    Will turn out as the worst Games in history and the whole thing will likely be gone in 25 years or so.

    Too bad b/c the NHL could have really used the Olympics to promote the shit out of the U.S./Canada players with the loss of Ovechkin/Malkin/Taresenko, etc.....

    Just like you’re allowed to post whatever you like (as you say), he’s allowed to use any version of “fuck” to bring emphasis to his posts.

    Yes. Fucking exactly, actually. Just as everyone has the right to ignore you, you have the right to ignore them, including the language in their posts.
    But this forum does not prohibit profanity, so you're up shit creek if you think you're going to ask members not to curse while responding to you.

    Do you understand?

    That is severe punishment for the Russians.

    What is there to understand? You clearly don't care what people think of your posts as shown here. Maybe you should follow your own advice.

    You come to a forum full of hockey fans and you're trying to get people to not say the word fuck? Thats ambitious.
