We ask that you refrain from excessive swearing. We do have younger users here, and those who don't care for cursing. I can understand that it sometimes happens, and the occasional swear may get by us. What we absolutely will not allow is cursing at another user. If it's starred out, don't go back and try to still get the word to show. There are other words you can use to express yourself. We can only be so lenient.
It's not that strict. It's just stopping excessive, user targeting, and swear evading. And the rules may only be here for a week or so, depending on how people comply with them.
