I'd kindly like to ask that the forum members kindly refrain from using language not appropriate here in the forums.

I'm not sure if anything has been written before or anyone has seen anything on using inappropriate language, but it seems at times to be getting out of hand. At times I'm sure it's not intensional but it does happen. Moderators, myself included will be watching and editing posts. If you see one of us has edited your post because you used language not fit for the forums, take it as a first warning. If it keeps on happening, the member can and will be banned. Please watch what you say and write, there are those here that can be offended and those that don't need to see it because of their age.

Thanks and keep it clean.

inā·ten'sionā·al adj.

1: used of the set of attributes that distinguish the referents of a given word

2: Philiosophy. A description of properties, e.g. intensional equality, that relate to how an object is implemented as opposed to extensional properties which concern only how its output depends on its input.

I agree.

Anyways since we cant use telekinesis to convey
our thoughts,knowledge, or ideas across we need
to use language. The whole purpose of any
language is to get the point across. So with
those basics in mind, no stress for feeling like
every post is a spelling-bee here with me.

Minus the bad language ofcourse. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Of course Ubi can place any restriction they like, it is their service. However I think the censorship goes a little far.
I live in Australia ( not reachable in type IXC ) and am oftentimes puzzled by what is considered too vile for common expression on the fabled home of vice 'The Internet'.

One old local joke has a punchline where one says to the other; "Don't you know the Queen's English?" and the reply is:- "Really?"

I read and laugh at Psychfilm's Noob Patrol series. Near the start of his posts he has the row of asterixes (?) to blot out some offensive term...
I took me ages to figure out what was the offending word:

I need to get the sal****er cleaned out of my ears
Ah Ha! He means that somehow the contents of the ocean entered his aural orifices.
Not, as translated for safety from Australian,
"A cartographic representation of our Southernmost ( island ) state"

It kind of makes me laugh in a land where the Toyota advertisements use a word that means to make use of what is referred to in the Film 'MallRats' as 'The Back Of a Volkswagen'

I guess I should make use of a cool acronym, but I'm afraid that would be rendered out ROFL
- How about LMNRO -

Yes indeed the English language is very versitile.

Lady Ferguson: I'm going to St Moritz tommorrow.
HRH the Queen: Wear the fox hat.
Lady Ferguson: Oh, its in Switzerland !
