i would like to know if there is a policy (and i wasnt able to find any) on asking questions which are "good" - in the sense of the quality of the content and the quality of the question but contain vulgar words like this post:

Trouble connecting to MySQL database using PHP

im not exactly saying it's "good" otherwise, but it's just an example of a question however it contains vulgarities in it. do we keep it or do we close it?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Vulgarities should be edited out of questions and answers. That's why we give so many people that privilege.

In general posts with good content should always be kept around on the site.

    @netcoder In that case I'd hide the link in some test, which I'm about to do. But the context is necessary. Bad words are a necessary evil in cases like that I suppose. – jjnguy Mar 2 '12 at 3:53

    @netcoder Check out my edit. I think that's appropriate. – jjnguy Mar 2 '12 at 3:55
  • Yes, yes indeed. – netcoder Mar 2 '12 at 3:56
  • But what about posts that are about bad words? ;) – user159834 Mar 2 '12 at 4:52
  • @Madmartigan Ha, that's pretty interesting. In that context the word isn't even being used in a vulgar way. – jjnguy Mar 2 '12 at 4:54
