  Are we censored ?  LOL  I can't type out the on line betting service by  the name of . ..... !!! How come??? I can print out 5 diimes or 6 diimes but I cant type out the Costa Rican service named ......

  How come? did we have a meeting ? LOL  It is funny because i sent a PM to someone and it made me seem like a nutt ...because the subject was censored out but it wasn't really apparent to the reader. It just looked ...... well ... nonsensical    In a PM ?.... that is a suprise

 

 

The only real failure .....is the failure to try.                               

                              Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much. 

                              Odds never change .....but probability does.

    I think Todd got tired of the free advertising and he must have ommited it as a keyword

      i guess it makes sense, probably would make more sense to delete advertising posts than to censor the actual word though.

      I believe life is about finding someone you cant live without

      And showing them how much you care every day of every month of every year

        I think this is the ONLY way it can be done without Todd having to read EVERY SINGLE POST to make certain that free advertising is not occurring.  It seems funny to some, but it makes sense when one thinks of other alternatives to monitoring the forum.  I can't blame Todd for this because I'm CERTAIN that it cost a pretty penny to keep this site up and running with him not charging a REQUIRED membership fee on the sort.  The other site is making LOT'S of money from LP Members already... :-)

                Thanks to those who defend this site and its policies. Those who don't need to take a lesson as to why Lottery Post is still around, and other sites aren't. I find it amusing when I have to go back to the well and answer these questions all over again, but that's the life of a forum webmaster.



                Sandy: the same text engine is used in all areas of this web site, including the private message feature. It is a function of code reuse, so that I don't have to rewrite the text input engine each time I want to add input to another section of the web site. I do not deserve "shame", and I would have thought you would at least write me a PM about something before publically stating something extreme like that.



                Besides, I would not allow the private message feature to be exploited by spammers, which hopefully you realize is for your benefit as much as mine.



                Long-term members here should be trying to make my job easier by supporting me and the policies that this web site was founded upon five years ago. Many, many thanks to those who do this -- I WILL NOT FORGET your help, because time is something I have very little of these days.

                  I cannot thank you enough for that feature... Lord knows we don't need the mail box over flowing like our emails are.. You do a fantastic job.  I really like using this site as a place to rest at end of day..

                    Todd, I really didn't think I said anything that disparaging..........I probably should of sent you a PM about it......I am sorry for that............we all do stupid things, and that was one of mine.

                    But I really feel strongly about the Privacy thing......"Private" means private. If your telling me a topic is censored, I agree with that........if you tell me the content is censored, I disagree............

                    If you notice, I always tell people, "what happens in PM, stays in PM"....(like the Vegas thing)...........I do have the "block" feature in the PM....which says I would probably only get one spam PM before I blocked it.  And when I get a spam email, I always PM you about it......

                    You run an awesome site.....no doubt about it.........and I do appreciate your time and effort..........but I do value my privacy.....but you are the one in control here, and you can pretty much do what you want and I respect that..........I will follow the rules.

                      Sandy,

                      My text editor has an automated "smut filter", so after you post a message anywhere, before it is saved to the database, the filter removes or changes a small list of words.  (Mainly stuff like the f-word, s-word, etc.)  I guess purists could consider that "censorship", since it does in fact censor a handful of words.  However, because it is an automated computer program, and not some person going through messages and hand-picking words to delete, I do not consider it censorship in any shape or form.  It is a necessary (and I think awesome) little "helper" program for me, to make sure the rules are followed.

                      It does not censor content, it looks for a small list of words.  And like I said, the same program is used everywhere, so that I don't have to waste time rewriting code all over the place.  One of the side effects is that those same list of words will also be filtered on PMs.

                      Hopefully that clears up the topic of mentioning a certain commercial web site here, and let's get back to the business at hand...

                              If you want to start a web site that caters to foul-mouthed people, then be my guest.  If you're going to post messages in my web site, you'll have to live by my rules.  Most adults understand this principle just fine, but you apparently think you should be able to set the rules wherever you go.

                              If you refer to the filtering of the f-word as an "evil", then I have no help to offer you, and you are beyond the point of reasoning with.

                              I really don't need the headache of continuing this discussion, and everyone else "gets it", so please just either live by the rules or don't post anymore.  Thanks.
