I have no insight on the motivation of the mods as I posted my position publicly, but warnings in a thread title don't grant immunity to the content. To me this isn't about being offended, it's about being associated with some of the racist shit that was posted in there.

While I don't disagree entirely, for the sake of conversation I will just put this pit there. These are jokes playin on common stereotypes. As someone who understands that, I find these jokes comical in the sense that it makes fun of people who hold these stereotypes.Fwiw, the most complained about joke in that thread was about Jewish noses. The first ten times or so I heard that joke it was told to me by Jewish friends.

I'm not a racist, far from it. I have black friends, hispanic friends, Asian friends, Hell even gay and lesbian friends... If it's funny it's funny, period. It really makes me laugh how many people here act so holier than thou but still laugh out of the other side of their face. 

 

Like Rodney Carrington once said, there's always ONE fat bitch in the crowd that just wants to #### it up for everyone...

I certainly don't agree with just disappearing a thread, as opposed to locking it, but the whole point of the thread was to provoke a response, sort of the basic definition of trollage.  And, while I disagree with the idea of simply disappearing threads,  kudos to the mods for rousing themselves.

Trolling? Who the #### was trolling?Fwiw I would have certainly thought the most offensive jokes would have been the dead baby jokes.

Many of those were well past off-color and into offensive.  Remember that we're trying to maintain a reasonably welcoming atmosphere here.

So, Frank posting chick pics is ok because why? I mean there is a NSFW tag in the title which there was in the joke thread as well. If you dont like it dont view it. Simple as that...

Read the code of conduct. That sets out what is okay here and what isn't. If you don't like it find another forum where you can post what you want. Simple as that...

 

I'm not a racist, far from it. I have black friends, hispanic friends, Asian friends, Hell even gay and lesbian friends... If it's funny it's funny, period. It really makes me laugh how many people here act so holier than thou but still laugh out of the other side of their face. 

You can't be a racist because some of your best friends are black. If you want to talk about cliches and stereotypes...

 

Just because a joke is offensive doesn't mean it's not funny; that's true. But just because a joke is funny (and many of those weren't) doesn't mean it's okay to tell, either. And certainly not that it's okay to tell here.

That might have been a temporary step until they sorted it out.

Ok, so if some kid was searching for hot chicks on google and found our site then it's ok... I gotcha

 

I thought we were all adults here and able to make our own decisions on what to view or what not to view... I guess thats more of the holier than thou coming out... Hypocrites...

When females orgasm they make you a sandwich.Side track here.....My wife likes shoveling snow. It hurts my back though. We divide up household duties as we see fit. Some neighbor of one feltThe need to tell my wife that it's not her job to do the shoveling. Go get me to do it. #### him hard. I suppose he would have her barefoot and preggers in the kitchen

I get that but the rules seem to be really slanted at times and vary from day to day... 

 

So, I guess from here on in I'll be within the guidlines that whenever someone makes an Irish Joke to report it... Because I'm all of a sudden butt hurt over those to... Ya know, even though I'm of Irish decent and the jokes are based on stereotype but still funny thats what I should do, right?
