I don't get it…

If you wrote a "bad world" and it appeared the "bleep" signal in its replacement… you still have to go to the dawghouse?

Apart from that …. 3 days for insulting some dice ?.
It's not much?….

He bypassed the bleep by misspelling the word. You break the rules you do the time.

We have no place for the F-bomb in the war room.

Hey, dice are sacred to miniature wargamers. If you permit speaking ill of the dice to go unpunished, the dice are capable of a terrible revenge.

It looked to me like he was referencing the French Connection retail clothing chain but mucked up the spelling! Their logo is FCUK (stands for French Connection UK).

Of course, if you are unaware of the company you may misinterpret the logo….

Lol. For a second I thought I was becoming dyslexic! Or I guess I just have a dirty mind. :)

The "bleep" was done manually by the editors, Tango01.

He knew what he was doing. Deserves the punishment.

Many thanks dear Gwen… (smile)

Then I must understand that the "bleep" does not work automatically? … or does it just for some other words?…

Tango, if a word is purposely misspelled the bleep won't recognize it.

Does this example count as speaking ill of those who can't speak up for themselves?

Well I hope not, because this is a great learning opportunity for those who think that all they have to outsmart is a computer program.

The comments posted here fall well short of taunting, mocking or speaking ill of.

Tango01 Supporting Member of TMP28 Jul 2017 12:40 p.m. PST

Ah!… thanks for your guidance my friend.

Deephorse, I agree with you.

Thanks for the sentiment, Armand.

I kind of felt the need to add some profanity for emphasis :-)

As deephorse noted, I knew what I was doing ,-)

Dwindling Gravitas Inactive Member29 Jul 2017 5:39 p.m. PST

And I don't feel that I have been taunted, mocked or "spoken ill of" … :-)

Tango01 Supporting Member of TMP29 Jul 2017 10:56 p.m. PST

Happy to hear about you again my friend!… (smile)

Be aware with the "bad dices"!… (smile)

Don't most grassroots initiatives take longer to get momentum than the average DH sentence?

BTW, I do hope to get sent to the Legion 4 Suite when it is my turn …
