Thread: Let's cut to the chase

  1. #1

    Let's cut to the chase

    After reading fury's locked thread & then seeing his banned status for daring to talk about his locked thread & seeing Professur get edited, literally within seconds, it may be a good time to ask the all-important questions. I saw nothing that broke the AUP.

    What exactly are the limits of an HWC off topic forum? If posting pacifiers is too much or hinting at (or openly typing) porn titles is against the rules & anything "deemed offensive, objectionable, or in poor taste' covers just about anything, anytime, anywhere...wouldn't it be made simpler to just give a list of allowed topics?

    Let me start the list
    1)Weather
    2)Weather
    3)Weather

    OTC has a political room in which all but the most excessive & abusive is allowed (something about freedom of speech). I'm not suggesting that here (yet) but a little leeway must be allowed in off topic.

    Just offering my never to be humble opinion & trying to get my bearings.

    Is fury really banned (or did he just change his title?)

    Well if you carefully read the AUP and the Sticky at the top of the Forum and use some common sense you will be fine.

    You will not use profanity in our forums, and will neither post with language or content that is obscene, sexually oriented, or sexually suggestive nor link to sites that contain such content.

    Is what it says. According to the AUV link you have posted.

    What I don't understand is why people don't get the idea that the image we want here is a clean cut image about as if you were talking to ten year olds at a scout meeting or something similar.

    If you have to talk about sexuality, porn or cuss every other word then you must be short in some department whether mentally or physically and need to prove your a man or something. If thats the case then take your mental baggage somewhere else and quit trying to push the envelope or kill some terrorists if you have to prove something somewhere else cause your not going to get any satisfaction here.

    Drop the crap and start acting like gentlemen, I guarantee you will get more respect.

    If you can't tell I'm starting to get po'ed at the bs, I come here for some clean safe discussion not to see dirt or get aggravated.

    You ok Al?

    That was my whole point of this topic; does everyone and I DO MEAN MGMT remember how OT1 did fare?

    I know and respect some good OT sites; that's why I don't bring them up here.

    I just feel this came out of left field; there was no mention of it when all of the sudden there it was...

    Call me skeptical but I've seen it before; hopefully with more mods, it will be better (which was my original complaint before).

    Huge,

    I think Al just said how he and some of the rest of us feel.

    We (the Mods) fought really hard for the members to get this OT forum back so when someone acts like that we do get upset.
