If you don't know why a thread entitled "Fuck this all..." isn't appropriate for the front page or why it got deleted after you restored the original title, it's not worth explaining.

I didn't edit the title but did delete the thread after you changed it back. That's all the explanation I'll bother with on this one.

The title the elves selected was much more descriptive.

See, I would have seen the change and thought, "huh, I guess I was too offensive, oh well." As long as the content of my message was basically the same, I would have then forgot about the edit and continued learning in the thread.

But Stef you made this about YOU and YOUR FREEDOM and YOUR RIGHTs. :D So now the thread is gone (it had a bunch of good advice from experienced climbers), and you have to find a new website to post it on just so you can have your exact title line.

Ever heard the expression a "mountain out of a molehill?" Sometimes we create our own problems! Anyway, good luck with the big walls man!

But using this in a post is allowed? Posted by yourself!

Was he referring to you? :lol:

No, actually you are 'arsed' with the edit from Bob. And like MVS already stated, you ARE making this about yourself since no one else seems to have a problem with your title being edited.
Calling attention to yourself because you're not getting your way and validating it by indirectly saying that your 'rights' are being impinged upon in the name of censorship is pretty weak, dude.
The ONLY REASON to use offensive languare, language that I'd say most people would find crude, low-brow, elementary and in my opinion, a sign of weak intelligence when used in this context, is to draw attention to yourself because it's still viewed as "attention-getting" and vulgar no matter how often one chooses to use it.
Obscenities can be useful in certain contexts and do provide a purpose but not how you did. Your intentions were to merely 'stir up the pot'...nothing more...nothing less.
IMO, the Elves should have deleted your thread sooner.

You know, sjarelkwint, I've paid attention to the stuff you've posted here on SP for some time and the overriding majority of the drool you do post is useless and stupid.
I personally think you're useless in as far as helping to build SP into a site that people can go to for viable beta without the political BS that riddles other sites.
Why don't you, for once, try posting either CONSTRUCTIVE information to the boards or God forbid, try putting up a mountain/range/list et al. page for your geographic area.
YOU are a perfect example of someone touting their personal freedoms at the expense of the quality of the medium you're using to do your crying. Kleenex must be cheap in Bulgaria.
And CAN quote me on all that.

Trust me pal, you say a lot more by the things you're not saying. Go play Farmville :roll: for a while and chill out!

Because I have a Fuck this all feeling i can't use the f word because of what reason?

People like you are the reason that the rest of us can't access the forums from public places (such as from libraries when we're out travelling). It filters everyone else out from accessing SP. That should be reason enough (at least if you actually cared about anyone else). I have already told you about this before, but you contine to do it just for the sake of being an ______ (fill in the blank with what ever word you want).

What is it going to take to get you to leave SP for good? Maybe we can all pitch in and get donations to make it happen.

NONE of this would have happened if we had php 17.43a, with its intelligent offense-sensing filters.

Let's get back to the important stuff. Is it possible to climb a big wall with those suction-cup things that I see in action movies? Can I rappel on 3mm cord? Why not? It's my right. OK then, where can I rent 4mm cord?
