Instant Noodles, G-a-y was changed to "cheerful" in your post as a result of the forum word censor-o-matic. This is not because of any prejudice we have against those who are cheerful, but because some... unenlightened individuals have thought that it would be really clever of them to write "omg thats so cheerful lol."


And guess what? Half of them go to my school!!!

Stupid, stupid people.

Same here. No matter how popular the offender, they do not escape my wrath.

It's not the same at my school, popularity is not so clearly defined, but my point is, I don't care if you are Dick Cheney, if you use g-a-y in a derrogitary manner, you will get one helluva tounge-lashing.

Yep, very serious use. It would never be used for something ridiculous, oh, I don't know, riddle games.

I'm afraid that hacking this site IS very easy although I'd better not say how.

why not have an R18 room with decoder for all of those things? so people can become aware of them and avoid them in there post, e.g. replace g*ay with 'male homosexual' or 'happy' as needed. (the only reason it would be R18 is the content will be adult in design)

Over 18, please. Honor system in force. You are responsible for your own outrage and level of offendedness. No porn, no hate speech, as usual.

We used the words that would most often break their links. Sucks to be them.

:wink:


The Guesthouse, yes, not always the greatest. I think that the usage of the filter here is very just indeed, unlike other forums I have been to, where there is no filter.

Long John, if you know how this site might be hacked, you should tell an admin so they can fix the problems, plug the holes.

I was assuming that they know about it - but you're right I maybe should check. In any case, I don't think anyone is able to do anything about the root cause, at least not at the moment.

I was stuck with a similar set up on a site I used to help maintain and logged in one day to discover that our home page was redirecting to some Russian site :?

Well, we don't want that to happen. I am sure we can find someone who can fix the problems with the site, and if we pointed out the bugs to the fixer, we could get the site somewhat hacker-proofed.

IT people are like plumbers. You are desperate to have them arrive and stop the flood, then you are desperate to have them come back again to sort out the mess they made. That's a generalisation. I found a good plumber. We swapped trade for trade. We charged (swapped) each other a fortune. When we rang each other up for help, we both used the same songbook - we understood each others level of desperation. For him losing his Outlook address book with all his customers was equivalent to a flood.
