It often comes down to the reports we moderators receive. If someone complains to us that you're inciting problematic responses by your use of the word "terd", then it might not be OK. If nobody complains, then "terd" (or even "turd") might fly.

Yikes, boys...

If you want FREE speech, start your own forum or build a soap box and spend your days on a street corner. If you choose to voice your opinions at cfl.ca, know that the people in charge may censor what you say. They are paying the bills so, like it or not, they have the final say.

Again, don't take it personally. If you get censored, be an adult, and let it go.

Not having double standards is very important. This board was rife with them back in 2010 which prompted me to stop posting. Since I started again a couple weeks ago it's drastically improved from the dictatorship it was then..... 8)

Ok PTBO, derogatory personal statements directly aimed at a poster could be considered fine. Got it. Okey dokey.

Oh Earl.... If you see something offensive, report it - and if someone reports you or me, we won't take it personally. A win-win.

Overall, we have a pretty good forum - with good posters and mods.

Are there jack-asses, who don't fit in, and can't get along with anyone? Of course. There are always at least 1 or 2 in every forum.

Do we all need a little time away from cfl.ca, from time to time? Again, yes.

Still, it's pretty good, and, like I said, we have a good crew... so just enjoy it and don't take the occasional censor personally.

...it's not slander if it's true...


ROTFLMHO

Too funny R&W. Too funny. :lol:

Aerial...

Just a small point... "It's turd, not terd". :wink:

And quite honestly, given the way some folks spell I would have immediately thought you were referring to R&W as a "turrdull".... you know those reptiles that move so very slowly but somehow end up winning the race.

Yep, exactly.
Some of my posts have been deleted, and others, the wording has been changed for a more "Little House On The Prairie" effect. I really don't care. I've got bigger fish to fry.
As for insults from other posters ... I take them as well as dish them out. Again, I really don't care.

I do notice that some raw sewage does bypass the filtration plant.
