I didn't mean to imply the admins were loosening their standards [In reply to] Can't Post

I meant to say that we, the users, are pushing the boundaries. The user in question (someone around long enough to know our family friendly code) posted two posts with what I would consider a swear word in the subject lines of two different posts. I worried that this was becoming a comfortable means of expression with that person and would be adopted by other people.

But I hate calling people out so I just phrased it such that admins would take a look. Thanks for doing that.

I don't know, in what culture, either of those words, used in the context they were used, are anything other than cursing. There are levels of cursing, for sure. But I think neither were really necessary to make the point and would be considered cursing even by people who curse. (And I curse) And as I said before, I just ignore it in the body of text and the subject lines of posts that are other than the Initial/Original post. I just cringe to see it in the subject lines of original posts. I even ignored the first instance. It was the second that made me bring it.
