Use of profane language seems to be making it into our forum on a regular basis.

My fiance and one of my friends wife used to visit the site on a regular basis. We used to have a little better monitoring of profane language and sexual innuendos. Both of these women were talking the other day and refuse to go out here to read our posts any longer.

There seems to be some disrespectful young punks out here that need to grow up.

IMO some form of this warning should be reitterated at the top of the forum just as a reminded that there are some mature professionals out here. I talk to building contractors on a regular basis as part of my job, and don't even hear thsi kind of trash trash out of their mouths.

We can put up with the ghetto verbaige and poor spelling. but the nastiness we can do without.......

...and this isn't a faux-pas?

BTW, most of the folks on here ARE professional... so let's not get all 'Well, my friends from the Hamptons don't talk like this..."

in my experience ceo's and professionals use profanity infinitely more than blue collar workers. I have worked construction building pools and jackhammering down chimneys and they didn't swear half as much as the owner of my company who has a masters degree.

go back to church.

Respect your opinion and I agree with you to a certain extent, but I also realize this is an internet forum - it pretty much goes with the territory, so it doesn't bother me too much.

I agree with BBsAcuraRacing... the use profanity seems to be increasing, becoming excessive. When I joined the group back in January, the use profanity was much less frequent.

I would much rather deal with swearing the ghetto talk and shitty grammar.

Yes there are some younger people on the board that use bad language in horrid taste, that goes along with bad grammar.

But I'll watch my mouth when it needs to be watched and I dont think this place is one those "watch my language" places.

Freedom to express myself is why I am on this site & not others.

If you are here for technical advise, you should have no problem with the language in that forum. But...if you are here for personal entertainment(ie: Ramblings, Relationship Forums) then this language comes with the territory.

And...foul language doesn't make everyone who uses it a "young punk" or disrespectful. That sounds like a class assumption being made solely on your part.

With freedom comes personal responsibility and good judgment. When neither are exercised, freedom turns into anarchy.

Car Rental Agent: I really don't care for the way you're speaking to me.

Neal Page: And I really don't care for the way your company left me in the middle of fucking nowhere with fucking keys to a fucking car that isn't fucking there. And I really didn't care to fucking walk down a fucking highway and across a fucking runway to get back here to have you smile at my fucking face. I want a fucking car RIGHT FUCKING NOW!

Car Rental Agent: May I see your rental agreement.

Neal Page: I threw it away.

Car Rental Agent: Oh boy.

Neal Page: Oh boy what?

Car Rental Agent: You're fucked!

Well ok so there is some cursing and the language borders on questionable at times BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT it is the internet and I am sure you curse too .I am a professional too and I curse though not much here but if the language offends come to my job for a few days , there are things said here that even my calloused eardrums are astounded to hear out of"grown ups" .This place is mild .
