Right ~ so it is a song by the Mothers Of Invention, also the name of a couple different bands, one from the San Diego area in the 6Os, another one of unknown origin that recorded in the 90s/00s.

But this is neither here nor there.

This is about the Brain Police on this forum, you know ~ the ones that decided S EX is a word that they don't think people should use or see.

In addition to the usual four-letter suspects,
R APE
is also taboo.

Let's see just how ******* far this thing goes :

breast
thigh
tongue
lick
oral
****
thumb
crisco
****
hairpie


that should be good for starters.
the mechanism doesn't always kick in right away.

If you stumble across any of your words that you don't think anyone other than puritanical offspring of unmarried parents would mind seeing and is inexplicably censored,
add it right here !

yes and I see you managed to 'slip that one in', if you'll pardon the phraseology.

Lol

But it will censor it.
It wiped it twice last night, even broken up - - - - - -, but not right away.
Taking a guess, it will be the sponsors to the freeforums and the usual suspect:

Greed.

They likely want as many people NOT offended on the sites and VIEWING the adverts as possible??

Anyway, I already went to bed and got up to smoke a cig.
I just can't stand the commercials and jingles on even my YouTube UFO related shows.
I just can't stand the human race as it is./

I t WOULD be wild if it is caused by some kind of "other", however, that has gained that kind of power in our world but just isn't quite able to pass itself as human, yet? :D

so far, no star !

I guess we'll need to stay ahead of the curve on this ourselves ~ sort of a modern day version of Goofus and Gallant :


Unacceptable :

**** **** , ************ !
Go ****** ******* **** **** *****
got *** ******** *** **** again !



Acceptable :

Jeepers, Cissy !
Go tell Uncle Bill that Buffy has
got her finger caught in the gumball slot again !

so I see the 'lowdown brown eye' got the boot !

So did that word for the thing worn over the ears to protect one's hearing from dangerous decibel levels.


I wonder about the Chinese numerical character for the number 10,000 ~ you know, a myriad ? its the same one as the Buddhist symbol for good luck.

Let's try it :




FYI ~ it isn't a racist symbol unless it's rotated 45 degrees

Are rude words censored? I never knew. There's a challenge to those of us who find swearing both big and funny. Better to use some euphemisms then.....

(Have you tried re-editing the posts? When this censoring happened before I found that the censored words were reinstated after re-editing. Forum software glitches?)

"Monty Python - I Bet You They Won't Play This Song On The Radio

I bet you they won't play this song on the radio,
I bet you they won't play this new $%^& song.
It's not that it's %$(* or #$*&^&* controversial
It's just that the @*%$ing words are awfully strong.
You can't say ^&*@ on the radio,
Or $@#! or ^&*% or 4*%*
You can't even say I'd like to ?:"* you someday
Unless you're a doctor with a really large ~!*%
So I bet you they won't play this song on the radio
I bet you they don't *&%$ing well program it.
I bet you those &*(#ing old program directors
Will think it's a load of horse $&!#"

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?

indeed Steam - that makes sense - hopefully it will be resolved to everyone's satisfaction and the dust settles

Interesting insight, Steam. sounds quite plausible. I personally dont mind that so-called "four letter" cuss words should be censored; it's when words like s ex,
r ape or mu ff get barred without 'questionable' context that in of itself I find to be an insulting encroachment. Then there's the broader question of AI being used in a censorship capacity, which leads to speculation as to scope of content which might come under proscription, such as rightful dissent ~ although from my test it would appear there's nothing 'intelligent' about its designs.

"Morning" fellers (in this thread)....
clever schtuff


I agree about curse words being unimportant and just wish to say my REALLY negative attitude is because of USA where I am.

My window into life is the media.

Anyway, I hear people are attacking one another pretty regular....maybe in a bigger picture and sadly this might help if it spans other freeforums where such might occur??

mixed feelings but it is just another opportunity for us to be Hawkwind peeps :)

Have a nice day/evening everyone
