Hey gang,

I've noticed lately an increase in use of words that are not allowed here. Not everything is caught in the filter. So, wanted to take a moment to remind everyone of this rule:

2. Swearing is not allowed in the public forums. The site automatically edits many terms widely recognized as profane, but the moderation staff may further edit language in response to member sensitivity.

Substituting letters with other characters or symbols isn't acceptable either. For example, using @ to replace a. Or ! to replace i. If we can tell what you mean, then even the word with the characters substituted needs to go.

I know it's a pain, but it's a rule that's been around a long time and we'd appreciate it if everyone would double check your posts before sending and see if there's anything that needs editing.

Thank you
