When you go to a person's house, do you curse up a storm if they don't care for it? I imagine you respect their wishes and the lifestyle they live while in their home.
I'm all for personal freedoms. And obviously I've vouched for it a bunch in discussions on this board. But I also recognize that it's their site and if they want it run a certain way, it's their prerogative even if I'm not crazy about it.
House rules, and that sort of thing.

Another forum I frequent and moderate at uses PG-13 as its language standard. That site has a short list of profanities in its banned-word filter. (If you've watched enough PG-13 and above movies, you can probably guess which words you'd never hear in a PG-13.) As a moderator there, my rule of thumb for language is to allow anything that isn't on the banned-word list, as long as it's not a veiled profanity meant to circumvent the banned-word list.
Honestly, it'd be easier to moderate with a tighter standard than PG-13, like RedsZone has. Too many "edgy" words at the other place tend to be aimed at other members. That makes the other place less friendly at times.
