The reason that we did that was due to the fact that some of the members here have children, and from time to time their children like to surf BC....

we had a lot of issues with cursing for some time... we finally decided to use the sensor...

I sort of look at it this way, when we type a word Like **** <---- It will be sensored...

Say you had a kid brother or young child, maybe 12 years old, would you want him saying F' This F' that... B****.... He may not learn it here and I'm sure he'll Throw some colorful words around sooner or later... But we felt as we were family oriented it would be a good thing...lol

I guess I am on the other end of the spectrum, as adults I don't see the need to swear, in text or verbally. Leave the curse words for when you smash your thumb with a hammer.

I look at it as an aid to increase my vocabulary. Some days I find it hard not to curse, but whenever in a family situation or around young ones I don't curse. Undoubtedly they will learn it and use it, they don't need to learn it from me though.
