Filter?

Instead of all this drama about fag and faggot can't we just filter it to "guy i would like to blow?"

I think it's pathetic that we would need a filter for shit like this. How hard is it to not use the word?

When we talked about this when we restarted the board this was our same thoughts. People need to learn to control themselves. Is that word SO difficult to keep outta here?

No. The current rule cuts down on members that aren't worth keeping around because they can't follow simple rules.

Maturity and the lack of need to keep pushing the bullshit that is CLEARLY stated in the rules would end that. Maybe that should be tried?

If it's going to be a filter, how about just filtering it to show nothing at all. lol 

But, I agree, just don't use a word that's not allowed.  What are you people 5 years old and need a slap on the wrist a million times for the same offense?

It worked on the old boards and stopped most people from saying it, sine they knew it would fliter to "guy I'd like to BLOW"

So we should filter it so people don't have to exercise self control and obey the rules? I thought and hoped this place was a home or what have you for people with adult tendencies. My bad that people can't behave and follow the rule accordingly. And FYI there will be NO filter installed. People WILL be dog housed and banned for breaking the rules. It's the way it is.

You're just creating more headaches and work for yourself.

Take 30 seconds to put the filter into effect, or spend countless time reading through every post, editing said post, then DHing or banning the member.

Thats the way I see it.

Well that isn't how we see it. If people can't follow the rules we don't need/want them here.

That's silly, most people here have been here longer than you.
Why do you have such a shitty attitude towards everyone?

1. Who gives a shit how long some people have been here compared to Caryn? That doesn't change the fact that she has a better understanding of the rules than those people that have been here longer.

2. She's not the only one with that point of view. If you can't follow the rules, why is that the administration's problem? There's a reason laws exist in society. If everyone was left up to their own law, everything would be chaotic. If you break a law, you're punished. Thus, if you break a rule on AR, you're punished. It's pretty simple.

Why is it such a big deal that people don't say "fag" or "faggot" on this website? Please give me a real reason. I don't want to hear "Well, you can just put a filter in." I want an actual reason why that word can't stay off of this website.

I wouldn't say I have a shitty attitude towards every one here. I would say I am fed up with the asinine pushing of the staff here on rules. They are there for a reason. If ya don't like them maybe you should have bought the place. The rules are pretty much the same as they have always been, except we will not filter your deliberate breaking of the rules. This is not day care. Learn to live with in them.
As for being here longer than me...that is irrelevant, Jim, Onyx and I stepped up and bought the place. It wouldn't matter if I joined yesterday, because of us, the staff, you guys still have a place to come hang out.

Thank you, person I was talking to, for you answer.

I hear what you are saying about being fed up with bullshit.
The crack about your time here wasn't meant to be inflammatory, I guess your wording threw me off.

You were being an ass, kalgorn threw in.  Deal with it.  This forum draws replies from ALL of the staff.

Her time, regardless of you being thrown off, shouldn't have even been mentioned.

There will be no filters.  If people can't play by the rules, people will be punished.

If you didn't want responses from the public, then don't post on a public forum.

And, oddly enough, I never did get my reason.
