    From a moderator's point of view, that problem is you. You're in a no win situation from the beginning.

    You gotta ask yourself what caused the swearing. Some people can make a priest curse.

    So you're okay with a Moderator getting profane with a member asking a rules question?

    A little lesson of History which I found amusing.


    It all begins in January 1686, when Louis XIV suddenly falls ill



    He seems to have stung himself by sitting on a feather cushions that lined his coach triggering an abscess to the anus, which should have been immediately incised to prevent the injury to be infected. But the king's doctors, terrified at the idea of laying their hands on the foundation of the monarchy, opted for gentle medicines, such as ointments. These methods gave no result.

    All this lasted nearly 4 months and the royal pains did not stop!

    Suddenly, around May 15, the surgeons, green with fear, suspected the existence of a fistula. This led to a general panic. Finally, the first surgeon Felix de Tassy (called simply FELIX) decides to incise and "invents" a small special knife, a real goldsmith's piece whose blade was covered with a silver cape.

    But it took another 5 months to make this little gem ...

    The operation took place on November 17 - without anesthesia! It will take another 2 incisions (the wound having difficulty to close to heal) so that finally Christmas 1686, we can declare that the king was definitely out of business ... and put an end to rumors that, abroad, were propagated saying that Louis XIV was in agony.

    From the happy outcome of the known intervention, prayers were said in the kingdom and the ladies of Saint Cyr (creation of Madame de Maintenon who’d become a morganatic spouse) decided to compose a hymn to celebrate the healing of the king.

    The superior, Madame de Brinon (niece of Mme de Maintenon) then wrote some rather harmless verses that she gave to music to Jean-Baptiste Lully:

    Grand Dieu sauve le roi !

    Longs jours à notre roi !

    Vive le roi . A lui victoire,

    Bonheur et gloire !

    Qu'il ait un règne heureux

    Et l'appui des cieux !

    The young ladies of Saint Cyr took the habit of singing this little hymn of circumstance every time the king came to visit their school.

    Thus one day in 1714, the composer Georg Friedrich Haendel, passing through Versailles, heard this hymn which he found so beautiful that he immediately noted the words and the music. After which he went to London, where he asked a clergyman named Carrey to translate the little verse of Madame de Brinon.

    The brave priest did so on the spot and wrote these words which would go around the world:

    God save our gracious King,

    Long life our noble King,

    God save the King!

    Send him victorious

    Happy and glorious

    Long to reign over us,

    God save the King !

    Haendel thanked him and immediately went to the court where he offered the king - as his work - the canticle of the young ladies of Saint Cyr.

    Very flattered, George 1st congratulated the composer and declared that, from now on, the "God save the King" would be performed during the official ceremonies.

    And this is how this hymn, which seems profoundly British to us, was born of collaboration:

    - a Frenchwoman (Mme de Brinon),

    - an Italian (Jean-Baptiste Lully-ou Lulli-) naturalized French,

    - an Englishman (Carrey),

    - a German (Georg Friedrich Händel -or Handel-) naturalized British, and ...

    of a hole of the Frenchman, that of his Majesty Louis XIV.

    A European anthem, in fact!

    If Louis XIV had not inadvertently put a feather in the "behind", what would be the British anthem today? ...

    Can you now listen to "God save the Queen" without thinking of this little feather? ...

    You're doing it again. This attitude was your downfall, not the link or being a newbie. What is said in PMs isn't for later broadcast.

    I voted early, wanted to avoid the crowds. Didn't avoid the crowds.
