I can see where it can be confusing considering that some mdc members find the word butt offensive...so if we are supposed to go by what offends people then we all better start talking like we are in church or something,
Right. I mean, use some common sense. If you were in front of your grandma (though, I suppose it depends on the grandma - ;)) would you let a crap or damn or even sh*t slip occasionally? Maybe, but you probably wouldn't be dropping f-bombs in everyday conversation with her. Same at work, or as AM is saying, in a public location.
I happen to swear a lot IRL, but I know there is a time and place for it. I also happen to be able to curb that when on message boards or social networking sites (which may be b/c people like my mom are on FB, but ykwim).
I'm not getting why it all has to be clearly spelled out - use some tact. MDC is a parenting site, and even from lurking for 10 minutes one would realize that the board culture is not such that a ton of profanity is acceptable.
So someone asks you to edit. Big deal. It's not like they're saying if you use the "F-bomb" your first born will be confiscated.
