I've never really allowed profanity on my forums.

However, I'm trying to gear more towards a laid back attitude.

I've created this polls and would love your feedback about the use and allowance of profanity on this forum.

Basically, I'm considering turning the profanity filter off for most of the cuss words.

However, some words (like racist ones) don't have a place on this forum and using profanity to troll or harass someone would be a problem. Of course, sexual-profanity would also be prohibited.

Feel free to vote and reply with your thoughts.
