The problem with the relatively harmless profanity is that it usually rapidly progresses to language that would curl a sailor's ears (or maybe even a cowboy's).
We think many of our users find these boards both entertaining and informative. Fot their sake we have no intention of letting them get out of hand. Offensive posters will have all their messages deleted and their IP address will be banned from future posts. It that fails to stop the problem, the boards will go to a "monitored" status with all posts pre-approved before appearing on the board.
In the last 4 years only one poster has been banned and very few posts have been deleted. Let's keep it that way!
p.s.- And thanks for being an active poster.
