aren’t words like “fabulous persong*t,” “retard,” “downy,” and various other words hateful? In the discussion of whether or not a swastika was offensive I ran across the word “fabulous personry.” I’m not gay, but would that be offensive to a gay person? Where does the censorship stop… be careful what kind of precedent you are setting here.

It is my opinion that any and every one and thing should be fair game to make fun of or nothing at all. Otherwise, there will always be one group feeling discriminated against.

And I don’t mean to be a whisle blower, by any means, but has anyone seen JB’s thread? I mean for Christ (Buddha, Krishna, Moses, Muhammad/allah, ect. (didn’t want to offend anyone, but this list could get long)) sake, there is some of the most offensive **** in that thread, albeit f’n hilarious. I mean ****, I poked fun at abortion, 9/11, Timothy McVeigh, and John Gacy just in my post… just saying

This debate actually goes back a long time in forumwarz history

The long and short of it is this – While the game is filled with offensive content and rife with vulgarity, profanity, and the like (point being to skewer internet lifestyle) the cold fact is the site is privately owned and the sites owner has a thing about swastikas. His exact response was that he doesn’t like the idea of someone doing some light googling of his name, finding the site, and seeing a swastika.

Ask me about how many male reproductive organs in my bum :zak:

being offended is for fabulous persons.

oh i’m sorry, i hope i didn’t offend anyone with that previous statement.

fabulous persons.

­

no, really, people take things too seriously. but that’s because other people out there do too. i mean, i couldn’t care less if someone googled my name and found a swastika, because a little further research could explain it. but since most people are stupid and can’t research more, they’ll just think i’m a nazi.

the thing i really don’t understand is why are swastikas only banned on half of the site. it’s not like grp posts don’t come up on google or anything, and i doubt anyone besides the people who already post here understand anything of what fwz is about and how it “works”, and as i said before, few people do more research after they actually found the swastika (which i still think is a little far-fetched).

Bandaney was banned for this post by Catt although

Shock is only banned on half of the site.

Nudity is only banned on half of the site.

Or, to look at it from the other way:

Almost EVERYTHING is permitted on a full half of this site! That’s teh ForumWarz Difference®™

Only response through this entire thing that made any sense. Although, since not one mod brought it up I suspect their reasoning is different (read nonexistent). I think everyone can get behind the owner of the site having final say over what may or may not be posted for whatever reason they like, trying to convince us that a news article about a U.S. navy barracks in the shape of a swastika being refitted to alter it’s shape is offensive is kinda silly.

 

Edit: removed quote of banned post.

I have to agree that it’s beyond time that an admin stepped in and said what they want.

You’d think he’d care more about swastikas in content created by his company Log in to see images! than user posts on the forum. But hey, not our call.

I do think the banned posters of the swastikas likely didn’t know that what they were posting was forbidden.

Ask me about how many male reproductive organs in my bum :zak:

i was actually trying to make a point when i said “fabulous persons”.

i wanted to see if i would get banned just for saying it, even if it wasn’t directed at anyone and just to, you know, introduce to the point i made after it.

so i don’t know, i got a “warning ban”, is that just bluffing, like a fake ban? just a message saying i was banned so people get scared and think “ooooh, i can’t post something like that or i’ll get banned”? or did i really get banned? i don’t know because i went shopping and just came back, but i can’t know if i got a really short ban in that time.

all i’m saying is, get the stick out of your bumes, people. or… not. whatever. idc.

i hope i don’t get banned for saying that, since there’s been so much sensitivity lately. it’s like we’re not allowed to be angry or annoyed and react humanly in cd you know Log in to see images!
