Who here thinks that there is a need for a 100% uncensored forum? A forum that everyone has the freedom to say whatever they want to without having to worry about offending anyone or getting banned. There could be a disclaimer explaining that the forum is 100% uncensored, and if you are easily offended this place is not for you!
I'm in, there are several people that need a little dose of reality!
I'm just tired of these bible thumping holy rollers coming in to a thread just to tell everyone that they can't believe what they are reading and how everyone is going to hell. Then they start fighting with everyone that doesn't agree with them, and start threating to get people banned.
hahaha, my goodness.....what the.... u scared, oh you are tired of it, yeah i do understand you... what differentiates us form lower animals is the ability to listen understand and respect each other.....to each according to his own thoughts,,,,,
I'm not afraid of being banned. I've been banned from almost everything at one point of my life, so if I get banned it's gonna be worth it.
My point is that I'm tired of people coming into a conversation that they have nothing to do with and telling everyone that they are all wrong because they don't live along the same retarded guidelines they do.
oh now come on darling....they add the spice to these forums! how could we ever have a laugh without them?
To a point it's cool. When they have a hint of a sense of humor, it's cool. When they can take a joke and roll with it, it's cool. But when they think that they are above everyone and can do no wrong, that's when I have to fight back the urge to make them cry.
oh they need you here, dont get banned though,, how boring it must be if all people in the forum has a unified thought, that is just unity in hell..
I'm personally not against forums without rules, but I have a feeling it may cause more bad blood on hubpages in regards to personal attacks.
Warning or not, people of all sensitive or callous sensibilities will join in.
I think it's asking for more problems and may encourage more immaturity because people can say as they please.
It gets pretty juvenile here sometimes anyway.
There are many loosely or unmonitored forums I've been on, full of adults...you'd think it was full of teens. Many can dish it but can't take it...and those hard feelings will seep over into normal forums.
lol...seems like someone's had enough! yes, i do agree that it would be great to voice whatever comes into your mind, but can we really do that here or anywhere in fact?
these forums are just like a mini society in real life.... unfortunately it takes all sorts, and banning people with easily fragile sensitivities is just not possible. so we just watch our words....or risk getting banned ourselves!
waste of precious energy....they'll never change! ....so just let it stew inside till u explode one day, get banned and enjoy a 3 days rest!! not so bad, if u think about it!
As someone who has lost count of the number of times I have been banned I disagree. I enjoy a bit of fun on here but at times I have gone over the top and deserved the bans, personal attacks should lead to a ban. Now adult banter is different as long as it doesn't step over a certain line.
Me, I enjoy the banter but tis a matter of following the rules as well, which can work for you as well, and will
lol...agreed...but what's wrong with 'adult banter stepping over a certain line' now and then?
hmm..now THAT is the kind of ban they should eliminate!
Lol it would never happen, can you imagine everyone being given free reign to say exactly what they wanted to say on the forums, it would be totally explictit language, doncha think
Oh that cute little face hides one wicked lil devil lol !
oh..i just love to imagine a free world...that's all.
Jeeeez a free world would be a disaster, tis why we have television mags, adverts, and big posters telling people what to buy. If it was a free world who would guide these little sheep ?
perhaps they could eat grass, and leave the rest of us alone?
a girl can dream right?
whats up with the 77?
how did you do that?
Ah the tale of the 77, I shall tell ye seeing you asked. I joined Hubs first as BadCompany77 as it is my main name on the net, my websites, other writing sites etc. I decided to use 99 but I missed my 77 because of it's meaning so I deleted 99.
BadCompany is obviously from the rockband and 77 is taken from a really good friend's internet name, her last piece of her internet name ended with 77 so I have always carried it, simple as. Anyways I am off to finish my first hub, laters peeps
Yea but its my freedom too ,to expect some mature conversation too
There is e-mail, IM, and other forums where an uncensored conversation could take place. Hubpages is user/family friendly, and that means the censorship needs to remain in place.
As someone who lurked for several months before signing up, I would like to see it remain clean.
I agree Ivoren , geeze plenty of other chatting networks if ya wanna 'play loose control ' or who can think of the worst personal attack ...
I have a sneakin suspicion too that some who put them hand up for 100% non-censorship ,would be the first to run
(not meaning OP'oster)
hey ek and ivorwen..
Im with ya gals
I dont care for censorship, myself, if something offends, I shut it off
HP isnt always the place for it
there are plenty of other sites to go to.
hey, I'm not asking for anything...i know we need rules and all that...just like to imagine sometimes....being able to voice whatever comes to one's mind....that's all! free in our minds at least...!
So what have I missed? Don't you hate when your day is rudely interrupted by work?
haven't missed anything....we're all steering clear of juicy things now....good clean fun...! yayy!
I better follow suit. It would be just my luck that I would get banned on my own thread
I hate when my day is rudely interuppted by life.
What HAVE you missed?
Thats up to you to decide? I know I missed you....
Thank you! I've missed all of you. I'm a sick man, and this place is my only medicine

Alice in chains
BTW. blood...it didn't take long to break you....! follow suit from now on.... see I knew they'd get ya at the end!!
ok. that does it. BANNED!!!!
(3 days u can't come near this forum!!)
I guess what they say is true, those closest to you will be the ones to take you out.
A 100% uncensored forum is like a country without a government - Somalia full of pirates.
I think it's a great idea. People will actually be accountable to themselves!
yes, like a double check! who needs censorship then?
now if only we could be trusted to keep our word...hmmm.....
hey I am back, yes we are all accountable to our own selves thats why we have our own username....
how do we know if ones idea is wrong, how do we know that ours is correct, ideas are just created by yourselves according to the way we see it, trying to impose ones idea of correctness and how to behave is just being a dictator or ehtnocentric...
we should just respect where everybody is coming from instead of threatening them to be banned etc.....
we cant affod to becoem absolutist, being a relativist is best...
Knowing if your ideas are right or wrong is only one side of the issue. Imposing them on someone else is a childish form of disrespect, in my opinion. But in discussing them with another person who is also an adult, one may make the assumption that they are perfectly capable of responding for themselves, in whatever way they believe to be appropriate.
For myself, I wouldn't ever want to deny someone that option. Whether or not they do so with civility is up for speculation, and separates the men from the boys, so to speak. I would much rather see how people choose to conduct themselves on their own, with no restrictions. You get far more insight into who they are that way.
The rules are about civility. Nothing wrong with that. I'm fine with the way things are.
I agree. I will happily suck up a 3 day ban to call someone a f****** f******** once in a while.
It felt that good...................
See - no rules and it would not have meant anything.
Nicely put. The rub deepens significantly when they are broken. LOL
yes, its a fine art that.....to sharpen your wit (and true feelings) against the steel like edge of rules!
How nicely put.
I'm happy to practice this language with you people.
Censorship is a self practice (among adults) no need for external censors (we've already seen that enough in the past)
Sometimes someone just slides in a disagreable side, but the group has it's own machanics to oystercise the faultive one.
You're absolutely free to laugh at this.
For the record, one of the joys of having rules is to be able to ignore them all together at times. Because I am for certain rules does not ever mean that I am for them in all cases, in all ways. That would never work for me. Hence, I like Mark's approach...
I've been on a forum that had a section people had to have permission to be able to view. The section was pretty much uncensored once you had permission to be there. The forum closed the section after a few months. The owners decided they weren't going to get in trouble for the people who got terribly upset. Apparently the section got pretty nasty and the owners felt there was going to be big issues associated with that. Plus someone got upset and went tot he owner and took it out on them. Not HP responsibility.
I understand that everyone has their own definition of the word uncensored, and I realize that there is a good possibility of things getting out of control, but it's a freedom thing. I'm not looking for a place to freely make personal attacks, but a place that you can freely talk about whatever without having to censor yourself.
and the freedom to be a godamn grownup, shut the fucking computer off if it makes you mad? be responsable for your actions? all that? I personaly have no intent of making personal attacks. but if someone made one against me...brign it!!! I will either defend myself... or...shut off my computer and go eat a sandwich...
Like the car crash you have no interest in, but can't tear yourself away from it.

Just an idea I'm tossing out there. How about HP declaring on Monday a blanket forum amnesty for all forum-banned Hubbers?I'm saying Monday so that HP has the weekend to mull the idea over.I am not suggesting any changes to forum rules. If HP grants the amnesty, and a Hubber turns around and...

How do Hubbers get banned from forums?I've noticed people on Hubpages mentioning that they've been, or are being, banned from the forums. How does this happen? What rules do you have to break to get banned?
by thisisoli 8 years ago
I can't help but notice that after a few bannings of prolific forum participants, the forum participation has dropped dramatically.Gone are the days when I had around 3 pages of Hubbers Hangout topics to peruse, nowadays I just check the main forum page where there seems to be around three threads...

New people are always welcome on this site, but they need to understand that this is not a site like Facebook. HP is a community of writers who have come here to hone their skills and perhaps earn a few dollars.If your only goal is to show up out of the blue, produce nothing, but spend your...

I seldom use the forum because I frequently get treated with a condescending attitude or bashed no matter what I ask or say. For instance, the last time I used the forum, a long-time user decided to argue against my desire for hubscores to reflect the eligibility of hubs for the network sites by...

I would quite like one, but why should I contact the hubpages team if they cannot give me the courtesy of letting me know why.94 hubs in less than 3 months, and for what? To get banned for losing my rag with religious nuts after one told me to kill myself?I'm going to work on my blog and take all...
