I mean the full list.

A link to where the full comprehensive list of rules are set out and explained...

Look in site news Tommy - the rules have been there for ages. There isn't a 'list of words' - you're not all five years old, you can work out the proper decorum for posting I'm sure.

There does appear to be a list of words which are against the rules though - some new ones have appeared only today. The admin appear to be more concerned with vague slurs against unknown people than specific slurs against members.

Rags do you report these slurs?

What would be the point of that? The mods would only say it's "free speech", and in any case, most of them come from admin - like Ben calling Tommy "pervy" the other day, for example. Most of the others come from Veya.

No one has ever said "Pervy" isn't permitted

So why would you suggest that I report such slurs? I told you it would be a waste of time, and you just confirmed it. You said there isn't a list of words, but there clearly is.

Okay here's what I suggest. One of you make a thread and ask for a list of words. That is perfectly acceptable and you're within your rights to ask.

Why don't you make a thread with a list of words?

It's just that it seems a tad unfair that "muzzie" is considered a worse thing than calling another member "pervy" and implying that they're a paedophile.

Any abuse posted towards me seems to be allowed...


I have been told that if I am abused then I can respond in kind...


Although I'm pretty sure that if it was me doing the abuse first... then I would be banned...

My own personal opinion on burkas is that I don't see any need for them and rather dislike the look of them.  Not sure if I can summon enough passion to call for a ban, though.


I've just noticed that you have a far higher reputation score than I do Jules lol.
I cannot help it if people decide to award me a green.
I have never awarded anyone a green ...... or a red for that matter.

And btw I have never hit the report button, on here.
I never criticise the mods or owner!
I just post and have fun and I try not to be too irritating - well not deliberately anyway.

ban all face coverings including balaclavas, scarves and masks, certainly any shop keeper should have the right to see who comes into their establishment.

Even daesh have banned the burkha in raqqa in their security buildings as too many are using them to assassinate officials.

as to police officers being allowed to wear a burkha, what a ridiculous idea.

is that you on the warrant card or a binbag?
