1. Whomever just silenced jimbo... don't do that again. Jimbo is a good friend, and has done an awful lot more good for the community than you can imagine.

    1. @purpletinker He was going off on everyone and getting cherriesy. I really didn't know any better way to handle it.

      1. @redenchilada Jimbo's a she, and I'm not sure moderating someone simply for being part of an argument is a good idea.

        Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:23:35 UTC from web
        1. @purpletinker I didn't moderate her for being in the argument. I moderated her for flaming anyone who said anything to her. Regardless, if you say I shouldn't do it, I won't do it. I'm not trying to start anything tonight.

          1. @redenchilada If you have problems with @jimbo, send me an email and I'll bring it up with her.

    2. @purpletinker Did you see what she was just doing? She was kind of flat out attacking me and swearing. Allowing your personal preferences to take priority over professional ones is, well, unprofessional. Also are you unable to see who does what on the site?

      Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:13:24 UTC from web
      1. @ponybis Okay, if she's swearing, call her out on swearing. I've been called out on it myself. (Though note that the non-swearing policy IS going away as soon as I can get an auto-censoring plugin for StatusNet. @starshine was supposed to have coded one, but didn't.)

        Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:24:41 UTC from web
        1. @purpletinker How do you want the censoring plugin to work? User defined censoring or jut generic for the whole site? I don't know a ton about programming but I have the resources to learn very quickly, I could try to make one if someone isn't already doing it.

          Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:29:27 UTC from web
          1. @macpony55 Simple. Any user gets censoring by default; those who mark themselves as BOTH [a] over 18 AND [b] wishing to see things uncensored do not see things censored.

            2. @purpletinker Alright, I'll see if I can do it, should only take a couple weeks but I can't guarantee anything.

    3. @mrbrown I disapprove too, but what can I do? It's good for CYA.

      Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:34:04 UTC from web
    4. @mrbrown You are part of the community that will be using it, but I think I'll just go for what purpletinker said as it would probably be simpler and then if I can, I'll make one and set it aside in case we want to try it.

      Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:34:40 UTC from web
      1. @macpony55 make one that is user defined

        Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:35:31 UTC from web
    5. @mrbrown @purpletinker It could be set so admins or mods can allow certain people to bypass it, just an idea.

      Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:39:02 UTC from web
      1. @macpony55 It's a good idea. The problem is that if we did this, it would then open us up to potential legal action by overzealous parents screaming "OMG, YOU LET MY PRECIOUS LITTLE 16-YEAR-OLD BOBBY SEE FOUR-LETTER WORDS?! LAW SUITE!".

        Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:40:03 UTC from web
        1. @purpletinker Good point :/

          Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:41:28 UTC from web
        2. @purpletinker lol, they can't do that. First amendment and all that jazz... Plus! We are hosted in GERMANY! LOLZ!

          Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:41:43 UTC from web
          1. @cabal Hosting in foreign countries is always a good idea. If I start a website, I'm going to host it in Sweden.

            Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:43:47 UTC from web
          2. @cabal Unfortunately, the better aspects of the first amendment (there are bad aspects of it too, like giving hate groups a defense for much of their hate speech) are under attack from overzealous nanny-state laws like COPPA, etc. etc. etc. which aim to protect the chiiiiiiildren. And the site's hosted in Germany, but ich bin NICHT Deutsch.

            Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:44:17 UTC from web
            1. @purpletinker Regardless, all I have to say is: Your honor, I cannot be forced to comply with the laws of the united states, because our buisness is located in Germany, a sovereign nation that makes its own rules and has it's own civil system. This court does not have jurisdiction.

              Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:47:43 UTC from web
              1. @cabal Has that defence worked in the past? I doubt it. If that defence was valid, then somebody would be able to make websites for (e.g.) child porn and host them in countries with no laws against child porn, then say "lol sorry my website is hosted in Kiddydiddlerstan, can't touch me" when the FBI arrives.

                Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:49:37 UTC from web
                1. @purpletinker Never thought about that

                  Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:50:57 UTC from web
                2. @purpletinker I believe the defense has worked with The Piratebay, but I could be wrong. I guess the owners are kind of in Sweden now as well. But what kind of laws are in place that prevents minors from seeing profanity? Big sites like Youtube don't censor it for minors.

                  Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:51:30 UTC from web
                  1. @ponybis I'd be all in favour of letting EVERY user choose if they see 'naughty words' or not.

                    1. @purpletinker Then why not do that?

                      Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:53:26 UTC from web
                      1. @ponybis Okay. I'll just do it that way. Now all I need is that censoring plugin and we can finally get rid of that nasty prudish no-swearing policy.

                        Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:54:11 UTC from web
                3. @purpletinker thats a little extreme. Besides, all countries have ratified a UN resolution regarding that. And I doubt just because someone said something unkind will result in money grubby lawsuits. I wouldn't be surprised if a judge or tossed out the case... Then again, I can still move us to

                  Wednesday, 21-Sep-11 02:54:17 UTC from web
          3. @cabal Germany? Seriously?
