dam right idiotic
I think the term is “downright”, not “dam right”.
So in technicality, there are rules against this, but they are not enforced.
I think they are more or less enforced. If a mod sees someone use “the F-word”, it is deleted. Milder terms that any sane person would expect children to be exposed to are usually left undeleted. Except in the cases of very sheltered families, kids are usually inquisitive enough to be learning and seeing naughty words and sexual stuff in school and other places long before they see it here. I don’t really see any practical reason to prevent them from figuring that stuff out. Besides, a lot of kids are for some reason self-censoring so they will avoid anything overtly bad. I remember being that way.December 25, 2007 at 12:08 am #356261

[quote="Aled"]I actually agree with Tim.
I though you where 12?
More like awesome. Stop being an annoying brit by using a loser-ish number of adjectives to sound legitimate. Get your point across, like good yanks would
Unfeasible? Definitely not. Have you ever ran a phpbb forum? Probably not. Pompous? more like suitable. I don’t know how it’s both right and idiotic at the same time. A problem that doesn’t exist? Son do you get your eyes checked every once in a while? I wouldn’t be making my proposal if the problem didn’t exist. Too many useless threads on this forum, including “HOLY ASS THREE DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS!” thread and then the next day there would be a “HOLY ASS TWO DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS” thread.
Looks like you’d be packing your bags then. Tim the child catcher wants you out.
I didn’t say that I’d like to disallow people under 15 on the site. I said I would disallow people under 13.
And people, don’t give me that “but Tim, they’ll lie about their age!” nonsense. No they won’t, you morons. Kids upon arrival won’t know about the age limit if there were one. They’ll come onto the forum with the perception “HEEHOOOO I AM 12 AND I HAVE NO PUBIC HAIR TIME TO GO TO THE FORUMS!!!!”, and they’ll have no idea about our age limit. It’s as simple as that. and then somehow we’ll make it that they won’t go back and change their age.December 25, 2007 at 12:32 am #356265
however it is true that the majority of the people here under 15 or so are extremely sheltered homeschoolers with no lives, so saying something “Yippee Kay Yay Motherf—er!!!!!!!LOL!” would automatically be censored by their James Dobson Focus on the Family approved internet censor equipped with The Magic Monkey Internet Browser for Kids 2.0 .December 25, 2007 at 4:37 am #356316

So now your exophobic as well as prejudice to children? Were there to many big words in my post for you? Neutral
No. Using a redundant number of adjectives does not help your cause, bucko. Please read some american literature, like Vonnegut. Such authors don’t abuse the english language with an annoying number of descriptions and adjectives.
Looks like you havn’t.
Yes I have, I ran two a few years ago where I actually got more members than your insignificant forum did. It doesn’t take much to do a bit of php coding with a lot of great coders in hand. Have you heard of something called forum modding?December 27, 2007 at 10:10 am #356829
