Christianhomeschoolmommaof3 is right. She and metmom and others here have provided evidence of profanity. But, some of the posts are crude even when they don’t use profanity.
That doesn’t mean FR is a bad site. We all love this forum, but it is not intended for children. It SHOULD be blocked by parental controls. Even if there were no crude language used here, so many of the subjects are intended for a mature audience.
All that said, if FR is blocked, DU should be blocked, too. (For example, remember all of the vile things they posted about the Palin family?) And FR should not be labeled as a “hate” site.
Youtube is one of the WORST websites. It always amazes me how commentators criticize FR as “hateful”, but then they use Youtube, going as far as using it to host questions from the public for presidential debates. Yet, all over Youtube are the most vile, despicable remarks ever posted. I wonder if those parental controls block Youtube?
Have you asked the Moderators to remove them?
I didn’t use one of your posts at all.
I didn’t admit to an error. I HAVE seen PLENTY of people post profanity on FR. I have reported PLENTY of people to the mods. You can still find profanity on FR as linked by metmom and myself.
YOUR error was that you CLAIMED to have said “not true” to my “plenty of people” post. In TRUTH, you posted “not true” to my post that said “you can find curse words here”.
Maybe we should ask Jim Robinson what words HE considers profanity.
I’m not excited so I don’t need to calm down. What you posted in #76 isn’t true.
Ones that I come across in the threads I have, yes.
"To: whatisthetruth ...however none of my posts said there is never any profanity uttered on FR,... To: chris_bdba You will find curse words here. 8 posted on February 26, 2010 5:09:16 PM EST by christianhomeschoolmommaof3 To: christianhomeschoolmommaof3
Not true! 14 posted on February 26, 2010 5:14:26 PM EST by whatisthetruth Looks like you did. Then you repeated it.
To: christianhomeschoolmommaof3 Not true! Are you fron DU? 27 posted on February 26, 2010 5:35:28 PM EST by whatisthetruth Personally, lying bothers me more than profanity. But that's just me.

Yes you did. You addressed "whatisthetruth" with the first post which was mine.
Why resort to personal attacks when someone disagrees with you? No I am far from illiterate.
Yeah, I can see why you've been shredded for that comment. It makes perfect sense now... /s
They are just going along with the school systems of promoting and training future communists.
They would be amiss if they allowed any conservative or constitutional content to be seen by minors!
Yep that little comment sure did set off a firestorm. I am still not sure why. I see a post was removed by the mods. It wasn’t for profanity was it?
I can't believe the over reaction.
Someone says she's seen profanity, and she gets attacked like by rabid pit bulls, and then the ones who attack her for saying that, then go on to admit that they too, have seen some profanity on FR themselves.
So they attacked her for saying what they agree with.
I will never understand how some people's minds work.
Actually he copied MY first post which was ADDRESSED to you. Whatisthetruth then replied to my post addressed to you.
Not it is not.
The first post is MINE but it is addressed to you.
Lol! I have explained it twice.
Which post was that?
Never mind. I found it.
I don’t recall any profanity used as such at all on this thread.
Comment #8 “You will find curse words here.”
I guess I can't mention literacy again or my post will be deleted. LOL
You and me both. (And I'm a woman.) There were times I could've made a sailor blush with the language I used. Not often. Only when I was trying to scare someone off. I learned it at school (certainly not at home) as a survival tactic. Now, as a parent myself, I look back and cringe at some of the things I said. If you ever met me now, you would never guess... I try to be very careful as a parent, though I've slipped a few times.
I don't think I've ever typed profanity on an internet forum. I'm on your ping list, and I don't remember noticing you posting profanity. It probably wasn't very bad. But, it's good for us to keep ourselves in check, anyway.
Lol! We are all confused on this thread. :)
Oh I wonder what got deleted. Of course I haven’t been personally attacked at all in this thread. s/
My post was deleted. For the record there was no profanity in it. The profanity deniers are a little thin skinned. LOL
What amazes me is that those who attacked you the worst for that comment, then go on to admit that they have seen it too.
And your comment about seeing plenty of people use profanity is not inaccurate.
I’ve seen plenty use it as well, and I’ve also seen the vast majority of it deleted by the mods. There’s just not plenty left, which isn’t what you said either.
So, yes, plenty of people use profanity, and plenty of people hit the abuse button on it and the mods remove plenty of them.
Are we the profanity truthers? Lol!
I’m not, except for which *original* comment people were referring to.
What are you thanking me for? I was just pointing out that TigersEye was correct. He didn’t use your post, he used mine.
But....It isn't common. For instance, I have seen no profanity, or even suggested profanity with asterisks replacing key letters, yet today.
I have seen all of those words except the “C” word posted numerous times.
You were provided with links to ALL those words on FR and you told me to stop posting them to you. At this point you are WILLFULLY ignorant of the facts.
No if I thought you were a liar, I would call you a liar, if I thought you were a troll, I would've told you to go back to DU where you belong. I merely implied you were a troll via a question, which is what it is, an implication, that's not quite the same as an outright accusation.
... everybody look busy ...
I thanked you because you cleared up what my brain wasn’t seeing. All I saw was my id being used and I wasn’t seeing it was to me not from me.
Thin skinned isn’t the word for it.
Honestly, hitting the abuse button over something like that?
/shaking head in disbelief.
Kind of makes you wonder how many times tonight we’ve had the abuse button spammed on us, doesn’t it sis? ;)
Well until you know maybe you shouldn't be making comment and passing judgment.
Ok can we clarify the C word?
Are you guys referring to c**t as in female genitalia? If so I provided a link to that word. I was on that thread but somehow missed it until I did a google search for it. It was in reference to a teenage girl who had killed someone. The poster called her that word and then threatened violence against her.
I'm not posting the excerpt, but it's worth clicking the link.
I don’t doubt that you’ve never seen them.
But that doesn’t mean they don’t exist, or didn’t exist.
Nobody said there were plenty of posts on FR containing curse words either.
Why do you keep misrepresenting what was said?
And I've seen that one posted on occasion, because I happened to be on the right thread at the wrong time.
That one has the shortest half-life of them all.
And have you not been satisfied with the job the Moderators did when you asked that the offensive comments be removed?
When I make a statement and you say that my statement is not true, you are implying that I am a liar.
I said “But basically yes, he implied I was a liar and a troll.”
You said “ merely implied you were a troll via a question, which is what it is, an implication, that’s not quite the same as an outright accusation.”
Uh yeah that’s what I said.
Okay I understand now. :)
Sure does sis. ;)
