I like a laugh as much as the next person, but it seems that things have got a little heated on here over the past couple of days and some of the language has been disgraceful, especially that with certain individuals trying to bypass the word filtering system.

1 The indication of ***'s give a perfectly good representation of what the poster is trying to say.

2 That kind of language shouldnt need to be used on this forum anyway.

Substituting letter with numbers or symbols to create a swear word that bypasses the word filteing is unacceptable in my eyes and people who go to the time and effort to do that clearly dont wish to integrate themselves with this community.

Rant (and my 10 mins a day of being sensible) Over :p


You ****** little ********* you're so ******* &$£%@ ****** ***** **** ** *** ***** *** :giggle: (btw before anyone else starts on me lol, i was just messing around, this dont say anything, and i aint being horrible to minstrelman)

:p

You can attempt to be as horrible to me as you like, there not a chance in hell I'd ever get wound up over someone on the t'interweb.

But there are folk young and old alike who are simply on here to get a good deal and not read some of the words used in other posts.

MinstrelMan, when people have been doing this over the last few days, I've tried to either remove their posts, or change the word in question.

It's not acceptable to try and bypass the word filter in this way.

This is a warning to Fadersgirl as well - any more posts with this kind if thing will be removed.

You're a mod that your job, and as good at it as you are there's no way you can view every single post.

Neither can every variation of profanity be censored in the admin cp.

This is just a call to the members not to do it, the word filtering system is there for that reason.

Oh - and if you see prfanity in this way, please use the "report abuse" http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/images/custom_buttons/report.gif button and a mod will remove it immediatly.

WOW! Warn me all you want! :-D

why dont you (Emma) try something a, just go into that thread and read what i wrote! then realise that i was just trying to be helpful! as i know what it can lead to,...but just because of yesterday you ALL feel you can talk to me like this. i WILL NOT bend over and take it!

the other message above,..as clearly none of you have a sense of humour even though you are English, i was just messing around, to brighten the thread up a bit!

HOW ABOUT! i from now on PM one of your "clique" my reply b4 i post it, to see if it is ok with your "clique" standards and also that i am agreeing with you all the way! coz obviously if someone dont agree with you all hell breaks loose!

The more you lot think you cant talk to me like crap, the more i have my back up and i will reply the same way you have spoke to me!
:whistling: :prop: :friends: :-D

I wasn't talking about your above post. Contrary to popular belief, I happen to have a sense of humour as well.

I'm talking about the use of profanity, as this thread was about.

The big redness is not required. I'm 23, not exactly suffering from cataracts just yet :giggle:

I know you wasnt winding me up, you said that in your top post, I'm merely saying you couldnt wind me up if you tried :roll:

Back to topic.... Don't Swear!

You're not going to like this, and I feel a hissy fit comming on...

You believe you have a valid point, you believe you're being bullied and you believe everyone reads your posts wrong.

Ever thought it may not be the rest of us with a problem?

We all see things from different points of view. Thing is here, your seeing it from one, everyone else including mods etc are seeing it from the other.

Starting every word with a capital makes it hard to read btw. Not having a go, for future ref.

i swear on my life, i didnt start it with a capital letter, it must have automatically done it when i made it bigger, it was hard for me to read with the capital letters too, but i didnt do that!

Right, i got the joke (less funny when you have to explain that its a joke by the way) dont underestimate the power of the smilies in a post, they can be the difference in how someone interprates a body of text.

for example: after me writing "You can attempt to be as horrible to me as you like, there not a chance in hell I'd ever get wound up over someone on the t'interweb." if i'd have put a :p after that, you could have seen I was joking back with you (ok, my bad) but now you've gone off on one again thinkin the whole world hates you

OK, please do me a favour yeah,... just go over all my posts over the last 2 days and read replies to my posts, hopefully you will see that everyone is taking me the wrong way, it seems like i have to explain everything so people dont have a go at me! im getting sick of it, and im sure you are too!
#19
No, becuase the difference between me and you is that I don't care what people think of me, they take me as I come. If they don't like me then I see that as their loss and will not loose sleep over it. I wont attempt to change their minds or get caught up in an argument over my opinion (unless I'm bored and need it for my general amusment)

You always telling people to see your point of view, try to see theres and re-read what you post and just look how other people can interpratate it
#20
i do see their point, thats why i ask for the same in return.

you said - becuase the difference between me and you is that I don't care what people think of me, they take me as I come.-

when you have about 5-6 people being horrible to you....im sure you would want to put your point and comments across.

not really - when you thought I insulted you yesterday I got a barage of bad rep calling me a plum (which I dont quite know the meaning of) from Mr Fader and your essex crew? I didnt go off on one I just carried on what I was doing (which happened to be whistling Popcorn by Hot Butter & eating jaffa cakes - not at the same time though cos I would have sprayed choclate everywhere :lol: )

I think theres something in the HUKD air today :giggle:

Ive had my first spat today aswell!

All calm my end now though :)

I agree about the filter, if ive got something to say i star it :)

But, i dont think i should do this anymore as i swear too much anyway :giggle:
#26
Please, I aint on anyones back.

Like Rayman said, not in here, discussion over.
[admin]#27
Next off-topic post in here gets a vacation from the boards. I am tired of seeing this happen on threads like this where a useful comment is posted that just degrades into a petty squabble.

Sort it out among yourself in pm's guys. We're here to find deals not to engage in forum trolling and drama.
