    Does the lounge use some sort of censorship?

    I can say vagina monologues, but I cannot say @#$!% ("a" & "r" & "s" & "e"), a perfectly proper word.

    If used in the wrong context, that's another matter.

    Re: Does the lounge use some sort of censorship?

    Yes, there is some censorship of <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0> profanity, see the Rules. You can see for yourself the countries from which our two current primary Administrators Eileen and Claude live in and originate from. And please, be nice when you speak about our Administrators, they work very hard for no compensation to maintain the Lounge. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Would you like us to add vagina to the 'badwords' list? <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    No, No Eileen <img src=/S/nope.gif border=0 alt=nope width=15 height=15>, I'm reasonably confident Howard's objection is that monologue went through <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>.
    Cheers, Claude.

    Re: Does the lounge use some sort of censorship?

    One board I used to visit wouldn't even let you say cockroach or cocked hat. In any case, filtering words which would generally be regarded as unacceptable in, say, a family context, is not what I would call censorship. Nor is removing defamatory, potentially dangerous or obscene material. Supressing your opinion should it not agree with mine (and vice versa) is.
    You are, of course, at liberty to differ.

    No, allow "a" "r" "s" "e". THere;s nothing bad about that word.

    Re: Does the lounge use some sort of censorship?

    Lemme see if this one gets bounced:

    Here in Kentucky and other so-called southern states, many people say SHOOT instead of some other word that your Mom would slap your face for saying!

    One SHOOTS a firearm...the other word is a body function ! <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>...unless one has body function loaded in a firearm, well, then, that's a different matter ! <img src=/S/rofl.gif border=0 alt=rofl width=15 height=15>

    Re: Does the lounge use some sort of censorship?

    ...speaking of which, one sure-fire way to get our German teacher uptight was to confuse the verbs 'schiessen' and 'scheissen'

    ..which reminds me of a vignette from 3rd Rock : Dick sitting in his office, expectorating into a revolving air-cooler, trying, as he put it, ' to find out what happens when the spit hits the fan'
