Are there rules about how much I have to censor myself?
« on: May 09, 2017, 10:53:38 AM »
I tend to curse a lot.  And I keep finding myself having to re-write things here.
What are the rules if I accidentally slip up?  I'm assuming I have to keep it PG right?
If it ain't broke, don't fix it, or break it so you can fix it!

I haven't seen you swearing so far, and with the work you've already put in researching Mac OS 9, that's quite an achievement.

I guess a curse word can slip without it really being a problem, as long as you don't end up writing a tirade. But I'm not a moderator.

This is because I fight really hard to hold it back.  In meat space I have no restraint.

DH would've banned me during the period of hacking and modding my 9600s if I'd have posted exactly what I said out loud during that time  :-*

The fact that you can restrain yourself when you think it's appropriate is very human and something many fail to achieve, certainly on the interwebs.

Does that make me a bastard if I'm not logged in?

I think the restraint comes from being at home when I post. I'm already in try to hold it back mode so my son doesn't start saying stuff at school.  Though I would rather enjoy that conversation with the teacher, not so much with my wife though.

So I can talk about the shit stain on my floor from when the dog fucked the cat up the ass and shit came out and I took pictures with my QuickTake and edited them in OS 9?


Alright I got that out.
Moving on...

It was a hypothetical question. I don't own a dog.

Wow, I thought I had a potty mouth from being raised in New York, but you have me beat. If you didn't mention "QuickTake and edited them in OS 9?" I would have sworn that was an Andrew Dice Clay comment.  The Google spiders are going to crawl all over this thread... and what will the world think of us :(

Well they already know we hang on to old hardware and refuse to put our life in-sync with the cloud.  But who gets the last laugh when the teenage nighttime operators who monitor all those servers are going thru their family photos.

I had to keep it relevant.  Actually that is fairly mild. Thus my question if something slips out.

This thread could probably be deleted. My question has been answered. Unless someone else finds as much humor as I do in the discussion.

You mentioned Bing.  That is awesome. I've actually started using bing over google.
