Demotivational

Extraneous communication, genuflection, adulation, dissection and admiration should make its way in here.

This thread even takes the piss out of Internet childbaiting! How can you censure a joke against religion but not one taking the piss out of a method used by pedophiles?

Please, get your bloody priorities straightened out, and leave us in peace. Unless something is so obviously offencive, or somebody complains about something, leave it be.


I think some clarification is in order, before people start flying off the handle. Well, any more than they are doing already.

Firstly, there was a complaint.

Secondly, as part of the processing of that complaint, there was some discussion between mods about (i) whether the initial post by Xisor could be construed as offensive and (ii) what we should do about it if it could be. The end result was what you see above. You will note that the post has not been removed and that it is relatively easy to see what the post contains. I think that's a reasonable decision to make.

Thirdly, from an entirely personal point of view, I'm a Christian. And, yes, I was uncomfortable with Xisor's post. The complaint did not come from me. The action taken was not initiated or suggested by me, but, obviously, I had an input in the discussion that preceded it and am in full agreement with the action that was taken.

Fourthly, I resent the implication that the mods are somehow pestering users or spoiling their 'fun'. All we're trying to do is remind users of the rules that they signed up to when they joined these boards. I'm well aware that the internet has a reputation for 'say-anything-and-damn-the-consequences', but this place, for a variety of reasons - not least its close ties with BL, is different. Our expectations of courtesy and respect are higher and I think the place is better for it.

Finally, this is the second fairly major intervention that mods have had to make over the last few days. We're only human; we will undoubtedly sometimes get things wrong. We're more than happy to hear any complaints and/or grievances that users may have regarding our conduct. Just PM one of us and we'll be happy to listen and/or explain decisions to you.

Regards,

If this devolves any further, I am going to simply remove the Insanely Off Topic forum. It's becoming too much bother, quite frankly. I put it here in the first place because it was somewhere people could talk about stuff that was non BL or WH related, but if all it's going to do is cause problems, then it's not worth keeping around.

Perhaps this might be the preferable option.

Please get back to posting fun things, but also use your noggins a little bit. If you have something that could be offensive, either link out to it with a disclaimer to that effect, or simply put it behind spoiler tags.

If you're the kind of person who's easily offended or think that there have been offensive things here... then don't read this thread.

Simples.

I think I put this up previously, but here's a little insanity-inducing cutie from beyond the spheres...

Check out my debut fantasy novel from Fox Spirit Books, The Hobgoblin's Herald (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hobgoblins-Herald-R-Aston/dp/1910462047). If you've read it, please rate and review it on amazon; I'd be eternally grateful. The sequel, Eater of Names, is out in 2018, so watch this space.

A bit late nowadays, but still. I utterly adored this the first time I saw it.
