    cuss words

    Would you rather have CF PG-13 or R rated as far as saying an adult word in a thread or reply and having to **** your actual reply?

    Re: cuss words

    I personally dont care. "Bad" words are just that... words. IMHO, if you get offended over a simple word, you really have better things to get riled up about.

    But, unfortunately there are those that make a big deal about it, so CF will always be censored somewhat.

    I'm disappointed that my favorite TV Show, The Dick Van **** Show is censored

    I kind of wish sometimes that anything could go on this site... There are some epic threads to be had, like some of the ones on ShaggyBevo

    I understand, but would it be better to see what you wanted printed to be printed? It's a college site right?

    Well it's a site about college athletics, so in a way. I understand wanting a "family atmosphere" around Cyclone Athletics, looks good from a PR standpoint, but I would wager that 95+% of readers know what those words are when starred out.

    Re: cuss words

    There are also people who check the site at work, and the asterisks are necessary to keep it work-safe.

    Re: cuss words

    I wouldn't mind have an "adults only" section where you have to verify your age (18+) and be warned of possibly graphic content/discussion.

    As far as the main forums, I think it's fine to be censored a bit.

    Re: cuss words

    the only thing I hate is when people use obscure swear words or just put a bunch of asterisks and I have to count the asterisks to figure out what word they are using.
