Wow-- I feel sympathetic shame for Mobileread

In this post:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...&postcount=181

I used the utterly correct, clinical word "penis" in a non-offensive way-- only to have a moderator step in and edit to say "you know what."

That is just sad. Shameful. Beyond shameful-- it defies belief. Is this site really so-- let's not mince words here-- so pathetic that the proper medical terms for anatomy have to be bowdlerized?

Moderators tend to be pretty forgiving on these forums, Ardeegee (with not a little help from a responsible membership). This edit surprises me. I must admit that I don't see the point. I wonder if it might be down to over-sensitive softwarfe. I remember one forum I used to visit where the word 'bad' posted as asterisks because the software included the innocent word in its obscenity-filter for some odd reason. Nothing could be done and members had to remember it use the bastardised spelling 'b-ad'. Cheers. Neil

Truly pathetic.
Then again, it is life, isn't it?

That was a bit over the top in my opinion. You didn't even use those other words; short-form-of-Richard or another-word-for-rooster....

Sorry. I thought I was properly applying MR's policy. Obviously I screwed up.

P.S. I also thought I sent you a pm about ti, but now I can't find it in my my outbox. Obviously I screwed up there too.

No problem, I'm not holding a grudge. (FWIW, No PM arrived.)

I think it is a classical example of difference between mobileread and some other places. Moderator apologizes? Well done Nate the great.
