Might as well paste my opinions.
Well, I mean, I know, I've been gone for a long time. Might not have as much insight as the next guy who's been here the whole time, but I'm still feelin' pretty strongly about it. Bleh, bottom line, I don't like the whole inclusion of the Abyss and such, for a few reasons.

Firstly, I mean, sure, it's in another section, that's all fine and dandy, but it's not exactly far. Newcomers, while they might be interested in all the other stuff, boom, one click, gore, pr0n, and gore-pr0n, all up in their face. I don't think it puts a good foot forward for any visitors.

Secondly, a slightly more worrying topic. Well, just say, this doesn't make less people join. Say it makes more people join. Specifically, the kinda people who join a forum for f-ed up ****e like that. Personally, I don't like either prospect. The whole thing seems a little unnecessary. If you want ****, there's forums specifically for it. Other people might not be entirely comfortable with the whole thing on their site, even in another section, and some of 'em have actually told me so, so far.

Okay, not that I don't agree with the sentiment but I've just got to seek clarification on what's meant here because I'm confused by the wording.

Just, okay I'm not sure what's meant here. You say 'on their site', is this people who run websites or members of (lets be honest here) this site?
And if they do have that problem, not that I don't believe you man, but I'd like to see them actually say they have a problem with it.

I'm not just gonna go "yeah [blank] said it," I didn't go around asking, it was just some random stuff said on the IRC about not liking it.

yeah I wasn't asking you to name names it was more of 'okay I believe you but I'd still like to see more people actually voice the opinion before we go and remove something'.

While I usually don't state my opinion, I think it's best I did just this once.

You don't like pron? Too bad. It's in a completely optional part of the form that clearly states what's in it. If you don't like it then don't go but don't bitch about somewhere that's completely optional to go to. This ain't your hug box.
There is probably no more terrible instance of enlightenment than the one in which you discover your father is a man with human flesh.

I'm moving all of the pr0n to the Abyss. Problem solved.

Man, I'm just having trouble getting with everything. Just, what the hell? I feel like I've always tried to compromise without stating many of my own opinions. Censorship on CDDA? Don't care. Moving to a new forum? Sure, why not, I like people who stayed, but I like you guys more. But just, a section, completely devoted to what the members of this community get off to? Argh.

...and....damnit I'm gonna stop my little internal censor and get mad at what you just said unfortunately.

First off: Lorknis, just, argh trying to be civil. Literally my interpretation is 'I don't care about your opinion so I'm not taking it into consideration' so it irks me just...trying to be civil. he has valid points, it does not make us look too good, but hey whatever I've stated I don't care because I don't go there but for christs sake man don't just discard someone's opinion.

Second off: I understand that Forrest and I actually agree with you, however I also realize that it's a sub section that I don't have to participate in. also I think it should kind of be hidden from guests, not as a 'this is something you only get as a member' thing but more a 'yeah we got it but we don't openly advertise it' kind of thing.

Just politely stating my opinion. Not stating names, not pointing fingers, just calling bullshit, is all  ;D

I, too, have a problem with the Abyss being here. I get that you guys really want to keep that whole "freedom to post whatever you want", but with the kind of stuff that's getting posted in the subforum, I'm afraid it's turning newcomers away. I agree with pretty much all of what Forrest is saying on this issue.

I don't know what we should do about the Abyss, but I do feel like it shouldn't be on the front page. It's just... Weird being there. Kind of like an "Utterly Mad After Dark" forum, not the kind of thing you slap onto the front page and call it dandy.

If it is possible, we could hide it below the Players Online thing, to help signify that it's fucked up in every way.
