Lighten up Robert, they're good guys (and ladies). On some other forums the software would have shot you down and you would have missed out on that personal touch. It's like saying "ole darn". We all know what it means, but you have to remember, there may be some youngsters reading this stuff. Not everybody on the forum is older than dirt.

yes I"m older than diry (I"m 76). as to youngsters reading this stuff" just now I was watching the simpsons on TV (yes I watch the simpsons) I"m sure there are youngsters watching this program; the language on this program was a WAY stronger than the word I used. If the managers on this website think that they are protecting the ladies and youngsters from foul language; they live in another world.
100 years ago yes; not today, with what they put on the soaps and other programs today you would have to be blind and deaf not to see or here it. drugs; boze; infadelity; children out of wedlock; wife swapping; and this is only the tip of the iceburg. the kids of today are much more knowable than you might believe. some of the us even though are as you say older than dirt do understand this younger generation.

Robert,

The rule of thumb we've always used on this forum is that acceptable language is defined as that one would use sitting around the campfire conversing where children are present. This is a family-oriented website (in the traditional sense of the word), and our language expectations reflect that.

I think it's nice to have a site that has some worthwhile standards. As DW and I tell each other "I'll be glad when nasty goes out of style." I know the language my grandboys undoubtably hear in school and the music they may listen to, but that doesn't mean I have to put up with it at my house.

I would love to know the number of under 18's who read this forum. My guess....under 5. And under 14's (who by that age can, and have, teach/taught me new words of derision) would be oh, say, less than ONE.

That said, there should be limits to polite speech and those limits depend on the situation. Comments in a church may vary from those heard in a football locker room.

Film at 11.

Once again I must agree with the poster.

I don't agree with "let's lower the speed limit to 55". The speed limit post is the maximun speed limit that the road was designed to handle. However their are many "special people" who feel that the posted speed limit does not apply to them. If the road is posted at 65 MPH, hell lets drive 85 mph. If it is posted at 70 mph, let drive 95 mph. Those "special people" don't give a damn about anything or anyone around them. The questions are; are you one of those "special peole", and where is the law enforcement?.....

The sad fact is a lot of people think very much
"like the special people" (everyone get out of my way here I come) If you drive the posted speed limit or below; your some kind of freak.

It is even more so sad when you contemplate how many otherwise seemingly law abiding citizens come out of the closet en mass and endorse disregard for the law when these topics come up.

Even worse when those in law enforcement chime in supporting the behavior. I worked with more then one Sherriff who lamented to me, when I was serving their office as a consultant, that at times there was too fine a line seperating the mentality required to be an officer and a criminal. Crossing over the line often manifested itself in the seemingly small things such such as an officers log showing he only issued speeding tickets to those going at least 10 mph over the posted speed limit and then gradually creeping up. Software can track those trends and flag the behavior nowadays.

I know this will upset some however it is not reasonable to pick and choose which laws to obey based on personal preference. Where will we end up asside from anarchy if this attitude continues to escalate?

Keep it safe!

Take it one step further. What are we teaching our children, who someday will be on the road.
