I want to see curse words

How do I see fuck instead of 'f '? I noticed that when you reply to a post, you can see the whole word.

edit: bunch of word nazis. I was just asking if its an option. I mean... we have user accounts.

edit 2: after the warm reception, I gotta ask what's the point of putting this in the footer? (the 'different site' is a link to disney)

i want to see curse words

question,is there a button to push or tab to be checked
for me to see the curse words?

question,will the DP install a button or tab to check
so others can see curse words?
this would have saved a lot of stress and time,by asking
the questions you wanted answers
this could have been taken to the MOD box also(that's the brains)
the bridge,if you will

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

I did ask the question that I

I did ask the question that I wanted answered. You read the question that you wanted to bitch about.

Sorry for not being an expert daily paul user. At this rate, I'll never be. Apparently there's a song and dance and purification ritual I need to go through first before asking questions about how to use the site.

I like it the way it is.

If potty words are what you are into, you can go watch movies or go outside your door, or read other blogs on the internets. It's hard to find places where you can go without hearing foul language....maybe a daycare or church. It's nice not having to hear or read it constantly.


waste of reading time

What are you trying to accomplish?

think he's trollin' for attention, and his question/request has already been answered.

*looks for flush handle*

dude... you're trollin for

dude... you're trollin for Micheal's attention. You're all trolling. None of you bothered to say that there isn't the button. You just trolled. Shit, it wasn't until Michael's third or fourth rude post where he answered the question.

I wanted his "attention" bad enough, I'd call him on the phone or email him.
The point is HE ANSWERED your question ALREADY, but you keep popping up like one of those creepy inflatable boppo clowns, looking to get punched in the face again.
Is there really not something more important you could obsess on?

Go back and read his answer again while you ponder why you can't respond on this stupid thread any longer.

LOL this is ridiculous.

LOL this is ridiculous. Micheal, this site is going in the sewer without swear words. I was trying to find out where the filter setting is, which I assumed was there mistakenly.

However the new base of your site which loves watching people shout at each other, has insulted and shouted me down, almost starting with you. You've all been much more crass than most sailors, and without swearing. Do neocons secretly want to see the swear words too or something?

Lets start with what I wasn't trying to accomplish. I wasn't trying to find out a bunch or losers opinions of swearing.

So what I am trying to accomplish? I started trying to find a button that's not there. Now, I'm trying to figure out what went wrong in this community.

Plus Micheal, I've seen you treat other members this way and it always stuck in my craw. I don't know why you're so snarky to the people who respect.. respected you. I guess it's the same old problem everyone has when they get stuck in a bubble of yes men. They can't stand someone anymore who 'doesnt know who i am'. I mean, look again at the demeaning way you've addressed me in every single post. You never even asked what I meant. You assumed you knew, thought I was wrong because you actually didn't know, and proceeded straight to nasty. I mean... "Hey kid". Gimme a break. You took 20 minutes to write a post about how wrong I was and didn't even bother to check if I was wrong. You took another 5 minutes to pontificate on lazy writers and still couldn't check to see if I was correct. I posted a screenshot and I'm guessing you haven't bothered to check that. So hey kid, why are you like this? I'm dying to know if you'll ban me or not for standing up to you.

(And if you want this on for everyone, all the time, I could care less. At least do it right. As it stands, the search bots can see the swear text but your members can not... which is why i assumed it was a setting.)

What I struggle with...

What I struggle with is my pride and my wrath.

I don't use "curse words" and don't want to hear them, but that doesn't mean I can't be an extremely vulgar man. I DO know that when I fail and start becoming vulgar, everything I hoped to accomplish gets destroyed.

Profanity is for the

dull of mind.

Yeah, I know people who use words like Plebian to describe me feel that way about curse words. Snobs.

This is you, Rhysw.

Read the article to see yourself in the mirror.


lol you're so arrogant. The

lol you're so arrogant. The irony of your post is astonishing. For one, that's not even a study of my generation. I cannot relate to facebook twitter kids. This mirror you held up is distorted and cloudy.

Yes Sir.

Profanity is not really

Profanity is not really beneficial to us nor is it probably beneficial to the operation of this privately owned website.

Many people are completely turned off by profanity. It's not necessary to communicate that way, although there are many who do not know how to communicate without using profanity, many in my own family included.

Foul language just makes the communication foul, it does not aid in making your points.

From the website management perspective, significant use of profanity can cause the DP to lose rank in Google and other search engines. Profanity also might trigger advertising network filters which then would prevent the higher paying brand advertisers from spending their ad dollars on the DP (many companies do not want their brands to be associated with sites that use consistently use foul language).

Having it as an option in accounts to turn the filter off would be good for those who want to see it, though.


A few things....Google cant

A few things....

Google cant index my logged in account because it doesnt have my password.

It doesnt matter because the swear words arent removed from the page. They're made the same color as the background. This is meaningless to Google because Google is colorblind.

Last.... You don't read Matt Taibbi's blog at Rolling Stone? Every other word is a swear word. He's one of the most effective communicators in the business. You're whole premise is based on an old (prudish) wives tale. Its not true. It's something pretentious people say to sound better than others.

Swear words are like guns in a way. They're not foul, the people who use them poorly are.

you are right

I never noticed that when you reply to someone's comment you can see the swear words in their entirety. Now that you pointed it out he will probably fix it ;-)

But you make a good point, since they aren't being deleted in the database, then they *could* be shown as a user option pretty easily. On the other hand, I think he is trying to discourage their use on this site which is fair enough since it is his place.

Personally, I like to let people be whoever they are. Express themselves how they will. It shows the real backgrounds we all come from and the passions. But that is just me.


...even in Alex's rant, they never had to beep any words he said. Kinda like a gentleman's rant...lol! Ron Paul doesn't use them either=). To each their own.

yeah, shouting in someone's

yeah, shouting in someone's face out of the blue is now my role model. I will never curse again. I will just start shouting.


If you see a car coming my way when I'm crossing the street...PLEASE SHOUT at me! Maybe it's the only way I will be warned of the danger ahead!

rofl fine. i'll warn you if

rofl fine. i'll warn you if you're about to be hit by a car and i'm near by.


Thanks! =)

I want to see good manners,

especially on a site that promotes Ron Paul, the epitome of good manners. A place that has good manners is a place where much good can be accomplished by the most people.

The comments over on Prison Planet wallow in the sewer, and needless to say, less than nothing is accomplished by them. One of the reasons DP is a good site is because of Michael's rules.

Good manners, which is putting the other person's comfort ahead of your own selfishness, is something "libertarians" would be wise to learn.

yeah. great. i want to see

yeah. great. i want to see words as they're typed. i'm not asking for anything other than.... how do i turn off the filter.

Are you proud of yourself for being so pious?

"i want to see words as they're typed"

Just hit reply, or add comment, and type out your body of text. Then, sit there and stare at it for a little while as your trigger finger hovers over the send button. That's what I generally do when I get a case of "forum tourrettes syndrome."

This way you can stare at the words in all their glory with no missing letters.

If you still want to hit send then roll the dice. Or grab a piece of paper, as was suggested.

What's the point of continuing to argue when the owner of the house has already asked that you try to remember to take your shoes off before you enter his house? It's a small fish in the big sea of things...but it's the principle. Respect.

Curse words can spice up a comment or point, but they can also ruin the whole dish. I've certainly ruined a few.

yeah.... that's all so great.

yeah.... that's all so great. You're mom's are so proud.

But you're all annoying. It's like you got your jollies by being pretentious. I don't really care. I posted what I thought would be seen by one person and they'd say... 'click over here'. Not to mention, if you don't want to see swear words, you probably should avoid posts with titles like these.

Now go take your whistle clean vocabularies and your sunday bests and go be phony on someone else's post. I may delete this one in the morning.

My Lord, seems like people

My Lord, seems like people are more afraid of swear words than their own government.

Blame the words, not the persons.

-9 ?

Seriously? I thought the pro Ron Paul people were libertarians at heart?

Blame the curse words! Not the message...

How about blaming the message instead of the swearing itself?

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

" I thought the pro Ron Paul people were libertarians at heart"

so you should clearly understand why we respect (or try, sorry Mike) the property owners wishes.
