Given our ever increasing membership, I wanted to take a minute to bring something to everyone's attention.First of all, I'd like to post a link to our site guidelines both as a refresher to our older members, but also for reference to our newer members who may not have seen them.http://forums.genvibe.com/zerothread?id=8984In
particular, I would like to address the issue of profane/vulgar posts and content within posts.As I'm sure you've all noticed, the forum has a profanity filter that will screen undesirable language out of posts as they are submitted. This results in a series of '*'s replacing the word that was filtered.This filter is in place to catch the few words that may happen to slip. It's understood that in some cases a "blue" word may slip into a post. That's why we have the filter.The issue I want to address is the "creative spelling" to avoid being filtered.The site rules (linked above) explicity specify that profane language is not allowed in posts. Editing the word to avoid the filter amounts to willfully ignoring the rules and will be handled by GVC staff as appropriate. For the time being, we will edit the post and you will be notified. Repeat offenses may result in further action.In the coming days, there will be changes made to the filter's rules. If any words are filtered that you feel should not be, please feel free to contact myself or another moderator and we can check into it.Thank you for your cooperation!
