As most have seen I refrain from using the dirtest of words although d a m n and h e l l I sometimes use. Anyway, in another thread it was explained by the Admin. that the dirty word filter was something that came with this program and it was implied there was nothing that could be do to change that and the diry word filter is here courtesy of the program developers. I have been recently visiting another, very, very similar site, and, in fact it's powered by vBullletin but man do they use the four letter words and some really down and dirty talk. I sure don't want to see terrible language used by a site visited by the softer and gentler gender or by young children or young teenagers. BUT, now, I'm curious. Is it the program or not ....knowing another site uses the same program? I bring this issue up NOT to stir crap up but I come from the old school and I have this need to know who 'tells it like it is' or has a personal agenda. In other words I sure don't want smoke blown up my butt and then be told I'm standing too near the camp fire, LOL. PS>>>I just KNOW the ADMIN is gonna take this post wrong. I just want to know to compare to what I was told by the moderators at the other site.
