HOW TO: Swear


(Richard Morris) #1

So we’d rather this was a friendly site for everyone, because all kinds of people get Diabetes.

We know that there are some people who regard salty language as profane, and others find any form of language censorship of adults as equally profane.

No way we can square that circle. Someone will be pissed off, and leave and that is one less person we can help.

So we’re going to suggest a compromise.

When you want to swear, add the spoiler tag to it. So when you want to write


Fucking


Select the “UCK” and click on the cog button and select blur spoiler.

That way your point it’s made and if someone wants to find out what you said they can click on the blurred out bit and expose it. And people who don’t want to be exposed to profanity can scroll on by and pretend it’s not there.

I guess I’m just old fashioned.

Usually, its Microsoft and Apple Products that make me swear…Siri has a tendency to get testy if I do…


#5

How can I do this on my iPhone?


(Richard Morris) #6

No fucking idea

Ahh you have to type out the [ spoiler] [ \spoiler]

Maybe you can autocarrot it - set up autocorrect for fuck to f[ spoiler]uck[ /spoiler]


#7

Ok. I’ll have to be pretty motivated to cuss then. No dropping f bombs Willy nilly.


#8

I made a text file for the tag. But I’ll try auto carrot…

Fucking

Nope. Mine ignores special characters.

Tried a different keypad. Same thing.

This made me laugh out loud this morning. Methinks the code doesn’t work in thread titles.

I got a good laugh out of it too! A great lesson though… :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

a teachable moment :slight_smile:


(jketoscribe) #12

The correct answer is B.


(Richard Morris) #13

Also I’ve learned that women who swear, are women who care.

Men? It’s not so correlated.


(AnnaLeeThal) #14

I’m a nurse, and I swear like a sailor.


(Tom) #15

Can confirm. Nurses often have bigger swearing vocabularies than cops, firefighters, construction workers, and some branches of the military.


(Brenda Zorn IDM Educator) #16

Yes @acrunchyfrog
Does not work in titles! We learned that this day.
And Richard thought it was so funny he said to leave it as is. Lol

Good lesson on how to make a spoiler indeed.

Me too on both counts. But I work in a ghetto hospital.


(Stephanie Hanson) #18

We’re exposed to tons of patients who teach us.
