How is anyone to know how you meant it?

Here's a quote of my exact "post" with * around the bang head. It is pretty obvious what it was about.

I found the your comment funny.

This whole snark=ban thing makes DS pretty choppy waters for someone like me.
Yet again... Hilarious!

It wasn't an admin that filtered anything out. The tech team tried to filter out the individual letters from the spaced out F bomb and it backfired.

This is what I've decided is the compelling factor, too. Which is ok. I'm loving it, and can maintain my "post-nothing-personal" mantra on this site now that I can't retract it later.

Shoot, if you can get a strike for saying "stupid", they surely would discredit for being a mod of a competing board!

It usually is. I have no problem with the headbanging. But, if I can't use it (why didn't it disappear with the smiley overhaul?) then you shouldn't be able to either. I think that's the point. If mods find smilies offensive, please, get rid of them. I don't want to get a strike for using a smiley that the board provided.

Edited due to typo
Eta: I see no issues with snark or this comment but it seems very hypocritical in the thread about how snark isn't helpful.

I think we have reached the point where no one can post anymore.

I suppose the * outbreak could have been taken as a hot topic. The bang head is an example. Not a forbidden smiley.
