    On a more serious note. ( I hate it when I have to do that)

    I'd suggest a mod PM versus public. Hopefully it is made more clear to you and the mods can add or edit the rule so we can benefit as well.

    On the Open Boards, "****" is only allowed in the "Flame Zone", that doesn't include the "Rubber Room". That's why it is important for Moderators to screen Threads moved out of the "Flame Zone for use of the word "****", before moving them. Rep comments would be in violation of the rule. Visitor Messages would be in Violation of the Rule. PM's would Not be. PM's are exempt from most Rules.

    Man, that sucks ass! Because anytime you use the C-word, it makes more of an impact than dropping the F-bomb!

    Aw, the power of the english language.

    Given the rules Intense, when you moving this to the flame zone then? lol

    Unless mods are immune from the word when used in an explanation on the open board...
