After 15 minutes browsing the boards for the first time in 3 weeks, the first thing I notice is a marked increase in crude, filthy language in posts.

Can it, guys. :doubt:

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

I personally did not notice anything, but I only looked a couple of threads and I guess I have gotten used to seeing profanity everywhere anyway... :p :D

I haven't pointed any fingers, and I'm not planning on doing so. But considering this is a public board, those of you who are unable to control your overly-peverse minds and mouths will find themselves the direct cause of word-filters being reinstated - a feature that has been disabled since the move to vB.

i try to use as little if any bad language as possible... in fact, of the four bad words (i'm assuming) i'll bet i've only said like 2 or 3 of them.

hehehe, between an0n and Stryke they probably have about 99% of the bad words :D

[color=33ff00]As always I think this issue is being taken lightly.

an0n most of your antics can be passed off as funny but you push it far too often and usually in inappropriate circumstances. Tone it down.

I can't help it. I see every warning as a challenge and blatantly ignore it as an act of defiance.

Pity me :(.

It's not a warning. It's a threat. Deal with it.
