    Bumping this again. We are still seeing a lot of posting that violates this rule. Here it is from the site rules:

    "Please don't post it here if you wouldn't say it to your grandmother. Posts containing explicit, obscene or vulgar language, images or links to websites with adult content/images or punctuation marks designed to 'trick' our obscenity filter will be removed. There is a zero tolerance of profanity, vulgarity and masked vulgarity; any posts which contain such are subject to deletion. R2R prides itself in being a family friendly and work safe website and we ask that members keep it that way. Posting of topics containing situations or products that are not family and under age friendly is not permitted. Political discussions, statements, or rants are strictly prohibited."

    Guys, we realize that some of you don't consider certain words offensive, but we have people of all ages and viewpoints that are part of our community, so please avoid using words that you know others may consider to be offensive.

    We will be deleting posts that violate this rule and issuing warnings for the violation.

    Btw, if you see that our filter posts asterisks (*****) in place of a word in your post, then it is not allowed. If you notice a post you make has this (or something that our filter has not caught but should have), please edit your post to keep it within our guidelines (or contact a staff member if you are unable to edit as we can edit it for you).

    Guys, lately the vulgarity/profanity use is happening a lot more frequently. Unfortunately, that means we're going to have to be stricter on those posts once again. Please help us out by avoiding words that may be offensive to others (even if they aren'toffensive to you), and also avoid abbreviations that involve those terms. Thanks!
