    Hello chatters and members. I wanted to make a small complaint about a rule.

    Today in Open Mic I typed in the word Lying. and I was told by a moderator that the Lying word was profanity. I refrained from using the word, but I Wanted to make a comment about it.

    Aren't we grown ups here. How can Lying be a profane word. You can say Die, you can say kill, you can say death but you cannot say lie. I am sorry but I think we really need to look at this rule again if it exists.

    I would be lying if I thought this rule was not a bunch of BS. I am sorry but I feel that the word lying is not a profane word. I will refrain from using the word in Chat however,

    Manasiac :uzi:

    Hello Manasaic.

    The word lying is certainly not profanity; however, another chat/forum rule is not to disrespect other members. I was not present in the room, so I don't know what happened. But maybe the present moderator felt that you were disrespecting another member, that will certainly get you a warning. Again I don't know the exact situation, but if you have any question, it is best to speak with that moderator.

    The word lying is certainly not a ban word.
    I was not there so i really dont know the situation
    but as long as your not disrespecting a family member
    in using this word i see not a problem.
    But as you use the word/words please watch
    how you use them...Words are POWERFUL
    all by them self.

    Hello Brother MANASIAC ... i wasn't present either, and can't imagine a Moderator saying that the word "lying" is profanity. Which Moderator was it? In order to address this properly we'll need to know that.

    While i want to speculate ... suggest that they must have been kidding or something ... i won't since i didn't witness it ... :wink:

    I enjoyed hearing you on the mic tonight ... you are just too funny.

    Much Love Brother.

    :heart:

    Well anyway....what was the question :uhoh: oh....lol
    No, I don't think lying is a profane word.
    Was I there????
    Because I can't recall at this time.
    I think you should take it up with that Moderator because it may have been taken outt context.
    We are all family and I don't think there would be a problem if you went to that Moderator Manasiac
