Everyone needs to understand that this is a dynamic site with dynamic content that can not beasily sanctioned by myself or any other moderator. We do have a a word filter on all the posts. Granted the word list is quite small, but at the time of making the board I only put some of the worst words in. They will get substituted for bleep when found in a post. If you find some are sneaking through, tell me via PM, and I will add them to the list of words being bleeped out . If you see them in a post, and are not getting bleeped (my word for censored) then pom me the link as I can see why its not getting substituted. I will also see what I can do about adding this list of badwords to the registration process so people cant register a name with them. It will be hard to do and I make no promises on this.
It is also important to note that what some may consider cursing is not considered cursing by others. An example being edbee's use of word in the previous message.
You are also saying that this has started happening now for a while where curses have been more commonly used. If so, LET ME KNOW. I can not do anything without being told. This is the first time, in a long time, that this has been brought to my attention. And every time it is brought to my attention it is fixed. I personally do not have the time to monitor every thread on this site to make sure clean language is being used. I also do not expect the people working on the logs to have to monitor every log for langauge being used. They are here to solve hijackthis logs and they doing an excellent job at that. I rely on my censor list and if words are sneaking through, I need to be told them.
As for giving someone the ability to monitor the site, unfortunately certain functions, like changing names or updating the censor list, are only available to the Administrator class and I am currently the only one and will be for the time being. There are moderators in certain forums like the HijackThis logs but there are currently no Global Moderators. Why? Because of last time with Brunt I have become wary of giving out such a powerful position again. So for if there is a problem post immeditately notify me.
I think I am objective and fair concerning this site. People in the past have contacted me with their concerns and I have addresses or told them how I felt on their concerns. I try to be fair to everyone, but at the same time not change the views as to how the site will be run. if someone has a fair point, I will address it. If I feel they are wrong, I will tell them so and why i feel that way. I am, though, not close minded and open for any issue. Do not be hesitant to bring these concerns to me.
For those who do not work on HJT logs, let me tell you they are a demanding process. The people who work on these logs, here and at the other sites, do it tirelessly. These logs though, are a big job. Some of them take a decent amount of time to reply to and consume a lot of persons time. FOr that reason, many people become machines. They get their log, scan through it, and fix it. I for one probably would not even recognize all the time the peoples names or if they cursed in it. I am to blame here as well as I am sure I have let some of these slip through in the past. That is where I need to relay on my censor list, which will be fleshed out with all your help.
The last thing I am going to address, and this quite honestly bothers me the most, is that people would call someone on this board ignorant because they chose to HELP
someone here. I will not tolerate that. I do not think its fair and/or appropriate. Everyone who comes to this site does it because they honestly like to help people and like the community here. No one, and I mean no one, gets paid for working on this site. You all sacrifice time with your family and friends to help strangers. Why? Because you believe in what you are doing and want to help these people. To call someone something that could be considered insulting on this board when all that person does here is help people is worse than the cursing in my opinion. If its a troll or other jerk, then feel free to abuse them at will of course
Please do not hold back on me. My word is not law here, at least I try not to let it be.
