Posted:And I know you won't be defensive because of the definition of this forum.

1. Censored words: anyone who isn't of age here is going to be exposed to MUCH more questionable material than a swear word in print, just because of the lifestyle. Seems unncessisary.

2. This search for the topic before you post it. Can you disable it in some of the forums? It's completely useless in the forums that I post in (advanced poi moves, tech discussion and this forum - for various obvious reasons)

I'm just saying. Thanks grin

Posted:I can see the merit in being able to post whatever you want, but on the other hand that opens up the potential for this place to slide downhill real fast to where the anticipated response to any post would be something like "U r gay, I hope you censored die!!!11!!!1 blah blah blah" or "OMG girl show your tits I'd like to blah blah blah to you!!!!@!!111!!!" Not that I'd expect this from our regular posters who seem to have more class than that. But I think the general vibe we have here most of the time and the blocked swearing both do a lot to keep away immature little pricks who'd use this forum as their own personal stomping grounds. Look at the posts by that Raymond Phule guy a few years back. That dumbass couldn't conjugate a sentence without swearing and all it did was highlight the fact the guy was a complete moron who really had nothing good to say. I may joke about epic flame wars, but would rather not see this site become something that people only go to for bitching or flaming purposes. For the most part, everyone on this site seems pretty chill and would like to keep it that way.

To me this is having assumptions and generalisations about the culture. Have some confidence in your people!

We can let this thread die if you really want. I was having fun.

Posted:I personally am not taking anything very seriously in this thread. It was fun for a while, but it's kind of started to lean towards flaming, so maybe it should die.

Brennash, I would also like to keep people chill. I like it that way grin

Posted:Originally Posted By: LyeOriginally Posted By: Mother_Natures_SonI think you'll note that one of the times isn't this one... so the relevance of your claim is spurious at best.

I've read this about 10 times trying to figure out what the point is but I couldn't get it. A time it isn't inappropriate isn't this one..(?) but this is a resource for a culture, as forums are and they're all filled with whatever the people are into.


What I was referring to was the simple fact that while generalisations may be useful in some situations its not useful in a public forum aimed at being suitable for anyone of any cultural background/age/shoe size.


This thread should die. If it were in any other forum I'd discard it as a troll thread. I won't be posting in here again.

Posted:lye: for someone trying to update the board, your grip on Internet slang is found somewhat lacking. http://www.urbandictionary.com/iphone/#search/define_json?term=ghey


Try not to fail so hard next time

Thread succesfully derailed. Good job team. Let's find another rubbish one to get silly with.
