Driving. I moved to Tampa four months ago and it's full of urban sprawl and terrible traffic and drivers. Having previously lived only in the middle of nowhere, an eight mile commute taking 35 minutes is still inconceivable. I have a new long-term goal of once again living in BFE.

Not to be a bossy betty, but are we still following the language rules for the forum/linkshell or no?

Bob's Food Emporium sounds great, but Jarreth had it right.

I have had the opposite experience with this. I moved from Kansas City to the BFE version of New York state, and I was driven crazy by the lack of roads. You would think traffic would be lighter going from a city of two million to 40,000 people, but the lack of multiple roads made it worse imo. I've found driving to be a pleasurable again since moving back. Here I have three major Interstates and a bajillion state highways to provide a myriad of alternate routes to deal with traffic. Living in upstate NY, if the one highway was backed up you were late. Preference probably comes from how/where you grew up, but I love living back where I feel like I can get anywhere at anytime. Different strokes for different folks and all that.

I wasn't sure, that's why I used asterisks instead of spelling it out.

I've always kind of thought using asterisks was pretty much the same thing as using the actual word. I've never advocated their use as a way to avoid breaking the rules.

Having said that, I don't know that we've ever established publically that linkshell rules in game carry over to the forum. We did ask someone to remove a sig that contained an offensive word once, but other than that, I don't recall language ever a) being an issue or b) ever being enforced here.

Just saying.

I agree. Kind of makes me sorry I asked what BFE meant now. Didn't want to get people in trouble. Crying or Very sad

Once it was decided that "pissed in your Cheerios" was acceptable for a forum section title, I assumed moderate swearing was ok. I've dropped one or two recently in some section and nothing was said to me.

Still, having Squitt after you is worse than being marked for death by a tribe of alektorophobic ninjas.
