    My whole issue with all of this is it basically boils down to common sense. If you don't like the words that some people say, we have an ignore button or you can make the choice to not read that thread.

    If in the event that curse words are allowed, people better man up and not report posts left and right. I like to curse and drop the f-bomb a lot, but that doesn't mean I'm going to do it here if curse words are allowed. I may drop an f-bomb occasionally when I get heated about something, but for the most part I'll stick to my guns and only say ****, *****, etc.

    I think anyone who has ever been in the Military uses the F Bomb as a staple...................... It saves so much time, cause it describes so many things, and noone ever ****'s up the termanology.

    Yea, you military types could learn a lot from the IT world, acronyms like SNAFU and FUBAR'd makes for quick and easy ways to communicate.

    Joking aside, these are some of the things that must be decided. Are some of those military and commonly used acronyms, ok?

    I think so, but then again, if my 10 year old can say it, Im not too offended.

    Dont get me wrong, my kids dont know fubared, but they might tomorrow. If they came up and told me the lawn was fubar'd, I myself consider it a technical term......... And would pat them on the back for such a technical observation,

    but that is me./

    I use SNAFU and FUBAR a lot.

    For the folks here who are unfamiliar with those terms...

    SNAFU = Something normal all 'fouled' up

    FUBAR = f-ed up beyond all recognition

    I skipped breakfast today. I slept in an extra half hour to make up for staying up a little later to watch football last night.

    But yeah, it's 1030 here right now and I got to work about 0830ish. I had to chew my troop's arse thismorning, so I showed up WAY early.

    Just because there are adults on the board doesn't make cursing right. We have a lot of young members, and I personally don't like seeing curse words on the board.

    If that's your only form of expression, then it's pretty sad.

    What about cursing Via PM?
    You seem to do a good job of that.
