    Bad language on the rise?

    Has anyone else noticed a significant increase of posts with bad language? I know I'm seeing quite a few more of these. I've already seen 3 or 4 today alone.

    I speak regarding character substitution or astericks in words, as if that somehow makes it ok. Maybe I'm just old school, but if you can't write a sentence without expletives, perhaps you should think of another way to get our point across.

    What do you ##@(***@!!!!!)#### mean? (Mods, just kidding to make a point).

    I agree, the Mods are letting the standards slip lately. I've noticed it also.

    Fair Disclosure: The only points I have here (now gone but I still have a black mark) was for Language (which was hinted at). I respected this site and the Mod who made it a point of contention. I have not made the same mistake twice.

    Mods, please keep DC clean.

    The fact that this is a Civil Forum, regardless of extreme political views (both ends of the spectrum) and Polite, is why it is successful.

    Again, I agree that we need to keep the Language G or just under PG (movie ratings).

    There is no 'weakness' in being 'polite'. Only idiots confuse 'politness' with 'weakness', until you correct them on it.

    Thanks OP for posting.

    I don't know if it was my place to do so, but I have PMd a few people who were new and quoted them Forum Rule 4 (I think it is). If it's not my place to do that, Mods feel free to PM me and let me know. That said, I agree that there have been a lot of ******s used.

    Probably just a sign of the times. Most people on here have many reasons to be upset over the way this country is headed.

    Meh. I've been around the worst military mouths, to teaching high school students, preachers, presidents of colleges, and everyone in between and i have found very few that don't cuss at some point or the other.

    As long as people aren't intentionally defeating the censoring system set forth by the board admin then i just don't see the big deal with asterisks. Maybe they're mad or trying to get their point rammed home.

    Sorry, it just doesn't bother me in the least how another adult chooses to express themselves within reasonable, coherent limits.

    Especially when it's not a direct attack on any other member etc.

    One reason i joined,is because i hate the name calling and fussing.To me,it's even more dumb,when it involves someone you don't know on a computer.I like the fact that it's clean,but,as long as no one is cursing me,it really doesn't bother me much.No one can say anything,i haven't heard before.While i haven't been a member long,i haven't seen anything bad,so far.

    Agree. Eveyone has remaind in 'good taste' but we need to maintain a minumin baseline of common decorum. We may be here as Forum Members, but a lot of other eyes are watching to call us racist gun clingers. Regardless of the fact that this Forum has Members and Contributers of all races! Word.

    THe the report feature to let us mods know about language or other forum violations . This way we can 1. Remind new members who missed this rule. 2. Keep track of repeat offenders.
    With all the new influx of members it is bound to get busy with more violations till everyone familiarized with this forum.
    Thanks,

    Todays society is not the society it was 40-50 years ago. It is disturbing to me to hear pre-teens, in public, swearing like sailors. I've worked "in the oil patch" for 40+ years and when around men-men say pretty much what they want. But this forum and other public places should be respected, and decorum and restraint should be the norm. JMHO.
