    Default Banned from Tom's Hardware for using the S word

    Really? You can't say "shit" in the forums?

    If they're so sensitive about cursing, why don't they turn on filtering????

    Nope. They just ban you instead.

    You should send a message to a moderator just saying "Don't you fucking know who I am, asshole?!"

    These days require diplomacy, a thing General Patton never did come to terms with.

    I was thinking of just saying, "Well, that was shitty".

    They probably were just looking for a reason to ban you. Because you just know to much and that makes the mods look like silly noobs.

    I should have slapped a sarcasm mark on my statement. I was just making a joke because of the number of times people these days use that phrase because of their popularity within a certain group on a certain platform. Treating it like universal celebrity status.

    I still don't understand why you waste your time in Tom's forums. Last I heard it was not part of your job description. For the last 5 years now I personally try to stay as far away from customer support as I can

    Word filtering is basically worthless for stuff like that. People will just write sh!t instead. Then you filter that and they write 5h1t. All it would do is create problems by blocking things unintentionally.

    I see a few recent posts from JonnyGuru over on Tom'sHardware so the ban can't have been for too long.
