I'm not sure if it's OK, but I have a poem with the word 'damn' in it. It is generally considered a mild slang word, but I thought I better check. So, can I post it in Open Poetry? (I'm frantically trying to think of a substitute if I can't!!)

It's ok. I don't know if you're serious or being facetious! Besides a poem about the Hoover Dam just wouldn't be the same (Hoover Darn?).

Thanks very much. I wasn't being facetious, I was genuinely confused and just making sure. Now I am free to release my wonderous work upon the world! (Giggle)
