The community forums are a place where people can interact and have discussions about several different topics. However, we ask that you follow these guidelines to ensure that the forums have some productive conversation. Failure to comply with these rules may result in a ban from the forums or the entire site, as well as removal of posts and points!

- No flaming, badgering, spamming, or trolling.
- No discussion of piracy or illegal material, or linking to these illegal activities.
- Do not post material that is hateful or mean towards race, religion, sex, or any other offensive nature.
- Do not post for the sake of forum post count... your posts will be removed if we see you posting multiple 5-7 word posts just for points.
- Do not complain about getting banned, and do not make another account to circumvent a ban.
- Do not post links to lewd or offensive content. Keep everything Safe for Work.
- Do not post any personal information about you or anyone else. We don't want to know your street address.
- Do not post advertising or referral links.
- No excessive swearing or language.
- Turn off your caps lock, do not use excessive ALL CAPS in your posts.
- Do not copy or plagiarize comments.

Borrowed from the Rules and Guidelines page.

What is meant by "excessive" swearing? Whether or not something is excessive seems kind of subjective.

I always wondered about that too, does that mean you can swear occasionally?

Excessive swearing is a subjective term... Essentially, there's a line somewhere, and you may suddenly have crossed it. You're better off on the safe side, also known as not swearing at all.

Occasional use of the word crap is not really a problem. Just don't overuse it.

Was pondering on that word excessive maybe it should be changed?

Excessive -More than is necessary, normal, or desirable

What if i swear on a normal basis?

I need help with the 5-7 rule if the post only requires a few words why just put that for example i ran across a forum asking what your hair color is and same with race its kind of hard to expand on subjects like that knowing if you say "my hair color is black" will clearly answer the question
