Reminder: Keep it clean


In recent days, I've found myself having to edit an unusually high concentration of posts in this forum, due to inappropriate language.

Please remember that we have an acceptable use policy which clearly prohibits the use of words that are offensive, indecent, abusive, hateful, harassing, libelous, profane, vulgar or unlawful. There's a lot of words and phrases that fall under these descriptions, and if you wonder if I'll object to it, I probably will.

If you are simply copying and pasting a joke in from your inbox, then it's your responsibility to carefully read and edit out any corrupt communication before pasting it in.

Thanks, and let's keep this forum clean!

Dave, I appreciate the standards you have set for this site. I agree with your policy of keeping it clean. However, I would like to see it even cleaner than it is. Occasionally, I find some jokes a little crude.

Thank you for the encouragement. We found that the vast majority of the site prefers the standards we enforce.

It's impossible for us to see every post in every thread and therefore we very much rely on the assistance of the members to alert us when a problem arises. Next time you see a joke that you consider to be outside of the bounds of what's acceptable here, please do click on "Contact us" at the bottom, and give us the link to the thread so we can deal with it.

Harrod, OH

Hello! I am very new here, too and I want to say how grateful I am to "Dave" for keeping such a great "garden site" here. It is a wonderful place to come in the early hours of the morning when I can't sleep. There are so many areas to choose from and it is CLEAN.
Thank you very much. I now come here off and on during the day and night. It is fun.
I do not know how all of this works but I will learn.
God Bless Dave and God Bless America!

Yeah, I love the fact that my GrandKids can look at anything they want to on this site and I don't have to worry ^_^

the Mountains, CO(Zone 4a)

here in 2013, talking clean and with some sort of class/decency is unimaginable to most Americans. what a sad thing.

Gainesville, FL

Kudos! Someone who stands up for what is right! If I ever say anything that is not right bump me off just as fast as you can. You know sometimes words can have double meanings. I for one stand behind you 100%.
