Against the vulgarity and filthy language - 01-27-2018, 06:45 AM

I have been shocked by the very filthy ,nasty language
that is occurring in the threads lately

i have been around the pool rooms for years,but it seems that
the depravity is gushing forth like i have never seen

it is enough to make a pirate blush,in my opinion
it exposes a mind of inferior abilities trying to impress us with a hammer blow as an appeal to reason


I am afraid to leave my computer on AZ when my wife or grandchildren enter
the room.

No doubt not a few of these vulgar types will take advantage of this request to try and shock me with their vulgar spewings

It appears we have cast off restraint and fear neither GOD or man

I make an appeal to the moderators to act to abolish this offensive
language in print while there is still time

Dean, alas, I fear we are witnessing general societal decline, aided and abetted by technology. People will say things on the internet that one would never consider saying to a person's face. Civility is going the way of the dodo I'm afraid.

You know I had the same thoughts as I was watching the action room stream with 2 young kids playing a set and hearing f-bombs in the background every other breath. One of the several reasons we can't grow pool, the 2 young men weren't dropping the bombs by the way. I know it goes on everywhere and I slip up myself sometimes but it's not televised for the world to see in a sport that needs all the help it can get.

Carom player's are 100 percent the opposite
Always gentlemanlike, always having fun, even with the person they are playing with

Carom isn't a battle like pool player's make thier games out to be
It's more about what can you do at the table

To hell with pool, it's toxic culture and ever increasingly quick easy games

Iíve found a few people who I really enjoy playing pool with. Other than them, youíre absolutely right. Pretty bad culture.

I will admit I can, and do cuss too much. I rarely do in posts online, but I do in person depending on the setting. Good reminder that there is always someone else listening.

You are correct.
Now I'm no prude I'm 70 years old and an ex combat Marine.
I've heard it all.
Back in the old days bad language was certainly used but it was somewhat tempered as to where you where and who was present.
The first pool room I hung out in was the early 60's no cursing allowed,it would get you thrown out.
Today i hear people use the F word every other word as they speak.Men and women.
And I've probably been guilty of this in some of my posts.
Dean welcome to 2018.

I haven't seen any of this and thought it was filtered here anyway. That being the case, or so I thought, I haven't bothered to use my extensive list of curse words in posts. I seldom spend much time here anymore, sadly. AZ ain't what it used to be.

Dean,

Some of the foulest language I've heard was blasted forth from the mouths of the supposed fairer sex. Try very hard not to swear whether in mixed company or with my male friends. Guess like you I come from an earlier and more polite generation.

I remember when comics could make me laugh without the use of a single foul word. Today our society seems to relish in how dirty the comics can be. Guess we have lost the ability to communicate with one another in a civil manner. Whether in person or electronically.

Lyn


Playing Cue - Sort of Straight
Break Cue - Broken
Jump Cue - Looks Great in my Case!
Wrap - None
Tip - Only When the Service AND Food are Good
Case - JB Cases 4 x 8 Custom Case. Joe Porper Vinyl 2 x 4 (Vegas). Joe Porper 2 x 4 Leather for storage (OK, it's empty)

Nicknames - Dead Money, Salamander, Tomato Can, Weekend Warrior, Short Stop, Banger, Ron Casanzio Wannabe, NIT and the recently added Lamb Slayer in no special order. Wow what a list!

Some people will have you believe that swearing is a sign of low intelligence and poor vocabulary. Admittedly people whose every other word is a curse word sound like idiots. Apart from that, I donít buy the idea that if you swear, youíre stupid and have a limited vocabulary. Some of the brightest people I know are the worst culprits. In fact, swearing is dealt with by a totally different region of the brain to language, with scientists arguing that swearing is tied to emotion and instinct, not intelligence.

Swear words add a new depth of meaning to a sentence it might otherwise have lacked. I guess the point Iím trying to make it depends on the text and or meaning the swear word was used. If it was meant as a derogatory remark directly towards someone I would agree thatís uncalled for but if itís meant to describe a feeling or an emotion I donít have a problem with that. Big difference in telling someone F-you as opposed to I was so F-ing angry, at least thatís my opinion.


We all make choices, but in the end our cocks make us.

I agree. There were a couple of posts in the action room thread during the spot shot match that were out of line. If you don't like the match, simply say so and move on. You don't have to go into detail of all the things you find more enjoyable.
