cool maybe that will be a start to eliminating all things offensive from the internet and our lives. can we still  say  words that offend people far more than obsenities?  like GET A JOB U BUM    or  LEARN ENGLISH U ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT

In fact many many people have made the ultimate sacrifice so you "can" voice your opinion. Glad to have you here and I hope you enjoy the stay!!!!
Wow. Great uncle, Grandfather, Dad, Uncle, have and are serving. So I don't think I need to be told how lucky I am to be able to discuss something. I have no intention of starting problems. I was just talking from the other side of the fence on the issue.

I think the answer is in your avatar, plus this is a business as has been stated before. Some people do get offended by content and if you are that way and see it in a business you just may not buy from them. Unlike Pirate where the only thing they are selling is their board. Though it may affect their sponsers.

The main reason is that this board is not just that but it is also a business and some customers may be offended by profanity, nudity or other unacceptable acts. If you owned a business would you like it if someone came in cussing and swearing chasing even one customer out the door. That's pretty much the reason in a nutshell.
Them was the rules when you signed up...thems the rules now.

Besides the business part of it...there are chi'rens here.

x2.  couldn't have said it better myself.  this is the main reason why I like the marlin board.  when people get on and talk as if they have the vocabulary of a 16 y.o., it gets irritating. I avoid the pirate board this for exact reason.

For every post there is a link to report anything you feel needs a moderators attention, they will get the individual post in question to decide if it is inappropriate for the board.

Outside of what I take care of I reserve clicking for major stuff like porn or spam, other than that unless someone is attacking another person I let it ride. Everyone needs some :popcorn: every now and then. :gap:

There is a way to voice your opinion without talking or acting like a 16 year old.  I'm not understanding why this is even an issue when it written out so clear.  This is a family forum as mentioned before.  If you feel the need to cuse up a storm, using #$%* or whatever else you use to get around the sensor, you should probably be posting on pirate where no one cares.  keep up with it, and you'll dig yourself a pretty good size hole on this forum.

It's been said, but maybe not clear or simple enough for you to understand.  This is the board FOR MARLIN CRAWLER INC., the business.  It doesn't exist so you can post whatever you want.  It's main purpose is to showcase what they have, what can and has been done with their parts, and as a customer service tool. 

Your opinions are just those, your opinions.  You're making something out of nothing.  They don't get mad at the occassional :pokinit: or damn, though the f-bomb doesn't go over well.  If you can't get your opinion across without using constant profanity, you should perhaps enroll in some night school classes  :thumbs:

If I ran a business, especially one based largely off a website that had a public message board, I would definitely want to keep the message board clean and respectable. I've got a mouth like a sailor but I try and keep it cool on these boards out of respect for Marlin and Company and the image I know they want for their employees and company. Its not so much about that we are all grown adults and can handle it, as it is about respect.  :twocents:

The above post is the member agreement that you accept when you first create an account on this forum.  It is here for your future reference.  Below is another good thread from an admin regarding the expected use of language:

http://board.marlincrawler.com/index.php?topic=4270.0

Included in these notes about cursing, an important point to remember is that there are censors in place to catch curse words that do "slip out" from time to time.  For this reason, it is preferred that the actual word be typed so the censor can pick it up for those who do not wish to see it.  Purposely misspelling a curse word is considered "skirting the censors" and is not permitted.

These are the guidelines that our forum moderators rule by.  Thanks for listening, and please enjoy your stay.  :thumbs:
:slap:
this isn't even worth trying to discuss with someone like you.   :thumbsup:

Sir, I might point out that this thread was started by a board ADMIN.  Not just a member, not even a mod....the Administrator.  This is a board rule that is not up for discussion.  I appreciate very much that you've not gone off on a profanity-riddled tirade about this, and your opinion has been heard.  But as has been stated time and time again, these are the rules of THIS particular forum.  Plain and simple.  We appreciate your participation, and all we ask is that everyone plays by these simple rules.  :thumbs:

So it is ok to come on the board and post whatever you please even though it is owned by someone else? Guess it is ok for me to come over to your house and post my vulgarities on the side of your house too then?
