By the way, I really like the "Like" function. Seems like it will eliminate a lot of pointless whore posts.

I just noticed that the new boards correctly post when I put two spaces after a period.

USA! USA! USA!
Pumping irony, and stuff like that.

I also like the liking. And we have unlimited liking, I think. You used to get the good vibes shut down after maybe 5 or 7 in a day.

I actually don't like that feature. I liked the autocorrect.

Is there any good reason when I try and copy/paste to this site, I am not able? It's not my computer because it occurs at work and at home.

I still am unable to add participants to a private message. For the sake of the board, I'd prefer to take some of these discussions private. If a mod could please look into what's preventing me from adding participants in a PM, I'd very much appreciate it. Thank you!

Yes, and no. We were bad.

Here is the full story.

On Monday the site was suspended by our host, IPS, due to content. The content in question was specific to the "Pee Games" thread, a video posted of a guy pissing over his shoulder. IPS saw it as a violation of their rules, and I can understand why (it also directed a number of porn bots to the site). I had to talk to a customer service rep. on the phone, agree to delete the thread/post, and keep things that fall under a hard "R" off the site.

It goes to show that what we post can shut this down, I already have one strike, I don't want to see any more. It also speaks to why I and the moderators stress quality posts without appealing to base humor. Sure, Pee Games could be funny to share with a buddy, but is not appropriate in a public forum such as this.

Wait, peeing over your shoulder is "R" rated?


I would not have guessed that. PG-13, sure, but R?


That sucks, D. Sorry you had to deal with that. For future reference, is language an issue as well? If someone posts the cool video of the guy with the big head saying, "
Spoiler
gerund participle", is that going to be "R" rated too, or is is strictly content?


And in all fairness to whomever posted that, sure, it seemed low brow, but definitely didn't seem like it was as bad as a titty shot or any kind of frontal nudity. I'm not trying to be contrarian, I'm just trying to get a better sense of "right" and "wrong" so that I'm not on the wrong side of things. And obviously no one wants to get the site shut down, so I'm just trying to clarify.


I'm sure someone will say to just play it safe and not post anything that's close, but again, where's the line? Would you, Damon, have considered pee videos to be over the line?


ETA: Or did it have more to do with the porn bots slamming the site because of it?

I thought the pee video was over the line after viewing it, yes (I didn't open the thread until we got the suspension). I personally think it's the kind of thing most on this site don't want to see in a thread. I know I don't have any inclination to see a video of anyone pissing.

Language is fine, it sounded like IPS's problem was that it was a linked youtube video (which opens up many cans of worms, back linking, bots, etc). They do scans of their forums for illicit content and that video was flagged.

While not as bad as a "titty shot" or frontal nudity, those aren't allowed either. I'm strongly considering closing the Lovely Ladies thread as well, it's too easy for it to cross the line.

I would also say based on my conversation, "the line" is whatever the people at IPS deem it to be based on their software driven scans.

Whoa, let's not do anything hasty here... :P (5)

In all seriousness, do whatever you need to do to keep the site up and running with as little hassle for you and the mods. (0) (But can I please have the ability to send PM's to multiple people?)

That sucks. Do they even give you a heads up and a chance to take it down, or is it just "boom, suspended"?

It was boom, suspended.

Also, as previously noted, the inability to add multiple people to a pm in this version of the board software is not a problem that is really fixable on this end.

That's pretty crazy.. but a good reminder that you should be kind of cautious with linking out, I suppose, especially to videos of men playing with their wangs. Whodda thunk it???? :P
