ETT Assembly Thoughts

Toward the end of tonight's ETT Community Assembly, Dave expressed strong opposition to including policies against using offensive words during webcasts.  I use the word 'offensive' after considering several others - obscenity, indecent, vulgar, curses, swear words   None of those seem to fit.  'Foul language' might  be appropriate, especialy in this case, but of course I'm  talking about Carlin's seven words and the like  (Thanks George for many laughs and for adding a lot to the conversation)

. In the context of ETT Policies and Worldbridgyness,

  • Sensitivity to offending others vs. Freedom of Expression &Genuinenss of Conversation
  • Dave's Legislation Concerns?
  • Standards vs Rules?


Well, that's what I'm thinking as I head upstairs.  Got a full day on the road ahead, so will ponder these and other matters as a wander my way through the New England countryside.
