I used to mod the ebaums chat when it was on Userplane. Things were pretty crazy back then. Now I can't even make a few off the cuff, yet PG rated, comments without getting "banned" for somewhere in the ballpark of 24 hrs. Some of the on topic comments are offensive, vulgar, juvenile and also funny.
You really need to find a balance if you want to maintain a click stream here. Let people have fun. That's what this site has always been about. I've never hopped on ebaums to be in a safe place. I come here to get weirded out, have a good laugh, and escape from this ridiculously politically correct world. Now here isn't even safe and I refuse to walk on eggshells because while I may go off the reservation on a few comments, non of them are personal, meant to dig at anyone or would be considered any more offensive than most of the material in here.
I'll always come here for the laughs but what a mod has done to me really left me sour.
