    Default Should I make a new Forum Area in Political Arena for Not Safe For Work?

    I've noticed some racial (some would say racist) titles and racially charged posts. Should I create an area for NSFW posts for this kind of thing? Folks can post their racially charged posts and it can still be in the Political area, but it will be listed as "not safe for work" so that folks don't get it showing up in the titles at their work desktop...

    Anyway: Yea or Nay?
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.

    Well, regardless of how this turns out, I made one and I'm going to stick with it for a bit. I can always make it go away.

    I almost suggested that once. As far as I'm concerned the racist crap is as mature rated as pornographic stuff. It definitely has turned a few posters away.

    I don't think threads that have the n*word or other clearly racist terms in the subject line should be allowed anywhere but putting them in a NSFW zone is better than leaving them in main areas where we post.

    N word is not allowed in thread titles regardless. I made that rule because the site tweets out the titles and I don't want to have to try to delete that crap before it goes viral...

    We don't need any more Amazon arseholes like you and Joanie. I thought you were leaving anyway was that just more bullshit?
    .

    80,000 Americans died and 900,000 were hospitalised just two years ago from flu including the most virulent Type A version of H3N2, so why didn't you arseholes call for the total destruction of the world's economic system then? I hope you have plenty of time to ponder over that when you all lose your houses, jobs and relationships!

    If the concern is about the 'reputation' of JPP, then that might be a good idea as far as 'Marketing the Brand' goes.
    Will TDAK, CFM, Guno, TTQ, Vosrock be forced into this Forum by Moderators?

    Put the racial shit in a forum called "Not safe for anyone but haters" section.

    I understand what you’re trying to do, but it won’t work. Racial slurs will still permeate the forum. Now do one for misogynist terms

    I was called a 'Poo Poo Head' once. How can we stop the micro-aggression?
