vulgarity.jpgIn a communication to me, reader B. DelMonico writes, “I appreciate this forum, but could I ask you to please not post comments that use the term “Papal Bull S***”, or at least edit the term out. It is flat-out offensive and has no place in civil discourse.” Being offensive I do not consider grounds for refusing to post comments–and anyway, one never knows what will offend whom. Ditto with sacrilege. But the comment in question is vulgar, and I’ll request that those who wish to have their comments posted avoid vulgarity, which most of us recognize when, to paraphrase Justice Stewart, we see it.
