    Has all this happened since Mr Sensible became a moderator? Just wondering, John.
    "The very essence of the banking industry; to make us all, (whether we be nations or individuals), slaves to debt!" ... is it working for them yet?

    Heh, interesting but no. The LOA thing had been in motion before Mr Sensible joined the team.

    no spread legs shots
    no images showing death, violence, racism, obsenity, vulgarity or suffering
    no images that violate New Zealand law
    no images of children or animals

    Still sounds crap.
    "Contain none no..."?


    Try:
    Images must comply with the following requirements. Any images that do not comply will be removed and the person who posted them will receive an infraction:
    no visible genitalia
    no spread legs shots
    no images showing death, violence, racism, obsenity, vulgarity or suffering
    no images that violate New Zealand law
    no images of children or animals

    Seems like a great idea to me.

    I read KB at work during lunch (like right now) and there are about 8 people that can see my screen from their desks, plus any number of people that happen to walk past.
    Having NWS threads filtered out of the new posts list is perfect for me. I have the 'Show nudity' set to no, but that does not stop offensive thread titles. If I want to look at these at home I can go to that specific forum (it's not difficult).
    If I didn't have the work situation, I would register so I could see them all the time (also not difficult)

    So, the attached image is definately out then? containing as it does death, racism, and suffering.

    And what of links? A post that itself would pass muster by an archbishop. But contains a link to a site where Naughty Things may be seen?

    Absolutely!

    I was, only this morning, given a warning for posting a photograph (culled from the BBC) of a thief in some Middle Asian country tied to a post, having his feet burned.

    He was blindfolded and obviously in significant discomfort.

    (According to the news story, he was allowed down shortly thereafter and given appropriate treatment.)

    The photo was forcibly removed from my post.

    Now, I would imagine that a pictorial depiction of a man nailed to a post, bleeding to death, would be far worse in terms of potential offense and infringement of the Site Rules.

    I await news of your impending infraction and/or official warning with interest.

    kiwibiker is full of love, an disrespect.

    Ah, but we are told that the new forum is to prevent offence to the (presumably Judeo-Christian) devout. And the devout certainly could have no issues with a depiction of such holiness. Moreover to censure me for posting it would unleash a nice mares-nest of human rights issues.

    (BTW, our Lord did not actually bleed to death. The mechanism of death involves suffocation, hypoxia and pericardial perfusion - fluid accumulates around the heart and squashes it. Hence the 'water' that came out when the soldier thrust in the spear. )

    Sorry don't buy that MT.
    The "Nude" Ken and Barbie Dolls Weaver posted was very much related to the topic.

    Is that going ta PD too?? It's definitely not "On Topic". I bet no. I wonder why?

    Yes I do "Get This". Had everyone play by the rules in the first place we would not have gone there. Just think we had enough in place already.

    Heeeeey that was my nickname until a few weeks ago as well!

    The rules you are quesatioining now have been part of KB for a long time, in fact you were "enforcing" them Ixion style when you were a mod... so why question them now? Or do you just need a bone to chew?

    Not so. The principle of giving no offence to the devout is certainly new.

    Moreover, it appears that even a thread TITLE that may be construed as lascivious by the sufficiently prurient, regardless of the CONTENT of the thread is now forbidden in public view. That is certainly a new rule.

    Indeed? I wonder then if I may hope that that which lurks within the bush will grow as well.

    And, if salacious pictorial matter is to be exiled, should not the same fate be doomed for salacious words? The devout are as likely to object to them as to pictures.

    Which will make innuendo interesting indeed. Mr Random and I will have great scope for our semantic arguments.
