Are we permitted to post a video if it has "bad language", cursing etc?

Over the past couple of years, Ive been seeing these types of videos posted more frequently.

Although at one time, I think they were against the rules so I wasnt sure.

I think it should be aloud.

For those who don't wish to be exposed to content with "inappropriate" language, there is an easy fix... If on computer, locate modem or router, unplug it.

If on mobile, switch to airplane mode hahaha.

We're all adults here.

Excuse my ignorance, but if it isn't aloud, how would we even know it was inappropriate.

I also think they realized that cursing, good or bad, is so common that its almost become a part of the English language.

And that this is an adult forum.

I'm not sure what the rule is, but if it is allowed, I think it courteous to at least provide a warning in your post about the strong language. Then those who would prefer to pass may do so.

Well if you've been "seeing" these for the past couple of years, maybe that's a clue ?

Thats what I do when I embed comedy bits by George Carlin and others...

***Language Warning*** If you can't take Georges heat, stay out of his kitchen.

True but sometimes I think it varies based on the moderator's discretion.

As a courtesy to all ATS members I believe that anyone posting a video should put out a warning if the video contains any of the following:

Foul language
Nudity (which I don't think is allowed here anyway)
Extreme violence
Flashing lights which may induce seizures

I can't help but think this has something to do with the thread I posted into the jokes and puns forum last night.

It was a star wars/full metal jacket mashup. I added a NSFW warning and an explicit language warning,I would think if someone goes ahead and clicks the video and becomes offended, those are the types of people who smell the milk, know it's foul, yet sip it anyway..

Either way I wouldn't be offended or upset if the thread was 404'd .. it didn't mean that much to me, I just found it funny and wanted to share..



Respectfully,

We do NOT allow vids with profanity in the thumbnail.
We do NOT allow images with visible profanity.

Vids with profanity are usually allowed....but a disclaimer should be provided.
Mods can be alerted if one is not available in the post.

I recall when, polite company within hearing range, that one's need or desire to use strong language was withheld due to how such words would be received by other parties. No more. From my viewpoint in middle America, it seems that the trend to use the multipurpose word of f**k as a necessary word to broaden/limit the speaker's vocab was started off shores as amply demonstrated in UK movies. (Remember when "bloodly" was a bad word in the UK?) After viewing several Australian shows on Netflix recently where that word is more common that the word "the," I wonder if they are the blame for the spread?

Everybody, usually men at war have commonly used the word for hundreds of years, but at some point it crossed the barrier of what was consider politeness to others to being a exaggeration of the speaker's personal (so they evidently think. And the specicaliness of oneself to speak as one wishes has not been withheld from the females.

It is a tiny, little ego of trip that has infected the world. Part of the "I " generation. However, it should be banned by the PC crowd because not everybody appreciates the word or is entirely capable of utilizing it in both terms and actions in their lives. So, therefore, it is extremely sexist to the max and downright discriminatory to many ears that it needlessly falls upon.

Being an old-fashioned gent but yet with normal abilities of mind and body, I find the indiscriminate use of the word in benign conversations both in person and in media by writers as a reflection upon that person's whole being and they lose marks for respect from me. Something is terrible wrong with culture and society when people feel they can use the word in any form that they wish and yet complain bitterly about far less loaded words. Think about it.

As long as you give a early warning it shouldn't be a problem.

Also any link to gore or adult content will likely be removed.


15a) Offensive Content: You will not Post forum posts, private messages, PODcasts, blog entries, videos, images, and other supported content, links to images or use avatars and/or signatures that are unlawful, harassing, libelous, privacy invading, abusive, threatening, harmful, hateful, vulgar, obscene, and/or disruptive. You will not use text, images, avatars or link to images or domains that contain gore, mutilation, pornography or illegal content. Doing so will result in removal of your Post(s) and immediate termination of your account.

15b.) Profanity: You will not use profanity in our forums on the Websites, and will neither Post with language or content that is obscene, sexually oriented, or sexually suggestive nor link to sites that contain such content. You will also not use common alternative spellings or net-speak alternative for profane words.


Mainly it's common sense and thinking before linking.

It is always best to have an alert if the content might offend and not doing that can get them removed.
