact, if we can't suggest words, we should probably be careful about even thinking them, simply because they're evil.

""No, they don't, they call it a implied word shovel !""

Did they get deleted?

Can you imagine how many state workers it would take to build the gallows? 1 to actually build it and 3 to sit in the truck.

FL1 MOd 2 you seem to be doing alot of deleting and splainin lately why is that? A few ppl have noticed and commented on some of these actions, and are these "complainers" always the same ones? If so wouldn't you look at that too? Just askin. How can anyone be offended by the implied use of a word if these complainers didn't already "know" the words how would they know what was being implied? So obviuosly they have heard them before,huh?

Actually it's been relatively quiet as far as deleting and editing goes.
I've offered explanations simply because I hope that people would learn, and the swearing or implied swearing has decreased dramatically as of late.
The owner has expressed over and over and over what is allowed and what isn’t.
No, the complainers are rarely "the same ones" as you put it.

Isn't that like punishing someone for what they "meant" to do?

If you’re referring to implied words no, they meant to swear, and they did, only they abbreviated it, no difference.

I wouldn't want to be accused of ARGUING WITH A MODERATOR, but, yes, there is a difference. Somebody who uses initials or a euphemism is exercising a modicum of self-control in the hope of avoiding giving offense. Somebody who just goes ahead and uses the whole word is saying that s/h/it doesn't care who s/h/it offends. You MUST be able to see that difference - ?

It's more like punishing someone for what they meant not to do.

Are people punished in America for plotting to murder someone, or are they allowed to progress as far as they want until they actually murder someone?

As a state employee I resemble that remark. Of course you forgot the person assigned to do the paperwork. And to mention that the one building it is probably a temporary employee with no benefits. But they would have the prisoners paint it as part of work release.

Actually Brain I think you can be punished in some way for "plotting" a crime. Is this what we are doing?

Conspiracy to commit murder and it can carry an equal sentence as murder itself, look at Mansion

Now that is suggesting that you know what that poster was thinking at the time. Not everyone interprets things the same and is it possible to be mistaken---of course. I just don't see letters and symbols as offensive,but maybe some do---obviously.
I was under the impression this was mostly intelligent adults posting but I have been wrong before.
