    Posting it would be a violation

    Basically its anything from off color all the way up to profanity.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Or maybe in the '40's. Saying the word 'damn' was still a big deal in the '30's.

    It was a big deal up through the 60's according to my dad. Using the word "damn" or "hell" (or worse words) got yourself smacked right upside the head resulting in a very fast trip to the floor and a very stern warning that such language is not acceptable. It took once for me to learn that lesson.

    Its all where darn and heck and gol durn and god bless america became part of my lexicon.

    Re: What is edgy language?

    I guess my question has to do with masked profanity. I have seen some if it accepted, and some censored. If I could get a PM from a Mod explaining what is acceptable and what is not, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Re: What is edgy language?

    I can hopefully clarify this briefly: words like "damn" and "hell" are fine, provided they're in the context of a sentence and not just saying them to say them. Most of the other traditional cuss words are not allowed and at least some of them will be censored if you try to type them. As was stated above, masking any of these words is also prohibited.

    Just for my own clarification, not that I plan on cursing much in posts, but I just want to know the rules, what exactly is "masking?" **I have seen plenty of post that simply replace certain letters in curse words with %$# and such. **Is that forbidden? *Did those just slip through?
    What about purposefully misspelling a word, or using a word that looks like it, but everyone knows what it really is meant to be? **I'm just not 100% on what "masking" is. **

    Thanks, I appreciate any response. **

    I would say all of the above, and yes, they can and do slip through. Acronyms that represent the first letters of such words are also not permitted.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    What macro said - plainly evading the word censors by replacing a character (or characters) in order to type out the prohibited word.
