Re: dirty jokes on the open


Narda and everyone,
    No, certainly not. I do enjoy some of the off-topic posts, depending on
what they are....but if you are going to allow off-topic posts then there
needs to be some sort of guide that states what is allowed and what is
not.....
    Occasionally talking about trees, hosta companion plants, or something
not even related to hostas should certainly be allowed, but if kids are
going to read the open (and there is nothing to stop them from subscribing),
then no, there should be no smut allowed. Period.
    In the past it has been a free for all - post anything that you like -
environment. Bob was all for that environment. Now he (his kids) are
affected by the off topic posts and it seems that now it isn't okay. (Bob,
do you own this open?, if so, you can make the rules) If not, the owners
need to come forward and state what is allowed and what is not. If that
doesn't happen, it is up to Bob to police his computer, and what his kids
see on his computer, so his kids can't read what is posted on the open. No
different than not allowing his kids access to porn on the web. What kids
are allowed to see, or not see, is up to the parents. The parents control
the computer. They are the adults in the house......if dirty jokes continue
to be posted, Bob needs to prevent his kids from reading the open.

<< Either all or
 none. What is it going to be???????? >>

Mike, are you saying all porno or not all?  N.
