What's so difficult (or offensive to you) about having a list (and possibly even a filter) for words that have been deemed offensive by the board? I'll never understand why people think it's better to have vague and amorphous rules when it's so simple to have bright line rules.
For your information, I don't use these words so I don't need a list. But given the nature of the board and the fact that many offensive words and phrases ARE tolerated, a list is the only way to put everyone on notice. Flopnuts put Roy and anyone else who happened to read that thread on notice about "raghead", but most of our membership didn't read that thread.
