    Come on, folks!  Surely you are more articulate than to use
    profanity/slang to get your point(s) across!  I still get messages
    in the queue with profanity.  Just remember that this is a U.S.
    Government sponsored list, and even though some of the words you
    might want to toss into your message may seem to be commonly used,
    as though you were having a nice conversation with your friends at
    the bar, please try your best to be a little more circumspect.  You
    may even be tempted to do what one other Coral-Lister did and throw
    in the typical cartoon representation of a swear word:  *#$^@&, but
    ask yourself if that's how you want to be seen by almost 9,000
    people who will read your post.  Think of it this way:  you wouldn't
    write that way if you were writing for a peer-review journal or a
    magazine.  We try to keep Coral-List a cut above mud-slinging and
    profanity, so please do your part.

    Please re-read what you intend to write before pushing the Send key.
