Watch it. I'm stretching the wheelbase on my short buss as soon as possible.

And on a serious note for this thread. You all are right about the cussing. I have probably been a little lax myself about it and have dropped some f bombs on occasion. I'll be better about it.

There are times in life when a simple darn just ain't going to cut it. Also, it doesn't make someone unintelligent if they use profanity. I can assure you that I can clearly and most definately express myself in a manner appropriate to any given situation. Swear words are as creative and expressive as any other... just not always appropriate.

...and using them doesn't make a person any more or less intelligent that someone else.

No it doesn't but it has the tendency to make you APPEAR to be less intelligent.

Not to me... I believe profanity is overrated. I can "make a sailor blush" or can be in complete restraint depending on my surroundings. If you are one of my buddies you will hear more than my parents, for instance.

At some point, a profane word is the only thing that adequately describes what you are feeling. Using a harsh word as an adjective to express feelings is hardly a way to make someone appear less intelligent.

Who do you feel more for.. someone that said they had a bad day or someone that said they had an fckd up day? To me, there is a distinction worth acknowledgment.

I curse, and I curse a lot.. however, I will match my wits (and internet searching abilities) against anyone. Intelligence and cursing, has nothing to do one with the other.

I think we have the best administrators I have seen on any forum car related or not. But we have to do our part to help them by keepin the language cleaned up and just trying to be cool with people.

"Cant we all just get along?"
Wait, you drive a STOCK TJ? And we haven't been harassing you!? Scout, get to work!!!

I can cuss with the best of 'em and have gone through phases of my life were I couldn't say a sentence without adding profanity. I must have reached the stage stated on MOG's Mom plaque - I don't feel it adds/emphasizes anything I may have to say.

If I told you I felt like my bone marrow was sucked out through a cocktail straw......I think you'd know I had a bad f----- day. Plus you might get a little chuckle at the mental picture it may have evoked.

yes, I am the language police and will continue....to all: don't be offended if I edit your post (I've always sent you a pm notification)

I'll give you one good example that everyone on this forums knows to be true...Debruins likes to be lazy when he types. Someone who does not know him see's this and will usually assume that he is either lazy, unintelligent, or both. Now, if I **edit** cussed, after every **edit** word, all the time and **edit** never **edit** made a **edit** intelligent **edit** post, then I think most **edit** people would start to **edit** question my **edit** intelligence.

I had my mouth washed out with Bar soap everytime I used a cuss word. I still flinch when one slips from my mouth now. Ahhh....the good old days when parents were able to punish their own children without the Government getting involved.

I'd like to go on the record with this. I'm not a puritan. I'm sure my kids have heard all the "words", and even know what some of them mean and how to use them in a sentence (I have & I do). But in my house, they will not hear them from me.
I appreciate that some people still have some restraint in how high their level of vulgar can get.
There are plenty of sites where one can get as cheap, mean, and harsh as one wants. Why push this site to that level ?
On the other hand, this is a free country. And one is free to express one's self in any manner one sees fit. As long as one doesn't force-feed it to another.
This site can go in whatever direction the Admins see fit. Everyone is free to come & go as they like.
Also, I'm not calling anyone unintelligent. I just posted the moral creedo that I was raised with, which is the reason I don't see a need to cuss. I ain't your momma/daddy. Nor am I your personal censor.

In my experience (and study), I have come to realize that the Internet allows people to say whatever they want without the fear of reprisal. In addition, maturity and common sense are not traits that many people feel they need to use online. When dealing with public forums, it is typically up to the forum administrators, moderators, and general forum base to set the tone for new members. For instance, pirate board moderators and admin's may feel that their current level of behavior is tolerable and acceptable; whereas wrangler forum admin's may feel that, it is not. Neither is particularly wrong, but it is up to the new member to correctly gauge the appropriate responses given the level of acceptable behavior on a specific forum. Some new members either refuse to acclimate themselves to the new environment or do not notice there is a need to do so. Many times a warning is simply enough to change the behavior, and in other cases, different measures have to be employed. Regardless, when inappropriate behavior is allowed to continue, it disrupts the general atmosphere of the forum and may create tension and resentment, resulting in one of two things: change or stagnation. The change usually indicates that a new level of acceptability occurs. Stagnation is typically the worst-case scenario in which members who do not agree with the new level of behavior decide to leave. I hope that neither scenario happens here.

I'm trying

I curse in public too, something of which my fiancee does not care for, especially if there are children around. I try to control myself for her in public, but if someone has their kid(s) at the bar watching MNF, those kids are going to hear something "slip". Sports bars with lots of alcohol is no place for kids!

other site

This site is more family friendly than the other site I'm on from time to time,if it wasn't for the few friends I have on it, I wouldn't even go back.there are a lot of bad examples on that site and a lot reason way it gets harder and harder to find a place to wheel,I've seen people planning to go wheeling where they know it's illegal to ride!They rude and crude to everybody and just plan nasty to any Lady that tries to join,I think there are 2 or3 women on the site. There are post on there that I posted months ago the site is is dying and I don't think I could save it if I tried.If you want to see how bad it is PM me and I'll give the address of the site,but I don't really want to hurt the site for the few good ones that are still there,I thought about telling them about this site,but I don't want to drag the bad ones on to this site.
