@razzatazz I had a discussion with a mod about this a few weeks ago about this very thing. I decided not to pursue it at the time but here it is again so I might as well ask. Swearing is unacceptable but swearing with one letter taken out and a * put in its place is ok. According to that Mod.
Is that the rule for Comic Vine?
That is within the rules, yes.
Pointless rule. Replacing a letter with a * doesn't really change anything.
That's what I thought but as we just found out....
I don't make the rules, I just enforce them. Just a point to note, that the swearing in this way still has to be in context. You can't call someone "a "f***ing idiot" for instance (btw that middle word is not "farming")
I really did LOL there. This 1 letter thing doesn't make to much sense.. Specially when your own rules say you have to block out words in pictures. Your *** actually shows you're trying to be one self but understand the rules. The one word * doesn't do jack because people brains still see that as swearing.
Not arguing just discussing. =)
PS I would hit the flag button for saying that but if he had just used *** and the first letter that would be far superiorer.
