We need some kind of swear box!

Postby SparklePetal » 30 Sep 2013, 20:36

For when we type the k word that is. I have now done it twice and totally not noticed until I got my little emails telling me my naughty post had been approved! What can we do to acknowledge our guilt and give ourselves a virtual wrist-slap? The precious time of the green ones should not have to be spent mopping up my typing accidents!

I'm extremely guilty of this and would be happy with a k box. Good idea.
In my heart I am Rascalpup, a name awarded during battle with one persistent spammer. I like to think ironside but with sarcasm rather than an axe.

Slightly horrified by my huge number of posts.

I've done it a few times :( Why don't we have a universal word we use instead of the K one for that area. Everyone would soon get used to it and then we would all write it without thinking.

but then I'd start using the alternative in real life and end up entirely ostracised from polite society! I already struggle not to use 'DH' in everday speech!

Haha I've actually done that a couple of times :) and with 'DS' & 'DD'

What about something like 'The Lab'? You mix and make stuff there so seems suitable.

There were a couple the other day, directly after I'd had a RL conversation with Twinkly about how I hadn't seen any for a while! They're watching and listening :wink:

Me too.

But what I want to know is what's the K-word etiquette? I mean is it better to edit and re-post or leave it for a green superior to release the original?
