I've made some changes based on the rules and their enforcement

Post by >THE Ben Reilly< on Mon Sep 19, 2016 4:06 pm

First topic message reminder :

I started this site and it is my right to grow it and prune it as I see fit. I have the last word on what the rules are and how they're interpreted.

So without further ado:

* Blackie is basemented for using the racial slur "slants" in reference to Japanese people

* The term "muzzie" or any variant of is no longer allowed, as it is also an offensive slur

* Tommy's blackface avatar has been deleted, and racist imagery of any sort will no longer be tolerated

P.S. -- I'm pretty much at the point where I feel like being pushed on any of this would be a lot of fun, so think about that before pushing me.

The offensive C word is  over ridden by a pretty flower name...which makes me giggle when I see all that venom go to waste.

So....whichever other words are deemed offensive (decide between yourselves) replace them with something nice. Wink

That way the posers who like certain words can use them to their hearts content.

Isn't it already overridden by "geranium"?

It is FTL...and it works.
If other words were over ridden like the ones outlined in the OP  by  flower names that might work as well.

There are ways around it but you have to be angry enough to bother. Not many words offend me.

Imagine a road rager who uses his horn in anger only for it to sound like a deflated whoopy cushion.
It would have the same effect.

I find it rather sad that a pretty flower will always be associated with calling someone a c un t

Me neither, but I don't make the rules.

I'm not sure why anyone wants to deliberately insult anyone anyway, but if that's how want to express themselves it says more about them than the person they are directing it at imo.

It's a horrible word, specially when directed at a female.... geranium is far nicer.
Thing is Major what one person finds offensive someone else doesn't....so if every word was banned from forums that someone finds unacceptable, we would be looking at empty spaces. Laughing

I really wish people wouldn't use it, and if memory serves correctly, we have taken action against users who use it before.
