Can someone please post an all-inclusive list of words or statements not morally acceptable on or around a softball field?

Of course, no one can as the meaning of many different words vary by region. The problem with these rules like this is that they are to subjective.

Who is to determine what is acceptable and what is not? I certainly don't need some idiot on a council setting guidelines for players. Besides, you think people don't swear just because someone bans a word?

Making love, ****ing, boffing, boinking, screwing, humping, etc. all have a similar meaning. For that matter with the exception of the single word censored, I have heard them all on broadcast TV, but why is that one particular word censored and others are not?

When there is a language God, I'll worry about being the language police.

The bat issue in softball is as much about liability, insurance and litigation as it is about competition, inflated egos and softball.
