Apologize if this has been addressed and I missed it, but is #5 still enforced? Seems a good amount of NSFW content goes entirely unmoderated. (Not stating that this is good or bad, just asking)

It is if I see it.  Where are you finding this NSFW content at?

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

This is a rather poignant example. (Direct NSFW)
Also things such as this, this, and this. (Indirect NSFW/Advertising NSFW Projects)

I personally didn't care about the first one since it said NSFW in the topic title. 

As for the others, I don't see anything wrong with those.

I'm not asking for moderation, I'm asking for policy clarification.

Yes it is still enforced, but those last three wouldn't fall under that rule. That rule is primarily meant for hotlinking NSFW images. Text wouldn't generally be considered NSFW.

Yes, I don't care about links, but embedded NSFW sucks if I browse at work. I had reported that first one, but nothing had happened on it until now.

Alright, thanks for the clarification, that answers my question.

I removed the embedded image after someone reported it -- maybe you. Embedded NSFW images are definitely not allowed. NSFW links are OK if they are clearly marked as such.

+1

EDIT:  Wait, does +1 count as a zero-value post?   Huh

Depends on context Wink Perhaps we can get a good post / bad post mod up and running to do the job.

Good idea.  I do the +1 from time to time, but would be much better to have a like or dislike button.  I'm sure the +1 annoys some.

The other annoying posts are sub and watching, those also should be considered zero value posts.  I'm sure some will disagree, but who really gives a shit if your subscribing to the thread or watching the thread.

hagnah! Lets moderator-delete all those zero-value posts of +1/like/watching/sub that only serve to overcome the short-comings of the forum software rather than to fix them.

"Subbing" threads is the only way to add it to the watchlist and be notified of new replies. This one. Notify is useless as it just sends you emails. Just people making the best they can of shortcomings in the forum.

I thought people were just posting that they subscribed using the notify button.  But now I get it.  Thanks for the explanation.

Hi! I wonder is there any moderation rule about moving stuff out of "Bitcoin Discussion"? I know it is very tempting to use it and not care about the sub forums and I think new projects deserve the publicity and come here but I wonder if it would make sense to aggressively try to move threads out of there when they are a week or two old? I'm referring to project specific stuff like:

[ANNOUNCE] TORwallet - anonymous mixing wallet service (12-06-13)
[Payout Updates] Bitcoinica site is taken offline for security investigation (12-05-28)
BITCOIN MAGAZINE ARRIVED! (12-05-24)
and many more that get bumped up for weeks and months and that I'm just tired of seeing as following them got far too off track, repetitive or plain pointless.

It's not a bad idea at the core, I wouldn't have a problem enforcing it, I just don't think it's a big enough problem to solve. I did something similar for existing services/businesses that liked to post announcements, leave them for a few days then move.

I'm pretty happy with Bitcoin Discussion in general, and most others are I think. There's a few threads that are annoying but overall it works out well. If announcements are constantly being brought back to the first page it just means people are interested in it, or it generates lots of discussion, which isn't a bad thing. If the replies are taking the thread off track, that's a separate issue and isn't solved by just moving the thread, and a thread shouldn't be moved just because of the replies.

The Bitcoinica thread, I leave because it's fairly big news, and relevant to a large percentage of readers. For stuff like that I'll usually leave one main thread, and move the rest to the proper forum.

What makes moderators moderators then globalmods. and then administrators ?
do they need reason for their decisions ? are they scrutinable by newbies?
Thanks

1. Free speech
5. No NSFW content

Please read 5, then read 1, then read 5, then read 1 and tell me if you see a problem.

Can I say "fat cock" if I present it in a calm and polite manner?


Think of it like this, you have freedom of speech in the presence of your mother, but would you choose your words more carefully?  

Not all moms were created equal. In this era there is a growing number of parents whom strongly in free-thinking and such. Some cultures it's shameful to show one's hair or face, etc...

Sorry, I live with an anthropological scholar whom, among other things has formally studied some of the finer points of taboo and sexuality (across national boarders even)

"no porn / nothing NSFW" is a fine restriction to free speech. Can be likened to restrictions on hate speech, etc.

Edited to add:

A step in a wrong direction. Now moderators will decide which posts have "low value", which posts are "uninteresting" or "pointless". In practice moderators will delete everything they don't like. The words "free speech" above are thus an obvious lie.

That, however, is a fear I share. Subjective things which are not perceived universally by all individuals.

Final edit /// So uh... I've caught up on this whole thread now:

where does current policy stand anyway?

Main thing I ever see enforced is a loose concept of "scammer" with tags being applied to various users for various reasons which don't seem to be well documented in a conspicuous way / nowhere I've seen in forums explains the exact definition of scammer (comprehensively or otherwise)

I'm glad you don't see moderation. I hate it when moderation is intrusive on forums.
