Well put. If you are using the word/words expressively then its not a bad thing at all but chances are if you feel the need to swear in a website forum its likely that you are trying to invoke a response from someone or worse, if its deliberate abuse then its probably not going to help or move forward any channel of rational discussion.

Don't fret, no censoring in the new VideoGamer that we're working on right now :)

Kirby is well prepared for prison. He's got the sucking down the bald head. All he needs now is some crew tats and he'd be sorted.

There's a contextual difference here as well as a practical limitation at play. The board software can't tell if you're calling someone a ***** or using the word passively, it just sees the word and filters it out. It does this to help maintain a civil atmosphere, it's more about conduct than content. Whether or not it's effective or necessary is another discussion, but that's the intention.

VG staff post under the same rules as anyone else - a forum post is not a video feature. Think of it this way - you're in the cinema. An on-screen character calls another character a *****. Does that then make it ok to turn to the stranger on your left and call them a *****? No. Is that a double standard? Not at all, it's just an entirely different means of communication where the rules are different.

tl;dr - nobody's telling you that swearing is bad! We just don't want people calling each other names :)

Agreed, *****stick.

My point, though, is I can't understand how the *****s at VG can tell us not to swear on the grounds that it's not nice when this mother*****er is swearing like it's going out of *****ing fashion.

Dunno but this way in the event of an absolute twerp visiting the forum their outbursts won't be as sharp, you ****ing ****!

Why can this *****ing ***** swear to almighty heaven in his *****ing videos but we can't do the same on the *****ing forum? For *****'s sake.
