    Context should be considered over content in my opinion. One can insult without swearing and swear without insulting. Obviously each individual will have different ideas as to what is acceptable in terms of profanity (if any), but an intent to offend or provoke is generally easy to determine.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    I've been a member here for a few years now and have learnt a lot and hopefully contributed positively at times. Being from West Yorkshire I swear at the drop of a hat but wouldn't use it offensively or deliberately to upset another member.

    I have at times been offended by certain opinions on certain threads but have learnt to withdraw from them before my temper and swearing kicks in. I value this forum for what it is - a place to share our love/obsession of music and hifi, nothing more.

    I think a lot of folk have found friendship as well as comradeship here;I know I have many here I regard as fiends....ooops friends , even if maybe they dont... that is outwith ones control.
    Again there are few forums that give folk the chance to complain so think yourselves lucky

    A forum is nothing without its members by definition - ensuring peace and harmony is a difficult thing

Even more weirdly, when someone pointed out the 'three words daily' thread for comparison, he was told by the moderator that twd is a 'light-hearted' thread where, by implication, such language was OK.

    Now, I seldom use bad language, being the polite person I am, but it would be good to know which words are or are not OK. pfm has a 'swear filter', where the forum software censors certain words, leaving asterisks in place of letters, so the job is done for you. But what's OK on AoS language-wise?

    I'm not sure what you think my agenda is. I simply asked for clarification about what words are OK to use on AoS, because i wanted to know. If you think I have a deeper agenda, perhaps you could share your idea with the rest of us, rather than making gnomic remarks?

    I can sympathise with Anthony's view, Joe, because let's face it, if there's a likelihood of anyone 'poking' how things are here, and sometimes what's said by certain people, it's liable to be you - and as you know, you've been warned about it before

    Anyway, let's move on.
