Or you could add more mods :shrug:

Case in point when CM made his Channing Tatum report I could have edited it on the spot if I had mod status.

Instead the only thing I could do was send out text messages yelling mods (tried calling but no answer due to the fact that it was late). And it wasn't taken care of till a few hours later.

Or we could leave the censors and have no problems.

Why is this still going on? The censors exist because people keep blowing spots. The power to kill the censors lies in each member making reports, so what is the purpose of any of this discussion?

Not using censored words = no more hippo censors

Which eventually leads to:

no more hippo censors = no more word filters needed

Again, they do cause problems. Me and CM both pointed out good examples of that.

I still dont think Woodmo understands exactly where the censors are causing issues. Dont think I can explain it any better on here. Maybe JWill can, since he was victimized by it.

What Woodmo sees is the need to not blow spots. The censors will always remain b/c new members join and are not familiar or may not even abide by the rules. Unless this board closes off new membership, based on the Woodmo's definition of blowing a spot, will always exist.

I get it, but there is nothing I can do about it. Word filters can't be turned off in certain boards, and I value the spots too much to do away with them. The funny thing is many of the ones you're citing, you're responsible for, as they were enacted after your Tatum report made them needed.

Like I said....I didnt see and still to some extent dont agree that they blew spots. You can keep hammering me about it, but I dont have anything else to say about it.

I actually got a very cool meet at a spot that is very relevant to the meet.

I don't think it would be blowing up a spot if I mentioned where in the report, since it is not a typical meeting spot. But next time I talk to Woodmo I will consult him to make sure it's ok. Although I think it is, especially since the spot is relevant to the meet. Sort of like getting a King Kong photo op near the Empire State Building.
