    Guys, Common.

    What is going on with this board? I'm resisting the temptation to throw any insults. Instead, an honest question.

     

    Why is the last name of a player all of a sudden blocked?

    Iman S[h]umpart 

     

    Why is a word so instrumental about talking basketball blocked?

    S[h]ot

    S[h]ooting

    S[h]ooter

     

    And finally, how old are we? Serious question. Are there toddlers on this board? Do we think there are 10 or 11 year old who come here to debate how Ainge should rebuild this team? Can we not be grown-ups and use normal american vocabulary?

    Starts with "flatu..."

    Hmmmmm..... flatus maybe?

    Still you have lots of options to describe "gassy."

    Get creative.

    Re: Guys, Common.

    while i would favor having none of these rigid, arbitrary and often ridiculous restrictions, what does it really matter? it's like trying to nail jello to a wall. you have already seen the various ways people have gotten around the limitations. is it really that big of a deal?

    in a small way it kind of forces a little more creativity.

    Thank you! Your, You're, there, their, they're, then, than, et al.  3rd grade stuff, really. Typos can be acceptable and honest excuses but the rest......

    However, when trying to type the word that is a man's upper garment worn under dress or casual garments is, like the other examples of an absurd policy, going too far.  Moderation should be done by a person not a program that cannot discern context and content.  We can't get any help with the obvious trolls who hijack thread after thread (not many around these days - the Fakers are losings nearly as much as the Celtics), but denying words in normal usage that have no offensive implications are beyond the pale.
