I concur.

NSFW stuff should't be in recent posts, including the EB thread.

Fred spams inappropriate threads with those videos. I've had to delete several from my own threads where they made no sense at all there.

The irony here is that I myself used to complain about NSFW posts on this board YEARS ago when I used to browse the forum from work. This is nothing new. The difference is it was posted anywhere and everywhere without any warning whatsoever. Boner Joe was notorious for posting that on really stupid threads just to be a huge speed bump and the more you complained about it, the more disgusting the images got. My only complaint then was the lack of warning in thread titles or links. I was rebutted then along with a number of people who agreed with me. The answer? It's the fucking Free Talk Live forums, dude! *shrug*

You guys act like this is something new.

Fuckin' noobs. hehe

You honestly don't see a problem and a misunderstanding from someone who might click on the "new posts" menu on the front page of FTL and only finding porn?
It's not funny or necessary.  It makes you look bad Dale. People who don't know about your talents and intelligence would write you off as a porn spamming douchebag if they only saw your mile long listings of dirty pitchers.
I don't really care what impression people get of BJ.

Do you remember when they tried to make this place nicer, and the TOS changed? It wasn't that long ago. It seems like you should know about that if you are a mod.

IIRC, you said you're trolling with the gay porn.

I just woke up and was a mod one day. Not that long ago. I don't know how it happened. I think I may have gotten bitten by a werewolf.

I haven't even read the TOS. I'm sure they're pretty common sense. After all, I've apparently managed not to violate them too badly for about 7 or so years now or I probably wouldn't be a mod. I can't recall using my special mod powers even once--no, I didn't change anyone's name. With great power comes great responsibility and all that stuph.

Simple stuph is not complicated, however much people try to make it so.

Then, there is a thread asking how to increase traffic .......  Seriously?  Have you read some of the responses some new people get here?

Those were responses to you when you were acting a lot like a troll. You are not "new people". You presume that anyone gives a shit if trolls stick around. If you're not a troll, that's great. Maybe you just need to learn a little netiquette. I'm just saying that you aren't making a very good point with this example.

You guys seem to be arguing that we should please people so that they'll stick around and play. Here's the thing. Quality over quantity. See, I don't give a shit if stuffy prudes who want me to walk on egg shells to sanitize their browsing experience leave. I really don't. I also don't care if trolls leave.

I may have joked that my gay porn is "kinda trolling" but it's, at best, mildly trollish (likely to trigger an emotional reaction) to stuffy dickwads. It's not really trolling at all. First of all, it's isolated to appropriate threads where you know what you'll see if you go there. Trolls aren't interested in making a valid point or having a meaningful discussion. I think my thread made some people think and it still is doing that as this thread goes to show. This forum has been saturated with porn pandering to straight white males for years but there was no reaction until I posted some hot men and then "OMG! OMG! OMG!"

See, if you guys get your way, you'll cultivate an environment that will attract more social conservatives who like to toss around the libertarian buzz-word. I don't want that. I want people who don't flinch at a nekkid butt, for crying out loud, that is tactfully placed in an appropriate thread that you don't have to read if you don't want to. See that's the cool thing about liberty is doing what you want as long as you don't infringe on the liberty of others. Social conservatives only give lip service to the idea of liberty. They don't live it and I have no intention of bending over backwards to attract them or to keep them here. And if the exact opposite happens, even better.

A couple of clearly-marked threads with some edgy content is actually a good litmus test, IMHO.

I'm full of shit and it's obvious.
First, I'm not a social conservative. That is some funny shit.

Next, stop whining about this being about trying to change you or whatever bs you are on.  Do you understand what I'm getting at here? Cause some people seem to: I don't click on your threads. I don't click on any threads. I click "Recent Posts" and I am forced to look at page after page of hardcore gay porn to use this feature. I created an account, made a suggestion, and when that failed, attempted to ignore you to solve the problem. That doesn't work, because trolls can't be ignored if they are modtrolls.

As much as you want this to be about your posts containing gay porn it isn't. The MAJORITY of NSFW that appears in recent posts just happens to be "gay" porn. If you were spamming straight porn it'd be just as bothersome. It's XXX man. I'm not here to look at porn. If I was though, having a private NSFW thread would still allow me to do so, unlike this pornless void you try to portray my idea leading to.

You try to make yourself the victim because I'm OBVIOUSLY clicking on your threads and should know damn well what I'm getting into. But I'm not, and every time you try to use this fallacy I wonder if you are being dishonest, or simply can't grasp something so simple.

No ones forcing you to use the feature that specifically DOESN'T FILTER ANYTHING. Why are you choosing to use that? I told you how to filter all but posts you haven't read. One thing I left out, which I thought was obvious, but just in case--click the little "new" button and it will jump you to the oldest message in the thread you haven't read yet. That will allow you to self-filter the threads you don't want to see. You know, like the ones that have "NSFW" or "butts" or "breasts" in the title.

Your suggestion: Whole lotta work for me to do to because YOU are fuckin up the recent posts thing with porn spam. Doesn't solve the problem of new users getting an eyefull if they stumble across the message board with the recent posts. Doesn't do anything unless I am logged in which seems to randomly happen when I return to check stuff meaning, again: whole lotta work for me to look at a few new messages. Means I gotta log in if I am doing this at work/school which I'd rather not.

My suggestion: Not much work to implement; probably would have been done and over with in the time you've put into bitching about my suggestion. Fixes all the bs I mentioned. Let's EVERYONE avoid freaky shit if they choose to use recent posts. Doesn't hamper your posting in any way; let's you fly your freak flag all you want. Provides other incentives such as: Letting selected posters be more open about topics they choose, allows for more discussion in areas like bud growing, guns, black market shit. Gives users a choice if they want to see your nasty ass posts (since even registered users can't ignore you.)


You asked WHY I use that? Why wouldn't anyone? It's a great fucking feature.
Recent posts = don't have to log in from work/school comp.
Recent posts = doesn't need to jump through bs hoops; way less fucking clicking to see what's new.
Recent posts = lets you cut out avatars w/o having to log in
Recent posts = ultimate lazy message board reader.   
Recent posts = awesome except for NSFW.

Your claim that I am not forced to use that link is horseshit. I don't have to use it, but your actions force me to avoid using it. If roles were reversed. If I was a mod, and you were a new user. And I was posting shit you didn't care to see constantly. And that destroyed your easiest, most enjoyable way of using the site. If it made you have to put in a extra effort to do something that was so easy before, how would you react?

I guess I would whine endlessly about it and try to change the whole culture of the BBS for years back even though it was clear I was never going to get my way.

I guess I'd say don't click every link in sight?

Re-read my posts. Rather than click through a half dozen sections and then skim through dozens of threads to see if there is new material (and while doing that also making sure to avoid content that might offend), I make use of the "Recent Posts" link on the bottom left side of the main page. It lets anyone see the  top trending topics and then quickly and easily see the last ten pages worth of recent posts without having to go sloggin through the site. Recent posts is an awesome way to browse all the new content posted, unless you don't like wading through NSFW to use it. My suggestion would allow the NSFW posting to continue, while keeping it out of a valuable link on the site. It wouldn't be a big deal to implement for the mods/admins either (It's been done on a number of message board's I've frequented in the past).



From the number of people that don't seem to get it, I assume I'm the only person that makes use of the Recent Posts link?

You right dog, you right. You said Recent Posts and I heard Recent Topics, my bad. Still Recent Topics is essentially what you're looking for, I mean it lists the threads that are popular, of course you'll have to put in the huge of effort of clicking through each topic that piques your interests in order to find out why someone would bother to post in it. The other option is for you to turn off images in your browser so you don't have to worry about any offensive images coming up.
