View Full Version : Censorship Policy


Phobia

The users of ChiefsPlanet decided many years ago that we would censor a select few objectionable words. We decided the F-bomb, C-bomb, and N-bomb were amongst those. We have since added ANY racial slur to that list. We've also stated that any attempt to circumvent our automatic censor would result in severe punishment.

However, we've not been very consistent. For instance, I've always allowed a partially censored "F*CK" to stand. I have never allowed umulats or other such methods of fooling the filter to remain if I discovered them. Our lack of consistency has recently been pointed out and I'd like to solve the issue. Please vote your preference.

This is a tangent, but what is the Planet's policy for making major decisions like this. Is it simple majority? Is there a guideline regarding the number of options in the poll or about how they should be constructed (to avoid manipulation)? Might not be a bad idea to establish that policy at some point, or re-state what the current guidelines are.

What's inconsistent? Taking measures to make those four letters appear in that specific order is verboten. Self-censorship that falls short of all-asterisks is okay. That's just where the line presently is.

I'm happy with where the line is now... but, if the majority vote to up the censorship level it won't break my f*cking heart or anything.

Simple majority in something like this.

There have been a few circumstances where it has required more but it is generally announced in advance.

For instance, if 30% of our board feels a moderator is out of line and deserves to be fired, I think that's too high.

I'm not sure there's any real point to the censorship if f*ck is ok.
I also wonder how any other variations wouldn't be ok, since f*ck is about as close to actually writing the word without censorship as one can get.

As for the censorship, I don't really care one way or the other.

I really do not see the point, if there is anyone on this BB that does not encounter the word f*ck several times a week they are leading a very sheltered life. This includes anyone down to the age of 10. Parents who freak out over the word should visit a middleschool and really listen this word is in very common usage from around the 6th grade on.

I feel like Chiefsplanet is a little world where I'm allowed to be myself among people who can also be themselves without fear that they are breaking the rules or being censored. That's why we all left the Star board in the first place.


I'm not saying that censoring a few words is as bad as what the Star board was doing, but I think it's a step in the wrong direction. I believe a good majority of the people on this board use these words on a regular basis, and even if they don't, few are probably offended just to see them. I also disagree that Chiefsplanet should be some kind of "clean" enviornment. We're a bunch of football fans that like women, and farts and shit. We shouldn't be ashamed of that. This is the place where we should CELEBRATE that.


Having an optional filter (like we do) should be enough.
Having the option of turning off signatures, avatars, and attachments (like we do) should be enough.
Policing ourselves in regards to spam, trolls, and VERY offensive posters (like we do) should be enough.

I fail to see your point... Stupidhead... ;)

1. I speak for everyone?
-Nope, I offered my opinion. Am I still allowed to do that?

2. You are a football fan that doesn't like women, etc...
-Never said you had to. But does the fact that you DON'T like women disallow us to celebrate the fact that most of us do?

3. Board has been good about being considerate...
-Considerate of what? People's sensitivity to "inappropriate language?" Maybe you haven't seen the multiple threads about the word "F*ck" recently. Regardless, if you are sensitive about those words (or pictures or anything else), it's up to you to avoid them through the means provided. IE: profanity filters, turning off avatars/sigs/attachments. It shouldn't, IMO, be up to us to protect you from things you don't like by ceasing. This board is built by and meant for adults who are responsible for what they do and see.

See, this is exactly my point. We come to Chiefsplanet, not just for football news, but to get to know people. This is a community. If we were all meeting at a bowling alley, EnDelt would have every right to say this. So, he should have every right to say it here. If it pisses off Angela, then HE has to deal with it. But it shouldn't be Chiefsplanet's job to protect EnDelt from that wrath. Consequently, if we disallowed EnDelt to be his normal, cheery self, we couldn't say that we actually know him could we? But, I'd say by not censoring EnDelt, we've all gotten to know him pretty well, and that's a GOOD thing!

Now, if some kid walks into the bowling alley and hears some adults swearing, that's not the end of the world. Same should go with Chiefsplanet.

It shouldn't, IMO, be up to us to protect you from things you don't like by ceasing. This board is meant built by and meant for adults who are responsible for what they do and see. Agreed. Although I would go further. If you don't think something is appropriate...then don't say it. That's your perogative. Your responsibility, even. Just like it's mine to decide that abso-f*cking-lutely nothing is inappropriate. Filter if you want, that's also your right. Personally, I don't see the point; I'm fooling myself if I think seeing '****' instead of 'f*ck' somehow covers up what's being said, even in spirit. And in the end, jesus christ, we're talking about words here. As for kids, well, as has been pointed out, this is an adult site, but if a kid on here sees (gasp) one of my "dirty" words, then by all means I grant the supervising adult full permission to point at me as a bad man and an example of how you do not want him/her to behave.

However, as ptlyon pointed out, we used to have the ability to create our own filters. That way, those of us who do not want to see that stuff did not have to see it and did not impose on the innate rights of the potty-mouthed. Forget the search function and give us that option.

Because the purpose of language is to communicate. People have chosen to single out words used as adjectives as offensive despite their meaning and context. It's completely beside the point of language and words, so it's irrational. What is rational is hearing what is being communicated and reacting to that, not to the medium.

Note I'm not saying that people aren't genuinely offended, they are, I'm just saying it's irrational despite that. The reason they are offended is obvious, they were conditioned to be since children, but that doesn't make it rational. I would think more of a person who chose to control the feeling instead of using it to lord over others as so many do, like you right now for instance.

The users of ChiefsPlanet decided many years ago that we would censor a select few objectionable words. We decided the F-bomb, C-bomb, and N-bomb were amongst those. We have since added ANY racial slur to that list. We've also stated that any attempt to circumvent our automatic censor would result in severe punishment.

However, we've not been very consistent. For instance, I've always allowed a partially censored "*****" to stand. I have never allowed umulats or other such methods of fooling the filter to remain if I discovered them. Our lack of consistency has recently been pointed out and I'd like to solve the issue. Please vote your preference.

Since this thread was the Planet's vote it would seem that the vast majority either abstained or did not want the censorship. I have not been able to find a final ruling on the subject, but I am still looking.

Hey CRONUS, you're a good guy. this is really not that big of a deal. I have seen much worse elsewhere, and in fact some places would just ban you for questioning the board owners policy (even though that's pathetic, it's true). this place doesn't have too many rules as it is, and I like it that way. so why don't you just let it go? I'll even invite you to be my friend. :D

Actually I was going to do a post that says I am done. I will respond if people quote me and ask something but otherwise I am sure I have made myself both annoying while making my point. It is time for me to stop.

Or we could have the option to choose whether to see the words or not with a special censor option like other boards have.which is why i love my firefox extension that allows me to filter out specific words, threads, and most importantly all posters (including quotes from them)...

it's as if they totally disappeared into the void...

i really love my firefox...
