    how about getting rid of the swear filter? facebook doesnt have it so the "children" and "delicate ears" excuse seems an out dated one to me. i dont swear very often and if i do its to emphasis a point and not to be rude to people. we do have admins after all...

    saying that, i do quite like the (**filtered***) being flagged as swearing, made me laugh that :D

    Sorry but I totally disagree with you. Its totally unnecessary to swear on any thread on this forum and it is not Facebook. You may think the children and delicate ears excuse isnt relevant but I certainly don't want my children exposed to any more swearing than necessary and don't particularly want or need to read it myself on this forum.

    Swear filter stays, no need to swear on a family forum.

    Get it all off your chest on Facebook then come on here :thumbup1:

    I like the swear filter as other say its not needed on forums there is to much of it these days. I go on another forum and there swear filter wont let you say saltwater as the 3rd 4th 5th and 6th letter spell a swear word which makes me laugh as you cant write saltwater. chris

    Totally agree if you can't get your point / opinion accross without swearing then maybe you should enroll for English lessons.

    you missed my point a bit, as i said before, i very rarely swear and if i do, its not to get anything off my chest and if i did then it wouldnt be here or facebook or anywhere else online. maybe the pub? lol. my point is that none of my friends on facebook swear either, but theres no swear filter?

    im not saying we should all start swearing at each other :lol: my point is that we are all mature enough to not need it and that it only kicks in when we dont need it. and when people want to swear they just type something like 5hit or something. so whats the point?
