Can unregistered people (eg Google spiders) even see DT threads?

Ahh thanks for the clarification. I hadn't realized the rule is actually "no swearing in thread titles that aren't parody threads." My bad.

some times using the PC/medical/clean terms makes it feel more explicit:

"I asked kwik to spasm warm ejaculate onto my dorsum"

opposed to

"I Told Kwilk To Cum On My Back...."

-

I personally like your version better though.

yeah, i mean, i thought of that, but it kills the parody. smile.gif

glad u do, i do too.

I agree with Douglas. Not just for vulgarity, but for the bluntness of it. Humor is best when it is subtle. "Cumming on backs", parody or not, is about as subtle as Javyn's trolling.

It was bad, even by my standards.

Look, an adage that the mods used to use is that SF is like a bar. A bar worth it's salt wouldn't put signs up outside that said "cunty" or advertise themselves by saying "cum on kwilks back." the thread titles are what casual visitors see. It's their choice to click into a thread and there things are pretty much anything goes but people have this site up at work and there's just a certain minimum of decorum you need to project to keep the good people coming here and contributing and not just the fucking children. The mods used to enforce that very well. I guess Matt is preoccupied now and j as well and I don't even know who's left. That's nothing against the guys who put so much time and effort in. Who can blame them if they have other priorities now. But my point is that nobody seems to be policing it anymore, to the point where even a former mod is putting the word cunt in a thread title.

It's no secret things are devolving here a little. It's sad. I can't help but wonder if these things are related. Perhaps an overreaction but I can tell you there was a time this would not have gone unnoticed for days and days. Those threads have been up for a while. And here we are.

I'll go ahead and say I agree with Douglas, too, including the high likelihood that there's a relationship between the devolution of SF and these types of issues.

actually, the analogy i think they have used for this issue, is would you say that at your mothers kitchen table. and the answer to that, is decidedly no. so in line with that thought, and what is clearly the majority opinion here in the appropriateness of my thread title, i will edit it. parody or not.

sorry to all those offended, and for any negative impact i may have had on the growth of DT and the forum as a whole.

i was thinking about that. but technically, it has the * breaking up the word, and douggie admitted to making risque threads of his own.
post #9464 of 15037
note - i went to edit the thread title, and i see the entire thread has been squirreled. the thread itself was not horrible. certainly not of high quality, but not horrible. could it be put back and i will change the title? if not, no worries.

I appreciate you (all) looking out for stuff that is over the line.

 

Right now, we just don't have the collective time to read all the threads or even all the thread titles, especially in DT where I don't really want to get engrossed in anything. So things get missed more than they used to. I used to be able to read every single thread on this forum (granted, only up until 8 years ago or so) but now it's too active to do that. I used to have the time to correct spelling errors where I see them. Now editing thread titles is a little more of a pain than it was, too.

 

Anyway, we do try to do something about it when these things are noticed, but it would really help if people could report them using the report function. You are not snitching, you can just say 'er..thread title?' in the little box, and someone will probably just edit it. No big deal.
