    To be honest ... a mod has now come in ... has said they are talking about this ... so I think it would be sensible to leave this as an open thread (with no more provocative posts!)

    I can say this thanks to the comfy cushion provided by RingOfFlame allowing me to sit on the fence.

    Again, you seem to think of this site as having some form of formal policy documentation - why? There isn't some board which sits down and writes 10,000 page policies in legalese. Sure, a no swearing policy may exist, but every mod is an individual (volunteer) member of the site. They mod the site out of the goodness of their own hearts, they don't go on some training course etc...

    You seem to be approaching this site from completely the wrong angle.

    No not the wrong angle, just a different angle from you. Your opinion is that different mods can choose to interpret language in different ways, even if said language is part of a policy the site has, effectively using the policy as a guide lines they do not have to use. I however see a policy as something that should be adhered to.

    @RingOfFlame:

    I too have been reprimanded for the use of foul language!

    I do find it quite intolerable that I cannot use the word "Chicken" anymore hehe!!

    Which is why you're coming from it from the wrong angle... Consider this - you've been here for quite a short time, and in that time, you've been given various warnings/had posts edited/been given a lot of negative rep. Does that not indicate to you that you are going about things in slightly the wrong way? Generally, if I am warned about something I've done, or find myself being given a ticking off by a large chunk of the community (ie. neg rep) then I'll think 'I may be wrong here...' and change the way I operate. Do you?

    No just because my opinion differs from yours it is wrong, it is different. Consider this - You are not always right. As for my rep you are looking at it from the wrong angle. From this angle I could not care less. I know full well that the reason it is red is because a couple of members who enjoy leaving me nice messages via negative rep.
