A swear word has been taken out. I guess it must have been a mod but it would have been nice to have been told that it had been done.

It's been taken out without telling me or leaving any notification that a change had been made.

Just need an official answer as to whether that sort of thing is acceptable in the hotukdeals community or not?

A warning for posting the daily update of hotukdeals from our sister site bitter wallet?

I don't think so!!

Sorry Benji... but yeah it is.

To be honest, and I know I'll feel the wrath of the mods/other uses here..

But I type posts as I'd speak them - swear words and all. Then leave it to the swear filter + mods to judge whats what.

BW is a different matter. We have a bit of class here.

Benjimoron, I've checked with all the other MODs who are currently online & none of us have edited anything on your MISC thread. Can you possibly give me some more information as to what has been edited please so we can follow it up, thanks.

About the sixth line has been edited, read it along with the version on bitter wallet and you'll see the difference.

Just wondered why it was removed? Would be good if we could get an answer as to whether it's acceptable in the hotukdeals community?

Cool, but seeing as it's the hotukdeals daily round up from our sister site then it's ok, right?

The info has been added to the thread in question, and as I said, reading about the sixth line comparing it to the original on bitter wallet will make it all clear.

So it's just the swear word then. For some reason the HUKD auto swear filter doesn't work in the main deal listing so has probably been edited by one of the MODs currently offline. I take it you're asking why bitterwallet doesn't have same swear filter - different question. I'll be back shortly ;-).

No, what I'm asking is whether it's ok to use that sort of language in the hotukdeals community?

If it is then my post needs to be put back with the swearing in place.

If it's not then my thread can remain with the swearing removed.

Do you really think there are no links on HUKD which lead to sites with swearing? Have you ever been to youtube?

I think some of those offended here are no more offended than trying to pick apart some hypocrisy. So if it's hypocritical to have a sister blog with swearing and not allow swearing on the main site then so be it. The rules here remain the same.

They why stick links to inapproapriate content all over HUKDs?

I don't give a **** if you swear here, there or anywhere else - but surely if you are strict here, you shouldn't aloud inappropriate material to be link so obviously from this site?

I'm not sure what the abusive comments, and - even by my standards - completely pointless swearing in postings on BW gives you?

It's akin to a group of school kids going round swearing PURELY to act "cool" or to insult.

but what is the swearing adding to your blog? Besides making it look amateurish and written by children? Like I said - I couldn't give a damn if you swear, nor am I offended by it - but it just seems a pointless exercise.

(I realise this is a slightly different argument to the topic)

Banned

I mean ignoring the pointless swearing in the posts themselves, there appears to be zero moderation of the comments, which have generated into a single user commenting on every single new post, and swearing purely to offend certain types. Pathetic? Possibly both ways - but why are you allowing this kind of language on a site linked to well respected community like this? It drags us all down.

(Letting the swear filter do the work here, the original is on BW)

There's a big difference between a link to youtube which may contain a swear word and actively promoting our sister site (part of the hotukdeals community) which contains loads of totally unneccesary swearing.


Let's be clear then shall we? Is it ok to post a link to a web-site which contains swearing on it? Not just the odd swear word written as a comment but where the writers have actively included lots of swear words in the main content?

i think the point trying to be made by most, is yes we do see the odd word in a thread, we do see the odd word through a link someone puts up, these are not obvious unless come across, bw is blatently obvious for all to see who use this site, i remeber some time ago someone posting a link to pornagraphic pics, link was removed and member banned, and that was in a thread, not obvious unless thread clicked on and read

Thanks.

Point I'm making is that if the hotukdeals community is supposed to be family friendly then we shouldn't have another site part of the same community that contains swearing to the extent it does.

Complete contradiction by Paul.

He says that we can't have swearing in the hotukdeals community, yet bitterwallet is part of the hotukdeals community.

I've said my bit above. The rules on HUKD regarding swearing remain. There was little swearing on Bitterwallet until everyone started trolling each other on the issue.

You know this is predictable right? Someone will push the limit here in protest. Someone will get banned.

If that's entertainment let's go for it.

Paul, let's be serious. This isn't for entertainment. I'm an adult and so are you.

I don't see why you want to disrupt our happy family site with a terrible site full of swearing?

Either take the links off or change bitterwallet to remove swearing. If you don't then you're effectively saying it's ok to put links to sites full of swearing on this site?

Yep, but the rules need to be clear about what we can link to. At the moment it appears that it's ok to link to sites full of swearing. It's also ok to actively promote such sites on this forum.
