myLot's Rules on being Politically Correct.
March 12, 2007 8:35am CST
I just attempted to post a discussion a discussion quoting the ten commandment and guess what! I was guilty of breaking one of myLot commandment I used a word which is the other name for a donkey (a$$). At first I thought where did I use an incorrect word. when I found it I really what surprised and then I found it funny! Don't you think that sometimes myLot is taking things too far? I have seen many worse words than that which can be disguised to fool the system.

I find some rules on various sites rather funny. I wanted to get rid of a load of brass ornaments and I tried to list them all. One of them was a brass peacock and I the site wouldn't accept the word. I then changed it to a brass peahen and added an explaination as to why I called it a peahen. Now I am going to copy this response just in case my 'peacock' is unacceptable.

yes sometimes mylot do go overboard on what words we select to use. i find it odd that they wont let you post certains words.when i see alot of nasty words.that should have been blocked out.but i see nothing with a$$.but its kinda hard to fool the system.but members do it all the time.

Yes I had the same problem with the same word. Problem with banning some words is that they mean different things to people from different countries or different cultures. You only have to watch American films these days where they are full of words with only four letters, begining with f and ending in k, and it seems to be usead as a term of endearment over there, but is still not a word that I like to see or hear. Perhaps someone should start a contest trying to find how many different words that we can get banned that are actually all right in the context that they are used. Example (taken from other responses here), My A**(almost a donkey), and my pea****(hen) ate some turkeys' b****t (white meat).
