There's a difference between swearing outright at someone, and calling something what it is.

But I never swear at anyone? I don't think any of us do, because thats obviously wrong.

New rules are confusing.

You were complaining because I said 'posting'. I explained that it's just calling it what it is.

I don't think there's anything that isn't clear

I guess what Shaun is saying is that the new rules don't exactly make sense as nobody really swears at anyone else. These "bad words" are usually just used to describe something and typically in a positive way. Unless I've missed some heated argument of course

Don't swear - it's as simple as that.

End of discussion.

Yes, and I'm not accusing Shaun of doing that

It's more for clarification as it used to be very strict in the forums, despite Tom's language in videos, it got slacked off a bit and regular posters started cursing a lot more, warnings were sent, and ignored so.. the belt has been re-tightened and the rules clarified to make it easier for the mods to enforce. The rules were slightly more 'wooly' before meaning it was hard to really enforce for the mods. This, should no longer be the case.

Ah alright. I didn't really know about how everything was before as I only came here fairly recently. Seems fair enough though

Glad to clarify It's better this way, it's clean and clear and will make the forums more mature again.

That's fine The forums changes and evolves a lot of the years! It used to be ultra strict!! I think I got a warn and temp ban waaaaaaaay back when I first got here for swearing. I was happy when it eased off initially, and I'll freely admit I swear a lot (and a lot in RL) but I think this place is far better without it in all honesty

The rules are cool, I don't mind but I may accidentally slip up at times as this thread gets a bit older just please don't kill us if we do, only if its a constant thing. :P
