    If you're gonna break C-Dog's heart, at least let 'im down easy, man... he's human too. At least according to his medical records. No, I didn't believe it myself.

    Cheers!

        Right! 11,246th time is the charm.

        THIS time there is absolutely NO WAY someone is going to derail this thread into a fight yet again.

        You just watch.

        Cheers!

              Rules

              Writing rules about what is essentially meant to be a bit of fun pastime is so not in my nature(I don’t think it was in Sarge’s either), but I guess someone has to and better us than the kind of person that likes doing it.


              A) Personal Information


              No posting of other people’s personal information without permission, names addresses etc. I think it’s self evident that people should be allowed to post here anonymously.

              B) The Spit Roast Rule


              No posting of photographs of other people that they haven’t put on this site themselves. If they subsequently ask for their original picture to be removed we will do that and remove any use you have made of it.

              To clarify this rule, if for example you post a picture of your maiden aunt’s 90th birthday party here and someone photoshops her being spit roasted by a shaking Gary Busey and Oprah wearing a strap-on and posts it in the Dump forum we will not touch it. That is totally fine. If you ask for your original picture of the party to be removed we will do that and remove the spit roast picture. BUT if someone finds your Facebook page, lifts the picture from there and does the same photoshop we will delete it and ban them. I would take from this rule that it’s probably not a great idea to post pictures of your maiden aunt here but maybe you don’t like her? Or maybe you like her too much.

              We’re going to call this new rule the ’Spit Roast Rule’ for shorthand.

              C) PENISES!

              There has from the start been a ban on posting any male LOVEAPPARATUS™®© at this site. In the past ladies or at least girls have complained about the obvious, blatant misogyny and hypocrisy of this rule.

              This rule has to remain for posts in moderated forums because without it things quickly go to shit. Without it you end up with penis avatars and hardcore porn everywhere which will trigger Websense™®© type software and stop all the people who come to the site as an all too brief relief from tiresome office jobs.

              If you have to come here to find proper porn on the internet then I’m afraid you are too dumb to post here.

              D) Personal Threats


              No ‘credible’ personal threats. Credible is the key word here. If you want us to go to the police, try and make yourself credible.


              E) Don’t be a total dick!


              Having a small team and the owner around more means in technical terms we can be more common law rules rather than a codified system. Guitar Shark knows what I mean... in plain English because we won’t need to second guess what was meant by a rule made by someone who can’t be there we can be more flexible and reactive. If you invent a new way of being a total dick don’t expect to get off on the technicality of it not being covered by the above.

              In the last week I've read posts where people said that at the DDLR site we didn't censor as much as was traditionally done here. That's entirely untrue, but we did it more but with attitude and in an amusing way.


              Banning


              This is also going to really annoy some of you but this is a clean slate. We will be unbanning genuine posters. That of course doesn’t in any way make them immune from being banned again in 20 minutes time. This is an amnesty, a time for peace and reconciliation. Before you get too annoyed at past crimes remember these were just words on a forum on the internet, nobody died. I’m sorry but this is the nature of what this site was originally about. It was and is going to be a little more ‘robust’ than many forums online – heat and kitchen. I received a life ban from my football teams Forum a few years back because I was flicking between it and here and replied to a post there as I would here…

              Banning is going to be a last resort, just don’t be a total dick. We will be using temporary bans rather than permanent unless you are persistently just ruining the site. We don’t think it’s equitable to stick lifetime bans on people because they do something dumb one night rather than kicking their cat.

              That said this should not be seen as a new soft limp wristed approach, just more flexible. We won’t hesitate to use cruel and unusual punishment.

              Cheers and have fun!


              I've had to ban 2 people today.

              For the good of the site I'm going to be applying the E) Don’t be a total dick! rule more vigorously, you know who you are so fair warning...

                The underlying flaw in that thinking is that most of these pecker-brains do not realize they are being pecker-brains in the first place. It is more or less like scolding a non-attentive child. Everything gets all rosy and pleasant for about 3-6 days, and the little worm of of poor behavior comes back again.

                Hey, perhaps it is an attention deficit or whatever, who gives a flying fuck? The social disorders these nincompoops are dealing with (or obviously not) are NOT our problem. Get rid of them and let 'em rot by the roadside.

                Does that sound harsh, coming from me, the Bringer Of Peace? Tough shit, Sherlock. I'm sick of PMs from great folks fed up with this charade.

                To put this into language that most all CVH fans can ascertain, I give you the immortal words of a profound and veritable prophet:

                Jeff Spicoli: What Jefferson was saying was, Hey! You know, we left this England place 'cause it was bogus; so if we don't get some cool rules ourselves - pronto - we'll just be bogus too! Get it?

                  I realise I'm going to get some 'I told you so' shit about this but it's really only a few people that are being assholes.

                  As I said I'm not going to sit here and try and draft a legal document of rules that people can then try and get around on a technicality.

                  This may sound gay but the thing I'm getting really fucking sick of is the hateful shit.

                  If you are deeply unhappy in your life don't bring it here. There is a huge difference between having an argument online about music or politics or whatever and spending hours trying to upset people in the real world. If you want to do that then go somewhere else. I've had enough of the non specific flaming, it's killing discussion, chat and fun.

                    The bar remains as high as we can have it without this place becoming a misery.
