Hmm, So we have bad language here?

Mun

Never Forget
So when I am at work on my lunch break I generally make a visit to VPSBoard, LET, Gaming-servers.net, and a few other sites to see what is going on in the world. However, I won't be able to go to VPSboard anymore due to bad language. Please note, LET is not banned on this, so you have one uped them in the bad language category.

I use more bad language on lowendtalk (of course) so I don't get why only VPSB is blocked

Are you at work? If so it's probably just a block on keywords o; Use a proxy :D

Haha, weird. I've never seen that. Mun, what company provides blocking?

I don't know about Mun, but Light Speed seems to block it at my place of work for the same reason.

Well I for one know that I've used a lot of fucking language over there, more than I've even read here collectively.

Children need to know when to use words like FUCK YOU effectively.     We are here to teach them the power of speech.  Proper speech.

It's more an issue of teaching them when NOT to use it, since teenagers seem to use it quite often when it doesn't need to be used.

I honestly have been trying to cut back on the amount of swearing I do (people on IRC can tell you how I've been failing miserably), although I've always tended to keep it out of forum posts.

IMHO swear words have the strongest expressive power when they're used infrequently.

You won't want your children to grow up to become uncultured street gangsters.

Censorship is good when used appropriately.
Indeed and so far, that hasn't been a problem with my kids.On the flip side, they are well aware of what 'sweary words' are and don't use them at all despite hearing me mouth off every so often when something is going wrong.

Censorship is good, yes. Exposure is better.

I wonder if someone reported us for bad language to the nanny state'ists compiling that list?... Kind of like they keep doing with AdBlock to block vpsBoard's ads.

A fresh glass of Haterade for lunch.

I've worked in a lot of places but have rarely seen bad language as an excuse to filter sites in a work environment.
