Why is swearing on this site not being picked up????

Recommended Posts

Been reading a few posts lately and seems like the hostility,tone and language has increased and is being allowed to do so and far be it for me to preach about swearing as I do my fair share but when it’s in a written word for all to see it just lowers the posting and creates hostility which escalates and can get out of hand.

Bad language and inappropriate wording used to be picked up and the moderators gave out warnings,I know I will be targeted for bringing up this subject but surely I can’t be the only one who has noticed this trend and is just not appropriate for this kind of site..let the war of words  commence.

This place has changed (as has social media in general) sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse.

 

Go onto the FB sites, see what passes as discourse there.

Being serious....I did complain when the "C" word was being used a bit too liberally.....oh, and it wasn't "Cod" on some of the fish based threads.

I've deactivated Facebook for that reason Mick. It's disgraceful what is on there. Made even worse when you have a few weeks off it. It's awful.

 

I agree with the OP. No need for it

Have you been using the report post function? 

No...I didn’t want to seem like telling lies out of school,I just wanted to mention in some kind of way how the posts are being allowed to have swearing in them especially since the change in format and nothing being said and if anyone else had noticed the same thing.

Leave it out, the vast majority of us are working class lads that use bad langue day in, day out. It doesn't make us wrong'uns It's just how we are made.
