Re: Jokes - should anything go?

But that is what the mods are there for, it's part of the job role. There are more than one therefore what one lets through does not mean another one has to.

And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee

Lose the thread? Self censorship arrives in our little haven between the crack of Turkey and Britannia... so goes freedom of speech, humoourous or otherwise...

Yes let the readership lambast the perpetrators, and the Mods can referee...

Re: Jokes - should anything go?

Not sure you can use terms like [email protected]@er then hide behind freedom of speech

Re: Jokes - should anything go?

These days its mostly used by black rappers and they dont find a need to hide behind freedom of speech...

And then there is the language problem.. in English the use of negro is perhaps perceived as just slightly less defamatory then [email protected]@er...

But in other languages it's ' a different story'... so in our multi-lingual world, when conversing across borders and cross tongues, in some languages there is no subsititute for the word negro which is actually a word adapted into English from another language...

Such a messy issue... probably bet to err on the side of caution rather than causation...

Re: Jokes - should anything go?

The idea that some lives matter less than others is the root case of most that is wrong with the world.

Close the PC thread and get rid of the hatred I say.

I’m all for a joke, but blatant racism is simply hurtful, stupid, uncalled for, unwelcome and illegal.

Think what you like about PC etc, but references to "nig-nogs" or "sambo's" like we have seen recently is IMHO nothing to do with not being PC. It is downright, blatant and hurtful racism and in most countries is actually illegal.

Those of us of colour are deeply hurt by this. It is not acceptable to say "there was a warning that you should not read if you are part of the PC brigade" - as I say, this is nothing to do with political correctness!
Leo, I have not seen those words used on here, nor do I want the link.....those names would offend me as well as who they were directed to/at.

Re: Jokes - should anything go?

In addition to what is offensive we also need to consider the legal postion in Turkey. As a mod who lives here I will remove any post which can cause us trouble with the authorities here, I have removed jokes from the non PC thread in the past few weeks for this very reason.
