I was just reading a post where someone posted the acronym "STFU" (translated "Shut the **** up"). I have no problem with profanity, but it just seems like an insult posted soley for the purpose of being inflamatory (which will insight more insults). The only way this site is of any use to anyone is if it provides useful information re: computers/lans/wans. This "lowest common denominator" thing gets old in a hurry. I'm already starting to look for and find sites where I can learn faster. It's a shame people have to work out their aggressions in a forum, it's even more of a shame the moderators let them do it. If those posts where deleted not necessarily immediately, but at the moderators first convenience, the insults wouldn't reach the intended party and the rest of us wouldn't have to read them. As a result if people knew their insults would be deleted they wouldn't bother to post them.

Working on it. We all have lives, and editing/deleting posts is something we reasonably have to be careful about. I AM paying more attention to this type of thing though. I think the others are as well. We won't catch everything. Just not possible.

We'll do our best.


"Yeah Baby, YEAH!!!"

As Bouncer has stated we are going to pay more attention to that sort of thing

It is impossible for us to catch every little thing, that's where ya'll come in, kindly send us an email if there is anything out of control and we will assess the situation. Whatever you do, don't flame the person back in the forums, this just leads to more flaming back and forth.

We aren't censorship Nazis, heh

Glad to see you all are looking into this stuff.

Have always liked this site, have always gotten good technical data on this site, and if it were not for information (on this site), my DSL would not be as optimized as it is today.

I post a link, to this site, on many other forums....it is the 5 star of DSL sites.

Keep up the good work...assume none of the Moderators were offended my post (a few pages down by now).

Have always had respect for all of you. You knowledge is most valuable, world wide...after all it is the www (world wide web).

"it's better to die on your feet, than live on your knees"

Freedom of expression should be respected, not restricted. I know the rules though, and I dont lease this playground. But an acronym shouldn't offend. It's proper in the respects that they didnt blatenly say, "Shut the Fun up."

people just need to grow up and look past those bad acronyms, after all they are only words, people shouldn't get all upset at such little things, unless it's out of hand

people in this day and age complain way too much, i'm guilty too
