I have to agree that we should watch our language when posting. We don't mean any harm by what we post, but I'm old-fashioned enough to care about the impression we make on others.
We never know who might find this site - possibly youngsters who do not hear bad language at home (although they probably hear it everywhere else).
Also, we have somewhat cast ourselves in a leadship role but giving advice and sharing our feelings with new members. There might actually be some who would not return to post if they were offended by the language they found here. We know how seriously we take all this, but a newcomer might misunderstand.
Finally, we always hope professional researchers and doctors will read the posts. They will not have the best impression of us if there is nothing but bad language and innuendo to read. End of lecture.
