quote:Originally posted by CoastercameronPG-13 rule no longer applies? What is our limit here? Is the H word allowed? [}:)]
quote:Originally posted by mikehawkenballsAll this effort put into something so idiotic.Kiddie rules for adults.
quote:Originally posted by CoastercameronSo, are words that are OK in a PG-13 movie still ok here, or is it no profanity at all? I'm still confused. [^]
quote:Originally posted by SkywheelriderTo me, it is sad that folks cannot be mature enough in the first place to avoid foul language here, thus making a "filter" necessary. What a shame that folks even want to use that kind of lazy language. And lazy is what it is....those folks are too lazy to think of a word that is not offensive to others. And besides that, why waste time typing it in? Does it make those folks feel important? Does it make those folks feel good? There's more than enough of that language on the lot and out in public, why should we come here and read it, too? And what makes it even more ridiculous are the one's that come up with alternate spellings that make the words look different but pronounce the same, talk about wasting your time. We all choose to come here, of our own accord, and if any one of us does not like the rulesor want to play by the rules, it's simple....LEAVE. [xx(]

quote:Originally posted by mikehawkenballsGimmie a break.Show me ONE fair in the ENTIRE WORLD that has dropped a show over the help swearing.You call just about any show and ask the owner how many spots he's lost because of his help, and you'll find out.I can think of shows and spots, but I can't post it here. It's against the TOS. Besides, it doesn't have to be a fair. It can be a church festival, or anything close. That's my point. Just because it hasn't happened to you, don't you think for a New York minute that it hasn't happened at all (or won't happen in the future). While I'm at it, don't think for a minute that I am just some person who has no clue what I am talking about either. You know very little about me, but you have a REAL tendancy to talk to me like I'm some 10 year old punk, and you are very wrong. I've got 16+ years in this industry, and I don't deserve that.I have tried very hard not to insult you or be rude to you, but you continue on none-the-less. Why?
quote:Originally posted by mikehawkenballsContinue on what exactly?Disagreeing with you?Show me what you are talking about so I can understand.Just because you have the "power" or whatever to boot people or delete something that YOU don't like,it does NOT make you right.You create half of these problems with your sometimes over zealous deleting and/or hatchet jobs on threads.It happens all the time.This is usually where you will come in with either the "hey if you don't like it,then you can split" or "we don't get paid for being mods"Why would I have to leave because I don't like something here? Should I be some type of robotic automaton that just let something I don't agree with pass? I never really understood that one.And the amount you make or don't make doing this shouldn't be a barometer of the quality of the job you are doing.
quote:Originally posted by mikehawkenballsThe big friction I have with you,the other mods or even Matt is always because I speak my mind,and I don't kiss ANYBODYS keister.I say what's on my mind. And it just burns you up.
quote:Originally posted by mikehawkenballsYou claim carnivals have lost spots because of help,and I asked you which ones.Why exactly would it be against the TOS to post them here?If it is true and not rumor then it really shouldn't be a problem.Then again,you could have shot me a PM telling me what shows and what spots they have lost because of the help swearing.
quote:Originally posted by mikehawkenballsThis is a discussion about the inane "bad words filter".You think it is necessary,and I don't.That's called difference of opinion.You starting this thread is a great example of something that didn't even need to be brought up in the first place.Did everyone have to be warned or something that the filter was off?Many times it has been brought up that there is over a thousand members here and how tough it is to keep it in control,but how many of that 1000+ are regular posters? And of those people,how many actually are offended by someone using a profanity?Of course there has to be someone to make sure no one posts some skeevy pictures or whatever,but the occasional four letter word isn't going to kill ANYBODY.Never has,never will.
