Although I don't see why you're so angry, we post porn in threads visible to everyone all the time.  It's not like the nasty stuff is solely contained in the hidden forums.

We do? I don't think so but I could have missed some of it cos I don't think about it all the time. Fuck, I don't WANT to think about such things all the time. To be perfectly honest, I'm fucking sick and tired of trying to make sure that we dodge that kind of thing. I'm sick and tried of trying to herd adults so they can behave like ten-year-olds.

If you post porn in a thread in, say, Free for All, and it's ten pages back, it's a lot less likely to be discovered than an arse with a bottle sticking out of it right up there in the newsbox. How difficult is that to understand?

But the newsbox can be hidden along with the user info.  The top bar doesn't have to be visible to anyone who doesn't want to see the newsbox.

I think you're over-reacting and are starting to be a bit paranoid about being "discovered".  We know you finance this forum and have a reason to worry about such things but this forum is 18+, the porn I had up there was mild stuff and done in good humour.  It's not like I had babies being fucked by donkeys  ::)

Odeon - calm down. I wouldn't like to think about what would happen if I reacted to disobediance in such a fashion.

Then again, you don't have to think about any of these things, you can simply go on posting anything you like. It's the nature of this board and any board like it. You think it's all a given but it's not. It's a pipe dream but the illusion is a really nice one.
I know, I know, it's just that I don't know what should be there. :GA:
Could put some awesome Jack quote in there.

Odeon, I have responsibilities irl you know, and if I dealt with them the way you just reacted, I think I would be in a pretty big mess. A cool style is always more effective, trust me it too me a long time to learn it, but it was worth it.

Plus, I could get into a wee bit of trouble if this site went down for those reasons too - for one I am accessing this site over my universities connection.

But the newsbox is NOT hidden, it's in plain view. It can be hidden, yes, but it is not hidden now. That's the whole bloody point.

Personally, I think the stuff you had up there was indeed mild. It was done in good humour, yes, and I understand why you did it. Problem is, what I think won't count if our host has a look and decides it's easier to shut us down (because they can do that, it's right there in the TOS) than try to settle things with someone who is pissed off and pays fifty times the amount I pay each month. I don't mind the money, Bint, I never did, but I do want to keep us online. To do that, I follow a few very simple rules, one of which is that I make sure we keep a low profile to the outside world, simply because that way we don't ever have to be scrutinised.

Rules are always easier if you don't make a lot of exceptions because once you start doing that, it becomes harder to enforce anything without someone screaming how UNFAIR it all is and how what we denied now was allowed last month, and what a despot I am, and all that shit and drama some people are so fond of.

See, the rules are only designed to do one thing, one thing only, and that is to ensure that this place stays online.

Don't like it? Tough. It's not your choice.

No, i don't know you have any responsibilities, hadron. Here you NEVER indicate that you have any, or that you're capable of handling them. Sorry, but that's the way you come off. Now, you may think that you come off as some kind of cool and mysterious future aspie leader, but that's just not the case. You're just another spazz, like the rest of us. In time you'll get some experience but right now your lack of it is showing.

What I still don't understand is why do you think a bit of porn would get us shut down?  Surely the agreement you have with our host states that we can have porn.  Also I think we'd all benefit if you would post the TOS for us all to see again.

I would understand all the secrecy and worry if we had a paedophilic forum or one which worshipped Hitler and had us making plans for another mass extermination BUT all we have is a forum for autistic people that sometimes write about controversial things and post the odd porn film or pic.

Sometimes you really should loosen up a bit you know.  I'm not saying what I did was right but it didn't deserve such a huge reaction from you.

Just shows what you know then really. Given some of the stuff I am busy arranging disabled rights wise in my uni, just as a vaguely trivial example, I am further up the ladder in that respect. Mind, I don't fancy being an aspie leader - would rather delegate that problem to someone else.

But no leader can survive without keeping his cool - one lesson you seem intent on not learning.

What I don't think people realize is that it takes nearly nothing to have the site shut down. It's shut down first, ask questions later, if they even bother to really ask or care. The ex has his own computer company so this is what we do day to day and I can back Odeon up on what he's saying. I know he doesn't need me too, but being in this business for 10+ years I know what he's getting at.

Carry on.

It doesn't take too much to restore the site from a backup, elsewhere either. Antagonising the membership with this callout does nothing to protect this site. If Odeon dealt with this in a more adult fashion (anyone thought of PM's - asides Camilla did hint rather strongly she did not want to be doing the newsbox etc...), the risk to the site would be greatly reduced.

No, you were an awesome newsbox bitch which is what we've been telling you since you started. but this isn't just about the newsbox bitch stuff. You have a hard time truly believing people when they compliment you. You see it as pressure to live up to something and your lack of self confidence kicks you in the ass every time. It's too bad that you can't see yourself in the light that others do. There are things that you are genuinely good at and a little more belief in self would take you far. :hug:
