Just wondering. I personally don't use it.
When I first started I had it on. But I found it difficult to understand the comments of a specific user from the old days of OT. So, I turned it off.
Mine is on but I have kids who are starting to read and random words can leave me with a little explaining to do with their teachers.
I understand that. I think my son just picked up the "S" word from his grandma. Thanks, Mom...
I feel bad for my kids if I ever have them. I picked up a bad habit of cussing a little too much.
(Like the time I used the F bomb in church after I fell and broke my foot and Euphonium.)
I once heard that there is an actual pain relief associated with using very seldom used (to the individual) profanity. Not sure why. Not even sure if what I heard was accurate at all, lol. But, I suppose you could have used the excuse that it was beneficial. Might start an interesting conversation, albeit possibly based on a false premise.
Hey, if it makes my situation sound better ill take it.
Oh, you swore when that happened? I would be grounded forever if I
A: broke my saxophone with sheer stupidity
B: cussed (in or out of church; it's pretty much outlawed in our house)
I wouldn't say I broke it over pure stupidity at least.
That's good. I'm sure that if I dropped my sax, it would've been because I was being stupid. I'm pretty careful with that thing to say the least.
Did you ask her about it?
"I just swear I didn't teach them."
Or "I just swear; I didn't teach them."
Lol, probably would be the latter.
I don’t use the filter.
I won’t use profanity, but I have no issue with reading and hearing it.
Don't mind any French. Mine is off.
Nope, i want to read what people write in the context that they write it in. I have even used profanity on this site 2 or 3 times.... NOt to bad since i have 3440 comments here. So i use profanity only a fraction of a percent.
I think the default is on, or at least that must have been the case back when I first created my account.
I don't bother changing it. Profanity alone usually only annoys me when it starts to obscure the intended meaning of the actual content or otherwise make it excessively cumbersome.
Filter's on don't know why, probably will turn it off even though major of users barely swear from what I've seen.
I don't mind if profanity is used tbh.
I had to check to see if I had it enabled or not. I do and I don't know why.
There is so little profanity in most of the posts I read that I don't think I've ever been affected by it.
It's enabled by default.
That'd do it.
This site uses a profanity filter?
I try to keep profanity minimal, but will curse here and there.
I don't use it, but that's just because I don't mind seeing profanity.
Mine is on, but I try hard not to use profanity. I'm saddened when I hear some of the language used nowadays. But I'm from a different generation, at least that's my excuse.
Edit: Festus on Gunsmoke took swearing to a whole new level.
I have it on. In general conversation I don't like to hear it or use it. I tend to reserve its use for when I'm really pissed off. When I'm driving I tend to use a lot of profanity, but when I'm alone - not that I'm pissed off all the time driving - it just happens.
I'm also more impressed by a person that can fully explain their thoughts/ideas or whatever when they don't use profanity. If someone cuts their finger or smashes a toe, yeah, it will fly. But if someone is simply describing something, like food and then say "oh this is so f***in good!" - totally turn off for me.
you can the filter off?!?!?!?!?! why wasn't told about this?! ive been using since day one cause i thought you couldnt take it off! please tell me how
edit: i found it, much easier to read comments now lol
