To err is human? Some are uncorrectable.

I am not new here, but it has been a few years since I participated in the forum. I try to keep it clean, and I am not a grammar fanatic but I respect the language and try to obey the rules. In one of my posts, I noticed to my shame, that i had made some spelling and punctuation errors, as well as using a word that apparently is not allowed. I should have used "Junk" instead, someone added  'Blah>>Blah>>Blah>  but when I tried to edit and correct, that was not allowed either. Just "Report" and "Share". So I will just let it go, live and learn. Hopefully you didn't add a point to my spotless forum record. I apologize if it violated the rules, but I tried to correct it. 

Cheers from your friendly neighborhood Bonehead.

Yes, the forum has a list of "naughty" words and it scans your post for them before it gets posted, automatically replacing them with BLAH, BLAH, BLAH thing.  It's kind of silly, but it is not my forum.   I also agree that some of the "naughty" words are IMO not all that "naughty" and should be allowed.  that "C" word mentioned is one of them.

To err is human!     What gets me is when organisations and governing bodies get it wrong, make a grovelling apology in the media and use that hackneyed expression ' lessons have been learnt' when the same things they should have dealt with happen again at a later date.

Also applies to supposedly "private" messages.

unless you're using your voice in your own home (or writing notes on paper and then burning them), you should consider that nothing is "private"...and even then there is no guarantee.

I wouldn't count on your voice in own home being private, either. With all these smart appliances that are always listening, you can't be sure who or what is on the other end. Recently products my wife and I have only discussed have been showing up as web ads. Coincidence? Maybe. My phone's assistant will occasionally  randomly speak up with information related to our current conversation.

I'm not particularly paranoid, but I am concerned about privacy and what I say where.

This has happened to me and my coworkers on more than one occasion. Things that were never Googled or otherwise looked at online, only discussed with my coworkers, showed up as advertisements on our Facebook pages.  One of our coworkers left his phone on his workbench and stepped out of the shop for a minute. We all stood around his workbench and repeated "Viagra" in our "conversation" 🤣🤣🤣. I have no idea if anything became of it!

I'm not puritanical when it comes to salting up the conversation. A lot of elementary school (including parochial school students) kids' language can make a longshoreman cringe. Girls were, and still are, very good at it. It was like that when I was a kid in the '60s, it was like that in prior decades and it remains the same today.

So very true!LOL

It is also generational as we pass it down to our kids and they to theirs!LOL

I was taught do as I say, not as I do from my grandparents and felt the sting after repeating some word they used, but used fluently as an adult once out of the house.(military service didn't help nor being a truck driver!LOL)

My kids have taught their kids the same and they do not use bad language even though their dads (and some moms) do. I am sure as they reach adulthood they too will grow their 4 letter vocabulary.LOL

Just a side note, one son's daughter made him start a swear jar. He said he would add a quarter every time he said a bad word. She insisted he put a dollar in each time, said she wanted to go to college!LOL
