something I hadn't pondered on, but thanx for sharing deb8z:thumbsup:


Because i saw a username saying dick and i didn't think it would be allowed,but now i see it is !

Some words are omitted as they have been abused a lot in the past in the forums.

It is because i'm surprised one is allowed a user name such as dickslash.

Somehow i doubt thats his name.

If you call someone a dick that is offensive = infraction

If you call someone Dick with that being their name it's fine

I find dickslash offensive/inappropriate as a username but admin don't.

I saw that name the other day and was quite shocked it was allowed, a lot of posts too. So it's not just me that knows that is a slang term for something else! Ok guess we know now!

how about .....turdburglar?

seen him doin the rounds, maybe a little more offensive than dickslash lol

Maybe you should throw the dick issue out to the general membership, and we'll mass debate it together?
#27
I wouldn't bother too much about dick as you get rid of one on here and there will be plenty to replace him.:whistling:

The thread was to point out inconsistencies,but alas that has escaped some people "sighs"

For example ,would you be happy for a 12 year old to call someone dickslash? because i know i wouldn't.
#34
come on debs dick is hardly offensive.... its like pre-swearing.....

what else you gonna call it anyway? lol ***** just doesnt cut it

dickslash would be the least of my concerns when youve got a child on the verge of being a teenager



edit: p e n i s isnt allowed......no choice dick it has to be lmao
#35
Why are people missing the point,i'll say it again inconsistencies until recently one couldn't even type crap without it being filtered out and yet one can type dick no problem.

Words that aren't starred out are not necessarily allowed on HotUKDeals, and can still earn you a warning, infraction or suspension. Many words in the filter (such as the one beginning with 'p' which you mention) are there because they were being used abusively or inappropriately quite a lot, and adding them to the filter is a way of preventing their use.

In most cases it's the context that a word is used in. For example, if I did something stupid and said "ah, I'm such an idiot" then that'd be fine, but if I called you an "idiot" then it could be considered offensive and unacceptable behaviour towards another member.

We expect all users to show some decency and respect towards others on the site, and expect them to use common sense too. If you do see a post, image, username or anything else that you believe is unacceptable then PLEASE REPORT IT! We find reports very useful and act upon every single one where it's necessary.

duckie I have a silly question for you...

If I called someone a - I might get an infraction right.

If I called a mod the same word, would it be worse or equal?

Not looking for a fight or anything - genuinely wondered if you take that into account.

Most of us do have fairly thick skins. :)

I think that it would usually be treated equally. It does depend upon the gravity of the situation, as people who decide to hurl obscenities at moderators usually put a lot of effort into it. The usual problem is that we infract or warn a user for something (not necessarily bad language) and then they come back to us with a load of abuse. In that case they'd normally receive an additional infraction upon the one that they've just received. Two infractions would lead to a suspension, so people swearing at moderators after receiving an infraction are looking at a short suspension...
