No idea what has happened, woke this morning to see some folks have been "suspended" (edited from the word "banned", haven't got time to wade thru all the threads to see, fair chance they've been mod-edited anyway.
Not sure fully why, but i have looked at some of the comments, anti Black Gerbil and Saint and his spamming.
Can't honestly say anyone on here really uses and plays by the rules fully, folks will not use a full swear word say, typing the 1st letter and using the asterisk (*) themselves to filter, thus in effect, avoiding the swear filter. I saw the use of the word bar steward yesterday, that was allowed, why?
I agree there are favourites on here, said many things on here, some folks agree with, some not, but what is more offensive, as has been said, posting deliberate threads to cause folks to get wound up, or to swear, post jokes that might be a bit near the knuckle?
I remember constantly being told that this is a family friendly forum, yet, Sid James would have been proud of some of the innuendo and smut on here, and in the main that is allowed.
I know i am gonna be told 2 things here; report post which you know i do and secondly that the forum has guidelines and not rules and the "rules" are subjective and not easy to implement, and i have i always said back, make the rules visible, transparent and remove any element of subjectiveness
I'll tell you what. Each time i see a post, i believe smutty, troll worthy, avoiding swear filter, i'll report it, and would ask other's to do the same, but and this is the crux, if they're not acting on, what is the point?
Before i leave to work, i will say, well done to some of the mods of late, been spot on when i have reported stuff, within an hour or so, summat has been done, can't argue with that
