Here is my simple request. Whether altered with a "*" or blatent, there has been a lot of foul language on this board recently. As civilized and educated adults who enjoy discussing and debating important issues of the day, it is important to do so in an adult and mature manner. I wish that people would find other, more acceptable methods of communicating their displeasure than using foul language. It is not only offensive to many, but it takes the focus off of the merits of your argument and places it upon the crude manner in which you choose to express your message. Thank you for your consideration.
