My first couple years . I was very loose with my tongue . As I am in RL . In MP games . In my CC Forum . And even here in these Forums .
Nobody seemed to mind for a while . Even many others also let it fly . Even a couple few women .
But it was a couple few other stand up women that brought it to my attention that it just wasn't becoming , or professional , or for that matter mature . Especially being the leader .
At first I defended myself . It was my environment . It was who I am .
But after some more thought . I changed my stance on it . Completely . I stopped the profanity . Even the abbreviations . fck was my most common .
I found that it wasn't just women that found it uncomfortable . But many men as well .
So I stopped . I still have the desire to . But don't . At all . Occasionally I will comment that someone or something is an " expletive ". I use that word . It has good impact .
IRL I'm still as filthy mouthed as they come . But for over 7 years here . I no longer have that need . It's easy now .
In the chat one can type a n y t h i n g if they put a space between the letters . I don't even do that .
The general consensus has shown that there just is no place for it here .
