We have an automatic censor and moderators to remove swearing. If you try to get around the censor in some way, you will get a warning. If you continued to use offensive language, yes, you could be banned.

That's a strange question, don't you think? Have you read the rules yet?

This is a family oriented forum, so swearing is not permitted.

If you represent yourself in a respectful manner that is how others' will see you.

Since we were on a topic of how to represent ourselves, I thought I'd bring this up.

By whatever name the rose must be called, the situation was quite uplifting.
Yes, yes, I agree that the message of the story was wonderful. It's funny that you post this message now, when I need it most. I need to look forward, not back.

That's very interesting. I'm also hesitant to "label" races because some people take offense. I'm white...I'm caucasian...I don't care. But there are some people that do and it's good that you voice your opinion on it.

it's always a gamble on forums, in terms of pointing things out like this. i didn't want this thread to turn into a flame war, but i think most people on this forum are genuinely friendly and i knew something like that wouldn't happen--so i took a gamble. most of the time, i dont' say anything on forums because i'm afraid of what will happen.

It was kind of you to remind us. I think we all want to use the correct term.

Your right there are alot of good people on this forum. I would have been surprised if you got a negative reaction. Except for the mods of course you have to be real careful with them. They can get really mean, send you to the corner, send bad IM's, just be really careful when there watching, oh, and they have eyes and ears every whereas I was saying everybody's really cool here...
