General / Re: What does "expressions of direct abuse" mean ?
« on: September 13, 2014, 01:47:28 PM »
My assumption is that you are referring to points D and F from the BBS TOS:

"D. Chronic expressions of direct abuse toward another user will not be tolerated. Users are encouraged to debate, argue, and even insult, but repeated harassment will not be tolerated. The determination of the word “Chronic” shall be left to the discretion of the moderators.

*Snip*

F. Chronic expressions of direct abuse toward a collective ethnic group of people will not be tolerated. If you collectivize a group of people by their genotype and make directly negative comments about said group you are treading thin ice.  The determination of the words “Ethnic group” and “Chronic” shall be left to the discretion of the moderators."

The answer to your question is this: Don't be a giant douche to other people on the board. If you do it, mods may eventually get involved. "shall be left to the discretion of the moderators." is as clear for you as it's gonna get.

Having said that the tolerance level of the mods and super fucking high. Some users a while back went after some crazy screaming troll user for weeks before anyone did anything about it. What was done was that the crazy screaming troll user was banned and the other users were told to knock off baiting the crazy.

Generally, if you start advocating racist bullshit or harassing another user, (The phrase "shall be left to the discretion of the moderators." should be kept in mind at all times.)  someone will eventually take notice and say something. Probably a few times. Then they'll probably temp ban you. If you keep acting like an asshole, they'll ban you harder.

Also, none of the mods (Unless they're bored or interested) are likely to have a debate about definitions of terms and picking apart the TOS word by word like a first year law student. I'm certainly not gonna and I wrote the current version of the TOS.

In the immortal words of Will Smith - "Don't start nuthin', won't be nuthin'."

I hope you mean if they do it in front of you. Doing kinky things in front of people who don't care to see it sounds like a very specific and not very common fetish. You might be hanging out with kinky people and not even know it because, like most people, they do their sexy time in private.

Expose me to it. Yes. I have friends who do whatever in their private time. But if some character shows up to a house party with some other character on a leash they probably won't get invited back.

For instance:


This sort of thing is not acceptable in our home.

Well said. Do you think my view on not really wanting to see it is reasonable? I don't want to see somebody slapping their spouse around. Concentual or not.

I probably wouldn't hang out with people who do that. I wouldn't say I have the right not to have to see it.

If I ran a bidness I would probably tell spanky people who came there to knock that shit off, unless it was a BDSM club or some shit.

"Listen, you slap each other around and people here in libertopia might misunderstand what's going on and fuck you up for not being NAPpy, and you can't really blame them. And if some white knight blows another hole through my ceiling I'm gonna make you pay for it, or gank the repair costs out of your wallet after someone plugs you."

I would generally avoid exposing children to the Dom/Sub thing.

Not because it's morally wrong, but because it's fetishizing the initiation of force, which would really fuck up a kid's perspective if someone's trying to raise them without violence.

"Say Billy, you know how we don't hurt one another and that's real important? I'd like you to meet mummy and daddy's friends Spikytitsling Whipsalot and Nutcracker McTakesthepeg, they beat on each other for fun and then fuck."

Again, not making rules for human behavior here, just thinking about who I'd hang with if I had kids around.

"Mummy and daddy are all about the NAP but hang out with people who beat on each other for fun." Is a far more complicated topic to have to explain than the 'rubbing peepees together' conversation.

The freemasons are on probation? Awe, you're not so hardass of a moderator after all.

Nonono, I had the Freemasons put *him* on *their* double secret probation.

Yeah I've gotten several emails from someone I banned. The crazy yeller. They were already banned so I chucked 'em into the spam button dimension and put them on double secret probation with the Freemasons.

I also ordered a fleet of chemtrail planes for his neighborhood, and a few reptilians to keep an eye on his place.

If it keeps going on I'll contact "The Jews" and have him put down*.






*They'll tell him he's a schmuck and ain't no mensch.

Just happened a second ago. Might have to do it again.

Hard to decide, because it may have been a semi joke report.
