As the recipient of a yellow card I would say this: any language that is assessed by the mods as 'objectionable' should be take in context.
I posted a topic "ESPN is s***" and recieved a yellow card. This was in response to ESPN cocking up another live draft. Would it have been the same if I had said "ESPN is crap". If so the difference is subjective.
Surely a word must be taken in context. If I had said "FBC user is s***" well maybe
In New Zealand a few years ago there was a compaint over a television ad for Toyota which used the word 'bugger'. The complaint was that 'bugger' meant sodomy. The Broadcasting Complaints Authority said that despite its historical meaning the word had now passed into accepted language and was not offensive and basically 'bugger' meant 'damn it' in NZ.
In NZ I have heard the word 'wanker' used at least twice by a leading politician in the media. I have also heard the s*** used repeatedly in US TV shows plus other words normally deemed worse.
My point is that the mod who yellow carded me might have been a bit precious. I really cannot believe that my topic title caused offence or was offensive.
