Swearing. Censorship.

Post by Raoul Duke »

I think the big C-bomb needs to be put on the censored list.

Personally it doesn't offend me at all, but a gag of mine came undone when the word got through undetected. What I was aiming for was a post filled to the brim with nonsensical "[censored]" 's, largely to illustrate and satirise the ridiculousness of a certain member's notion that a certain comment was "flame-bait" (which of course I largely achieved)

...just that one word slipped past the radar and landed me with another yellow card. For which, incidentally, there is cause to object, - least of all because I had already been given one in error.


PS: make an acronym of this if you don't know which word I am talking about: Cant Understand Normal Thinking.

Ignorance is no excuse.

If you had done say posted this thread first or deleted/edited your post in question, I would probably take you more seriously.

However your post did show that needs to be addressed - quickly.

In case you didn't realise I'm not contesting the yellow -- I don't care at all, it means nothing.

I do find it inconsistent however, that I am punished for "pathetic language", which was accidental (in that I ignorantly assumed it would automatically be censored) whilst others actually do flame each other within that very thread -

"idiot get the [censored] out" et cetera.

Guess you didn't care about those?

Your first "yellow card" is not in question. Well, this is your "first" one I suppose.

You should have edtied your post, but you didnt. You left it and mentioned it a second time, again without editing it. [-X

Not on my friend [-X

As I have said, this is irrelevant to this thread. Stay on topic.

It is odd that it wasn't on the censored list seeing as it's one of the most offensive words in the English language

Your offence is directly related to this suggestion. [-X

I would like to few the filters and suggest new additions. Webmaster?

Simple errors can be made with simplicity. However what I find peculiar is how Raoul Duke got a warning from swearing, I mean don’t the Moderators tell you to stop but then if you persist the yellow card is then given.

Which Mod gave the yellow card?

Depends on the situation. In this case, the user has been around long enough to know what they were doing was not appropriate.
