    Actually, "ass" can be permitted depending on usage. Although not as an insult.

    However:

    4. As a family-friendly forum, we ask that you keep your language clean, exactly as we hope you would when addressing respected elders. Creative workarounds (the use of special characters to replace some letters) on language are not allowed. Violators of this rule will be warned once; those repeatedly breaking this rule will have their accounts permanently revoked. NOTE: Links to off site material will be held to our family-friendly standard, as well.
    Workarounds are specifically prohibited by the rules. Which would be why it was edited.

    Its not really a thin skin thing, its working within the guidelines set by the rules.

    Thank you Rock and Glock. My grandmother used to say, "You never know until you find out!" She was a wonderful, happy lady who laughed a lot.

    I find it sadly amusing that a thread like this is even necessary.
    But it is nice to know there is a reason that I can't find certain threads and posts. There were some days I was starting to question my sanity!

    No, I started that one. You just picked up on it. I will refrain from mag/clip , bullet/round and other improper, but commonly used terminology use threads. I do think, however, that a common vocabulary makes communication easier.

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Actually I had to correct his spelling of the word "Ignoramus" - What does that tell you?
    DO NOT post and call somebody an Ignoramus if you cannot spell it correctly!

    Mulle46 just PMed me and said that all DC mods are a bunch of cotton headed ninny mugginses (mugginsies?). He also said that you all were afraid to stand up to him and delete his account!

    See the proof is right here (I never doctored it one bit. No sir, not one bit):
