I'm happy to keep things the way they are.

 

we can lock "off topic" viewing from public eyes, but that can significantly reduce advertisement revenue.

All good - am open to warnings when it starts going too far though.

 

As I said - have had zero reports, concerns or complaints 

 

Was after community thoughts on the way the "flavour" was heading.

 

Will still stamp out any harassment etc, but wanted to make sure it's a direction the regulars haven't got an issue with.

who gives a chit it’s just the inter webs. 

 this is a good point

but if new members or guests see our petty infighting it doesn't look so good

Yeah we just got deleted fluff

its happening all over again again

This one is an important topic (to me) - am keeping it on topic instead of letting it go off topic.

just Rab is struggling with the forum controls in his (semi-drunken?) state. He'll clean this thread up, as necessary :)

Trying to - ;)

I think close the public access for the off topic stuff.

 

gotta entice all the f1ckers that moved to facebook back here.

 

that being said, we should loosen the swear filter up a little...

When asked for opinions then posts deleted when they’re given seems pointless and like a dictatorship especially when there was no malicious intent just pointing out an opinion. 

Either way... zero farms given but it’s a bit of a shame if that’s the way it’s going to be nowadays. Considering this thread promoted free posting as long as no offence was taken.

this isn't REALLY about the swear filter, but I reckon get rid of it completely, except for the funny ones... but that's just my opinion and it hasn't been well received by the "powers that be" in the past.

Remember that we are still a car forum first and foremost and also open to access by pretty much anyone.

as you all know too well,  I mostly use this forum in the "off topic" thread as a social media interaction and I love the opportunity to just say whatever is on my mind

I love the freedom and of course, I love the site as a whole

I don't need to state it, but much info for us ford freaks

as far as censorship is concerned (in reality, that's what this thread is about)  as hard as it may seem, discretion is needed by the mods (Keith & Rab) as to what is acceptable and what should be curtailed 

If the " off topic" thread  needs to be hidden from public view, then make it so

That's the point of the query/topic

 

General consensus seems to be - let us talk crap, as long as the forum isn't dragged down.

That's above my pay grade, but am trying to work out what standards you guys think we should work towards

Fuck yeah. Too much pointless swearing by cunts isn't good though - change the "u"'s to "@"'s and everyone is happy

No one thinks they are funny anymore.

 

Holden, HSV stuff has had its day - daewoo doesn't even exist.

 

Changing pigs to cops was funny, until I was describing the pig on the spit I was cooking - FFS, it looked like I was serving police over a charcoal pit rofl

Only posts I hid were ones that didn't add to the question I was asking, or followed on from another that added nothing - take it up with me
