Agreed. I think in this case not cursing is the equivalent of wiping your shoes on the doormat before you enter someone's home. We all wish we didn't have to do it sometimes but imagine if after you've left the house the home owner's wife had to spend time cleaning the foot steps you tracked in? All because you thought not wiping your feet was a "personal freedom" or because you and the boys don't wipe your feet etc etc. In that same way, the moderator's shouldn't be using their time to edit your posts after you've done posting. A little respect goes a long way and it also helps ensure that you'll be invited back again to the house, I'm sure there are a lot of guests outside on the street who'd love to take your spot and that's why we all come over and play nice and use respect and I think at the end of the day the home owner reserves the right to lock his doors, but so far he's left them open and we all get to benefit. Beside how many home owner's do you know who will invite you in and give you your own forum to give feedback about how he runs his home? What are we all complaining about?
