FP reserves the right to remove any comments or posts that: are considered likely to disrupt, provoke, attack; are racist, sexist, homophobic, sexually explicit, abusive or otherwise objectionable; contain swear words or other offensive language; break the law or condone or encourage unlawful activity. This includes violation of copyright, defamation, or other laws; advertisements for products or services; the impersonation of another person; the inclusion of contact details such as phone numbers, postal or email addresses; anything written in any language other than English; contain links to other websites which break our social media guidelines; describe or encourage activities which could endanger the safety or well-being of others; are considered to be ‘spam’; or are considered to be off-topic for the particular outlet or forum. However, we will NOT merely remove something because it offends you – if something offends you, either gracefully defend your position, ignore it or move on. We believe in the First Amendment and the freedoms is affords as much as we believe in the Second Amendment and the freedoms it protects. Please understand if you post something on this website you may have to defend your position – this is not a “safe zone” website.
Here at TheGunPoint we are all about free speech and the First Amendment. However, while we want everyone to have the ability to convey their message, we do ask that you do your best not to use profanity. We do understand that sometimes it may be difficult to really get your point across or find a replace for that perfect word so we ask that if you must use profanity that you do so in such way so as not to offend our younger readers.
In fact, over time, people have come up with various handy ways to insert profanity, or at least the recognition of profanity, without using the actual words. One of the oldest and easiest ways to do this is by inserting random %&$#[email protected]! symbols. This method has been used for years in newspaper comics and other forms of media. You can use the beginning and ending letter and then clean up the middle with symbols so those who need to understand exactly what you wanted say can do so with those who don’t just moving on.
Fun fact: The technical terms for a stream of symbols is “grawlix”, or “profanitype”.
