Forum Rules, #2 under Conduct.

This rule is:
Quote
Vulgarities are forbidden on this forum.  You are not "in person" here, so you have time to compose and edit your thoughts. Please exercise that ability.

This already represents a stricter rule against profanity than the way it was originally phrased.  At first, the rule was to avoid profanity.  Enough posters showed a lack of prudence in this area that the rule was changed. 

As we can see, a stricter rule has not stopped vulgarity on the forum.  Certain people will write this way unless they are forced to stop.

Oh fuck off.

What a disgrace. I have tougher friends than you that never curse. But somehow its a badge of honour to swear on this forum.

For a forum where something like 75% of ya claim to be Irish, to one degree or another, there sure is a lot of pushback on the language.

And swearing rarely has to do with being 'tough'

Exactly.

Swearing has nothing to do with toughness and everything to do with a darkened heart.

Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, lust, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is the service of idols. For which things the wrath of God cometh upon the children of unbelief, in which you also walked some time, when you lived in them. But now put you also all away: anger, indignation, malice, blasphemy, filthy speech out of your mouth. (Col. 3:5-8)

Check mate Irish.

Thanks Vetus. Sorry Diaduit.

I think there needs to be a rule against attacking another's "mental" state/character.  In an age of feminism, I guess there is no sting to being called cold hearted and the like, so trolls don't seem to attack in this way.  But, there is an endless number of attacks on the mental state.  Basically, I am in favor of forbidding the accusation that another member is "mentally ill" explicit(and maybe implicit).  It is getting very tired, but it still seems to be the go-to insult.  It just another behavior to add to the list of bad behaviors that are common place here on SD.  How are we going to attract quality members when cursing and slander is the norm?
