    well you wont find any of that **** here

    Oh don't get me wrong. I'm not opposed to a certain level of vile posting.

    What I'm opposed to is one forummer referring to another as, say, a scumbag and the other not being permitted to respond in kind.



    Edit to add: Btw... when I refer to vile posting I'm not referring to offensive or foul language. I'm referring to deliberate and repeated abusive posting. I don't intend to get into the details any further. As far as language on my other board goes... I'm certain the word 'scumbag' even indirectly tossed out at anyone would be grounds for an instant timeout.

    Guess I didn't. But then, I often find people on message boards don't get my jokes. Don't know if it's me or them.
