Please remember that if you replace a ‘bad’ word with **** and other caracters it still is a ‘bad’ word!!!
Ask yourself if you would like your 6 year old grand-daughter to read it! I certainly wouldn’t, and if you don’t have one here is what one looks like!
A good point well made Uki. I have been guilty. It won’t happen again.
I have one of those
she calls me grandad fatty
would you like her as a present !!!
No thanks have 3 of my own plus the male version, that’s enough to keep me on my toes
I just replied to another thread where I used a parody of the common phrase 'Tight as a duck’s Ae’.
When I submitted it it appeared as ‘a duck’s bottom’.
We seem to have some sort of censorship going on here.
I hate swearing but I do not consider the word ae in reference to a backside to be a swear word.
Can someone please explain why Big Brother is now running this forum?
+1 on that David. The only difference is that I don’t mind swearing at all. How I treat others is far more important to me.

This system has been in place since the forum was started, it is not something new. If you read the forum rules http://www.motoguzziclub.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=82&t=26263&sid=df806ee4026190a387783f42a0a593b7 it states that “You must maintain a level of civility and politeness.”
If you disagree with this you will have to take it up with the committee or at the AGM (if there is one this year) it is no good complaining on here as (read further on in the rules) “The web team reserve the right to remove any threads and messages that are excessively critical of the…” the sentence is cut short but you get the idea. Do not be critical of the web team!
In fact someone from the web team needs to read the forum rules as there are a few cases where words are missing which make them a little odd.
I will look into this. Including the rules and what is allowed and what not, I had made a start on this but it somehow fell by the wayside.
Now swearing etc. I personally don’t like it at all, weather verbal or written, but what each of us considers swearing will differ very much, so will look into that as well to try and make most of us happy.
Uki I totally agree regarding the swearing. Maybe I’m just such a old geezer but it seems the “ f “ word in particular has become a word used in everyday language - at least over here where I am ( U.S. ). Alright for the young un’s but leave it for when around person mates. Just my two pennoth.
