So, what are the rules in that section?

The reason we have that rule for the forum at large as I understand it is for legal compliance - you cannot have an area freely accessible to minors and post porn there by US law. Otherwise Seth gets a free trip to make the acquaintance of a friendly fella in a small room with very little in the way of furnishings, courtesy of us. Angel

As long as we have an area set aside for porn and legal compliance is taken care of the no porn rule is not necessary in that area? Probably would need a real lawyer to confirm since I'm some jackass sat on his butt in SA and not a real lawyer Tongue

Sorry, I think you are missing my point. I was asking what the bounds are in that section, and do they conflict with other rules.

We need to sequester it, but we also need to define it.

Don't spam, don't stalk, the usual. Porn allowed but gotta tick ye little tiny boxy thingy that says you're legal to view it in your home country (or alternatively, checkbox says that you view the porn at your sole risk and if you get beheaded it's not our fault).

I don't see how a conflict with other rules could arise really, and apart from being in compliance with the law (to protect Seth's anus and the little kiddie-poos), I don't see that we need to be too worried about our *own* rules for the section as like the rest of the forum it would be mostly down to mod/admin discretion. If some situation arises we can deal with it the traditional way by having a massive bunfight and never speaking to each other again. (Well, never typing at each other, or typing at each other but making snarky remarks about how we're on each other's ignore lists).

RE: Area69 for Adults(and Gwyneth lovers) only
Oh wait, methinks I see through a glass darkly...

Personally I'd be happy to still not see actual image porn. I mean, as much as I admire members I don't wanna admire their members.

Maybe restrict things to textual stuff for now?

I think if we were gonna set it up prolly a lawyer would need to be consulted to advise on what measures would be legally sufficient to satisfy US law that the membership of the 18+ area was adequately protected. And if porn was restricted to text only that might be easier.

Someone said we would sequester it but all the other rules apply.

That is what I don't think makes sense.
  • It is stated that we have the no porn rule for legal reasons, i.e. under 18 exposure.
  • If we sequester the thread to 18+, then that reason no longer exists for that thread.
  • Pornography is not just images.
  • So, is porn allowed in the sequestered area? If not, why not?
  • And if it is not allowed, then why sequester? Consider
  • The thread as it is now already has posts that are pretty raunchy, some might say pornographic.

Anyhow, I have tried to point out that the issues are:
  • Is there a sufficient demand for an adult section?
  • If so, what are the guidelines/rules for that section? How will it be moderated?
  • If not, how does the forum team plan to moderate the current thread? It's pretty raunchy - NSFW, NSFY, etc.

The US law on internet pornography seems at best unclear, and at worst in complete disarray.

Chas, it's not about porn. We want a place where adults can discuss sexual topics without worrying that someone underage is viewing the conversations and/or participating in them.

There is a demand. That is why we are even discussing the idea to begin with.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

I wasn't expressing my opinion, just what was stated as the reason for it.

However, I think the ban is wise as it takes away a parental objection to minors being here. We want to reach them.

Imagine Ato's mother's reaction had she seen even the Sexy Banter thread. Shocking
