So apparently you can't say the dreaded H-E double hockey sticks on this site. I was told this by a moderator by the name of rocksaysits420. I was caught off guard by this because of two things. Why is a word like (heck), which is a fictional place that can be said on the TV and radio, be changed on this site? Besides the obvious remark that this is a violation of my constitutional rights, I came to realize that most, if not ALL well run forums require the member to be 18 and older! So I guess (heck) is just too PG-18 rated for this site. Shoot. Dang. Heck. What the heck. Anyway...rocksaysits420 told me about this rule, but then I caught on the fact that you cannot SWEAR, but can have open DRUG references in your name. IF THAT'S NOT KID FRIENDLY I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS! Hipoccracy, thy name is sportscardforum.com

I've said hell many times on this particular forum....

Then again, this is the P&R forum where some people believe hell is a very real thing.

Talking about kid-friendly stuff, would anyone like to know a little bit more about hell...you know, that place MILLIONS of American Christians believe is very true?

Hell is a place of horrible torment where billions of souls are in a never ending state of suffering and will remain there for literally ALL eternity, a trillion years will pass and they will still be there....and who sent them to this place?

Why the most evil of beings....the devi....oh wait, it's not the devil that sends people to hell, then who does???

Oooooohhhh.....that's right, it's the loving and just Christian God that sends people to hell.

Cuz, you know, an unforgivable sin such as not believing in him (for example) completely merits a sentence of eternal damnation.

Boy, this Yahweh guy sure is reasonable...

Err....anyway, yeah, hell is a very tame word in today's standard of slang and cursing.

And with this statement you show that you are either-
A- Very Ill Informed
B- See Above.

Well that did not take long to derail a thread.

I am not going to bother with this too much as thankfully it isn't my job to deal with this crap anymore. I just want to point out one thing. It is not your Constitutional right to say anything you want on a privately owned website. Your right of freedom of speech does not extend to other people's property.

Also, since when you joined the site you clicked that little box saying that you had read and agreed to all of the rules of membership, even if your Constitutional rights applied, you forfeited the right to say anything you want by agreeing to not say anything you want in exchange for membership as the rules clearly outline that certain language is unacceptable.

With that said, I am pretty sure hell is not a blocked word.

Hell can be said. Any word can be said on this site as long as it isn't censored (there are a lot of words that are censored but hell isn't one of them). If somebody told you that they are wrong and you should probably fight it / correct them.

Why did you take this public? If you have questions about how something was moderated, the Chit-Chat forum isn't the place. PM the mod in question, or another mod, if you think something is unfair, and get it resolved that way.

That said, that word is seen as mild cursing in some contexts (in the heaven vs. hell context, it obviously isn't). I can't remember how SCF handled that one back when I was a mod, if it was considered severe enough to censor, etc. But again, just PM the mod or another mod and get it figured out/handled that way.

It's ultimately not that big of a deal.

Totally with you on this.

My original screenname here was High-FivingMF. It's a song by Local H. I was told I had to change it. Hence my name.

That's even dumber than what happened to the original poster. Though for the record I do like your username now better.
