Preemptive Request...

Postby Speaker on Mon Nov 19, 2001 11:15 am

I should know but I don't know what Keenspaces rules for language on these boards are.... Now I, unlike most people in the U.S. have a very liberal view on language BUT as Kurt Vonegutt once said, bad language just gives other people one more excuse not to listen to you, so since the current paradigm of thought dictates that we rate things on language I would like to keep my site "G" or at least "PG" to keep the widest audience, so please watch the language unless it is being used for an intelectual discusion, i.e., why bad words are considered bad... Thanks :-)

I've seen most every example of bad language on these boards, so I think it's everything goes. <P>------------------

I know, I mean we are talking some bad language. Poor spelling, horrific grammer, and wrong word choice!<P>For example, the word 'decimate' is under constant abuse! It means 'to reduce by a tenth.' But it ends up being used to mean to destroy or demolish. I hear a sentence like, "I decimated him." I think, "What you mean you chopped of an arm or part of a leg?"<P>Take Care
