    We may be called to gauge the appropriateness of lethal force one day, in an instant, with no edit function.
    We may have to have full control over our actions, words and deeds in a scenario that will result in a court case where calling someone all the names under the sun and then shooting them will not bode well.

    Restraint and self-discipline, it's what separates us from the beasts.

    O.K. Now let me be the the feces in the punch bowl. Cursing has its place. General Patton was quoted as saying if he wanted something to stick in the mind of his troops, he used bad language. After 21 years in the Marine Corps, when it comes at you hard, I learned that it sticks. With that said, this forum is no place for cussing. Not only can anyone access it, young and old (even though I was told that only "members" can access this forum after too much of a personal matter was being posted, so it was OK, we need to be mindful of others that shouldn't be exposed to foul language) this forum is for the rational and thoughtful exchange of ideas and thoughts.

    Additionally, after some thought, buckeye07 has it right. I too cringe when seeing cussing in a post, yet I am guilty as the next guy for using strange characters in my posts.

    This is a good reminder for me to watch myself. Thank you.

    I have been guilty of it myself. I guess I'm with Chorizo, sometimes I use it to make a point, but here where your words are somewhat permanent for all to see, I'd rather not....

    I may have been guilty of this myself. I will endeavor to do a better job of monitoring my language.

    I challenge everyone to do the same.

    Well, I gotta say...NOBODY has a bigger potty mouth than I do. But since I've received an "Infraction" for my sewer mouth by one of our moderators, I have since "tried" to clean it up...sometimes it works - sometimes it doesn't. It's kinda like Chorizo said - cursing has it's place, and Al Capone said "You can get more done with a kind word and a gun than just a kind word!"

    But all in really is unneccessary.

    Please forgive me and my filthy mouth everybody!

    In Steve Martin's 1987 movie "Roxanne," he plays a small town fire chief with a large nose that gets made fun of. There is a memorable scene where he verbally jousts with a bafoon in a bar. He makes it clear that common vulgar words can only express a limited range of description as he demonstrates a huge vocabulary to describe his prominent proboscis. Same for the forum; there are always better words than the *%#@ ones.

    Sometimes my brain/mouth connection is slow, so my mouth just goes without the brains approval. As I get older, this issue seems to be working itself out. Unfortunatly I think this disorder has spread to my fingers as I get better at typing.
    Its not my fault.
    "Just blame Sixto"

    I reserve the right to make fun, point and laugh etc.

    I wish the motorcycle forums I use were as polite in their language and encouragement of keeping to the rules...

    When I get passionate I curse like a Marine (or worse, depending on my level of passion).

    I'm with Sixto.. sometimes my brain disconnects from my fingers. I'm usually very good at controlling it.. Sometimes I slip, however.


    I shall strive to clean up my typing.
