I don't usually like to do this publicly, but I don't see much of an option.

I've noticed of late a pretty serious backslide in the attention paid to our language policy. Due to personal schedule constraints, I've been pretty much editing it as I thoroughly as I can, without repercussions on the poster's part, with exception being paid to serious infractions.

I recently got a PM from a parent with a child who was concerned about some of the language they ran across in here, and in an effort to 'earn my keep' around here, I'm going to revert to handing out strikes/pulling accounts for language and content infractions.

So, from here out, should something like the videos posted in the "You Watch Porn" thread crop up again, please expect to be handed a strike in return.
We know you are not responsible for the comments posted after a youtube video should you post a link, but you ARE directly responsible for what videos you link to. Keep that in mind.

Thanks guys.

How about an 18+ age limit on T&O?

Would that be based on physical age or emotional maturity?

(The latter worries me as quite a few of us would not be able to pass the entrance evaluation.)

As much as I'd like to push for emotional maturity, this place would be pretty boring.

Plus, wouldn't that be discrimination?

My bad. I completely forgot about the language rules here since I've been out of the loop.

Was the child under 13? If so they shouldn't be on here anyway.

Because the 13+ age restriction in place for the entire forum works so well.

It was suggested as a disclaimer, not a web-bouncer keeping those underage individuals out.

Reb, your first mistake was calling us "Gentlemen."

Obviously that means the warning doesn't apply to anyone who frequents this forum!

Hah! I kill me!

And was the pm from your wife complaining about you reading all the threads to your kid? It's not fair to expose such young and fragile minds to this kind of atmosphere. The kid'll have no chance of turning out normal now.
