    Random Inquiry - Why can't we curse on this board????

    Just wondering, we're all adults here. Sometimes we get fired up and wanna let loose. More importantly, most of us are orginally New Yorkers and cursing is a birthright. So I ask my fellow wise JI posters - why can't we curse on this board?!?!?!

    I find the whole thing hypocritical but that's just me being all European.

    You can’t type curse words, but if it’s in a picture it’s OK. :rolleyes:

    Same with nudity. A chick can be completely naked, as long as she a string going up her but and her nipple isn’t showing, it’s OK. :rolleyes:


    Must protect the children !!

    And if he sees what may possibly be 1/1000th of an inch of nipple, he breaks out the magnifying glass to make sure it isn't.

    Not to be a wet blanket, but it's like my Dad used to say.

    "You live under my roof, you live by MY rules".

    I ended up shooting the f*cker.

    It is, to the best of my knowledge. The only posters who seem to be children or childlike are the Pats and the Fins fans -and therein lies the definition of why they act that way. It's a football site - it should be about football (and other sports), chicks, cursing and all that stuff. If I get fired up over a big win or loss I should be able to vent my emotions like an adult. And not have to change the spelling of words so they are deemed "acceptable" IMO.....

    HAHAHAHA - My friends and I are all college educated with professional gigs and we talk that way amongst each other. Perhaps we are the exception to the rule.....

    The site is 10 years old, these are the owners rules, it really is very simple if you think about it. This is not about censorship or freedom of expression, it's about what the owner wants, and the choices are simple, follow those rules or speak however you like somewhere else.

    Hopefully you'll see you can still enjoy it here without dropping f bombs.

    I enjoy it here plenty, I dig the people and the great convos. I'm just saying, we should be able to speak the way we choose - I'm not saying I am gonna leave or anything of that nature. I guess I just do not see the point behind the rule, it hinders more then it helps. I suppose absolute power corrupts absolutley.

    What? You're a sensitive gentleman who carries the weight of societal ills on his massive shoulders.
