    Arrow Disappointed

    Just wanted to make this public, of course in the best interest of the forum.

    I just received an 'inappropriate language' warning.

    I understand there have to be rules but this is a very subjective rule and one that I feel I did not break.

    The 'rules' sure have a clear (note sarcasm) definition of "language you'd speak around elders."

    I've been a member here for nearly 3.5 years (longer than the person who gave me the infraction) and never received a warning of any sort.

    As a man who has graduated from a military academy and who now works in one of the most selective agencies in the world, I understand there are times in life when you nod, "yes sir" and move one. The little voice is telling me this is one of those times.

    I wonder if that means no more "hell's" or "damn's, even if the words might be fitting and adaptable for the context of the then pending discussion?" That must be a crushing blow to an old military man (including active duty officer ring knockers).

    From a lawyer who is accustomed to be whupped up from time to time and who must develop thick skin to thrive and survive. AND I have presumed that seasoned military officers and gentlemen likewise would have developed a thick skin.
    Live every day so that you can, with a clear conscience, look all men in their eyes and tell them to go to hell.

    That's exactly what it means.

    The second word you mentioned is the one I was warned for.

    I got a warning for politics when I posted what I just thought was a funny picture. It is easy to transgress, I'll do my best to moderate myself and keep that 45 point cushion.

    BTW, how long to points stay around?

    May have been a context issue...

    Actually just to keep everyone honest, that was not the word you used. It was part of it, but had to drag God into it which, to most people, is a completely different level. While there is not much of anything that shocks or offends me, personally, many others don't have the appreciation of swear words that some of us do. Just don't do it and you won't receive a warning, or an infraction...
