    I just spent 20 minutes sanitizing a thread and completely deleting another one.. this is embarrassing, unprofessional and uncalled for. I have children, many of you have children, please do NOT post things that are NOT family friendly in this forum.

    I don't think we need to have a long discussion about this.. just use some restraint when posting and remember that many of us have children or grandchildren running around, on our laps, etc. when we are on the forum.

    I do not want to have to go to a private place to view the SMF.

    I want it to be fun but it absolutely must be fun in a family friendly way.. Thank you..

    I view the site at work and already walk a fine line of spending too much time here, I could get into some real trouble if an offensive image showed up at the wrong time. Thanks for keeping the site clean Jeff!

    I cant see any need for profanity in any forum on this site.

    I would rather not have any profanity.. I don't know that we are going to edit every little bad word that pops up and we certainly aren't going to ban anyone for it as long as it doesn't get to some type of ultra extreme level but I think it makes us a lot more professional when we just keep our language respectable and keep it to words that you can actually find in the dictionary.

    I know that's hard for some and I'm not knocking.. I just know that habits are hard to break.[​IMG]

    I would like to think that my 12 and 14 year old daughters could read over my shoulder without me having any fear of what they might find.
