    It was moved because of content in external hyperlinks.

    Well couldnt you have just deleted those posts?
    seems a bit arbitary to remove a fun thread just because of one or two dumb posters.

    A moderator is an arbiter.

    Because of the arbitrary decisions some members make this would have led to more arbitrary moves eventually ending up in arbitration where the decision would be arbitrated on by the moderators (arbiters) of the board resulting in an arbitrary decision to move it.

    It is much easier this way.................

    One, two! One, two! And through and through
    The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
    He left it dead, and with its head
    He went galumphing back.

    Ah My favorite,

    come on guys, If you arbitrate at this rate every fun thread is endangered by morons over which we have no control.
    Its a case of spoiling the pleasure of many for the idiocy of the few

    G'day Astrid,
    You actually do have control............check out "Report a Post",
    or you could apply for a password.

    I can report a post if i saw it but I didn't,
    Have no wish to find out what salicious muck or whatever it was either.
    I just wish to point out that it would have been simpler (but not so much fun)
    If whoever, had simply deleted the offending post.

    it's not an argument, that implies two equal sides.

    The simple fact is a decision was made and it is not going to be changed. End of discussion!
    Have a nice day - Cheers

    Off to the Orange Room with you, Astrid! Just don't read the salacious bits. Of course, you'll have to read them first to know if they are salacious, but then you can just ignore 'em.
    Cheers,

    Bob

    Robbo, the high grand imperial wizard will send you a password if you inquire nicely via PM.

    I've forgotten how to enable cookies, but I'm sure someone will pipe up.
    Cheers,

    Do i really want to go there.
    I've been looking around the forum but cant find any official references to orange room or blue room for that matter.
    Im assuming theres naughty pics and jokes in the blue room, according to the rules these are banned and deleted so why is there a blue or orange room anyway.
    or are some so good they cant be wasted (chuckle here)

    The orange room is the the Open Slather forum, a password protected subforum of Woodies Stuff.

    Been there and found it wanting so I left.

    No naughty pics though the rules are relaxed. You may find offensive material or content that is inappropriate for school or family visitors. It was created in the hope that the material would stay out of the 'family ' forums. That material also does not get picked up by Google spiders and other web bots that can 'rate' a website by what they find. Porn in any forum will earn an instant ban.

    In a nutshell, it probably isn't for you.

    A pity. the thread was kinda interesting. Maybe we could start it again? And this time no boring rude ones. It is way to easy to be funny being rude!! Much more challenging trying not to actually say the words.

    Hi tea lady
    It was pretty funny, maybe if we say pretty please, they'll let us start a new one.

    Nothing to stop you starting another one, just watch the links you put in. Trust me, I do.
