Acceptable swear words..... Can't Post or Reply Privately

Seeing as Richard Rundle got his knickers (or should that be underpants?) in a twist over the use of 'sod off' where can we draw the line on what/cannot be used on the forum?

I would have thought only the 'f' and the 'c' word were strictly off limits, other than that I guess it depends upon the context in which any word is used and whether it is accompanied by a smileyWink

And as I posted on another thread, some people take this messageboard stuff far too seriously. Not that I'm advocating a complete free for all you understand. I just think so much of what is posted is blown up out of all proportion. For example if we ban the phrase 'sod off' do we also ban 'bloody hell'? I personally didn't take offence at Gareth using the phrase and I think it's preferable to him sending abusive PM's using the 'f' and 'c' words.

In my view each post has to be judged on its merits based on content, context and the relationship between the posters concerned. Having met people like Mishi, Runwell, Richiejenn, Hoddy, Youngster and Fleetfan if I'm having a pop at them they know it's in jest. But you'll almost always get someone not involved with the dialogue between said posters who takes it upon themselves to complain to the mods when I think they should leave it to the posters concerned. After all, if one poster has a problem with another it should be up to them to complain to the mods shouldn't it?

Also, I realise we could use the PM facility for contentious posts but what's contentious to one poster wouldn't be to another so again it's all down to interpretation. Besides, if it's a third party taking offence then the problem is surely with them.

None of us want to go down the route most other forums have trodden with their sometimes unrestrained abuse, but to go to the other extreme and over sanitise contributions would in my opinion make the forum as boring as the alternative is unsavoury.

So do I Isaac. Others have a different opinion of course as is their wont. It's a small example of the diversity that makes the forum so interesting.

Anything that is intended in an aggressive manner towards any other poster.

But it's not always as simple as that is it? An example would be a thread some years ago in which Youngster, APL and a couple of other posters were having a pop at each other and someone not directly involved in the discussion complained to the mods. What they didn't know was these guys have known each other for years and it was all in jest so rather than posters interfere why can't they just leave it to those involved to either sort it out or complain to the mods?

Re: [UKPunk] Acceptable swear words..... [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I find the level of discussion and behaviour on here very high but obviously there are times when people get up my nose. The thing I get cross with most is people deliberately misunderstanding what I've said, or at least, rather than asking for clarification on something, slagging the whole post off. This winds me up not only because it's childish and rude but also because it breaks up a perfectly interesting debate. I don't claim to be any saint but I try to ask questions when I think something doesn't add up, not just judge it as complete nonsense. It's invariably the case that if something seems to be nonsense then you are missing something.

Re: [cope1] Acceptable swear words..... [In reply to] Can't Post or

As I get older I try not to swear, football would be a far better if swearing on the field and in the dug-outs was cut out. So in our own little way if we refrain from using rude words it may help. As an aside I just turn off the so called comedians who swear every other word when doing their act or on a panel show. You can be funny without swearing it is a shame modern life was no racier or rude than a Donald McGill postcard or a Max Miller routine

But it can be funny. Try 'Ullo John, Gotta New Motor? (Part 4) by Alexei Sayle. Probably the swearyist song that's ever been recorded. I won't put a link on here but it is available on Youtube. For those interested, make sure you search for part 4. There were four different versions recorded.

I'm with you there. I find in comedy it is the refrain of those who can't figure out how else to get a laugh and on a football pitch it tends to be the refrain of those who don't really have anything useful to say, but want to be seen to be full blooded. When I played I often ended up doing a lot of the talking and swearing, I found, was a quick way to lose people's attention. Even if they don't realise it - and even if they disagree with what I've just written - I find people don't take you as seriously if you swear a lot. They might jump to it the first couple of times because of the shock but once they get used to it they don't take any notice.

Many forums are unreadable because of the mindless clutter of infants using naughty words.

Mind you in some circumstances the absence of swearing can be amusing. I think it was a visiting Grantham Town central defender who, when receiving an adverse decision from the Ref coupled with lots of abuse from the home support, responded with a very loud "Oh, goodness gracious me" which brought loud laughter and applause from the crowd. Cool

I don't think you'd like Junior football in Scotland. Even the refs are known to swear at the players.

Currently, most of the generally unacceptable adjectives I've been drawn into using when out and about, have preceded the word "snow". Frown
