You can't use deleted posts as a source for saying that profanity exists.

I didn't use deleted posts to prove that profanity exists on FR. I used links that still work.

So now you can take it back that we are both liars.

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.

Let's be honest. Some have posted foul language on Free Republic

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.

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...

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.

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 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.

In this link, you will find the simple statement made by christianhomeschoolmommaof3 of

“You will find curse words here.”

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/bloggers/2460219/posts?page=8#8

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.

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.

Nope I've never seen the 'F' word here, once or twice the 'S' word, don't ever remember seeing the 'C' word or GD word. If they were ever used and deleted that only makes my point that this language is not tolerated here.

Thanks for taking up for me but I did say plenty. I didn’t mean FR was overrun but just that I have seen several people post profanity and I have. I guess we need to define plenty. I don’t mean plenty as in a majority. I have just seen lots of different people using them. But to me one is too many since Jim Robinson doesn’t want people to use them on his site.

“Hate” as defined by liberals has nothing to do with cuss words. THEY define the words that constitute “hate”. And those words have to do with liberal victim groups. If you speak against one of their pet groups you're a hater. If they speak against our pet groups - or if they use obscenities - they're defined as cool.

I've seen all of the above. Nobody said it was tolerated here, only that it's been posted. Straw-man arguments avail you little, here.

I've hit the abuse button on all of the "words" you've listed.

The only word I consider a real curse word is f*¢! outside of that the rest you hear on TV nowdays.Some of you lead very sheltered lives.

So, now the truth comes out. You HAVE seen profanity on FR, after so viciously attacking christianhomeschoolmommaof3 and slandering her and assassinating her character because she said she saw some and you initially disagreed that it ever existed on FR, cause you (in your own words in post 43 of this thread) "No, FR doesn't allow profanity over here, I have never seen the S word, the F word or even G-damn, occasionally I see a-hole or the abbreviated B.S. ,and I don't really consider hell a cuss word."

So, which is it?

Have you seen them or not?

Are you joking? No way! I feel like I need a shower after visiting the site when someone links to it. I see no point in misrepresenting the facts. There are people on FR that use curse words. It isn’t like over at DU but it also isn’t true that you will never see curse words on FR.

If the profanity is very bad the comment is usually pulled. Also, FR has a rule against using profanity, DU does not. The amount of profanity at DU is about 1000 times over and above anything I have ever seen on FR. If you don't believe that then go to DU and check it out. They use the F word as an adjective, verb, pronoun, noun and adverb.

And it's also true that if you object to profanity, you can call a Moderator and usually have a comment deleted or, at the least, have the poster warned.

Profanity is rare here because we self monitor.

As for anyone blocking FR but allowing DU - that's enough evidence for me to know that whoever is making that judgment is, for lack of a better word, evil.

So why would you associate with people like that?

Will you stop posting me links to profanity, I said you can find exceptions, EXCEPTIONS dear lady, there's always exceptions to every rule, as a rule profanity is not to be tolerated on FR.

That even means yes out of millions of posts and thousands of posters, they'll no doubt be some that sneak through, it just might be due to the diligence of the mods that I personally haven't seen what I consider to be profanity ridden posts.

Essentially, you said you have seen plenty of people using profanity on FR and he said not true, but can’t do that because he would have to know exactly what you have seen. He was basically saying that you were lying about what you saw.

A simpler reaction could have been, “That’s odd, I haven’t seen them” instead of going into orbit and accusing you of all kinds of things that simply were not true.

I am glad that I am sheltered. If your standard of language is what you hear on tv then I can understand why you don’t think that posters on FR use profanity. BTW, movie ratings that warn of profanity don’t always have the f-word in them.

And it doesn't matter what one person considers a cuss word or not. The others are still considered profanity, even if you don't.

I have no association with those people. My only point was to correct and incorrect statement that there is no profanity on FR. There is and it has been proven. I hate the DU and I love FR. There is no comparison. That doesn’t mean that we cant be truthful about the fact that some people here post profanity. Alot of it gets deleted by mods. Some of it gets missed. I even posted threads where curse words were included in the titles. Some have said that they don’t think they are curse words. I think the word a**, b****, god-d*** are curse words.
