I am so glad the you took the time to post that, Fred.
I really am.
You and I go back and forth at times......
But you are more grounded that I am.
For reasons previously stated.

You have been nothing other than honest and reasonable with me.
Always. I can stand down when I am wrong. And stand UP when I am not.

Makes me who I am.

And you, Sir, are such a gentleman among us.

I thank you for being so.

shit, damn, hell and ass.
For these words we now have a free pass.
We're all adults,
and I hope the results
don't end up being too crass!

We should not abuse the privileges given.
I shall do what I can not to.
Could you also do likewise?

Not worry Mark. There's always the one, which is why all forums require moderators.

I do not believe it is up to SETI@Home to provide a private forum where people can discuss anything and say what they like.

This is not part of what SETI@Home is about.

If there are enough of you that want this it would be very easy to set up your own forum and invite people to join.

Please not here. With some of the post I have seen recently I do not even think the Politics forum should be hosted here at all!

The bottom line here is that we're all adults. Let's use our best judgment when posting, and try to show our complexity through mastery of our native language. I think you'll find that if you do that, you won't have a need to use cussing or swearing to get your point across.
This I agree with 100%

Given.

I am the worst child on the planet in that regard.

So, I cannot really call the kettle black.

An American Project & forum deserves an excellent quote from a famous American that can be applied to the people of the world.....

"You can please some of the people some of the time all of the people some of the time some of the people all of the time but you can never please all of the people all of the time.”

Thanks Fred.

Suggestion the "kid friendly" in the rules box on the left might be changed to PG-13 or reference it. Some might interpret it to mean the same "kid friendly" as the FCC does for broadcast TV which is considerably more restrictive.

And to clarify.......
My kids are who I wish them to be.
No biological thingys here.

YOU are my children.
And I wish to pass on to you what I have learned in this fleeting life.
And sometimes, that requires a bit of pain on your part.

That's what life is ABOUT, kids.
That's what life is about.

I carry on about this and that and THAT's what I sometimes need to tell you.

When I give you my little bits of life, that's what it's about.

My life.......I share some of it with you.
Some things, I cannot. Some, you wish I hadn't.....
I give you at times, my accumulated wisdom.
Or lack of same. My treasured music. My kitty stories........

I am not going to be here forever to share these things with you.

All those moments will be lost in time when I go.

And that, my friends, is my legacy. Left here for you to ponder.
My tears in the rain.
