thread in a forum. If the staff finds that your question is better suited for another forum, it will be moved. Do not post multiple threads on the same topic.
The censors are turned off as we feel the members here are mature enough to handle it, and since a bit of swearing is not uncommon in everyday life, they're permitted here. However, excessive swearing or outright vulgarity is prohibited.
