Or is it?
Hey I wonder what pap will be doing for fractions? Do they exist? Who will be first to get one?
They won’t exist. I’ve always had a reasonable amount of faith in a forum’s ability to self-police. Ok, you still get trolls and suchlike, but they’re a decent example of forum self-policing. Most of them were brought around not by mods, but by other posters. Better that way.
If someone is completely out of order, making serious threats of harm or menace or whatever, they’d be gone. Vamoosed. But that’s the level I want to moderate at.
There is no swear filter, and no expectation that people are going to constrain themselves to sanitised language. I’ve got two girls of my own, ta. It’s not my job to be some kind of low-rent Mary Whitehouse figure that tells people that they can’t say fuck, and I really don’t have the same hangups about that sort of stuff as others might have.
I’ll genuinely assist anyone who feels they’ve got a genuine problem with content or posters on here, but I won’t be moderating on behalf of the easily offended.
