PostSubject: Use of the "N" word... and other words too   Thu Nov 14, 2013 2:48 pm

Pretty much copied from another thread...

The "N" word is offensive to many and doesn't have to be used here... whether it is your word or quoted speech or text.

If the use of the word must be represented, be creative, such as:  N*****, "N" word.  It shows that the N word was used, but recognizes that it is offensive and was changed for propriety.

Even so, if a creative use were used in a personal attack here (such as a poster directly calling another poster an "effing Ni***") I would step in and do my job as moderator.

I don't mind PMs that point me toward anything offensive or possibly offensive on the forum.  

We don't want to stifle expression... after all, this IS a forum... we just don't want to offend people by using obviously offensive words like the N-word, the F-word, and the C-word.  We DO allow words like shit and bitch as long as they aren't part of a personal attack.  

To avoid an all-out Wild West situation, a line must be drawn somewhere.
