Okay, so I'm a little confused on the ban on profanity on this site. I see people get reprimanded for it's use on the boards all the time (because it's supposed to be an all ages site), but I see profanity in the front page news articles all the time.

Provide the evidence to your argument.

I think he meant the profanity on the front page, which was seen in the interview with Scott Snyder with Snyder dropping the F bomb and going uncensored.

There is a bit of a double standard when it comes to offensive language on this site due to some users being tight with some mods, but there is no point in complaining about it because it'll just get the mods on your back while not changing a thing.

Whoa, apparently, the wambulance is on red alert. I didn't mean to offend anyone, I just knew from experience that there's no swear-word-filter in effect, so I figured it would be okay. I didn't mean to offend anyone, really.

But still, on an argumentative level, my point is proven: You apparently can't swear out your heart's desire. It will get censored manually.

And how dare you lot insult the donkey, the most majestic and awesome of all animals?

It appears I'm not alone in my opinion regarding this topic.

This is specifically what I was talking about. I've also seen Awesome Art Pics that featured profanity. I should have probably said sometimes I see articles that grossly break the profanity rules. Also they go don't seem to go as hard on people in the comment section of the news articles as they do in the forums.

You have a point there too, I guess lol.

Having a profanity ban here is stupid.

It's Whiskey Media, there are links to other sites at the bottom that have dire amounts of profanity.

You either ban it all or you let the sh*t fly.

Plus, having CV listed as a "kid-friendly" site only perpetuates stereotypes. What? Like video games aren't also thought to just be for kids? Bull.

@InnerVenom123: Yeah, I agree. I read an article on another comics website about the DC Comics readership survey and it said that less than 2% of their readers are under 18. I don't think that many people get deep into comic books before their teens.

There is no double standard...
