Are you two dense, illiterate or what?
I didn't use deleted posts to prove that profanity exists on FR. I used links that still work.
Where did I call you liars? You imply FR as being a profanity-ridden site, I simply choose to disagree. There are some terms more acceptable than others. But again this is not a Christian site, if it were you might have a point.
No, we didn't.
...I simply choose to disagree.
No, you didn't. You attacked chmo3's character and accused her of being from DU. If you *simply* disagreed, you would have said so instead of going viral about it and engaging in character assissination.
There are some terms more acceptable than others.
Which is irrelevant as the terms are still profanity, whether socially acceptable or not.
My contention is that it is the exception not the rule as profanity as a rule is not tolerated by the owner of the site, however none of my posts said there is never any profanity uttered on FR, however I personally have seen little of the words that I consider profane during all of my postings to date.
You’ve been proven wrong. You lied and smeared the reputations of good FReepers. You owe them an apology.
Hmm... I don’t have a dog in the fight. I just happened to come upon the thread and actually felt a bit guilty, because I have used more profanity of late; sometimes ***ing out letters and sometimes - not...
I don’t think that FR is riddled with profanity at all. Heck, I don’t even see how people can take their children through the grocery checkout, the magazines are practically pornography!
I think the degradation of culture in general, combined with incredibly crazy and dangerous times, are affecting people. Still, educated (and I don’t mean college degrees, I mean people who can read and write etc) people can express themselves without profanity when they try.
And I humbly admit I need to try harder...
Here is the f word used.
Here is b******. But you probably don’t consider that profanity.
Fine you have your point of view and I have mine on what constitutes profanity, just because YOU and your sister feel certain words are inappropriate for FR doesn't make them so. You're always welcome to go find another site more to your liking. I happen to like it here and no I don't care for profanity-laced sites.
You will find curse words here.

Looks like you did. Then you repeated it.
Not true! Are you fron DU?
Personally, lying bothers me more than profanity. But that's just me.
What words are almost always posted with it?
That is your contention NOW that you have been proven wrong. Here is my original post and your reponse to it.
You will find curse words here.

And here is the link to it
Why little J! I have never seen you post any profanity. My-oh-my!
That’s just me too.
If you have "seen little of the words" you consider profane, you've still seen "some (few)" profane words. As I said, such posts are usually reported and deleted. Several Ted Kennedy death threads kept the moderators in overdrive!
Neither metmom nor chm-o-3 stated FR is filled with vulgar hate mongers. They simply pointed out that there is "some" foul language.
I certainly see no reason for FR to be banned as a "hate" site, especially if DU is allowed.
I have. The GOProud crap* put me over the edge. Actually I’ve noticed it creep into my typing fingers more lately.
I used to have a very, very bad mouth years ago when I was young (and did other bad things).
I was thinking lately I should watch my words a bit more and I take this thread as a pointer that I should.
*crap is okay! ;-)
In this link, you will find the simple statement made by christianhomeschoolmommaof3 of
“You will find curse words here.”
That is ALL she said. She never implied that it was common. She never said it was the rule. She never said it was tolerated by JR. Nobody ever accused you of posting profanity.
In post 60 you said this to her.....”I was replying only to your original statement, that there are ‘plenty’ of people who use foul language on FR. “
She never said that there are *plenty* of people on FR who use foul language. You are putting words in her mouth and falsely accusing her of things that she did not say.
Why are you attacking her? What nerve did she hit that sent you into such a tirade against her?
She made one simple statement and people went ballistic over it, a totally uncalled for over reaction.
You have been proven wrong. We are not sisters except in Christ although I would be glad to have metmom for a sister!
We love FR and don’t want to find another site. We also don’t feel the need to lie about FR and say there is no profanity here just because we love it her. When you love something you can tell the truth about it.
He stopped posting profanity after he got his mouse washed out with soap.
Okay you all just need to calm down, I already covered my original not true comment in this post.
