No cussing policy (community guideline)

krazykat1975

Maybe the REAL question is: Why do you find the need to cuss?

I despise the rule as well, but I understand the internet is full of people who will abuse the system. 

That said, I use chess.com not only to play random games, but games with old buddies of mine.  I'd want an opt-in system - maybe if both users agree to swearing, then it's fine?

In baseball, if you produce a rulebook to an umpire it constitutes automatic ejection.

HelloComposure

The player or the one who brings out the rule book, has been managers.

Well placed swear word can be exquisite. Many poets certainly thought so.

 

But I agree not around children in an inclusive place/community. Basic decency.

Private messages are the issue

who defines offensive content, vulgar language, and toilet humor? 

what if another member thinks your username, or, most everything you post, is offensive? 

 

did you read this topic? the majority of complaints refer to in-game chat between friends and pm's. not random forum posts.

Private messages is irrelevant. It's done on THEIR website. Respect the policy or don't. They're not going to change it for you. 

AlCzervik

It is a new-ish policy that has been changed for someone. Last time you trolled.
