    A young child reading a comic in the "good old days", would probably have imagined these words to be much different than a teenager these days, which can be part of the problem.
    Oh Adam your not that naive, I knew exactly what was meant as a youth and kids are even more street now. I still cant see anything wrong with using # as long as its not part of abusive behaviour, but rules are rules and even if I dont agree I will bow down to them. Ive stated my opinion and will now bow out of this debate, Ken. ps 1 last thought thanks to Paul I cant call anyone a worm now as it may be misinterpreted, lol

    I for one am finding the thread very educational.

    I started this thread for a couple of reasons Martin. One, it's a subject that has been (and probably will continue to be) discussed on the forum, so rather than clutter up other threads with unrelated discussions, I thought it would be better to keep it contained.
    The other reason for the thread, was to provide the forum members with the reasons behind the zero tolerance approach to bad language.
    I was hoping that members can input their comments on the subject, and we can offer explanations, as it can be difficult to understand the reasoning behind our decisions.


    As you say Martin "this position hasn't changed and is certainly not up for negotiation". I in no way intend this thread to be seen as a poll, or vote, just offer a little clarity on the subject.

    Hope that remains clear to the forum members.

    All I can say is that you english speakers are very strange and sensitive about this. And it can be hard at times moderating myself, as there are words in my language that are perfectly innocent, that when translated to English you would see as a swear word...I have learned. Sometimes that makes it hard for me to form a sentence when I want to describe things.

    I used to read comics as a child, and there was a stage when I assumed these symbols stood for either sound, or words like "blast" and the such. Maybe it's because I was brought up by a pretty old fashioned family, and my family never swore, or exposed me to swearing.

    I do see your point, but we must understand that there are many lifestyles out there, and to protect all of them, it's better to be over cautious

    We're aware it can be especially difficult in circumstances such as your's, and we greatly appreciate how well you self moderate in these instances.

    I can assure you, Rune, that many native english speakers have difficulty in forming a sentence, both verbally and in writing, that doesn't include rude or offensive language.
