When and why was it removed from the front page anyway?

We always were able to type in the F... & C... words, so when did that change?

IS RR being forced to tone down? It was never particularly bad on here compared to other sites so what's happening?

It was removed from the front page by the Admin/Owners ie Good & Bad Co. The idea being to remove the meaningless dross from the front page as they have done successfully with the sister site. It ought to be noted that dross does not equate to scurrelous, abusive in a banter way or the like - that is what Lil's is for.

The filter for the F and C words was applied because MOD machines have a filter set which will not allow such rough sailor talk through and restricts the users ability to b=view - again this is modelled on the sister site where it works well.

People occasionally get confused between site administration and censorship - this is not the case and Lil's should be seen as the main forum for the more base sorts of discussion.

This is my take - should anyone have any snags then a simple e-mail to the COs will provide further enlightenment.

Actually, some of that meaningless dross is quite entertaining, especially compared to some of the repeatedly inane questions being posted by some on the newbies forum, because they are hard of reading/understanding and can't be bothered to do some basic research. I'd rather see that forum ditched from the front page.

Who gives a fcuk about MOD machines? RR is an unofficial social forum on the INTERNET, not the MOD's INTRANET. It shouldn't matter what filters the MOD systems have set up. MOD computers aren't there for people to spend their time on t'interweb. (Although I occasionally use them for that purpose myself)

If we're unable to view replies to the Gash Barge on the front page then I can see more and more of the 'dross' being posted in Lil's and other forums.

I'm with G_R on this.

J-G, dont be so hard on the newbies, it's endless hours of fun on there. Just let someone post a sensible, relevant answer then have fun......If you can restrain yourself that long which I admit is very hard at times.
