Hi tom.

I think you may have got the wrong end of the stick here slightly.

Basically, I posted the message, but didn't see any response immediately, and didn't catch the return mail to me so I wasn't sure it had posted correctly (yes, I should've checked the archives).

The only reason I could think of for this was the p i s games joke.

i have no problem with either your or Raul's moderating, in fact I learnt a lot of what I do myself when moderating audiogames.net and the entombed list from the pair of you, so I wouldn't really be one to level cryticism unless there was a really good reason.

I have however seen occasions where automated language filters get in the way of things irrispective of moderator's position.

For instance, I only found! the language filters for audiogames.net (which were rather hidden in a subsection of the admin pannel), when I wanted to allow microwave for talking about towers of war which previously was disallowed to discourage spambots (I also allowed quite a bit of other language while I was there).

And I have seem some very silly language filters, for instance in core exiles, I was having fun naming all my mechs things like scrap iron of death, spare parts of doom, and junk heep of terror.

However, the mech I dcalled the wreck from hell was auto deleted by the games' filters, sinse for some odd reason Hell was considdered against the in game naming system's language filters.

Rather nutty if you ask me, I think they may have been programmed by your deviled egg haiting relatives Tom ;D.

Hope this makes things clear.

Btw, a question. If you believe people will go to hell for saying hell, how can you warn them where they're going? ;D.

Beware the grue!

Dark.

Hi Dark,

Um...What language filters? The Audyssey list doesn't use language
filters. We generally incurrage free speach as much as possible. I
frankly don't know where the list gets these roomers, but over the
last few months I've heard plenty of these kinds of roomers.

A couple of weeks ago we  have Michael acting as though Raul and I
read and approve every one of his messages, like the speech police,
even though he isn't even being moderated. Now you bring up the topic
of language filters. Do you mind explaining where these false roomers
come from?

It is a little difficult to keep good relationships between the
moderators and the list with these kinds of false roomers floating
around on list. Contrary to opinions held by some we aren't a couple
of dictators. While we have to keep law and order for the common good
we are also gamers ourselves and like to form good friendly
relationships with the fellow listers out here as much as possible.
All I'm saying is that Raul and I would appreciate not being accused
of moderation/management tactics that are false.

Thanks.

glad you liked it Phil.

Actually I thought the language filter had stopped this message from making
it to the list, glad it got there.

I actually like phlippy games, sound like they make good pinball tables ;D.

Beware the grue!
