    Like others have said here, SOME of the "fun" topics are irritating to mods as well as some members because 1) they waste precious server memory, 2) arguments tend to errupt in them 3) mods have to read through it all to make sure everything is going ok. It takes a LOT of time to monitor all the posts here.

    There is nothing wrong with having fun in the General Forums but it does at times get out of hand. If someone came to TF and went first to the General Forum, they wouldn't get the right idea about what this forum is all about...which is growing CPs, getting and giving help, and making contacts with the worldwide CP community.

    At the same time, its the sharing and fun that fosters the sense of close community. Its just those topics that end up being 80 pages or more of really short posts that are a pain.

    Pornography is a general topic as well so is dating and many other crap totally irrelevant to this forums existence. WHY DON'T WE HAVE THOSE THINGS IN THERE TOO?

    its right there

    porn and pornography are different here......pornography here is abuse of children getting sexually abused
    Ofenders here spend many, many years in prison if they are caught taking these photos

    In U.S. Porn is short for Pornography (no difference) and Child Porn is exploitation of children. Child Porn is illegal (obviously) but movies and magazines of adults is perfectly legal. Certain laws may apply but whatever........

    My point was just because it is General Topic doesn't mean that anything in general goes because somethings aren't appropriate. Porn and games are very different but they are both totally off-topic. This is just my opinion. I think the Mods have already made their stand on whats appropriate and what can or will be allowed.

    You mean paedophilia Starman.

    I think we've said enough about this and related subjects for now.

    I was talking about child porn....thats called pornography here and porn is adult.....errr porn.

    but still.....porn is unsitable content for young kids and it wouldnt be good for the forum if a 9 year old kid and his mum spotted a topic called "Porn" or something like that with links in it to porn sites.
    but a games topic on the other hand doesnt have any of these porn site links posted in it

    I'm sure your mum wouldn't be happy at you typing 'porn' eight times in a post either!

    Starman, you still miss the point. Re-read the topic.
