There's one mod here who won't be tidying up if you use a word in it's innocent context, but expect no mercy for any intentional profanities. In my book 'swear filters' or whatever is the current term for them are just profanity highlighters. I caused howls of laughter in a staff meeting when I put up on the screen a transcript of the Principal's end of term address with plenty of strategically placed asterisks. My proposal to turn the filter off but implement an acceptable use policy with strong guidelines as to what was not acceptable went through on the nod.
Wise words John. I'll take this off-topic a little, but words are just words. Its the intention behind them that needs to be considered. We all know what is being censored in this thread and I don't think I'm speaking too far out of turn by saying no-one seems too bothered by it. However, if I said that those all those in Scotland are cocks, then I'm sure it would cause offence and i would be quite rightly slapped down.
Anyway, back to the topic. Is the P2 due for release anytime soon?
I'll let that one through, this time, as I'm sure any Scots will understand it was just an example.
