The Censorship Project

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby Rkiivs » Wed Mar 16, 2005 8:45 pm

I'm pretty happy to be a part of this because the community, for the most part, does a good job of censoring itself (plus, I think the venting threads really help). For me, I say let it lie as it's not warranted and really only increases the cuteness factor here.

C'mon we're men! Not duckies and bunnies.

Didn't you get banned for flaming, of all things, the "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year" thread?

I don't think that it was a question of language as much as generally being offensive.

And from past experiences I will guarentee you that censorship like the word replacement method is simply a waste of time and effort (in this case it is Menyak's) on public forums. Community peer pressure and an occasional dose of moderation is really the best defense.

But we can do that, too. :-? I see what you're saying but I also like it when someone will spew curses all over the board and they get replaced with other things. :-)
