Well, we do have those rules on the left when you make a post. I don't enforce them so strictly, as I think we're all adults here and we know when we go too far with our language. I also give everyone one swear word per day, but even if you post ten you won't get banished over it. Not by me. I'll discuss it with you, will ask you why there's the need to use those words when there are so many others that say the same thing without the loaded meaning. I'm sometimes glad we're not a birds forum...

What D-word is so bad?


I never ever read rules, even from my bank. I have better things to do with my time. Plus bank rules are too complicated for most to comprehend!

I don't see any word as bad. I could insult you very strongly using no swearwords at all. Or I could use the F swearword to indicate it's raining heavily, insulting nobody at all. It's the meaning that counts, not the word.

Birds forum? As in pet parrots or girls? I've been on parrot forums (see my photo), and they get upset all the time with me :-)

Damn. Or dang as yanks.... er.... merkins.... er.... Americans say.

Struggling with that too.

In our local Faceache group the things getting people banned, posts deleted etc. are far more nasty than anything I have seen here.

Damn is very very rude in the bible belt of the USA apparently. Hence they say darn.

I got a faceache (ROFL) post deleted just because I photoshopped the head of a monster onto my ex. What's so bad about that for Guinness sake? Oops, I mentioned alcohol now.

Should have gotten that. Clearly too much blood in my caffeine system.

I've never got why people bother with caffeine. There are plenty things with much more power, like my home brew. 24% anyone?

caffeine is a stimulant. alcohol is a depressant. opposite ends of the spectrum.

if you want real fun, mix them.

While this is a GPU subforum, Peter Hucker is the OP of this thread, and he's the one who goes off topic;
Though he doesn't take it to any other topics.

The Lounge might be a better place to talk about the weather and climate change, coronavirus, politics and what not.

As far as risers, I think we've pretty much exhausted the conversation; unless anything else needs to be added?

Alcohol is also a stimulant, I think you're getting confused with the medical term "depressant" which actually does exactly the opposite of making you feel depressed! What a doctor calls a depressant, actually relieves depression, and perks you up, just like caffeine. If you feel low or tired, coffee or alcohol will both get you going.

As for mixing them, no, I can think of many things more potent than caffeine to use instead, they tend to grow under bright UV lights in the attic. I've never once noticed a slight change in me whatsoever using caffeine. Either I'm immune to it or it's a con.

Why should a thread stay on topic? Language is a wonderful thing, it allows us to stray off and talk about other things. If nobody was interested, the thread would die off.

The Lounge might be a better place to talk about the weather and climate change, coronavirus, politics and what not.


If that was the topic at the start, then yes, but can you imagine moving a thread every time it changed topic? How absurd and completely unworkable.

I'm intending to use the term depressant in the medical sense. I know what it means. it depresses your nervous system. both terms (stimulant/depressant) were used correctly to describe the respective substances.

Well they all make people feel better. More energy, more concentration, less worries. How the medical "profession" can describe them as different I don't know. They may do something chemically different, but the end result is identical. If alcohol had a bad effect, nobody would buy it!
