View Full Version : I need some clarification of teh new General Forum Rules



ArchAngel'73
05-21-2014, 09:14 AM
"The following are prohibited:
•Racist, sexist, or bigoted comments or slurs in any form (including images)."




So I just read the "new" forum rules and apparently sexist remarks are bannable.


This should mean I whenever I read "sloot" on this forum the poster should be banned.

I'm interested in how this will turn out.

I also read this as it's not okay for me to call a female a sloot but it's okay for me to call CBB a sloot because we're both male and it's not sexist.


What if I call a transsexual a sloot?
Is that sexist?

I will call my legal team for clarification (the laws of do NOT Canada apply).

In the mean time, CBB s the sloot among slots, a true sloot master, master of sloots, and good sloots gonna gif!



and what about sammiches?


If I tell a female poster to STFU and go make me a sammich is that sexist?
What if I tell BH the same thing?



Furthermore;
What if I'm insulting an entire nation, does that make me racist?

If I say Americans are clueless am I being racist as a Canadian since we're all basically from the same places?

If that's the case is " 'Murica" now a bannable word?


Oh my.
I just want to lift heavy sh*t and put it down again, how do you expect me to remember all this??

Interesting rule set. I wondered what spurned the new changes. Should be interesting to see how it is applied across the site.

I spend time in the misc and your first paragraph is the reason why; 90% iof the discussion is race, women, and insults sprinkled with technology, watches colognes, and teacher student relations.

My guess is that someone is trying to clean it up.

I was just curious if there was a tipping point.

Why though?
You can clean up a pig trough, wash it out, sanitize it, but at the end of the day it's still a pig trough.

They should stop wasting their time on such idiocy and focus on ridding the site of people who say sh!t like this:

From the Misc "What would you do to her?" thread:

"Walk up to her, then turn 360º and walk away"

If they would just ban stupid then 99% of the other problems would leave with it!

Edit: It occurs to me if they ban stupid then who's gonna buy all the sups?

Basically this. Most posters can tell the difference between a joke between posters that have been bantering for a while and the right down ugly chit. General Misc is full of really ugly chit and people there aren't joking either. I remember when the news came out of a lot of sexual assaults on university campuses, and a list of the worst offenders, somebody posted something like "bishes out there are getting wet just thinking about applying there". That's not even the worst comment.
Although considering how far gone the General Misc has become, the only way mods can possibly enforce the rule is to ban 99.99% of posters there.

Here is my take on it, and I will get flamed for this but whatever. This is an open forum on a website that is owned by a private company. They could ban whoever whenever for whatever they want. We don't pay for the privilage to post here so there it is. However, to say that something offends you and a person should not say it is a very conceited concept. Why is your right to not be offended more important than their right to say it? And to claim moral decency, well that is just a matter of geography. A person can say whatever they like, and I can tell them I disagree with them as much as I want, but I most certainly don't have the right to force them to shut up.

Well, since you're attracting flies you now have a hobby.

We know what also attracts flies, but our Aussie don't look like that, not yet, anyway.

Clearly you don't read pinyin well. I asked him how often he blow-dries his sack in the locker room. :DNo, you said hello and spelled it incorrectly and then said "speak common language" ( as a question ) which makes no sense to a Chinese person. But good effort though.
Here is what you needed to say. Ni hao. Ni whey shou putonghua ma ( Hello, do you speak common language? )

And just so you know Karl, I air dry my nut sack in the locker room. Takes a bit longer, but I find the fluffiness of the air dry makes your nuts feel like they are being lifted up and carried around by 1000 whistling fairies for the rest of the day.

I was using pinyin spelling (as I learned it..lol)..... huì sounds like "whey" with a falling tone.

Ni huì (meaning "you can") speak the common language phrased as a question. Seriously though, are you fluent in Mandarin? How long did it take you to learn it?

:)Anymore trips away to soon and I'll be getting there. Didn't touch a weight while I was in Aus. The rest actually did me a favour. Hit the gym first last night and niggling little soreness issues I was having in right shoulder gone, felt like I hadn't missed a day as lost nothing on the weights and felt like a million bucks in there. Might need to do this more often, just kick it for a week every so often.

^^ Thanks for the tip man ....This will prevent 10 gallon sack from feeling 5 gallons flat.The 4 tones are the most difficult things to learn ( well not so much the tones, but when to use them) you can have 2 words that are exactly the same, but with different tones that mean nothing like each other. No the problem is this. In the west, if someone is speaking to us who's native isn't English, we can make out what their broken English is trying to say ( most times ). Its the way our brains work. Chines people almost to every person I have met here, do not have that ability. so even if I say the correct words in a sentence, if I use just one wrong tone on a word, they look at you dumbfounded. It's amazing to me that this is the way it is.
Yes I can speak Mandarin Karl, not as fluent as I would like, but been at it for about 2 years now, but I don't think you are ever as fluent as you would like and I taught myself. Trouble is, most people I deal with here speak English and want to practice English all the time and don't want to speak Chinese with you.
My 19month old daughter is speaking in 3 languages and understands them all, so she is killing me. LOL

^^ Congrats on learning a very difficult language. I am in the process of learning it now .... and you are absolutely right. The tones are a killer. My girlfriend is from southern China and she helps me with my horrific pronunciation ... but I frequently mess up the tones and she has no clue what I am trying to say.

Very cool you can speak it even though you're still not quite as fluent as you'd like.

I got to know a very pretty Chinese lady during my last 2 years of work before I retired on 12/23/10.
I practiced as much as I could and still have my .xls cheat sheet with a 100 or so phrases but actually speaking it repeatedly is necessary.
As much as I'd love to be fluent (and impress pretty Chinese ladies) I find it a difficult language for the reasons you state.

I did learn some of the examples you mention like 'Ni hui bang wo ma' - 'wo neng ba ni ma', etc. ('ma' indicating a question is being asked?) - 'wo you yi ge wen ti', etc.
I don't think I have enough neurons or lifetimes to learn it as I would like.

Carry on....

I'm so lucky that Japanese is not a tonal language. I tried learning Chinese years back and just gave up in frustration. The change in tones just killed me. JeffAus, like you I'm self-taught in my third language (learned French years back and don't remember much--my shame) so I have my strengths and weaknesses. Funny, my older son sounds identical to me on the rare occasions he speaks English--same inflection, tone, everything--while my younger son's English sounds like katakana. Example, mative English speakers will say "Harry Potter" pronouncing the 'r' sounds the way native English speakers do. My younger son will say "Harree Potta"...drives me crazy.

At least my wife understands my Japanese. Now, if I spoke with a Kagoshima accent, I'd never be understood. People from Tokyo can't understand the language spoken by people from Osaka and NO one can understand anyone from Kagoshima. It's Japanese...but not.

I had made that observation on my own some time ago by just listening.
My pea brain does relate better to the Japanese language structure.
That still doesn't mean I wouldn't need a few lifetimes to master it to my satisfaction (and impress pretty Japanese ladies :) )

I just got back to China from 3 weeks in Aus.
3 years away from the place was far to long and I didn't realize how soft and gentle I had become. But my Aussie mates gave me a good dose of Harden the F#kc up (thank god for mates) I became Aussiefied again. So having said that, you're all bunch of pussy phaggot ghey sloots. Deal with it.

Is that banned camp material now?

100 or so phrases is still pretty good. It is a hard language, but I am really enjoying learning it. Plus, I get to speak it (often badly) regularly with people from China.

That is cool that you can speak Japanese well -- How about the writing script? Can you read/write that? I can now recognize about 100 Chinese characters, and of course that is just barely scratching the surface. My attempts at actual writing though serve as comedic relief whenever a Chinese person actually sees it :D

I'm self-taught in reading and writing as well. I learned hiragana first, the graceful curved 'letters' of one alphabet (ex: あ/い/う/え/お--which are pronounced in order ah/ee/oo/eh (not like the Canadian "eh") /oh. Then I learned katakana which is used for foreign loan words (ex: ア/イ/ウ/エ/オ) and finally kanji. It's based on Chinese kanji, of course, but the pronunciation is totally different. And it's really an all or nothing proposition. Either learn 'em all or not. I'm able to read a newspaper and a fair number of documents, but for anything technological or medical in nature, I have to ask my wife or someone else. I'm still learning, though. a lifetime endeavor.

as part of your therapy, I strongly recommend that you intentionally piss off 2 members a day for the next week until you overcome your fear of being ostracized around here.

Easiest way to do this apparently is to post anything in the female bodybuilding section as a guy. And there, I just pissed them all off again....
