Due to the vigorous exercise the profanity filters get, we've lost the use of that word. I'm now the proud owner of a music/performing site where the word "f u n k" can't be used, nor can I invite my family to read some of the posts.

STOP using the F word and STOP constructing ways to beat the profanity filter. It's not clever. It's vandalism.

I've cleaned up the posts yet AGAIN and programmed more restrictive censors. Here are the rules.

1. When I find the next post containing offensive language, I'll delete the post, no matter how long it was or what other information it contained.
2. The second offense will get the user banned.
3. If the site doesn't police itself, I'll pull the plug.

Being a potty-mouth on an Internet site doesn't make anyone more of a honcho. It only serves to influence decent people to head for a friendlier place. Though at the moment the loss of this place is infinitesimal, I'd rather do without than have my name associated with places like Gearslutz, or the other un-censored joints. Say anything you want to somebody in a private email or on the phone. That would be none of my business.

It's my site, my bandwidth, and my standards. With less than 50 posts, I've spent hours now figuring out that this might be more of a PITA than I care to deal with.

If you truly can't express yourself without crossing the line, then don't post. PM or email somebody instead.

On the plus side, my memory is too bad to hold a grudge. Make it stop, and I can quit censoring and reply to a post instead. That would make running this thing worthwhile.

As the co-star of our little corner of Brigadoon, let me state my absolute support of what Greg is saying. I'm deleting my earlier whiny f-bomb posts. My fave artist forums are censoring, and I like it. F u n k should be type-able. Thanks Greg and all! ("I'm a retard" ha ha real funny greg!) Laughing
