    There was a thread on the old MI6 forums back in the day about an MI6 forums movie involving actual voting for who would play each member. I got Shia Labouf.
    Haha, somebody revive this.

    That would be fun. Unless some jack-you-know-what suggests an actress to play me, then this is a bad idea and we totally shouldn't do it. ;)

    Yeah i remember that...that was a fun thread,you should bring it back CR !!

    I thought about it, but at the same time this forum is so different compared to the old. It seemed like we had 20 super super active members on the last one. Maybe I am just not on here much but it seems like that atmosphere is kind of gone.

    I'd say we have at least 20 or more active members at the moment. By which I mean, those that post something every day. If we included those that post several times a week, it's even larger.

    I am not super active anymore so I wouldn't know! I am trying to be though.

    Sorry but there could be a 5 year old reading this.

    I'm a reformed character mate. Today I went and burned my blurays of Goodfellas, Pulp Fiction, The Thick Of It and SF - you want to try it. It's actually liberating.

    It's all about family values on a discussion forum about a government assassin who has casual sex with woman after woman.

    Mendes4Lyfe was one of the codename theorists in that famous thread? His Aidan Turner fandom erased his previous theories from my memory.

    Well that was stupid of you, what you do in your private life is up to you.
    It's only on the forum that you fail to follow some simple requests.
    As for the government assassin, who has casual sex with lots of woman. The thing that separates him from the likes some other action heroes or spies is that he also doesn't swear. Just like we ask you not to do. ;)

    Bond has sworn in every incarnation so, maybe not the best defense there. ;)

    Bond is not known for swearing on the whole though. You wouldn't associate it with the character.

    Well, of course not, but neither do any other spies. Is there a whole sub-genre of potty mouth spies that I've not experienced yet? ;)

    The point you're miss @0BradyM0Bondfanatic7 is that Bond doesn't swear (a lot) much like we ask members of this forum not too.
    Of course there will always be those that don't like to be told.

    I may be wrong but I think the likes of AJB007 has the same policy about vulgar, obscene etc language. But if anyone has real concerns about freedom of expression or whatever just drop me or Benny a message and I will see if I can come up with some less fruity adjectives for you to use ;) :)

    hah! Yea, good one. I don't mind being twee now and again.

    Apologies for being way off topic here but I'm part of a bourbon lovers discussion group where you have to be over 21 to participate, and their rules are far more rigid than ours, including (you guessed it) no swearing, as well as no intimidating other members or being disrespectful which will 'get you booted from the group'.

    If it's good enough for a bunch of hard drinking Kentuckians it's good enough for us ;)

    Didn't Fleming write in one of the Books ( possibly Moonraker ) that it's impossible to get through a day without some four letter Anglo saxan ;-)

    This is the passage to which you allude from YOLT:

    'And do not make Western‐style jokes while you are my pupil. We are engaged on a serious mission.'
    'Oh, all right, Tiger,' said Bond resignedly. 'But damn it all…'
    Tiger held up a hand. 'And that is another thing. No swearing, please. There are no swear‐words in the Japanese language and the usage of bad language does not exist.'
    'But good heavens, Tiger! No self‐respecting man could get through the day without his battery of four‐letter words to cope with the roughage of life and let off steam. If you're late for a vital appointment with your superiors, and you find that you've left all your papers at home, surely you say, well, Freddie Uncle Charlie Katie, if I may put it so as not to offend.'
    'No,' said Tiger. 'I would say "Shimata", which means "I have made a mistake".'
    'Nothing worse?'
    'There is nothing worse to say.'
    'Well, supposing it was your driver's fault that the papers had been forgotten. Wouldn't you curse him backwards and sideways?'
    'If I wanted to get myself a new driver, I might conceivably call him "bakyaro" which means a "bloody fool", or even "konchihikisho" which means "you animal". But these are deadly insults and he would be within his rights to strike me. He would certainly get out of the car and walk away.'
    'And those are the worst words in the Japanese language! What about your taboos? The Emperor, your ancestors, all these gods? Don't you ever wish them in hell, or worse?'
    'No. That would have no meaning.'
    'Well then, dirty words. Sex words?'
    'There are two ‐ "chimbo" which is masculine and "monks" which is feminine. These are nothing but coarse anatomical descriptions. They have no meaning as swearing words. There are no such things in our language.'
    'Well I'm… I mean, well I'm astonished. A violent people without a violent language! I must write a learned paper on this. No wonder you have nothing left but to commit suicide when you fail an exam, or cut your girl friend's head off when she annoys you.'
    Tiger laughed. 'We generally push them under trams or trains.'
    'Well, for my money, you'd do much better to say "You—",' Bond fired off the hackneyed string, 'and get it off your chest that way.'

    And if its good enough for Bond, Fleming and Stephen Fry it should be good enough for the us. Of the two options, some Kentucky drunks or three men who are brimming with style, class and wit, I know which I'd rather take after.

    You know what @WizardOfIce, you can keep pushing me just as much as you want to, but in the end? Ian Fleming didn't publish the F word in his books because he wasn't allowed to. Steven Fry didn't F and blind on QI, because he wasn't allowed to.

    What they did in the comfort of their own homes or amongst friends was their business. And the same goes for you and this place. And that's it.

    But, you make your own rules, just as you always do, so you go for it if you want to. And then we will see the outcome.

    Yes, I recall the f-words being blanked out in the Fleming Bond novels. I even wrote about that and other edits in an article from ten years ago.
