Did the "Ben Silver" thread get squirreled? I thought it was kind of interesting in a "Rashamon" sort of way.

There is a lot of gay talk on the forum. Lots of gay jokes and such. I'm pretty sure the gays don't really appreciate it all that much, seeing as how it's getting out of hand. Ban for gay bashing.

Has there been any discussion about the "Introduce Yourself" thread coming back?

Okay, I think I might have complained about the introductions thread being stickied, but clearly without it we get a shitload of new members creating their own threads for the purpose. It should be re-stickied.

Not saying this other than as a commentary on the board in general. I think it says something good that newbs lurk a while, then join and right away post a thread announcing their arrival. Either all these newbs have serious ballage, or we're an accomodating bunch of guys (no ed).

Another +1. Even Vox is riding this train.

It's an endless struggle on which I've commented many times. Vox is very smart and isn't the problem. Nor is labelking. The problem is that the both of them have a very dry, dark wit and require a certain level of literacy that, quite frankly, many forum members don't have (whether because they aren't native speakers of English or just because they are dumb). As such, many don't get the jokes but want to play along and end up ruining it, OR don't get the jokes and therefore think that the forum is expressing an attitude that it really doesn't have.... i.e. it's a place that is welcoming to homophobes. Banning use of certain words will stifle the wit of some very clever members. As such, the best thing to do it just report individual cases and/or call it out in the thread in question. For example, I did that this morning with HWS's thread about "ghey no homo poal" whatever. FWIW, I find that the overall attitude of the forum has gotten much better over the past year or two in its appreciation and protection of its gheyz. Mostly it's because GoSurface and mack are adorable and smart and wonderful. Sadly, I'm left to be the Queen Drama Llama who will yell at you. HOWEVER, yes, in the past coupla weeks it's getting a little out of hand again, like it does about once a year.

I'm no fan of gay bashing, and have no problem with your main point. But let's try not to be gay-patronizing and assume we know what the uniform gay-group-think is, either. "Gay talk" and "gay jokes" are pretty vague terms, and I'm not sure we're being more respectful or appropriate or whatever if we move toward a model where it's ok to joke crudely about straight sex and sexuality but not gay sex and sexuality. There are comments in, say, the "Poor Pierce Brosnan" thread that strike me as more hateful, juvenile, and ban-worthy than a lot of the "gay talk" I see.

My sense is that regardless of the context, the mods do a pretty good job of distinguishing truly hateful, offensive garbage that needs to be excised from the stuff that just needs to end up in Dumb Threads.

Yeah I gotta third the gay thing. I know Labelking is a institution and all as well as being gay but he kind of sets a bad precedent. It just spirals out of control in DT with the usual imitation threads and stupid jokes. I'm not above a few sexist/racist/homophobic jokes but it just feels a little grimy lately. And I do get LK's humor, I just find it a little desperate and pathetic at times.
