Just some civil disobedience from your friendly neighborhood Coppermine... Snake on!
I just removed the pic you complained about.
As to cussing, is it that hard to type "butt" or "rear" or whatever, instead of cussing? Cussing isn't wanted or needed on the boards. Simple rule, easy to follow, and not that big of a deal for most people to follow. Simply shows respect for the boards and everyone's fellow posters to not use foul language.
To answer the coming question, no, I didn't remove it, but I do support the removal of it. Oh, and it's not disobedience to ask a question, so no worries there.
Point taken; I think that going from PG to G through loses a little bit of the casual nature here at the cafe as well. Kind of giving up one thing for another. But, perhaps it's just me and I guess I can just pretend I'm back in 4th grade and say "butt" or "rear." Is "toosh" in bounds?
Yeah, I think "toosh" is just fine.
4th grade though? I know tons of adults who can get their point across without cussing, and look down on those who cannot. It's not a matter of returning to the 4th grade, it's a more of a matter of respect, as I mentioned above.
If people just have to cuss, I suggest the Yahoo message boards for that. The place is a zoo, but they don't seem to mind foul language there. Coincidence? Hmm...
Anyway, I don't think the mods or anyone else is actively searching for that particular word, they just happened to see it, and thus, removed it. I find it more interesting that people cuss and then notice when it's removed than I do the cuss word(s) actually being removed. Very interesting indeed.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
