BillM, please don't use profanity in an open forum. It's a violation of forum guidelines.

Mods, can we get the subject changed?

I agree with the Capn on the language, but I would say the new ST4 will be a great choice. It will run cooler (it only needs a 5v power supply), and it is a "true" plug n play (no more unhooking wires to move it). The only downside is a weaker FM modulator, but it sounds like you had a wired relay to start with, so you should be o.k.

I agree. Just because he stole it doesn't make him dumb. 'Mean dirty rotten scum sucking fuck' seems more appropriate

Why? He's fucking pissed off and has a right to express his anger in any form or fashion he wishes!

What, do you expect him to go and say "Oh gee golly gosh darn, some mean old man went and stole my receiver. I'm just so perturbed!"...I think not! If some asshole went and stole my receiver I'd be raising hell as well! Don't be such a prude, let him get it out of his system because if he bottles up his emotions for too long he just might go apeshit and take it out on an innocent bystandard...and it very well could end up being one of us! Do you want that on your conscious? Huh? Well, do you?!

Yes.

Anyways, I agree, I'd be pissed as well. The ST4 looks like a perfect replacement, and just mark the stolen one as an excuse to upgrade, right?

It sux to get your personal space violated. Hope karma pays them back.

Not to go OT, but where does it say no profanity in the guidelines? Other than the FAQ, I've been unable to find any forum rules.

From the guidelines "sticky" at the top of the page...

No Profanity

While we usually do not censor for content, we do strive to create a positive experience for people of all ages and backgrounds. Foul language may be removed or edited if necessary.


Personally I always took this to mean if the profanity was aimed at someone, like if I told you to go f*ck off. (btw, I self edited f*ck)

c'mon guys, the orginating poster may have had a good reason to use profanity, but we do have guidelines to follow, thus the modified word. Subsequent posters that used profanity just to make a point about censorship or lack thereof detracts from the thread. Let's stick to the subject.

I don't think those would work well for his Sirius subscription. Don't think he wants to downgrade either...

Yes and no.

I agree he's angry and I understand why. He certainly picked the right place to express his anger. But, as the Forum Guidelines clearly state, this is a 'family friendly forum' and profanity is not allowed.

The mods aren't fanatical about enforcing that, and I have no problem with that. But, like all the other guidelines specifically concerned with topic titles, I believe it does need to be enforced. I make no judgments of BillM's character and I haven't and won't call for any punitive actions of BillM until and unless his violations for forum guidelines become flagrant and undeniably willful.

As for me being a prude... you really need to get to know me before you make that assumption. I suspect you'd change your mind.

With regards to your repression scenario... maybe you should lay off the coffee and tequila drinks and Dirty Harry movie weekends.

To everyone who's reading this thread: I apologize for distracting from the OP. I had no idea my post would cause such an uproar. Those of you who offered sympathy and/or commented on the ST4 have my admiration. I hope BillM got what he needed.

I am sorry to hear your radio got stolen. Have you called SIRIUS to report it? I have heard XM will give you a very nice discount on hardware if you have a receiver stolen. I am not sure if SIRIUS does this though.
