I see nothing in the rules that says "PG-13," but I do see "Swearing is frowned upon," which that would fall under.

PG-13 films are allowed one F-bomb. I think the rules should be amended to clarify that no F-bombs are permitted.

Is there any post in particular that you're concerned about?

No, but I had a post deleted years ago for dropping an F-bomb.

I'm not sure the language filter will even let you use the F word these days.

Exactly. There's really no need for us to make a list of words that will and will not get you in trouble. It also depends on the context in which you use them

We've filtered the "F word," but quite honestly, there are cases where we wouldn't moderate a post just for using it, or other similar words...

The rules are meant to be guidelines. We expect our members to use their judgement, and people with poor judgement will be dealt with by the moderators (a little hand holding / wrist slapping at first, and hopefully that is all that is needed). This is why I don't want the rules to be overly complicated.
