Actually Wooffy, you'd be suprised to know how many children also enjoy the books and movies,and those "stupid website people" are usually just trying to keep things as clean as possable and some times go too far. :elfwink:
I was born to catch dragons in their dens
And pick flowers
To tell tales and laugh away the morning
To drift and dream like a lazy stream
And walk barefoot across sunshine days.

Where do you draw the line though? Censorship is just a matter of opinion. If I had one complaint about PT, it would be that the censorship is a little too tight. Some people allow anything, some go 'too far', it all depends on what they see fit.

BTW, is the Moby Dick problem fixed yet?

The real problem is obscene language is like beauty, it's in the eye of the beholder. Also, it is different in different cultures. The diminutive of Richard is seldom thought a euphemism around here, especially when capitalized, though it had been in the past. We have found some words are beyond the pale, are tame, or have no negative connotation whatever, depending whether you live in Great Britain, Australia, Canada, or the United States. Go figure.

My god. lil kids dont watch lotr!


Ummmm, Not true!!! My 9 year old son has seen both FOTR and TTT, granted he did not see them in the theater, but at home, and we could pause and explain things to him, but none the less he has seen them. He has also read part of the Hobbit on his own, and hopefully some time soon, we will read it together. He reads these forums and is very interested in learning more and more about Tolkien's world. He will probably will also see ROTK too.
So, yes kids do watch LOTR

I don't see the problem with using the word "suck". it's not even a swear. It's more of a slang.
Sheesh! Those American webrings...

It all depends, I reckon, on the way you use the curse. Obviously, ill intentioned coarse language can be a nusance. I talk with bad expressions all the time. But I never mean any harm. Its just quicker to think of "this piece of sh.." than of "the broken resistor inside this tiny space in the toaster." It´s harmless, not offensive, then it is admissible. Besides, not being able to sa... write what one wants suck!:elf:
