Once again

  Forum Editor 19:08 26 Sep 2003

it's necessary to remind some people that we will delete - without warning - any thread that contains unacceptable language, even though it may be disguised by asterisks or by using the first letter of unacceptable words.

When posting, imagine that you are addressing a hall full of thousands of people - of both sexes, and of mixed age - none of whom you've met before. If a word or phrase would be wrong in those circumstances then it will be wrong here.

We don't intend to allow our forum to go the way of many others when it comes to the use of bad language, so we'll be operating a zero tolerance policy. We understand that frustration with a computer or a supplier can fray tempers on occasion, but please remember where you are - this forum has a huge audience, and it's a family show.

Quite right, bad language = lack of vocabulary.

I agree::: bad language shows an inadequate vocabulary

Thanks for that, FE. If I see any you'll be the first to know! I blame the grandparents.

Thank you for keeping this forum principled and adult.

Bravo FE. Bad language should not be tolerated under any circumstance as should any thread which violates the conditions of the Site Policy.

Your right, i've seen some other forums that loose the plot in a torrent of bad language.... nasty and silly...

I like this forum the way it is...
