Test - faeces
I am sure I am not the only one who has been pulled up recently on using the word crap within a post. The last time I did I was told that this site has a strict language policy and that using such terms as crap would block the site from filters and would not be tolerated.
Now a quick search of the site shows a large number of older posts still with the word, about 500+ and today there are a number of posts with the word crap in them. One such thread has posts from a mod. Why is it one comes down like a ton of bricks within minutes of a post whilst other do nothing? Maybe I was right in my first assumption that the reason my post was censored is that I am not liked so an easy target.
Just wondered if anyone else has had similar issues?

Puts it in for me.
My guess would be because Mods can't be everywhere all the time... There are not a huge number of them, and they can't sit around checking every post all the time.
Would this not have been more suited to PM to an admin, or use the admin forum to get an answer, rather than starting what is effectively a 'CENSORSHIP!!!' thread?

True but one of the threads today has replies from a mod. So they read the posts and have time to reply but not edit.
OMG, we're obviously out to get you! Damn teh internetz!
Actually we're just discussing our language policy at the minute, with regard to this very word, which is why things aren't being actively jumped on as fast.
I've an idea ... perhaps if a mod is responding to a thread that mod in particular might be trying to respond to a thread as a *member* ... mods are members too.
Then again ... if you spot unsuitable language in a thread you could always use the report facility to raise the awareness of it to the mods.
Oh yes ... mustn't forget ... I too am being a

I'd rather people didnt swear! Only because blooming PCE has a wail of a time! My boss already thinks this is a dodgy site!
Well I was told there is a no swearing policy, and seeing as the word was edited out of my post it must come under that policy. Also if there is a no swearing policy then the mods must have a copy to work from?
