Heheh, yeah, Anglo American pisstakery is always a good laugh. We're such good allies it's all fun & games.

My favourite is when they attempt to pronounce "Hairy Parder" and "Noader Daim"! Haha! lol

As long as you're not dropping f bombs all over, all the time, it's fine.  Let's just say some people could not control themselves.

Yes, it is.  But there is no reason to be obscene while discussing horror films.  Comporting oneself well is considered to be a good thing.

edit- Nice fix, Lon.

Re: ALL MEMBERS PLEASE READ (regarding minor members on the boards)

with all due respect, you guys are kinda sucking all the potential fun out of this forum. you should just let everyone go wild. after all, this is a horror forum and not a Disney forum.. how can we discuss the obscene without being obscene ourselves?

maybe you guys should consider adding an 18+ verification to the member sign up page?

Re: ALL MEMBERS PLEASE READ (regarding minor members on the boards)

Take up the age verification thing with Meh (website owner) at-
scoops@horror-movies.ca

It you want to go hog wild right now, check out bloody-disgusting.com.  They more or less let anything go on their forums.

Re: ALL MEMBERS PLEASE READ (regarding minor members on the boards)

yeah i would but the layout of this forum is a lot nicer... thanks though.

Re: ALL MEMBERS PLEASE READ (regarding minor members on the boards)

Just don't go dropping f-bombs all over.  We're not saying you can't curse, but "I had some great chicken for dinner" is preferable to "I just ate the most fucking awesome shitastic chicken in my whole fucking life." 
Though the Drunk Thread is fairly hands off from the mods as long as you don't insult anyone.

Re: ALL MEMBERS PLEASE READ (regarding minor members on the boards)

I was gonna go there but I'm not hmm
Morning Az big_smile

Re: ALL MEMBERS PLEASE READ (regarding minor members on the boards)

Re: ALL MEMBERS PLEASE READ (regarding minor members on the boards)

Gotta deal with the kiddies. Or teenagers that act like kids. Same thing tongue
But at least I don't have to work at the gallery this evening. Might try and squeeze in a nap later big_smile

Of course, to be insulting is just rude. But swearing is fairly meaningless.. It only acts to accentuate.. I find it offensive that swearing is considered taboo in the first place.. It's just pronouncing sounds or typing letters.. It's just another way for the status quo to control us.. fuck it all i say..

woops sorry.

Re: ALL MEMBERS PLEASE READ (regarding minor members on the boards)

Heh, now that's fine.  We've had some folks that thought the alphabet started and ended with 4 letter words.  Accentuation and adding color to your post is perfectly fine.  Check out the Spammers Beware thread for some of my more insane posts (for which I've gotten some swift digital kicks to groin for, lol ).

edit- Have a nice day Ravie.  Monkey hugs.

#}€k@)¥*... there... I've said it. And I'm not ashamed.

Re: ALL MEMBERS PLEASE READ (regarding minor members on the boards)

Udo -- read the original post.  In fact, go back and read the entire thread, you'll see this has all already been discussed.  But to clarify, I state clearly that members should refrain from sexually explicit language and images.  The occasional f-bomb is fine, just use it in moderation.  Because what it breaks down to is this:

Our admin wants a PG-13 website so that it appeals to the widest possible visitorship.  We mods are therefore tasked to ensure the content of the message boards meets that requirement.  If you want to talk about tits and ass and sex and get all raw and adult-like, there are myriad other horror websites where the members are allowed to run free.  But those websites also have FAR more trolls, haters and flame wars.  If that's the kind of board you're looking for, have at 'em. 

But here, members are expected to conduct themselves in the same manner as they would if they had a thirteen year old sitting next to them. 

You don't have to like it; you just have to do it. smile

Re: ALL MEMBERS PLEASE READ (regarding minor members on the boards)

Yeah so just to add my fucking thoughts on this topic. I've noticed that one of the mission statements of this here site is no offensive or argumentative posts, no shouting down and/or belittling other members and a zero tolerance policy on being a prick in general. I've sworn countless times on here yet I've only ever had 2 posts edited by mods. Once when I was pushing my luck by posting an almost naked chick and once by the guy above who took down a pic I put up that showed boobs from The Lair of the White Worm. As a rule of thumb I would say that a bit of casual swearing is fine in moderation, just no porn or sexually explicit rape fantasies and the mods on here are fairly lenient. Also, it has in no way been my experience that swearing is "taboo" on here, far from it, it's flame wars and bickering that won't be tolerated. You can curse like a fucking sailor so long as you're not yelling at someone then you're good to go.

4 swear words in that post, assuming you include 'prick' as an expletive, in which case make it 5 for repetition! big_smile

Re: ALL MEMBERS PLEASE READ (regarding minor members on the boards)

Oh yeah - interesting factoid alert - IMDB still doesn't censor the word 'twat'. Just thought you should all know that! smile

Re: ALL MEMBERS PLEASE READ (regarding minor members on the boards)

^^
To be fair, "twat" is not a pejorative in Britain (mostly).

As Lon and Fulci illustrated above, the #1 Rule on HM is Respect.  Think for 5 seconds what people would think if what you are typing was said to your 13 year old neighbor's kid.

HM is not your standard internet site; it is a community.  I haven't met any of these jokers in real life yet, but I would like to.  Even if it's just so I get to throw one of my monkeys at them.  (Minus the nuclear knife, of course) big_smile
