1. Not true, you did so on this board last week. 

I used the F word over an over? 

2.  Yes, we all get that you are google stalking a child, and making fun.  Everyone gets that.

Do not put words in my mouth, I never said that. 

3.  That's kinda what I thought when you used curse words and when you mock and lol at others.

It is cute how you have no clue. smh

.  You realize that when someone asks you not to use a nickname when addressing her, and you continue to do so, that it's rude, right?

She asked me not to use the initials of her poster name? When was this?

She asked everyone. Yesterday. In the same threat where your friend asked not to be called Jambles, and I asked not to be called Bord.

No, she didn't, That request was to me and I don't even debate the woman.  Besides, the pka continues to use an abbreviation to address her so if there's some new standard you'd like changed perhaps you'd like to pass it on to those you know so well first.  While you're at it ask that they refrain from using real life names on the board too, I believe molly has kindly asked that a couple of times, It's rude to not comply with a really kind request bordwithyou.

Well, if superior parenting means trying to be a good role model, responsibility and accountability then I'm all in. I cringe every time I see a post with a signature line as ugly as one of the posters here, Maybe the teenager created it b/c she doesn't know any better.

"Good role model" means different things to different people. I am pleased that my child possesses an extensive and rich vocabulary in several languages, and that she knows when and where to use certain parts of that vocabulary in different cultures. There are situations to which "bad" language is entirely fitting. I am equally pleased that, thanks to my teaching, dd has excellent command of spelling and grammar.

Case in point, about  bad language being entirely appropriate sometimes. This is a Greek poster protesting against people who poison animals (like the neighbor's dog). It uses a very vulgar word for those kinds of people, and rightfully so, IMO.
