....I'm no longer even a teensy bit worried about the religion threads getting deleted.
Because theirishobserver keeps posting innuendo threads all over that lean so far toward the obscene that if his/her threads aren't deemed inappopriate, then there just ain't much that IS inappropriate!
Chalk one up for political correctness, I suppose, but especially AMEN to the Lord who sees all and knows all, 'cause God can even use bad things to highlight the good things.
(Wish I had time to post about a dozen religious threads, but I don't right now....LOL)
Brenda, the reason they're not deleted is because they ARE only innuendo. Taken literally, none of his threads could be regarded as indecent - it's all in the mind.
Religious threads get deleted because people use hateful, racist languages or obscenities - those are unambiguous.
Irishobserver is new and thinks starting new "funny" threads is the way to get his Hubs noticed. He'll calm down eventually.
I'm confused. Now you *support* political correctness???
'Chalk one up for political correctness, I suppose, but especially AMEN to the Lord who sees all and knows all, 'cause God can even use bad things to highlight the good things.'
Can be applied to you as well
If you don't like certain threads, don't read them.
Pointing out is not nice.
And starting religious threads just for the sake of starting a thread is pointless. I don't see any thread that theirishobserver has started that is offensive or obscene. Innuendo serves its purpose... humor.
Double entendre is a perfectly legitimate genre of humour. Without it, the traditional pantomime would not exist.
Besides, only those who have dirty minds are able to understand the joke
I personally have not seen any forum or post that I could not simply navigate away from if I didn't care for the topic
Everyone is entitled to an opinion but I was always taught that if you have nothing nice to say you should say nothing.
So on the issue of this thread Brenda.......................................................................................
Sounds like the usual, "Well - Hitler killed lots of people, so it is OK if Christians did too and therefore we are better," argument to me.
Thanks Brenda - I needed reminding why I despise your ridiculous religion. I appreciate it.
Thanks to you too Mark for saying absolutely nothing and using a lot of words to do it.
Brenda, forgetting the religious overtones for a second, is it your normal practice to thank someone and then follow through with a swift kick to the gonads?
You're saying absolutely nothing as well. now that you're here, why don't you comment on the OP ?
No, I left the comment I wanted, if thats not ok with you then too bad.
I'm not worried! what a word !
I laugh at them!
and don't answer. I can't care less what you think.
LOL I wish I could sit and watch. Will be back with wine in half an hour or so
His threads are only inappropriate in your mind because you have your mind in the gutter.
I beg to differ,
because she has a MIND to interpret the intended( dirty innuendo) AS a dirty innuendo does not mean she was the one with a "dirty" mind. Shouldn't the one who tried to impose the dirty innuendo be the one considered to be the "gutter" mind
if I see a raped girl left on the street ,am I now the rapist because mine eyes did see...
If I hear a criminal plotting ,am I now the criminal because mine ears did hear...
must i pluck out mine eyes, ears , and mind ,for being able to interpret with them ,lest you call me the perpetrator
may I put back in mine eyes or MUST I walk in blindness with the rest of the world so as not to look antisocial ,so I might keep in step with the lewd minded. Some people choose not to be the sheep and be led where they don't want to go.
The fact that she opposed a "dirty" innuendo that someone imposed on a PUBLIC forum is no less than how you oppose her when she imposes a " clean" thought to your concscience.
With that said, I think everyone has used an inuendo here and there but it depends on where you are. I would not expect to find innuendo or trash used in the HELP forum or a Religeon forum but would expect to at hubber hangout or sandpit. Brenda if you see the innuendo in one of those forums there's not much to say in calling them out, but if you intended to spend the day in an area like "help" forums AWAY FROM THE TRASH and still encounter what you think is not right then I could see calling them out or flagging. The fact it goes to the public post for all to see just means you need to skip that post ,if its not what you agree with and don't enter the thread based on the title. I saw the title post the other day and decided to not enter the thread, but if you entered the thread after seeing the title than thats on you for going to a thread that you say you didn't intend to read. on the other hand if a poster misleads with a title and you went there to a thread than that's a different story. However I think everyone knew by the title what the innuendo meant. If the titles post were happy bday brenda and someone posted that way than it could be harrassment and be called out. I think you went to his thread ,though. You need to stay out of their forum posts if you want them to stay out your religeous posts.
Well it is now 11 am in Ireland and I am only now catching up on the late runners last night. It would appear from a thread that I have just discovered that I have been accused by Brenda Durham of innuendo (what ever that is), Brenda I read your Hub soon after I arrived here. I liked your Hub although I did not agree with all that it contains, I think you will find I began to Follow you from that point i.e. Fan, because while I may not agree with all that you say I like your style of writing.
Now I could very easily have come on the Hubpages and pretended to be something that I am not, but I did not I opened up and in your lanuage I gave my personal testimony to all here, I will be following that up today in relation to my abuse of alcohol over many years and how on a night that I simply wanted to die I asked God to get me up, you may well have spoken too soon Brenda.
Anyway, as for the innuendo (whatever that is) I have brought alot of fun and laughter to many people this week and they have returned that favour. The people here have welcomed me and made me feel good. I have no problem with your comments, I live in a big world where small things dont hurt anymore. If your intention was malicious and had the hope of having me removed from Hubpages so be it but I will not condem you, but pray for you. Cyber space is far too big for small people thank the God almighty that you Brenda are not small.
If my intent had been to even try to have you removed, I'd have reported your nasty threads instead of confronting you about 'em.
My intent was two-fold---
to see if you would admit that your thread intentions were to border on the obscene,
And to see how you followed through on that.....whether in a good way or bad way.
I see the first is a "no". And sorry but I don't think you really don't know what innuendo is.
But the second......hard to tell...but you have piqued my interest in reading your hubs. I've seen personally where people close to me have cried out to God in circumstances similar to what you describe, and it's a fearful but awesome thing to both experience, and to watch, the hand of God at work.
If you're not just teasin' me, I'll be reading. I usually try not to discuss at length in the hub comments sections, 'cause I think the discussion forums are the place for anyone to do that...
This rule i have came up with recently,If it's not against ad-network (adsense) then it is not wrong. Sorry this thread is not making any valid point to me. TIO maybe promoting his threads, but these days we have got very less ways left to promote anyway.
Darkside - Irish Observer - I choose this name beacause I like Observing the world around me...thats all nothing fancy
skyfire - This thread makes no sense to me either but I thought I better respond.....I think that some have lost sight of the fact that some people like myself are not techno heads and I love the idea of sharing time with people from all over the world - while Cyber space was promised as the land of free speech and new opportunities it is clear that many want to bring their parochial controls into time and space - we have had enough of that here in Ireland....
Hello Tantrum, it is 12.10pm here in Ireland, hope you are well, last night when I locked up my hens I counted them as usual, or I thought I did, then this morning when I let them out - guess who was missing - yes my rooster (COCK) was out all night.....thank God he is ok this morning......
The problem is that baby Rooster (yes I have more than one Cock) looks identical to Big Rooster and it is dark when I am counting with the torch, so I thought my animals were all in but my Cock had slipped out....but he is ok this morning...I will post a pic of big and small cock when I get a chance.....
Well, I guess if a little cock slips out, it just doesn't get noticed very easily...
thanks for that advise Tantrum....new hub just done on second part of life story.....
hey, Brenda, i knew when i saw that "cock" title he was talking about chickens.
i think it's cute. certainly not offensive. i see some stuff out there that's just nasty, but not his.
thanks for being nice.
The thing is that I DO understand the fun aspects to bawdy jokes and innuendos.....
I have one I keep remembering and it's hilarious.
But I'll never tell it.
Because I'd be accused of several things! ha
But first and foremost I think of that temptation as a test of how far I'm willing to slip "into the world".....each person has to come to terms with their limitations, and testing the waters is a dangerous thing.....
Giving in to each small temptation is a slow fade into darkness....a distraction to keep us from what we're really meant to be and do.
theirishobserver has a story to tell...
a story to live by...
and he's meant for something better than the slow fade.
don't you recognize Feathers McGraw? he is a shady penguin who took up residence in Wallace and Grommet's house. he is a criminal. he wears a rubber glove on his head to disguise himself as a chicken. i thought it was entirely appropriate
hmm you must know something about IrishObserver that we don't. he's not like the chose one is he?
Which would you rather hear?...
Something that simply is what you wanna hear at the time (jokes and reactions to your jokes that seem to make you the life of the party)?
or something that keeps challenging you in your spirit, that spirit that seeks for true Life?
Being ,a close to 40 male, I guess pee-pee and penis jokes don't GET ME GIDDY like everyone else gets. - Go Figure
Im glad you have pointed out what fun theirishobserver is. Recognition for such a good guy should go noticed.
Look, if you dont like the heat, get out of the kitchen! Threads created like this one doesnt give you kudos points. It is very judgemental for someone who advocates religion, like you do, by gunning for someone like theirishobserver. He is a harmless bit of fun!
'those without sin, throw the first stone'... just remember you are supposed to set an example!
If you dont like the crucifixion, dont go crucifying! First do no harm.
*that feels better!*
A little old english and suddenly everyone starts quoting new testament scripture. Hath mine words turned thine heart to the Bible suddenly. "plucking mine eyes from my skull" can not be found in the bible. as far as crucifixion of mine eyes you will see I have willingly done so and asked for permission to put them back in and wait patiently so you can see that I must like the crucifixion of of mine eyes and don't hate that much of it!
(Puts index finger to thumb ,points upwards and says OOHHHM OOOHHHMMMM)
Oh you meant brenda ,never mind because I am in no way Christian and in no way Atheist! I sit in my mountain in my cave contemplating life until I accidentally fall asleep and fall from my perch!
In case anyones interested ,you can find me at KungFu Kastle, Martial Arts Mountain in Ninja Heaven!
You're probably thinking " Surley, you must be kidding"
No, I am not kidding and please don't call me Shirley!
Gnuck Gnuck - HMMMM wise guy EHHHH! Well I oughta..... WOOP WOOP WOOP WOOP!
Puts hand in front of face to block Ohm from poking my eyes out... I mean MOH.... From plucking...... mine eyes out !!! Starting to get an Apatite ...I mean Appetite, Oh what a Corundum this is... I mean Conundrum... Just hope I don't wake with Diamonds in mine eyes!
Picking dead threads to talk to myself in the morning is kinda cool! AHHHHHHHH the SOLITUDE!
AHHHH the weirdness of the morning... Have I not seen daytime in this many months.. this is quite different from the darkness of my cave! I must close mine eyes and releive myself from this light which I have stayed up to see.. Farewell ME! Goodnight Jimmy bob... goodnight Pa... goodnight martha ray.. goodnight jimmy dean.. goodnight suzy lu... goodnight mel22! Goodnight All!
Radio alarm goes off.. " you're listening to Heavy Metal in the Morning.... next up Duality"
He push his fingers into His Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeyes...... its the only thing that slowly stops the Aaaaaaaaaaaaaache...
Jesus it never eeeeends... it works its way insiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide!
If the pain goes on... he's not gonna make it .. AAAAAAHHHHHH!

There are some irritating entities in the forums who seem to get into good threads trying to start pointless arguments with pointless questions or are just plain rude for no reason. I have seen reference to trolls and sock puppets - I think I have got troll but can someone explain it all for...

stop posting as soon as I come on a thread? either that or they just pretend I'm not there! Does this ever happen to you? Am I being shunned or just paranoid? Should I move to Brazil? Seriously . . . and DON'T YELL!

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

HI frienz,should be stopped. I for one am insulted. Opinions are one thing however, contaminating a thread or getting off topic is disgraceful. I for do not appreciate it.. my "Who believes in God" thread is trashed. I do not appreciate it. If you don't believe, don't post. In my opinion....

Greetings one and all!Well, it's early in Iowa and decided to scroll through the forums. I became thoroughly inspired while doing so and thus becomes this thread.What are your perceptions of life's pet peaves as it symbolically relates to fecal matter.Why not? I'll throw my two cents...
