BeeF FlaPsI have to agree, the MODS should edit and warn for bad language outside of the melee. Reading a thread at work with f bombs and such all over it doesn't fly well with some people. Most gamers are over the age of 18 ya know, but a lot of kids are here too. [color=red]I think it's time to bring a cussword sherif in town[/color] for boards outside the melee.

If U notice right under this post by BeeF FlaPs there is a picture that says "I'D HIT IT" or sumthing close > next to a pic of anna kornakova. He thinks that this is OK 4 kids eyes but not a simple FUCKIN curse word. dumb ass. get this guy some help.

Its freedom of speach, but if I see someone saying alot of swearing for no reason out side of the melee I usuallytell them to cool it down. I think Jeff is trying to find something so that you can put on an optional word filter. Key word is OPTIONAL.

ok. we cannot ban swearing simply because of the amount of work it would require from the staff. we have better things to do than edit every other post made on these forums.

however, there are limits. people are expected to use profanity sparingly. people have had their posts edited if it is deemed to be too much by the staff. also, you are expected to refrain from using profanity in signatures & avatars and other, publicly displayed portions of your profile. simply because, every single time you post, these words appear. this is why i removed 'muthafuckin' from shadowsniper88's signature. it's like ensuring that every single post you make includes this phrase and it isn't acceptable.

NP, but when some tool with 2 posts calls me a dumbass.....

I just wish people wouldn't cuss in the game forum, why the need? I'm sure some people would volunteer to be a MOD to do just this. Either way, it's all good, just chill on the cussing for no reason kids :beer:

its ok as long as they do not go overboard with it. For instance using one every 3-5 words

that is wayyy to mucch. Some guy can have the f word 10 times in a 30 word post:lol:. I have tried the laguange filter but it does not work:lookaround:. I guess it is still being worked on?

AzHoh, and. you guys quit flaming each other, ok? that's worse than foul language.
