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?

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.

So, your ORIGINAL, original comment was post 8, "You will find curse words here.", after all.

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!

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.

I used to have a very, very bad mouth years ago when I was young (and did other bad things).

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.

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.

When there is profanity, it doesn't last long. Other posters notify the mods and the post is removed.

But....It isn't common. For instance, I have seen no profanity, or even suggested profanity with asterisks replacing key letters, yet today.

But basically yes, he implied I was a liar and a troll.

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.

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.
