Peace and Blessings Family,

@One-Hundredd joined and brought this topic up, reminding me that I have softened on the fact that it is not currently allowed here.

It is one of our banned words, not allowed. If you use it, it will be asterisked out. That has not changed at this point.

I am not sure it will change, as it will be difficult to moderate one's intent - is it respect or disrespect.

For that reason, I cannot see our policy on the word changing - but I"m certainly open to persuasive argument.

My primary concern is the management of this community, maintaining our peace and purpose.

Not one word (or person) will be allowed to hinder us or make an already challenging task moreso.

Though again, if there is a way to have the word, without risk to the above, I'm game.

Please share your thoughts and vote in the poll.

Much Love and Peace.

:heart:

Destee

Perhaps in the poetry and story section only?
It's already used by writers, musicians and any actors videos we post in the entertainment area.
On the more generally used open forum pages though? I can only speak for myself but I know how I'll feel and probably react the first time some Wonder Bread thinks they're going to get cute.
So color me very ambivalent leaning no.

Destee you created a higher standard, don't lower it for the sake of a word that is useless, disrespectful and destructive.

Thank you.
Peace and Blessings Family,
I am not sure it will change, as it will be difficult to moderate one's intent - is it respect or disrespect.

It's no wonder everyone is crazy. A word that was created to disrespect our ancestors, yet we want to say it with love. Do you see jewish people greeting each other with "heil hitler" because they mean it in a good way lol.

smh

Thank you for all you do Destee.
