Just curious about the overzealous word-censoring
« on: September 20, 2016, 05:26:44 PM »
When you guys set up the website, who turned up the automatic word-censoring up to ANGRY PREACHER level?

There may be members under 18, but you guys even censor words that you would hear in a sermon.  Are Chevy truck owners really that delicate?

this is a family oriented site. if you catch me at work (prison) im cursing like a sailor, in front of my kids im 100% pure lol. its kind of nice to be able to kick back and enjoy this site. i mean we dont deal with name calling or bickering and curse words on a site thats supposed to be helping each other out, you really dont need to curse.

It's difficult to know just how much you don't know until you know it.
In other words... if people learn by making mistakes, by now I should know just about everything!!!

Hey, it's not going to make me leave or anything... I am just surprised how strict it is.  Reminds me of being a kid and getting chewed out by my pal's crazy catholic grandma for basically nothing.  YOU HEATHENS!

I notice we get off of trucks now and then like our jobs and star wars and even personal stuff, which i think is fine, and even a nice break from the truck talk, which actually helps us to get to know each other a little better. However, i find it interesting that i never see anyone even in a friendly way compare sports teams or politics.

Ok time to turn it...Update on politics.........the rust has decided to take over the quarter panels even though the primer was elected to reign...the sander is getting his army together to overthrow the rust so the paint can hopefully reign in peace again.   LOL
