Yea, I've seen you throw out this bit about activity on TAM declining. You are wrong as to why it declined. The Admins have discussed it with the mods. If they want to share that with all members, they can. But I think it's up to them to do it.

It has nothing to do with mods, or word filters, etc.

Word filters are very common on many forums. I've seen them used often.

No problem for me. Actually,I didn't think that it was a new policy.

Re: To everyone on TAM - new policy

I use crap instead of **** most of the time.

I use screw this instead of **** this most of the time as well to name a few. Is that considered a banable offense?

Good things come to those who wait...greater things come to those who get off their a$$ and do anything to make it happen.

Separately, I think it is silly to filter curse words yet have lengthy discussions about vibrators, orgasms, penises, vaginas, herpes, dildos, strap ons, crotchless panties, assless chaps, anal sex, buttplugs, blondilocks, trouser monster, pornography, threesomes, foursomes, dirty sanchez, masturbating, warts, women with abnormally large hands (i.e. man hands), handcuffs, whips, chains, breasts, nipples, pubic hair, arbitrator, facial, fallopian tube, feminism, swamp ass, scrotum, cleveland steamer, personal "massager", etc ....

But I get it, rules are rules ...
I'm flattered! BTW, still waiting for my latest batch of your **** pics.

I think this is what bothers me the most.. but rules are rules.. I have used a lot of **** in the past ...but I do it for ass , damn , even hell on occasion and the now illegal "the F-word". Never had the intent to assault a poster.. just more of using such words for effect or to bring home a story.

I assume this LINK (I will refrain from linking it) on you tube entitled "Using Proper English: The F Word" would be bannable then? -because of it's content that the 4 letter word is used and spelled out - many times, giving various definitions.

So is it OK to do what I just did - to NOT link but describe how to find a link then, what it is entitled - since a filter will fix it anyway... or is this pushing it? This same video can be found on You Tube entitled "The word ****" (I let the filter catch that)

Totally kidding, love you SA, agree with you and certainly hope that would still be bannable if meant in earnest.



Sigh, my wife gives me the speaking treatment.

Just the mere thought of @SimplyAmorous being banned is totally unthinkable!

You are right. It is not a new policy. What is new is that we wrote it out more clearly and we will now be enforcing it.

Ok, something good came of this thread. The admins fixed the following................

On the way down without a cocktail in sight, some of us were allowed to have a look inside the cockpit. Once the flight was over and we stepped off the ramp, I told my troops to go to "action", which saw all of them **** their weapons, as a few cockatoos flew by.

Also... half-cocked

So now it's not filtered when part of another word.


They also fixed this....

**** Whittington and Charles ****ens

is now filtered as follows

**** Whittington and Charles Dickens

Re: To everyone on TAM - new policy

For the record, everybody needs to understand Elegirl made the filter corrections happen.

She does a lion's share of the troubleshooting work amongst us moderators, and I don't know if everyone is aware of this.

There's been plenty of posts and messages to her over this issue, varying from polite to hateful.

She does a ton of work behind the scenes. Please take that into consideration before you hit the send button with a not so polite post or message towards her.

Re: To everyone on TAM - new policy

So we still can't say something like "Madi$on Wisconsin" to bypass the filter for the website that must not be named?

Of course I will comply but that seems odd.
