Language in this section.
 
Look gang, I know that the topics we discuss here can inspire strong emotions. But you have got to get a grip on the language. Kev is very specific about this being a family oriented site and about language. Especially bypassing the language filter.

I spend entirely too much time here editing posts for unsuitable language. I leave a comment at the bottom warning to not bypass the filter. But so far that has done nothing.

So I'm instituting a new personal policy. If I have to edit your post for language, you will receive a warning. After that, every instance will receive an infraction. So if you've done this a few times, you might want to go back and edit your posts. Because if I have to edit several of your posts, you may end up with enough infractions to get a restricted access or a time-out.

I don't like giving you folks a hard time, and you don't like it either. Following the rules is a win/win for both of us. So please take a moment to familiarize yourself with them here:

Especially these two parts:

Quote:

1. Foul and/or vulgar language should be avoided when possible. We understand discussions get heated sometimes and tempers flare but please remember we have members here of all kinds of religious faiths, ethnic backgrounds, and a lot of minors as well. This is a family friendly forum Keep your language family friendly.
The easiest way to keep out of trouble is to just type every word spelled correctly, the language filter will change most banned words to *******. If you type "S**T" then we consider that bypassing the filter, don't do it just type it the way it should be. Some words are not picked up by the filter and you may get a warning or infraction for using them so try to remember this is a family forum.
Quote:

22. Do not bypass the language filter. It's there for a reason. The forum has a language filter. Do not try to bypass it by typing in a symbol or changing the spelling of a cuss word. If you feel like cussing just type it like it should be spelled and the language filter will show it like this ******, anything else is considered bypassing the language filter and is against forum rules.

I'm guilty of this. Well, guilty of #1, not #22 cuz I'm not that clever.

My apologies to you Mike and Kev, I'll keep a leash on my tongue...so to speak.

No apologies needed! I'm just trying to give a bit of heads up is all. And for those who have been dinged for language, if it's any consolation, I have been infracted for language too. I'm just as human as the rest of you folks. :D:

Yeah, got to keep it clean for the youngsters !

Damn youngster whipper snappers.......grumble grumble, (kicks rock). :D:

Dude111 03-27-2013 05:27 AM

Well Mike Kevin has filters on words he doesnt want used on these message bases.. It doesnt really matter if someones post has a bunch of ***********'s in them buddy :) (Dont worry about it,its why the filter is there!)

But I assume on THE DARK SIDE kevin doesnt mind swears being used right?? (I wonder if he can disable the word filter on JUST THAT MESSAGE BASE (And all the staff bases of course))

How funny.

WilsonRev1615 06-12-2013 10:43 PM

Do NSA keywords count as "unsuitable language"? ;) Sorry... Had to.

Oldvernie 06-12-2013 10:47 PM

Well - crumpets!

MikeK 06-23-2013 09:47 PM

Just another reminder on the language filter. I'm getting tired of editing posts. Infractions are going to be handed out if this continues.

Dude111 06-24-2013 02:46 AM

Mike you shouldnt have to worry about it buddy!!

All bad words are replaced with stars.... Who cares how many stars are in someones post?? (Just trying to help you)


Now if they do something TO GET AROUND THE FILTER thats different!

Bypassing the filter is exactly the problem. There are two seperate sections in the rules that explain it clearly and explain that it's prohibited. Yet every day I end up editing post after post of people doing exactly that.

Just type the word out normally and let the filter star it out. DO NOT type part of the word and hide the rest.

Dude111 06-27-2013 06:51 PM

Ah ok buddy,i didnt realise ppl were doing that....... Thats not good....

The only public message base where swearing is allowed is The Dark Side right?? (Kevin could disable the filter on that base (WHT has the filter disabled on the social issues message base (also VBB) so i know it can be done))

MikeK 07-07-2013 10:14 AM

The language issue continues despite warning after warning. As of now, infractions will be handed out like candy for the slightest bypass of the language filter. Don't whine to me if you get one. You had plenty of advanced warning.

MikeK 07-16-2013 05:29 PM

Another quick reminder about the language. Type it out normally and let the filter handle it. If you bypass the filter, you will get an infraction. If you're a habitual offender, you will be given a vacation.

MikeK 07-18-2013 07:47 PM

Folks, I'm not going to run out of infractions, no matter how hard you try. So just keep right on bypassing the profanity filter, and I'll just keep right on handing out the infractions for it. You've been warned multiple times over and over.

Dude111 07-19-2013 07:59 PM

Im sorry Mike that they dont seem to care,its kinda sad........ Kevin is the one they are hurting the most and if it wasnt for him WE WOULDNT HAVE THIS SITE!!

They should wisen up i think!

MikeK 07-23-2013 11:45 PM

Folks, it's not OUR fault that you did not read the rules that you agreed to follow when you signed up for this site. If you had, then you would know not to bypass the profanity filter and this thread would never have needed to be made, now would it? Go read them now!

If you bypass the profanity filter, you WILL receive an infraction for it. DO NOT DO IT!
And if you come whining to me in PM about it like a 5 year old, you WILL receive another for being a pain in the ass. DO NOT DO IT!

The sad part is that I tried being nice about it. And as usual, that had absolutely no effect. Many of you whine about how tough we are, but it's the only thing that works. As I've said before, we don't like giving you a hard time, and you don't like it either. Following the rules is a win/win for both of us. But some people just have to learn the hard way I guess.

MikeK 07-29-2013 06:36 PM

Bumping for the new posts button users.

sagewillow 07-29-2013 06:41 PM

Thanks. I actually hadn't read this about the language and thought I was doing a good thing by not typing the word. Gottcha. I'll stick to good ole dang nabbit gramma cursing from now on.

; )

You can take the girl out of the Army but you can't take the Army out of the girl.

Well, it's either grandma cursing, or type the word out properly and let the filter handle it. There really isn't any middle ground. :D:

And thank you for your service.
