What's the difference. I had a post that was bounced due to the heading "AOL from Hell." Wonder why?
Was mot objectionable or vulgar. Just a common phrase:
"A problem from Hell." Is that OK?
Can I use Heaven? What about "Hell bent for leather?"
Hells Bells? Hell, I really do not really know any more.
Very common phrases and not objectionable to anyone.
I really don't care one way or the other what anyone says on the internet. Just don't call me late for lunch!

How to disable the profanity filter?
by 386sky / May 5, 2013 / 2:34 PM UTC

When you try to type "curly quotes" in the Downloads site (on posting a review), the website converts them to "straight quotes". What is this failure on the site? And you have also posted inappropriate comments in TruVoice...
