No problem. On a lighter note, did you realize that today is International Polar Bear Day?

Yes, I saw that; I hope everybody kills their limit and tags out on polar bears, preferably in a way very painful for the bears.

The only thing that bothers me about polar bear cannibalization, is that at least one will be left over, a reeeeeeally fat one. (boo yahoo for no pics)

I have seen intentional misspelling to avoid filter recognition. I guess that's out too.

I would like to say something. For one, I have no problem following the rules. For two, I think the no swearing rule is reasonable.

HOWEVER....

Here's my issue with this. If I type an Arabic word, صديق, probably 90% of the forum population can't read it. For the record, that particular word means "friend." So, it is a perfectly acceptable word. For the record, I don't know Arabic so I don't know precisely how to pronounce it.

However, given that we have been at war with Arabs for about a decade, I would wage enough people deployed to the Middle East that they know some Arabic, hence why I said 90%.

However, let's take a less common language, from a country that we haven't been at war with. Farsi, for example. A lot of you may not even know what country speaks Farsi. Well, its Iran. If I were to write the word دوست, which is the Farsi word for friend, I'm willing to wager that 99.999999% of the forum population cannot read it, without looking it up.

Now, if I were to call Jaeger my دوست , and then in the same sentence say that Jaeger " شگر خورده ", well that wouldn't mean anything to probably anyone on this forum. Even if you looked it up, which I doubt you could, it would mean nothing. Because it is an idiomatic expression in Farsi which doesn't translate accurately to English. But I assure you, its very rude to a Farsi speaker.

I know this, because I know some Persians and they taught me a little.

What I'm getting at, is I could greet someone with سلام, which means "hello" in Farsi, yet few people would understand it. But it could be inferred that it is a swear word, SIMPLY because we don't know what it means.

That being said, the only possible way to know if someone is swearing in a foreign language is if you know that language. Otherwise, who knows if he's swearing or not?

So should I not be allowed to type anything in Farsi, and Jaeger can't type anything in German, because a lot of people don't know what it says and it could be construed as a swear word?

For the record, Jägermeister -

Может мы проклинаем в другом алфавите, например, по-русски?

I can't read the squiggly line Arabic but use the Latin letter Arabic and I know a few things I can speak it better than I can read it definitely

I'm upping my 90% guesstimate to about 94% now. You were one of the chief ones I figured might be able to read some of it.

lol don't get me wrong i can read a tiny bit of it like my name and "stay back 50 feet or you will be shot" ya know the key ones ,but when its written out using our alphabet I can sound it out and figure out the word meaning easier. All the extra letters they have in the squigglies screws me up you know like "pleghm sound"

Just for the record, I don't read Farsi, Arabic or Deutsch, but I can read "lay your soul to waste." Yo comprendo!
