You won't get banned, Dover, but I'd like to draw your attention to the new swear filter rules, posted in the Web Issues section. Please read it. You can use the word "bitch," as long as it is NOT referring to a female human being. You may use it as in "stop complaining and bitching" or "this 100-degree heat is a bitch" but you start calling women that, and it's automatic moderation.

Consider this your first and only warning.

I thought they mean tthe actual Blog entries; not the threads that spawn from them. Good question.


We need a line call here.

Using degrading terms for gender/race or sexual orientation will not be tolorated no matter where they are used.

There is your ruling.

Actual blog entries are allowed to slide a bit on the use of swear words. As in, the basic four-letter-naughties. WHEN then are done according to the specs on Spoon's sticky. I believe it's something like after the first 120 words, so that anyone clicking on the blog doesn't actually get hit with an f-bomb unless the click to go further.

However, using a b-word in a mysogynistic way is always unacceptable. As it would be to use the n-word, etc.

At least, that's my moddy understanding of it. You can always PM Spoon.

Oh, "line judging"... well, then, my question about "Achy Breaky Heart" is hopelessly irrelevant.

at least her claiming she isn't knowingly taking drugs suddenly has a ring of truth to it...
