The one thing here though is everybody signs for saying they have read and understood the rules.


i will forgive you for being new around here and not realising the rules have changed many times in the history of TMF

we might of all signed to say we under stand the rules but the likes of me signed up to different rules to you, a new member will also signed up to different set of rules to you

in the olden days when the forum was black and white, the guide was if it was ok for the simpsons (shown at 6pm) then it was ok for TMF

since then the rules have got bigger, is it worth a resigning when rules do changes so there is no excuse not to know them ?


To be fair the Simpsons rule is still an excellent guideline, we have relaxed the swear filter to allow some more words through, although these word are also useful when describing a problem as well.

So what you are saying in your statement is that the rules have changed over the years so even though they are available to read its ok to flaunt them??

And i may be new compared to you in this forum Bungle but i am doing a job that you once did so you should know why we have rules and why they should be followed. We can be lapse on them as we all do from time to time but when you push your luck then there will be a consequence.

i know we can read them but you said we all signed up to them , we might have but not the current ones unless your a new member

My suggestion was we sign up to the new rules , why the aggressive reply ? Yes once i was a area rep but not a full staff member, does that make a difference to me making suggestions ?

Though, I wouldn't want TMF to be like Apple and ask me to sign a new contract every time they update something.

To be fair the Simpsons rule is still an excellent guideline, we have relaxed the swear filter to allow some more words through, although these word are also useful when describing a problem as well.


Here's some interesting points with how TV broadcasters censor things, in America anyway. For example, you can say dildo 3 times in one episode but on the 4th it would be bleeped. You can also say ******* in reference to its actual meaning, as Bart did when he said...

Bart: Me and Santa's Little Helper used to be a team. But he never wants to play anymore since his ******* moved in.
Marge: Bart! Don't ever say that word again!
Bart: Well that's what she is. I looked it up.
Marge: Well I'm going to write the dictionary people and have that checked..


And the fact that ******* is bleeped and horsecrap is not is offensive to bulls.

I have to work out if the 'like' to 'warning' ratio is worth it when posting something ridiculous in a serious area now


Well if that's why you're doing it I'll just remove all your likes next time instead of a warning.

I'm sorry if that came across aggressive as it was not meant to but your start to your post sounded a tad belittling. I agree the rules will have changed over the time TMF has started but we all have access to the rules so surely if somebody is not sure of something before they post a possible contentious statement then it takes a moment to have a quick read.

I know we shouldn't need to do that and most of us do not need to, however seeing some of the comment recently posted on various threads throughout the forum doing just that could have saved a lot of grief.

Neil is one of the best moderators TMF has seen for a while, hes always been fair and generally an all round decent bloke...


Really? my experiance is that he is a hippacrete happy to break the rules and make a personal attack or a heavy handed "ban" in the name of the so called rules, one of the worst "staff" on TMF imo.

Even Before being 'added' as a mod I would of said the same....fair and decent.

Getting a bit sick of the TMF bashing lately.... at the end of the day no one is forced to come on here so the endless jibes and insults seem pointless

Do you know who Neil is? I don't recall him banning anyone.

Tmf forum feedback section is a good idea hands down, yet its not working how it was intended for whatever reson (members being picky ?).
Im just saying here but i think forum feedback or related subjects should be done through PM to tmf staff & admins only, not be open & subject to all opinions of each member on here as there always going to be a argument.
