Yes. Our practice here is that when quoting the DUmmies and they use the "f" word (which is about every third post), we substitute asterisks for some of the letters, to wit: "f***," "f***ers," "f***in'," and the like. It captures the ambience without the offending vulgarity.

Well, as a pastor, I am familiar with human sin in just about every manifestation--and I myself am guilty of plenty of it. One thing I have never done, though, in my entire life is to let the "f" word come out of my mouth. I've said "d*mn" and "sh*t," but never "f***." It shows a poor vocabulary, if nothing else.
My apologies i did not even think about excerpting the F word bad decision on my behalf..My bad..
There is no better language teacher than he who defers to the language of the orthodox church! The earlier in life, the better.
