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.
