Shame you ain't ever going to have the pleasure of controlling someone like me and as much as it pains you inside, it in turn makes me laugh in your fking face.
Although I do now pity anyone who's unfortunately around you in the real world. Can't imagine what that must be like to live with.

When did "control" become a pejorative anyway? But then for someone such as yourself, who relishes and boasts about their lack of it, and lack of self-restraint, discipline, being a slave to base pleasures etc etc, I suppose it is.


Thin ground you're on there TS as that's beginning to sound like you're jealous because you don't know how to be anything other than controlling.

Well sorry... but I can't help you ;)

You've got me Sketti. I'm jealous of you. You're just so... er.... (*scrabbles to find a single interesting or worthwhile trait Sketti has*)... good at using GIFs!!

You're boring and stupid. No wonder you have to boast constantly about how much sex you have ( :roll: ), as you're certainly not good for anything else. Was that a way you found you could get some attention and people to pretend they liked you for a little while Sketti?

Poor, used, discarded Sketti.

Hang on... Sketti is having lots of sex?

:eeek:

That means increased chances of lots of little Skettis running around, being annoying...

:twitch:
Oh no... is it 3:36 again?

Well it targets phrases usually directed towards others. It can keep things somewhat civil all else being equal without moderators manually having to tidy shit up. (more work). That was the point of it, and it acts instantly which obviously results in less verbal abuse directed towards members when its being dished out.

It wont censor a number of individual fuck words etc. But some it will.

Im happy to have a debate/thread about it all, see what peoples opinions are.

What the fuuk are you talking about?
Don't swear on the forum.

I saw this notice in a pub 'No Swearing'.

WTF, I asked the pub manager which words were considered as swearing and which were not.

fuck
cunt
bastard
pissflap
shit
spunk
motherfucker
wanker
minge
piss
bollock
arsehole
twat

were the ones given.
Then other words were permissible in certain contexts such as

knob
jobby
clinker
jugs
dung
skids
tits
butt
rim
lob
toss
facial
doggy
horsemeat
etc...

Is there a list of filtered words available or are you saying that they are only filtered when preceded with a phrase such as 'you are a flowerpot' but flowerpot alone will not be filtered ?

Erm i've lost the point of my post, oh yeah that's it...

Please list the filtered words within their filtering context, and then outwith that context.

IE 'fuck' is not filtered but 'you fuck' is filtered ?

Thats what the intention was yep, to reduce member to member abuse without moderators having to do a bunch of moderating and trawl through posts. Its not perfect though. The c-word is filtered on its own for example because it can be used on its own to verbally abuse.

Another option that would make it easier for moderators is to remove the serial offenders and then remove the filtering. :wissl:

For the record im not necessarily for this filter, id prefer it wasnt there but that people could be sensible about things and not abuse fellow members because they dont agree with their position on a subject (or everything :hahano: ) .. so we are still able to let loose on occasion and express ourselves in the way we would like to.

Heck the filter has filtered things ive written a few times and i wasnt abusing anyone, i know it can be annoying. But i felt that something had to be done... as i said theres more than one way to deal with this issue tho.

Erm no, but do we want to see it all over the forum used towards other members?

Is it good for the forum when people find it on google and members are calling eachother all kinds of things?

Or if people visit here for the first time and they see it for themselves?

With so many words in the english language, cant people find another way to tell fellow members they dont agree with them and why, instead of dragging the tone of the whole place down? Unless of course that is their intention.

I dont see most forums and online communities tolerating the kind of behaviour ive seen here so i dont see why we should be any different, for one i feel that it is unnecessary to litter the forum with profanities.

Could the same filter be applied to racist remarks, as per the search result problem as stated by Frog in an earlier post.
It's not what web searchers want to see?

Id like to see freedom of expression as much as possible so the filter wont be expanded for the time being.

Infact some words were removed from it the other day, it was wound back slightly.

Like i said it is member to member abuse id like to see reduced.

Nov have you noticed how popular Chris Spivey's webpage appears to be? Indeed he uses words such as those that could/would be censored in other places, it seems not to effect his popularity, however his use of colourful language is aimed at MSM & TPTB.

Is that the problem, it's ok to swear but only at the AM's enemy, so it's not the actual word that counts but the target selected?

I think that most people that participate here do not want to be verbally abused with profanities by other members, and that is the feedback ive gotten and have been getting for quite a while now, not just on this forum.

So like I said it is on forum member to member abuse we wanted to reduce/curb. If you want to call david cameron a (whatever) for example i dont see an issue with it and i doubt he will be signing up here anytime soon as a member.

Well it was set to 'daisy' ... but i changed it to c**t so the intention was more apparent... the place began to look like a floriculturist forum.

I don't really see the point because we all know what c**t means so why bother hiding the middle bit, the abuse is still there.

and it's easy to get around thus, kunt, c.u.n.t.

So it's pointless.
