One would have thought that common sence would have come to the fore regarding that.

Agreed, basically I don't think that anyone could purport to have a problem with the language used in this forum. So as a wise man once said "if it ain't broke - don't fix it."

Smilie If it had been an IT Manager, they might have said "If it ain't broke - break it and better it."

I'm ok with that. It hasn't been a real big proble in the past and I have no reason to think that it will suddenly flare up into something really unprofessional.

Sorry, I've been away....

I trust the moderators have done a great job of keeping the posts and threads professional while I've been away for a month, thanks!

Regarding profanity, in the past I normally have deleted posts with profanity because profanity does not add to the value of the posts and is offensive to many.

For me, I assumed that "no impolite remarks" translates to "no profanity" because profanity is not considered polite.

When the posts that has profanity has technical merit, I have often (in the past) just edited the post to be less offensive. I would encourge moderators to do the same.

I'll be back in action in about a week, BTW. - Neo
