Wayne, you may have tried to do a bit of joking irony with your deleted post
But you cant use such words
And it was bad irony

Besides, its no big deal, and no need to call for a "head mod", even though Cal may be one

Yes, it is.

Though not as bad as some other places.

Over at HeadFi for example, you can't use asterisks (i.e. "****") or even the old comic book "!@#$%."

That's considered "implied profanity"

Oh yeah, and any mention of drugs or anything having to do with drugs is prohibited as well. Including any mention of them in song titles or lyrics. So if anyone asks you what your favorite Clapton song is, you'd better not answer "Cocaine." Of that your favorite Smashmouth song is "Stoned."

Though there was a time here when even the word "crap" was prohibited* and the Nanny Filter would convert it to asterisks. That seems to have changed (either that or they forgot to add it to the Nanny Filter) so perhaps there is some hope for the future.

Personally I don't believe in "bad words." I think the whole notion is highly irrational and hypocritical. But it's their sandbox, so they're free to set whatever rules they want, no matter how silly they may be.

*The reason given for this was that in Australia, the word "crap" was considered to be even more offensive than its synonym that begins with the letter "s." However I'd asked many Ozzies about this since being told about it and not one of them has confirmed it.

What rule was broken and why were you not moderate, instead of heavy handed ?


1. you took out my whole post for what, a word violation , a sentence ?

2. I was never notified of any rule violation

3. Sad and very disrespectful IMO, by deleting my post , if there were rule violations, where are these rules ...

The closest thing to rules they have here are in the Terms of Service agreement.

Prohibited behaviour includes harassing or causing distress or inconvenience to any other user, transmitting obscene or offensive content or disrupting the normal flow of dialogue within our website.

Pretty squidgy and allows quite a lot of wiggle room for moderators.

Man, that's pretty much the "normal flow of dialogue" around here
