Default Offensive language

Historically, the Forum’s software has been set to block certain words and terms we considered to be inappropriate for use on the site. Typically, the words and terms included were those that are crude, vulgar and/or involved racial epithets.

The filtered list was not comprehensive and moderators tried to show some tolerance if the word/term was altered enough so as not to be blatant.

It has turned out to be an exercise in futility and a time-consuming endeavor the moderators have not been able to keep up with.

Going forward, moderators will review reports of offensive language where it is used to convey hostility toward other Forum members. They also will monitor for excessive posting of offensive language by individuals. They will not permit expletives in thread titles or user IDs nor will racial epithets be allowed in any context.

As a courtesy to other site users who access Corvetteforum at work, please add the designation NSFW to the title of any thread that may contain offensive content or links to videos with offensive content.

The judgment of moderators will be final in such issues.
