    I came here looking for a forum that discusses SL and the issues around SL. I am sure there are thousands of porn forums where people can post porn pics and cuss at each other all the want -- but that wouldn't be an SL forum.

    From the sounds of some of these recent discussions, it sounds as though some people are itching to compete against each other to be the most vile, obscene, and vicious poster in all the internet. Perhaps they destroyed a few non-SL sites and had to, incidentally, join an SL -related site although they have no interest at all in SL itself. I really dont think thats a direction the webmaster(s) would want to go in, nor would they want to take on the legal risks involved.

    Because a forum's currency is daily post count and membership numbers. People threatening to lower the membership numbers IF the forum owner puts rules in place they don't like is blackmail.

    I have no reason to insult Spanish speakers just because you happen to be one of them.

    The only content deleted is porn and attacks. The Constitution of the United States will not be deleted.
    It's not if people don't make posts threatening to quit if the don't get what they want.
    deleting porn and personal attacks is an across-the-board policy. You are suggesting that the policy will be used to delete content of only certain people.
    Adding "and if it does not become what I want it to be I will quit" is blackmail.

    I was hoping someone would pick it up. I'll forward you the paperwork.

    This whole forum (given how it came to be) is the definition of "old baggage. :p

    Maybe we'll all be "blackmailed" or "bullied" into staying.

    I wonder if a thread such as a governance thread/MCP thread could be set to have a popup that would say something along the lines of "This is an MCP thread, are you SURE your post is appropriate for the topic of the thread?" every time you hit the "post reply" button.

    I like the idea of the color coding.

    Red light district to indicate NSFW
    Yellow for Area 17 derail attacks allowed

    I understand that , now.....I did NOT when I joined. Other new members may not know either or know and not care or know not care and over it. What will entice them to register, what will enhance their experience here if they stay and are attacked, porned, spammed, bullied and so on and so on. Some people move past things and let things go. Some don't. But somewhere over time someone has to let it be let go.

    That is not the case Ajax. The great majority of members here do have an interest in SL and in fact are inworld frequently. It may seem at the moment that there is quite a bit of discussion/squabbling going on however most of that has to do with discussion about how this forum is to work which is only to say you have joined at a time when SL discussions are on the back burner a bit while we try and sort out some forum governance issues. :)

    You wouldn't be insulting me, you can barely explain yourself in your mother's language... I would not expect you to be proficient enough in mine to sound insulting.

    While I understand your frustration, you may have simply been misled. I'm not sure that at *any* point this forum was conceived or considered as an SL-centric forum. Mostly, it has drawn it's numbers from SL primarily, but there are people involved here who rarely, if ever, log into SL. Such as it is.

    SLU is more focused on SL, as are the official SL forums.

    Lastly, this is a phase - it hasn't always been like this, and it won't always be either. Hang around.

    God you are SUCH a drama queen. Everyone who leaves is a ragequitter. People discussing under what terms they will or will not stay become blackmailers. pfft
