un-PG in forums, 150k

i would like to say that i strongly believe that the UNPG word SHOULD BE PG... as a matter of fact... it is actually stupid that it is considered UNPG at all

i have to say i did send meesage to slayer to edit it for me

lostling has a point; you can use the word on normal television.

Sickone November 5 2008 8:37 AM EST

So what is the "acceptable" form for that part of the human anatomy we usually use to sit on then ?
And why is that particular form considered non-PG but the other one is considered PG ?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] November 5 2008 8:59 AM EST

Bum? Behind? Rear?

Bottom.

Keister! Kaboose! Posterior! Boootay!

Sickone November 5 2008 10:12 AM EST

So then *WHAT EXACTLY* is wrong, dirty or bad with the one that starts with an a and spells the same as an animal of burden or the other one that starts with a b and has a lot more meanings than just describing that part of the human anatomy ?

Come in RPG Room Thursday/Sunday for a great example of why we have the PG rule, and why it is as it is.

Just please don't talk while you're in there. Thanks :)

lostling November 5 2008 10:19 AM EST

nobody is talking about the PG rule... im just thinking its absurd that we cant say that word

QBOddBird November 5 2008 10:20 AM EST

A word which falls under the PG rule, and my current offer still stands.

Phrede November 5 2008 10:23 AM EST

I am riding one at the moment - do I have to call it a bottom ?

lostling November 5 2008 10:27 AM EST

the argument being why is it under the PG rule... i am not even disputing the PG rule

All this talk about random tookus is making me nauseous

QBOddBird November 5 2008 10:34 AM EST

It's a simple "because they're under the PG rule as defined by CB."

The "PG" standard for television, movies, etc. varies from show to show, so don't bring that nonsense about "they can say it on TV." If we go by the TV/movie standard, we can show breasts on CB.



A better question is, why is your vocabulary so very limited without the use of this word? Is it _really_ that difficult to manage without it? And if not, then what's all the hubbub over?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] November 5 2008 10:34 AM EST

Interesting question Sick. If a word has no other meaning than a vulgar one assossiated with it, then it's easy to classify as un PG. Apart from that, isn't it all down to context?

Paperwieght is a harmless word in itself, but I could use it to insult someone. Would it then break the PG policy?

How about Bastard? An un PG word, possibly. One definetly not usable before the T.V. watershed. Even though it also refers to children born out of wedlock, and CB uses the word commonly as a Melee Weapon.

Asking in the forums about a Bastard Sword shouldn't get me fined, that would be a tad hypocritical of the game. But calling someone or something a Bastard should.

Maybe this should be taken to a new off topic post, as I fear we're starting to cluter the PR thead with this. ;)

HotBoddBird: It's a simple "because they're under the PG rule as defined by CB."

That argument is circular. Why is the sky blue? Because it is a blue sky. There's a problem there...

Obscurans November 5 2008 1:22 PM EST

That's not really circular though solare. The sky is blue because red light from the sun gets refracted off larger angles. Far from direct irradiation there is not enough visible light to see. And it's called "blue" because we have a photoreceptor that responds to the high end of the visible spectrum.

:P

Solare November 5 2008 1:28 PM EST

Either you don't seem to get what I was saying, or your being sarcastic. I'm hoping its the latter...

Cube November 5 2008 1:47 PM EST

OB, the reason TV standards are significant is it's what people are used to.

However, I agree with the rule it's great that it raises standards to civil talking, but we need a clearer definition than "PG!".

Cube November 5 2008 1:50 PM EST

And yes I completely missed the other point. It was not used to insult someone; it was used as it is in a common phrase.

Rizy November 5 2008 1:50 PM EST

how is it a non pg word if it was in shrek..

Adminedyit November 5 2008 3:51 PM EST

until i am told otherwise by the powers that be i will continue to enforce the PG rule regardless of what your opinions on what is or isn't PG may be.
