could you please quote webpages for those who have difficulty accessing

You're right; my bad. Sorry.

besides, the next-to-last is 'Do not use foul language; besides, some
people receive the lists via packet radio, where swearing is illegal.' -
where was the foul language?

Several words have been used in this thread (it happens in other threads also) that have traditionally been considered "foul language", at least in my Texan culture, although without a standard definition of "foul language" it's hard to claim with any absolute certainty that "this" word is foul and "that" word is not. Still, my momma would've whooped me good for using some of that language, and the FCC would have come down hard on any broadcaster using such language 10 or 15 years ago, although lately it seems to let almost anything on the airwaves. My general thought is that if most people would not say it in church or in front of a pastor/preacher/priest/rabbi/mom, it's foul language.
