In Topic: Wings stuff on clearance at Dick's

****'s is not a curse word filter on here is it?


Holy crap, it is.  Feels like I'm in the 6th grade.  



Lol, no doubt.  The last couple years, this has become one of the most overly PC and heavily censored websites I have experienced in my 15+ years of internet. 


Especially absurd when you consider this is a hockey website.





Relax, fellas. You're not in a police state.


A few years ago there was a rampant problem with overly gratuitous cursing on the forums (particularly in the GDTs, where scores of entire posts would be made up of nothing but f-bombs and such). The community was warned that if such behavior continued that a curse filter would be enabled. This curse filter is just a huge word blacklist that was loaded into the database -- it wasn't something that myself or one of the moderators simply added one by one, manually.


That said, the behavior continued, it grew tiresome to continually delete/edit posts that were going over the line -- and the curse filter was enabled. I hate the fact we have to have a curse filter here. It annoys me to no end. But if the community can't handle that maturely then it's here to stay.


"Dick" was an unfortunate victim of blacklist collateral damage. You should be happy to see your dicks have henceforth been freed.



In Topic: LGW Fit Club

Never posted in here before, but decided to stop with the excuses and get healthier back in late April. Bought a Fitbit and have been committed day-in and day-out since. Down almost 30lbs so far and averaging over 5 miles per day. Upping that over the summer to 7-10mi/day as long as the legs can take it. (So far, so good!)


I had the "I work too much" and "too hard with the kids" excuses for the longest time. Changed that by getting up prior to dawn in the spring and getting in 5 miles before work. If the evening schedule works out, it's 4-5 more miles.

In Topic: Official 2014 Olympic Hockey Thread (Admin warning #316)

A final reminder: Keep the banter civil, everyone, and within the forum rules. There have already been more than enough flame wars edited out of this thread, the next one will result in suspensions for all involved. If you're not sure your post is acceptable then don't bother posting it.


Keep the forums a place inviting for all nationalities. The mods, and I, are indiscriminate when it comes to enforcing the forum rules. Implying that your place of citizenship has any bearing on how discipline is handed out is a quick way to make sure you're the first one to get reprimanded.


As you (civilly) were.

Take home was around $75K.


Just to clarify this: the winning 50/50 ticket for the Winter Classic is worth $45,416 and still has not yet been claimed.
