First topic message reminder :

It's been brought to my attention that we've never banned insults that single out a specific gender, which was a massive oversight on my behalf. So from here on, nothing along the lines of "bitch" or worse.

Use your own judgment, of course. Insults aren't always insults among friends, right? And some are milder than others -- I don't see us banning "silly cow," for example.

Mods, please help me out on this one. Cool

Yes.

Also remember that if you come at me with a nasty attitude, I will boomerang it back at you, so you can see what it feels like.

Boomarang away, in the sure knowledge I wont drag up what's been said years down the line falsely claiming I felt tortured by the whole thing. lol!

Another rule, Syl?  People should be able to raise statements of someone delivered on another thread.  It's called keeping them intellectually honest.

Otherwise, we'll have Caligula Trump, who directs killers in one breath, and eulogizes the victims in the next.

Not a rule Quill....a suggestion.
Why is everyone suddenly banging on about rules?

Why would anyone object to someone objecting to being called a "s-lag"? Would any of the women here want to be called a "s-lag"?

The only time I see the word being used  is on forums, and usually by people with zero respect for themselves or for anyone else.

As far as I know the only two words on filter are geranium and the recently added classy lady.

I agree with Eddie, Gels and Rags ....(even if it does seem I am contradicting myself somewhat) I am not really in favour of banning words....but then again why should any woman be subjected to that level of abuse because some half wit cant keep his cool?

Ideal scenario would be that posters post in the same way they would speak to someone face to face.
Obviously that doesn't happen here,  probably because there is considerably less chance of ending up in A&E hid behind a computer.  Wink

There are others, some quite silly and parochial. For example, if I want to talk about Sandra Bland, I get Sassy Bland. If I try to speak to Dean, I get The Devil You Know. And of course, any mention of Trump, will get something like 'horseshit, banana face, racist asshole'...or some such lot.

Do like I do...use italics to fool the machine.

Yeah. I don't mind if Ben likes to play around. 'Cept when there is meaningful content in my words, and I won't be understood otherwise. But we all know about 'geranium'. Fewer of us know about 'The Devil You Know'. And 'Trump' changes, so it can be confusing.

It should be "The Devil, You Know" - with a comma.

How about you try something for me, Wolf.

You simply answer their posts without any insult, and see what happens. Answer them as though they are all just posters and not people you have chosen to dislike...and just see what happens.

Then we shall all see if all posters can be civil. Right?

Let’s all try it. Humour me.

Since none of us engage in that kind of thing, the moderating is fair. It's you who had two accounts banned.

It's really quite simple.?.I tend to look more at the context and intent of the word than its actual meaning....So for one of wolfies juvenile outbursts , which generally contain little or nothing relevant to the thread or post to which he is replying, CLEARLY, the intent is just to be a basty nastard and let loose a mindless uneducated and puerile ichor of abuse. The slurs he uses are indeed different when abusing Male members as opposed to female ones, I suspect because he ain't bright enough to find sufficient for the men.
Likewise quill, with his targeted and deliberately poisonous attacks on nicko, he is however somewhat more loquacious and educated than Wolfe, but no less of a thug in his own way

Unless I'm told to do otherwise I will continue to mod based on what I consider the intent, obviously informed by Ben's new requirement.
If, like Wolfe you lack the moral fiber to self moderate, I will can you like a handful of beans

Wolfie's categorisation of and attitude towards posters is really quite simple, Raggs: Unless you are a card-carrying supporter of the saintly Left (see his tedious catalogue of the virtuous, including himself, whenever he is bleating about posters being on some imaginary and fictitious mods' shit list) you are naturally a far Right, neo-con, Fascist, homophobe, racist (choose any adjective or even the whole lot) bastard who can get away with any transgression with impunity.

And it doesn't take more than a couple of tinnies of Foster's or a bad day at the bee hives to trigger him off into one of his own infantile racist and misogynistic rants.

Too true, that...

The day that I see HT,  Syl,  Ragga' or gelico basemented for their regular cliqueish, misandrist, racist and nationalist bullying gang attacks on here..

Will be the day that I believe that Newsfix finally is applying fair and even moderating standards.

I address the points that need addressing, and leave the gratuitous adjectives and adverbs on the cutting room floor.

@ Andy. How sweet of you to say what you said about me. Thanks. xx

It's NOT me who awarded you the greenie for it, tho. 
The smug mutual backslapping using greenies is a bit OTT sometimes. I wouldn't want to be guilty of something I find so nauseating when others do it.

I might have done that. I particularly enjoy Andy's limericks. We applaud at the end of a play; why not for a particularly good rhyme.

Ah, but editing in such a way as to represent the opinion of one poster as being the opinion of another is somewhat more advanced than leaving out "gratuitous" adjectives such as, er, "RW knuckle draggers".......

It was my post. I only wanted that part of your post that described the RW'ers. I didn't borrow your "opinion", but your adjectives. It was my prerogative.

May I suggest: Strunk and White, The Elements of Style (1918).

Perhaps you didn’t see this or perhaps you did and thought you’d ignore it but I’ll give it another go.

How about you try something for me, Wolf.

You simply answer their posts without any insult, and see what happens. Answer them as though they are all just posters and not people you have chosen to dislike...and just see what happens.

Then we shall all see if all posters can be civil. Right?

Let’s all try it. Humour me.

You seem to be aiming this at everyone now. We all know that it's Wolf who is abusive. If he wasn't, I would be civil to him.

I was saying it would have been wrong if it had been ME who had given him the green, as a reward for praising me. It would have been too self serving.

But it's ok that it was you (or anyone else) who gave it, as there's no vested interest there. 
You did nothing wrong.
Sorry if my post came out wrong, Quill. Laughing

You can give a green to someone who praises you. What’s wrong with that? Someone appreciates you, so just accept it and enjoy it.
