A Reminder on the Language.
We've had an increase in language infractions over the last few days.
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.

JD, I'm sure your intentions on starting this thread here is a serious reminder. Thanks for doing so, it's that diligence that makes DC a good place to join.
Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

I was one of, if not "the" culprit. I didn't read the forum rules closely enough, my bad.
When I think about the rule, it makes perfect sense though. We all need to put our best foot forward as gun owners, and swearing doesn't help anybody's cause, it only hurts it.
Thanks JD, for catching my mistake and letting me know in a nice way.

Crap. Profanity is one of the languages I speak fluently.
Just kidding, I agree, we need reminders about the language thing, thanks JD.

You may have been one of them (I don't know for sure) but there has been an increase lately, in general, of language violations. We are currently getting 3-4 per day on some days, up from maybe one per day. This is an effort to reduce the number of violations, and infractions, and keep the forum clean. We appreciate everyone's cooperation.....

I left a motorcycle forum (thought it was family friendly) a while back because of them allowing the "F" bomb and other that I don't use or approve of - especially in public arena.
Thanks for the reminder.

I totally agree with the clean language standards. While I personally feel that an appropriately placed F-bomb does wonders in some arenas, I dont think this forum is one of them.

While I can be a rather foul mouthed person at times (it can be an artform in its own right, if you don't believe that, you never went through Parris Island), but I keep my language here to what I consider "visiting grandma's house appropriate", after all, you never know who is reading your stuff online.
Thanks for the reminder and the moderation.
