What are your thoughts on opening up the Fish Pond thread to cussing like they did in the GBOD on the Michigan board? Nobody in the FPC gets after each other, for the most part, and are always respectful of one another.
I'm against it. Keep in mind that on most boards, there are a lot more lurkers than there are posters. There are a lot of people of all ages that read these boards that don't post, and there are a lot of people who share computers with their wife and/or kids that don't want to be associated with bad language. And anything anyone wants to say can be communicated without cussing, so I really don't see any upside to it.

Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
Who cares what lurkers think or are offended by? They're scum.
EDITED BY KEVIN you, Worly!
I see what you're doing...a little extra incentive for them to join the conversation. Not bad!
Right back atcha my man!
Good thread. Would read again
Awe so sweet
But how are we supposed to tell Fish how we really feel about him? Sometimes he needs a good lashing that only curse words can convey.
The emoticon was made for a reason!
I think the only way this would work is if it was like the Late Night Crew on tBB where its only uncensored late at night when most kids would be in bed (think late night Comedy Central). Even then its a slippery slope though.
It's actually a de-iced slope with traction shoes fishy
