I'm glad you asked this question, luckybob1985, and I agree with everything you said. I don't think the "a" word should be allowed on boards that are supposed to be for all- ages. And since kids do come on here, I wish the "d" and the "h" word weren't allowed, either. (Hey, I can wish.) Just because kids may hear those words in school and other places doesn't mean they have to see those words on these forums.
All I see teaches me to trust the Creator for all I do not see.
