    What are the rules regarding swearing on your forum?







    Here at Admin Community it is allowed providing it is in moderation and not aimed at people.

    If you dont allow swearin/cursing, try get a mod to replace certain words you dont want to be said on your forum... I'm sure your forum should come with it built in... Just like SBFC said, I also allow Swearing but aslong as it isint used towards other members

    I dont personally use it on forums, but I do allow it. But if its directed at the staff or somebody, then it will be removed.

    Personally, a few curse words a post doesn't bother me as long it is not referring to a type of people in this world.

    I agree with the rules here; as long as it's not aimed at anyone in an offensive way and it's not OTT it's fine, we use it in day to day life so why not on forums.







    I understand obviously if there are younger members on the forum, in which case they can have the swear filter on.

    we do allow swear words as long as its not used in hatred towards other posters and we do also have a very small filter in place for the worse words.

    Depends. If there is a post with lots of swears in it I'd delete the post, if its just something like "oh shit I forgot" I wouldn't mind.

    I have no restrictions on cursing, but if it gets out of hand, I will hand our referrals and bans.

    My forum does not impose restrictions on swearing at all. We actually encourage a "no-holds-barred" environment. Despite the wide level of freedom we allow, there is very little cussing.
