I like a fairly clean, pg13 board. It's nice when people treat each other decent and with respect. Like adults should. with a healthy regard for the younger genration.

Give a hoot! Don't pollute!

It is official. I have turned into my old man. Let's knock off the cutsey ways of spelling profanity and all of the kindergarten insults. Let the dump run amok. The way it is now, you only get there on purpose. You don't accidentally end up there. A lot of the newcomers have mentioned that this is a "clean" board and they are glad to join. Let's keep it that way. Let the dump do what it will. New posts gallore! Leave the rest of the forums as they are.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled hot rod forum.

The problem with an R rating is things slip into X rated to easily, can someone define what the difference between an R rating and an X rating would be on a Hotrod site?

Quantifying this might be more difficult than you realize.

Not enough options to vote for.

R is a step above pg13. So there is occasional dirty words sneaking by the filters so what? Its a misspelled word, are they going to go after all the people who misspell word...they should you know to be fair about it. The majority of people posting about the censorship are against it but it dosn't matter, somebody complained and so now everybody suffers??? Some of The guests in Jon's house are not happy, some could care less.

now if you think, this isn't just jon's house. if we were'nt here, HR.com wouldn't be here. we make it what it is. the top hot rodding forum. if we weren't here, nobody would know about it. there's over 25,000 people on here, now if it were only jon and the mods, what kind of place would this be?

not a very big one. and sure as s.... crap not the top forum.

we're the majority, we should speak.

besides, what kind of poll is that? G, PG-13, or X? c'mon. my prespectiong of PG-13 is alot different than yours. there is still cussing, and nudity, and beer, and weed, and ect. this is turning into G. not pg-13

the problem is that every one has a different interpretation of r,x pg-13 and so on i don't mean to sound negative but no matter how hard you try someone is not going to be happy your not going to please everyone. i think that the way it is now is the most practical way of dealing with it every now and then a mod may raise a few eyebrows but thats life make the best of it. its not easy to be a mod. i don't envy there position at all because its dammed if you do and dammed if you don't

moderation

I personally feel the mods do a great job with this site... I visit maybe 5 to 7 car forums like this every day maybe 4 or 5 times each. Hands down this is the best site out there.... I think thats so because the mod's keep the place in check.... I am a big boy and i can wade through all the cussing and little cute letters that indicate what the person is trying to say. I can also just not read the threads that i don't like. but the fact is it's john place and we play by his rules. I just so happen to like his rules and if i did not i could just leave...... I quit posting on a few sites because the flame jobs got so out of hand. I just don't even go there any more. It's funny because you can see all those places just going down hill while this forum continues to grow.... I have a nephew that is 4 years old. I see a glimmer of a motor head in him. I hope in the next few years i can read this site with him and not worry about what he is going to see.....


I would be willing to bet all the same people that complained about the drug thread being removed would report me if i started a thread explaining the bible and why with out a personal relationship with christ you will not be going to heaven......

well honestly what's the point for the pole then? Do absolutely nothing or keep goign the way it has been with people getting kinda upset about over-moderation? Moderators have been moderating more lately. Personally, I don't think they should. Hey man, if something gets way out of hand, that's what the dump is for. But micro-managing and screening through line after line of posts for a naughty word is kinda nuts.

The mods do a great job. I never question them. They're like the policemen of the board. They do their job and most people know when they get out of hand. So, get over it.
