The No Offensive Language Rule

Posted by JeffSmith on December 31, 2006, at 9:49:56

Hey Everyone... Im new and I dont know if this is the appropriate forum for this but Ill try it here anyway.
I despise being censored and told which words I can and cannot use like a child... but I play nice by the rules.
Ive noticed the following things, not just on this message board but elsewhere as well:
Posting "foul/Offensive" words is prohibited HOWEVER as long as you post the word leaving just one letter out and replacing it with a * then it seems perfectly acceptable.
I find this to be absurdly ridiculous: If the words F*ck, Sh*t, C*ck, C*nt, etc, are written then EVERYONE who's not blind can obviously see exactly what the words still say... nobody's being fooled into thinking its not the same exact "offensive" word it was before a letter was removed from it. So if anyones offended by the full spelling of the words then wouldnt they be just as equally offended by the words not so cleverly disguised by that stupid asterisk?
It really seems completely illogical, unless Im just missing the logical point entirely?
Any thoughts on this matter?
