I agree with the words that are already blocked out, but for the ones that aren't I don't agree.
It's the WI staff's decision and if they don't think it should be blocked, then ..

People should remember that swearing only illustrates bad taste and lack of judgement, the bottom line is these kinds of words are extremely offensive and no one has right using them at this kind of site. Especially when children are reading these posts. It is very poor rolemodeling.

If person feels the need to swear maybe they should write it and then before submitting it, change the swear into a more appropriate word, and then hit submit. Just a thoght...sometimes if you get it out than you feel better and are in a better position to either not submit or change it.
I respect your opinion but
Sometimes people say what they would say IRL
I mean i doubt you have gone your whole life without saying a bad word KWIM?
Just becuase I say something that got stared out dosent make me a bad person that you apparently are judgeing me as.
No offence ment by this!

yeah! The word I used is a word that isn't the greatest thing to be saying, but it isn't really bad, and I use it a lot in real life when i want to describe a piece of junk, and it gets thru the system.

Maybe I should have worded things differently. And yes in my high school and college years I sweared more than I like to remember. And even now a swear slipps out here and there. I mean if I were to slip and fall and sprained my ankle a swear is undoubtibly come flying out of my mouth.

But when I am sitting down, reading, and typing...well the entire process is much more conscious. Writing is a slower process and requires more thought than when something catches you off guard and/or you are really ticked off and venting in conversation with another adult. I mean how many adults do you see swearing in regular conversation and having it be a huge/dominate part of their vocabulary? I don't see it often. And I definitely don't see other parents intentionally swearing to or amost their children.

So I guess all I was trying to express was that the adult members of WI most likely know better than to swear at a site that young ones are reading at. And that we owe the younger ones in particular to choose better word chioces when we are expressing ourselves.

Yet some choose swear regardless. I understand teens having a tougher time with this, but I do not understand grown adults having a tough time with omitting swears and using another word that expresses the exact same feelings. Swearing is not an involuntary response...especially when writing.

And I am sorry if you took offense to my earlier post and I hope that you do not take offense to this one. I am human and I mess up plenty....again all I was trying to say was WI is not the place for this kind of language... I was and am not trying to judge anyone that swears or deem them a bad person, and I am sorry you took it that way.

Thanks for the reminder! We all need one like this, because, as some of us know, these words can prove very offensive.

yeah, sometimes when I am mad or shocked a swear comes flying out of my mouth, but I ususally stop myself before anything bad comes out.
