Did you understand that? Not too difficult, huh?

OK, then putting dirty words in your posts with a symbol in place of one of the vowels is no different, is it? The meaning isn't changed in the slightest.
I've posted this info every couple of months now in one place or another, and it doesn't seem to be getting any better, instead I end up editing more and more posts for this kind of j*nk.
CUT IT OUT....please. This ruins some pretty good posts with good information.

Use a thesaurus, think for a minute for a different word, do something, but stop this practice. I'm going to begin sending entire posts to the trash can if it keeps up. There's no reason for this on ECN. Remember, this site is "G" rated.

I'm guilty of this recently.
You all have my appologies.
I will try to be more careful in the future.

Is subtle innuendo still allowed? What about blatant sarcasm?

I must predicate to being a berk on occasions with inapropriate adjectival prestidigitations , and will in future desist and refrain.

Guilty party here....
However this tack was learned from Road Runner, and other cartoons of the 40's and 50's......

Very good call mate!.
People here should realise that we aren't the only ones that read these Forums.
Perspective members and lurkers are reading the posts in here at the same time as you are looking at this one.
I don't want to sound insulting to anyone here, but I was always taught at school that swearing was caused by a lacking in your vocabulary.
This is an Electrical Forum, there is no reason why we should be seeing expletives here anyway.
Sure we all get a tad wound up every now and then, but that shouldn't mean putting it into words on here.
As Electure mentioned above, this Site has a G-Rating, please lets try and adhere to that.
We're all grown-ups are we not?.

I once mentioned to my landlord that I was getting a thesaraus. His reply: "NO pets allowed!"

Although we are the most intelligent trade on the job. Electricians are not very cultured people. Your expectations of us are WAY TOOOOO HIGH!
Always with the restrictions electure.
