Folks... a few words on unacceptable language
13

After having to edit a number of posts today to remove disguised words that would otherwise be unacceptable from posts, a reminder on the forum rules seems to be in order.

The last paragraph of rule 6 of the DPR Forum Rules make it pretty clear that simply disguising unacceptable words is not permitted. We've been relatively lax in enforcing this, but it's also gotten to the point where I felt a reminder was needed. Going forward, expect less latitude and there's a decent likelihood that this could result in deletions, bans, or other Mod actions. You don't need to resort to unacceptable language to make your point.

A reminder of the specific DPR Forum rule that covers this:

Rule 6:

Be civil. Anyone being rude, abusive, calling names or generally trying to stir up trouble will not be tolerated. If you think someone is wrong it may be because they are new. Don't jump on them, think first. If you are repeatedly abusive you will be banned from these forums. Specific behavior that will not be tolerated and will result in post removal / banning includes:

  • Bashing: Deliberately and repeatedly bashing the same brand, product orcompany. If you have a complaint or comment to make, make it once and make sure you have facts to support it.
  • Flaming: Insulting, abusive, malicious, personal attacks.
  • Trolling: Deliberately antagonizing other forum users by posting 'flame bait.'
  • Swearing: Using profanity (or changing characters to bypass our profanity filters)

Bottom line, please make your point and avoid mixing in disguised expletives or else risk significant editing of your post or possible Moderator action, including bans.

Thanks in advance...
