I and all members appreciate very much your valuable participation. And I'm sure you can understand that "bad words" could undermine the high value of your thoughts.
I don't think that it is unreasonable to ask to avoid using 4 letter words. Written language does not have the nuances of spoken language and the 4 letter words sound offensive.
I suggest to avoid 4 letter words, especially when replying/referring to others. I would guess you'd be comfortable with this since generally in our everyday interactions (in the bank (no pun intended), the supermarket, our workplace, our family meetings, these words are not welcome. And we are a family friendly board.
In any case I decided to activate a 4 letter word filter. This way if you feel the real need to include such words in your posts, they will not be removed but instead instead some letter will be transformed to ***. So your meaning stays intact, yet the word is technically filtered. I believe this is a happy middle ground.
Thanks for your understanding. I believe you will help greatly the development of the forum not only with your extremely interesting posts, but also by respecting some basic rules. and I thank you for this.
PS:Now let's focus on our "enemy", the roulette wheel.
