Agreed. In addition to their being no controls to prevent disclosure of content to minors or even young children, the use of such language reflects poorly on our professionalism and our cause.Can we get some posted rules to stop members from using foul language...abbreviations of foul language...words describing sexual body parts? There should be no references to the "F" word or sexual terms denoting body parts. This forum should be run professionally and the members who post should act accordingly. Most members who post uphold decency in their writing. Please, let's clean up OCDO.

If you come into my house, I can (and will) require that you watch your tongue and not swear around my family.
I've been wondering the same.You have an ad for a gun raffle.
(10) WE DO NOT ALLOW "FOR SALE/TRADE" OR RAFFLE ADS: We use Google Ads to help cover the expenses of the forum and their rules specifically disallow the sale of firearms, ammo and accessories (including the raffle of such).View attachment 8732
Oh crap, and a gun ad. View attachment 8733
Keep that up and a moderator will be around to show you the way to the egress..... If a 19th rule is established that describes what we can and can not say then swearing is on the table. Sorry if you don't like it but that's the way it goes.

See no need to have the equivalent of Robert's Rules. We have a simpler control:Keep that up and a moderator will be around to show you the way to the egress.
If you are the sort of person who needs to have each and every thing spelled out in columns of what you can and what you cannot do, then I suggest you go find a board that operates that way. My experience, although limited, suggests that the majority of such boards are affilliated with liberal/progressive politics.
AFAIK the issue of swearing/not swearing is not addressed via a rule because the users here have been able to self-moderate to the point that John or Mike have not seen the need to step in and publish a rule to cover the issue. If you feel it is necessary to ask them for a ruling on the matter you can do so. If you feel you can tell them that if they have not made a rule against swearing (or anything else) you must be allowed to do it then I want to get your autographed picture - I didn't know that there was a new Superman.
