I second the motion to lock this thread.

Would you please lock this thread, Kathleen?

I found my hippo Crissy hiding under the couch, so I'm fine with locking the door.

Spaceman, I'm glad you found your hippo. I was beginning to get worried.

Maybe she secretly wants us to bump it so new visitors can see the light.

You all realize that if we stop continually posting "lock the thread," the thread will gradually go away all by itself? We're the ones keeping it active. Talk about your irony lol

I'm not claiming that I didn't understand the rules. I'm just saying I don't agree with them. And it's perfectly reasonable for someone to object the rules anywhere, as long as they're keeping it A. Civil, and B. within the context of, "I think this rule is wrong. I would like to express that it is my opinion that this rule should be changed."

Yes, I agreed to abide by the rules. And I did. In fact, the only "profane" word I posted in this workshop was in my 1st 13 for Remnants when my character says "F*** off." But I put a warning at the top, and asterixes in the middle.

My point is, I shouldn't have the right to intentionally offend someone, but I sure as hell want the right to offend someone without meaning to. Do you want me to point out one of the hundreds of examples of offensive material in these forums that weren't even noticed by the powers that be?

OSC criticises Calvanist thought in (I believe) the Speaker for the Dead. So why does he make it a rule in his forums to punish actions instead of intent in something so unregulatable as offensive material?

I take that as permission to delete the post that the workshop software censored then.

Thank you.
