It's Bearpaws site and if he wants to make it a day at the church then so be it.  Whats really the difference between *&#$# and "censored"? A semi intelligent person knows what is implied by both.

I don't go to church, this has nothing to do with church or religion.

When profanity is seen, we can either delete the entire post or substitute the word *censored*. I thought it was more considerate to leave the post and only delete the profanity. It's still pretty easy to simply explain to young children that the person used a bad word.

I want to keep Hunting-Washington a respectable and family friendly site. If you want to talk profanity please do it at the corner bar, in your home, at your work place, or anywhere else that it does not shed a poor light on this hunting community. It's really not that hard to understand or do.

I'm sure I've done it, apologies.  Your house, your rules, I have no problem with that!
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

I still end up wondering what expletives are acceptable  :dunno: then just get pissy and leave again for fear of offending people with who I am and how I am....and not knowing what I can and cant say.....

can we get an adults only forum where we dont have to talk like we are teaching elementary school or in a sensitivity training :dunno: :dunno: half serious half facetious......but really I do come here to talk to adults around a campfire and that rarely involves a swear jar....

Elementary school? apparently you haven't been around many schools lately!!!!

I wish to apologize for typing BS the other night. I was hot under the collar and developed a cold while recovering from nose surgery. No more potty words from this guy. Promise.

I was kidding. Anyway, I know a great joke about "people who nag", about a farmer who wants a divorce. But I could lose my job for telling it so we'll have to go hunting (way, way out in the woods) if you want to hear it.

I moderate several other forums, pertaining to a completely different hobby, one of which is one of the largest forums on the internet.  While forums do have software to "censor" specific words, people commonly misspell swear words, purposely, as a way around the vulgarity sensor.  This is commonly  known as Masked Vulgarity.  On other forums, as a staff member, I don't have time to edit people's posts because those people don't have the common sense or the respect to avoid swearing...it's really not that difficult to carry on a typed conversation, devoid of swear words.  Instead of editing out swear words, I simply delete their entire post, sending them a polite PM explaining why.  The second instance of Vulgarity or Masked Vulgarity by the same member, results in an "infraction," which is typically a recorded warning, nothing more, as a way for staff members to keep track of issues.  That infraction is also accompanied by a friendly PM, reminding the individual of the rules.  Further violations would typically result in a short "time out."  Adults shouldn't ever reach that stage but, unfortunately there are adults who refuse to act as such.

And I do so in those places you mentioned.
I do not on here or any other forum I am on.  It's really not that difficult not to do so either.

Thanks Dale!   :tup:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
