I know there is a language filter and stuff and I got no problem with that. Just one thing I was wondering...I could have sworn the word d*mn was allowed for the longest time, but today when I was posting something and used that word it turned out like this: ****

has this been added to the list of things not to say? is this really even offensive at all to anybody? no offense, just wondering...

Yeah, I don't see the purpose of disabling swearing at all really. For the most part we are just a bunch of guys sitting around talking about cars :p, what is really the purpose of having any words disabled. If somebody wants to say sh1t they will just spell it like that or D4MN like that. f*ck, etc.... what is the point of making it difficult :rolleyes:

Well, I want my forums to be clean. I am a Christian and I really don't want filth on my forums...Many, including me find profanity offensive. I am sure, that out of more than 1000 members, I am not the only person who doesn't want it. The purpose is that I want my forums to be professional b/c they may be a business opportunity for me in the future. I dont' think the people who want the profanity will find it offensive if I disable it. May find it hard to swallow, but these are my rules. Thankyou for your cooperation.

But the word D4MN? That seems like taking it a little too far man. What worse if someone types that word, and it comes out like this: **** people are going to think it was a much much worse 4 letter word.

BTW what Avatar is that? Looks like a flashing playboy bunny, lmao... :D

I agree FutureX with you on that one. I have no problem with everything else that is blocked...but for the word [email protected] showing up as **** doesn't make too much sense.

Plus, isn't the word [email protected] supposed to be a clean way to express frustration or disbelief instead of saying sh*t or other four letter words?

heh, well back to the original topic, not DMB, what bout the word D*mn??? Why not a vote or something? You replied earlier about keeping the forum clean and that's great, but how do you feel specifically about that word?

Now that my son is back from school, I have had the opportunity to listen to all the Dave Matthews CDs, and I rescind the above statement.
Rescind? What does that mean? All I know is that Dave is the man...Amazing rhythm guitarist and singer...(Watch videos of him and look how he dances/sings/plays, all perfectly simultaneously...

rescind mean he retract his previous statement of DMB sound like sting.

I also retract the give me a call when you get there and the :rolleyes: smiley.

I find the DMB to be excellent, I hadn't listened closely to their work before. I understand why they have a fanatical following- it's warranted.

Sorry for veering the thread off the track, DaTimez420. Didn't even think about your user name till I typed it. ;)
Actually, veering off track to talk about DMB is permitted on my forums..They are my favorite band, just as important as legend discussion:)
