Hey Lazorman...

there is an easy test to see if something you do or say is offensive...
Ask yourself... "What would my mom say...":whistle:

people dont like the childish behavior, cursing alone is not childish behavior.

fand just because people are cursing does not mean the "techs" are going to leave. which by the way is about half the people on this site. and if you mean the main techy posters that are always trying new things then go look over at photonlexicon and see all the "old" people cursing, its not offensive unless written in an offsive manner.

Honestly it is just a word, if we were not taught to think it was bad no one would ever care.

The thread should have been called "Is this an appropriate avatar." I don't have a problem with it but others do, like those with jobs who browse at work. So I thought I would personalize Lazorman's avatar for him.

From the rules:

You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually-oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy,
I don't find it offensive, though I do find it inappropriate, and it is against the rules.

I think it comes down to how you want people to see you. Do you want people to think your an uneducated person who's incapable of coming up with a true word that is not an explainative to describe what your trying to portray? Does it scream "look at how smart I am!"? If the answer to #1 is NO, and #2 is not a resounding YES then don't do it.

I understand that we have a large population of younger members and that has no bearing whatsoever on their ability to contribute to the forum in a positive manner.

I like the movie. Yes the word is a universal and commonly used one. But it just doesn't scream mature to me. :D
However there are some instances where an explainative is the ONLY way to convey the intensity your trying to convey. In this instance we use a non-vulgar misspelled version of the word we really want to use. IE Freaking or Frickin

I'll up the anty to my $.04

It's shoop da whoop, that's the Original Image. It should be left as it is. There are no such things as bad words.

Again it might not be entirely offensive to anyone here. But it doesn't have to be, for it to be deemed inappropriate, unnecessary, or immature. Forum hosts take great pride in the maturity of the members, and conversations held on their forums. I would take it up with coldshadow...

but personally, I beleive that If you have to think twice about something, chances are, are that you shouldn't be doing it.

I think that the use of "frickin" in your current avatar gets the point across just fine. Either that, or you might try a few random symbols.

HUGE #&%^@!&# LASER
