    Your ability to consistently miss the point is unparalleled. It isn't about porn, and it isn't about personal attacks. It's about thread and post deletion. It isn't about blackmail either. It is simply that many people joined here for the chance to speak their mind, and if they find themselves in dispute with another member, at least be assured that they don't have to worry about a capricious mod stepping in on one side or the other. I see nothing wrong with someone simply stating their preferences as what kind of forum they hope this is or becomes.

    I couldn't disagree more if by "most" you mean members here. If by "most" you mean members of other forums I would say sure, some members of other forums perhaps, but I do not see anyone here "not wanting gV to survive".

    I agree GradyE, no one should. I think Mars agrees as well IF I understand correctly . Everyone should speak their mind w/o fear of deletion or moderation . I think Mars wants it to be done in the proper forum node. It would be nice if members could disagree without falling into a bloody battle cage but I'm pretty sure that is not going to happen.

    You would be correct , I'd like to believe that since so many members at gV seem to have old baggage or history with other forums and forum members would leave that at the door when they enter THAT forums door tho, its really hard to tell for me.

    I have some catching up to do in other threads, but wanted to jump back in here first.

    Grady, it IS about porn and personal attacks as well, at least for me. It's about all of it.
    It's about freedom. (FREEEDOOOOOOOOOM!)

    I came to gV expecting most things were accepted in most places. The admin/gov stuff was obviously, to me, off limits for being mean or grossly off-topic, etc..
    I would rather see off-topic posts moved to another thread, but there is merit in the fact it's stated it won't be tolerated. As in, you knew it wasn't allowed there so you risked it being deleted.
    The point being, poster beware... but it would be cool if those posts were moved instead of deleted. Deletion makes my skin crawl.

    I don't get all the sensitive feelings all of a sudden either. I know most of this crowd as people who can give and take lumps really well.
    Now some of those people are changing that tune and I'm not sure why and it makes me a little sad.

    I like the idea of a forum where it's largely a saloon, a bar, a rough crowd. The type of place where anything can happen at any time.
    Where people can realize that words on a forum are just words on a forum.
    That's not to say I condone stabbing at each other with intentionally harmful words, things meant to really sting us and make someone actually feel shitty.
    What I do condone is more of a continuous "roast" of everyone, by everyone.

    But from what I understand, this thread may have become a moot point at the moment?

    I think I'll go read up on some other threads...

    Also... Porn Fights!! Lain, maybe that's the answer to your Flash game? ;)
    Either that or a new thread if it hasn't been started already. :D

    To be honest, I have no problem either with the idea of posting whatever material in the appropriate thread but I do find it somewhat difficult (given the way I browse the forum) to be aware of which type of thread I happen to be in.

    OH YEAH! I almost forgot!

    I'm NOT trying to "blackmail" Mars by saying I would probably leave if the forum got too "vanilla" for me.
    I'm simply stating a fact.

    I enjoy forums where crazy shit can happen.
    If gV turns into a place where crazy shit is moderated out of existence, I probably wouldn't like it anymore.
    If I don't like a place, I would most likely not go there often or at all.

    Whos freedom? That is the question Kick ..... its been stated a few times by a few members that they do not enjoy the prom, rude comments, trolling, or to quote you *made to feel shitty*, some do not want to go to a discussion thread to open it and have porn and vile personal attacks on anyone.

    So whos freedom do we protect......the cowboys in the saloon or the members who do not .

    I'd put it in the NSFW work section.
    Mostly because those fights would end up not being all that serious by default and more of a fun game than anything else.

    The people who want more restrictions and controls aren't asking for freedom, they are asking for the opposite of freedom (for all).
    That doesn't mean those points aren't valid. If that's what a person wants, then that's what they want.

    It breaks down to:
    Would you rather see most of the board be G rated? (Less freedom)
    Or would you rather see most of the board R rated? (More freedom)
    (And that's a global "you", not as in "you, colleen".)

    That would be an assumption counter to "Porn Fights!" I know, because I invented it!

    But let's say you are right, at first. But then it gets heated and nasty. Real fighting, mixed with porn. Could the thread be moved to Area 17?

    No. No it couldn't!

    QFT!

    I think that's where the main problem really is.
    It's less to do with people ignoring the rules and more to do with not easily knowing where they are.

    If the title of the thread included the section it's in, or if it could be shown with a different method, that could work as well.
    Like in the browser title bar, if it said "governance section" somewhere, that would work as well as color codes or whatever.

    Good points, Love.

    It seems to me that NSFW is more inclusive of real fighting than Area 17 is of porn, so I stand by the NSFW placement.
    Because, real fighting could result in real shouting at the screen... and that, my friends, is NOT safe for wrok. ;)

    Yes ! I know ...I do too and have become a bit paranoid lately so I am trying to always check where I am at . That said I will add I do not check because I have fear of being moved or deleted but ....flamed and harassed by other members.
