Allo, Smugdruggler! long time no see
:-)
welcome back!

~~~

it occurs to me there's a bigger picture to the question of the impending encroachment of Artificial Intelligence and Robot automation into not only the workforce but people's personal lives. I have a grim statistic provided by the government here (Canada) that I will share momentarily, as soon as I dig it up and look for a relevant thread.

cheers & Nanaimo Bars to all !

[quote="SteamAbacus"]On a serious note - the freeforums software/servers have been upgraded, maybe admin here need to go back and reset 'preferences' for language content? Has anyone contacted Dave Law? Do you still have any moderator privileges, Jimski?


Unfortunately I withdrew from admin when a certain party's representatives threatened to try and get me gagged. I don't remember ever having language censor settings working before, but users always respected that there could be people of all ages here and self-censored. Due to the tiny number of active users I don't think that's really a concern these days.

Testing, testing ... ****, bollocks, arse, ****, jobbies, balls........

*Edit* Seems fine to me

*Edited again* They asterisked out my fine swearing so I've re-edited it and they've appeared again. I wonder for how long?

agreed, the seven year-old girls on here who are straight out of catechism will appreciate that the grown members are careful to use and even create new euphemisms for those words they know will get any kid a whack on the knuckles with a yard-stick by the schoolmistress. This forum ought to be a respite from the trash-strewn salty sea port of daily life. Cookies, milk, a Hawkwind album on the stereo, and pleasant banter approved for the general audience. If the odd word like ear****s should happen to get blotted, we count our lucky stars and make a wish.

How odd. An hour after posting the censorship bot seems to have changed the font of my reply and asterisked out some of the naughty words. Sadly, if you do a reply the whole sweary reply can be seen in normal font by scrolling down in the topic review box just below the submit button. Lack of programming skills methinks.

One two. One two. Testy call. Testy call.

What about words that aren't officially rude but sound it?
Words like Flange or Gusset

King Rollo created Normandy. Gave the king of France a bit of a Rollo.

Enough of this king thread.
