    Message boards

    Do you know where I can find an off topic message board preferably with some female members? It should be a place with as little moderation as possible (personally I would prefer no moderators at all).

    The reason I'm asking is because I keep getting banned from different forums just because I'm very open-minded - I need another place. If you know about a forum which allows discussions about everything, then please let me know.

    I just don't want to be limited by rules and laws created by someone with personal 'random' definitions, it's so boring.

    Hmm...let me get this straight.......you want a board where you and other likeminded trolls can go and be total #ssholes without moderation.......and while you are there you want to hopefully chat up some women.

    Is it me ......or does anyone else here find this utterly hillarious?

    You're just jealous.

    Not really, but I think you should at least be allowed to say "**** you", or be able to talk about something negative without having some moderator closing the thread. And why the **** does it appear as stars? In other words, I'm tired of spending my time on forums made for weak people and designed for children, but there seems to be no alternatives! I'm tired of not even be allowed to say what I want. Most discussions here are totally pointless, like "poll: what's your favourite this or that?" or "who has the coolest avatar?" blablabla.. In a forum 'without' rules those weak members are removed automatically (they leave). They would still be able to post though if they wanted, it's so pathetic to use banning etc. just because otherwise the person can't win mentally.

    People are so primitive. It's year 2001 and I still can't say what I want just because it sometimes happens to be a little negative. People still have the need to 'hide' things they think are scary. Even if I don't include one single personal attack in my threads, they are often closed by some closed-minded moderator anyway.

    And I know it works without them, because I've been at a forum without moderators. And it often got pretty interesting (and that's not just in my opinion), and the forum gets a lot more energy. Intelligent discussions comes forth more often, as I said: it just gets more interesting when people are also allowed to talk about something 'extreme' if they want to.

    But the entire world is so ****ing closed minded and scared.

    LOL... trust me, never, NEVER-EVER date female members of discussion boards you cannot see in person any time you want... just a little hint *g*

    As far as I know there is no board without moderation... there will always be the webmaster. If he is sane, he will employ moderators. But you might try doing a google search. But honestly, would you enjoy a board of flaming loosers that can't behave on other boards ?

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Oh, but you can. We have the freedom of speech. It's just that this is a private place and we don't have to accept it. If I stood in your room chanting christmas carols you would have me removed as well, wouldn't you ?

    Why do you think I asked? I can't find any alternatives. This place among others are better than nothing.

    I don't care about "the freedom of speech" because the fact is: I'm not free to say what I want 'anywhere' in this society. No matter if it's private or not - this is generally the truth.

    So basically you are asking for an XXX chatroom? Yahoo probably has lots of those...

    Fordy:

    I don't need that sort of advice. It's 'obvious' that a search on google is: unsuccessful. But they 'do' exist. Of course, I never really thought you people could help me find one.

    DavidP:

    No, I'm not looking for a chat-room.

    Because I wasn't sure.

    It's really hard to get something into your head.

    If you want your own perfect board, where you can moderate and rule in your own special way, then write your own (or install a pre-rolled one) on your own web site.

    I agree. But the fact of the matter is that these forums are open to all people and the purpose of moderation is to make sure that most people will find this an acceptable and pleasant place to learn.

    It's year 2001 and I still can't say what I want just because it sometimes happens to be a little negative. People still have the need to 'hide' things they think are scary. Even if I don't include one single personal attack in my threads, they are often closed by some closed-minded moderator anyway.
    Series; Though i tire of your defeatist attitude you do have a tendancy to say some things that i dont see anyone else having the guts to say. Quite honestly i think that you have some redeaming traits. This being one of them.

    I have never (that i can recall) closed or deleted a post that didn't either have offensive language or containing personal attacks. I enjoy seeing alternate views. I dont always agree with them but thats irrelevant. I've never on any occasion deleted anything i found personally offensive. My personal feelings or opinions aren't relevant to the moderation of this forum.
