I have a site suggestion that I think other members will appreciate as well.

I'm so sick of seeing D***e, F**d, and C***y being post on this site. It's annoying. I think there should be some type of rule against it. It isn't necessary, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who finds it annoying and childish.

What does everyone else think?

Tim,

I too agree it's annoying and in bad taste. I think the Webmaster and his Moderators have politley suggested those not be used.
I did it a time or two in the past in my younger days (read that as newbie to the site
) and have rehabilitated my ways. I have been saved

I agree. It appears some members show their disrespect for another brand by refusing to spell the name out. I've also observed the same wherein some purposely mis-spell a person's name (e.g., "Klinton").

Ironically, street gangs have done this for years as a sign of disrespect for their enemies.

It's a juvenile, but effective, way for the writer to communicate that s/he does not accept the legitimate existence of the other person or thing.

I have asked politely before, and I will continue to do so in the future. Making it a hard and fast rule would be a little pedantic.

Lets not over do it people, most of us just do that in fun and don't mean any insults by it. I think if people can;t handle that little bit of kidding they ought to go somewere else.

I would beg to differ. Most people who do it do it with no humor intended in my opinion. It gets old and it shows disrespect.

I just always assumed that the web-site always treated these words (dodge and chevy) like it treated other 4 letter words. i think it is pretty funny, and a childish person will take it solely as an insult, and not as the toung in cheek jesture it was meant to be.
God, we need to lighten up around here!

Here's something really funny!
I thought that you couldn't spell DODGE or CHEVY on the site because of some "trademark" thing like the hats. Boy - I guess I was wrong.
I will need some practice on spelling those words.
