Yeah, maybe you are right there. I didn't see that.


Obviously 'UP NORTH', 'foxy lady land', 'At Work', and even 'Oxford' are perfectly okay.

But what about advertising, 'Ban the bomb' or 'fox hunting rules'

well i couldnt think of a better one

does it matter as long as it's not offensive?

Well do you find fox hunting offensive?


One man's meat is another man's poison. This is a forum for promoting hotukdeals.

i find it a little savage maybe but not something i dwell over and worry about. I'm not an animal type person and but i wouildn't like to see one mindlessly killed, in the same respect i'm sure many people are appalled by it.

Truly I chose fox hunting as one of the first knowingly controversial things that came to my head. The point was to demonstrate that surely to put FOX HUNTING RULES or BAN FOX HUNTING NOW has no place in the location field of anyone's profile.

I find the comments left in someone's profile more offensive than the whole fox-hunting debate , but at the same time fully understand others would not. My point is that it should not be used at all for one to be able to put across a point of view.

It is, but TBH if you take away peoples freedom to express themselves by adding anything they want to the 'location' field some other way of subverting the system will crop up in its place. Obviously if its offensive it should be reported, otherwise I don't see that it matters.

Sorry I don't follow your drift. I certainly was not referring anything to yourself, and in fact thanked you for suggesting that the thread may have been better placed in feedback.

Yes. Location is where your from not 'Im on the moon with *random username*'

Yes I fully agree. Well it remains to be seen if what I consider to be offensive is considered so by HUKD. I've reported it twice so far, but perhaps they are busy.

I could understand if the content was offensive in a religious, sexual or homophobic way, a witty comment left in the location field wouldn't be enough to get my goat i'm afraid, there are more important things going on around me.

Then I think we sing from the same song sheet.

Since signatures are not allowed, I see "Location" as an acceptable place to put whatever you wish.

As with anything(Location, comments, avvy's), if you see anything offensive, report it. the mods are cracking down this year, and about time.



brb...Troll slayin'

People can put what they want..If it was really bad I am sure the mods would sort it.

Some may find mine offensive...in the same way I wonder why you bothered to even fill yours in.

I dont mean that critcically but 'UK' - hardly says / means anything

To be honest I only just filled it in to make sure it was the correct field. I've removed now.

Sorry I don't follow you. The content I am referring to is 'offensive in a religious, sexual or homophobic way' to me

I have purposely chosen to hide the content as I know full well it will start a heated debate that has no place on HUKD. Fox hunting was chosen as an example only.


Mind you with the way this thread is going I would have been better just to have posted the offending profile.

:? Ermmm...are you sure you are not LOM in disguise?? :? Seems the kind of thing he would bang on about... Hmmm...

Seriously - if there are offensive ones about - then report them - if the Mods agree with you it will get sorted. Same could be said for Avi's. Personal opinion.

ok i am starting to understand you now, maybe if you had written your original post a little clearer it wouldn't have attracted negative attention. It initially sounded like you weren't happy with the location field being used for anything but "location" so it made you sound petty.

Can't believe this thread now has 34 replies. Mind-boggling.

Anyone who cares to re-read the 1st 12 posts of this thread should be able to see where I am coming from. I only made 3 of those posts, but I can see how I could have made it clearer.

>>> OP doesn't mind witty comments in location field as long as not offensive

I think that if you find anything offensive on here, you're perfectly entitled to report it to the mods and then see whether they do anything about it. Doesn't matter whether it's in the location or not.
I see that you have clarified that you don't think it should just be actual physical location, so I agree with you that offensive stuff shouldn't be on here at all. Just to reiterate with the 'one man's meat is another man's poison' point - yes, it is - hence report and see how it goes.
TBH - I think that locations are quite useful in gaining an impression of the person. I for instance, am a lady ( not ladeeee!) but because of my username people thought originally that I was male. Does it matter? - no but it can save some embarrassment.

agreed i did think you were male when you reported us for mucking about in "that" thread lol:p

cant even remember what it was but it was late.....:thinking:http://media.bigoo.ws/content/smile/party/party_7.gif

Since theres no signatures here lots of people use their location as a sort of sig, no big deal really is it?

Okay HUKD have removed the offending text so I am happy, and it also seems that others have been amused with this thread today too; so it's all good.
