Trust me, I'm not gay, and I don't find it offensive to myself or anyone I know, but if someone else does, you could really get into trouble.

Gay people choose to be that way, and they know it requires a thick skin. Last time I checked, black people didn't choose to be black (some of them chose to be white.. along with some wack nosejobs and other 'mods').

You've got a bit of responsibility to make judgement calls now, and you can do whatever you think is best, but remember who makes up the forum, and remember that a lot of us have been here quite a while and a new mod enforcing terminology restrictions based on personal interest and not precedent and forum rules will not go over well.

By the way, "get into trouble" is a very harsh way of putting it. If someone complains to you, you warn the person who said the thing, but don't do much more than that until you know if they're going to malicously keep doing what was complained about.

It is not based on personal interest, because it does not concern me. I'm just asking to just use caution with the word and how you use it. If I recall correctly, Expat said the same thing a while ago...

It is also under Respectfulness: We expect our member to show respect for others. Respecting their person, their views, their time and their opinions, and their belief systems ... even if you disagree with them.

EDIT: New Dharma: Thank you for the congratulations as well. I always heard that first was the worst, and second was the best.

His angle was the sponsors, which is legitimate, but it's the BMX section and everyone knows the age group who posts in here, so they aren't expecting businesslike and mature posts. This is still probably one of the 'cleaner' BMX forums around though, even with the occasional term like that thrown around.

I guess that's just one of the many calls you have to make, I still say it doesn't convey any disrespect.

They would still dislike to see derrogatory responses and such. Even though the BMX section is decently clean, there is always room for improvement. I hate to seem like a really strict enforcer, but it could really cause some trouble that you don't want to be in, and I don't want to be held responsible for it. I don't know how you wouldn't see how that would show disrespect. All I'm asking is for people to lighten up on it- that's all.

Eightdip: Thank you, just try to have some faith in me. I will try to be as fair as I can to everyone.
Expat: Grazie.
Kinetik: Thank you as well, and I don't have to be nice. I still have to rule with an iron leg if anyone really steps out of line. I just can't flame so much or pick on the noobs.
Tmowery: There is no crying in BMX.

You forgot the first half of your tags, which makes it mean absolutely nothing.

You have to wrap all of your text in the tags. For example...

[sarcasm] I hate Mude [/sarcasm]

Actually, you have to be nice, and firm. I have 4 teenagers, so I get plenty of practice. But if anyone disrespects you, they'll have to answer to me.

get it?





anyways, waht i was origionally gonna say.....

gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay gay



now that thats out of the way...
whats the big deal with all this debate about gay people. whether or not they choose, its who they are. deal with it. they know what comes with the territory and it sucks, but thats the way life is.
the trick is knowing when to shrug it off, or when its gone to far. and typing the word gay on an online forum in a non-derrogatory way is not to far. the only thing bad about it is it makes it sound like being gay is bad, and if thats what you take it to mean, then your too dumb to be posting on here.

i think that made sense.
