    I am not taking sides................ I am just being honest.....but there have been some rather near the knuckle abbreviations of certain groups on here over the last few weeks.....I feel they were all meant to be in jest...I may be wrong and by all means correct me if I am wrong...but I don't think any harm was meant by the majority of the nice people who post.

    I googled "aniciation" 2 and it came up as spelt like that so it must have been an incorrect spelling website!:laugh:

    FATASS?.........................Not sure about that one what does it stand for............For All The Aat S*** Spellers? and that was a guess just incase it's right!:lol:

    I fully agree with you..the point I was trying to make is that Mark12034...was not the only one to go that far................I am not saying he was right...the word he used was offensive but so where others....but I don't think he realised he had pushed it that little bit over the top.
  • farmergilesfarmergiles Font Of All Knowledge Registered Posts: 1,693
    I think that MARK 130273 should
    a) delete the offensive word &

    b) Be man enough to apologise to every one he may have upset.
    We can have enough fun with double entendre's without being outright offensive.

    I agree, look two years back at our old threads, months of near the knuckle stuff, but with some common sense, and a more refined sense of humour (in most cases, with the obvious exception of blobbyh) but never blunt and offensive.

    Yes Sir.....100% behind you, but I think he only visits the site in his lunch hour and may not realise at the time the issue he had caused.

    Well, I'll stick my head above the parapit and talk some sense....Mark doesn't need to apologise to me or anyone else. It was a joke, that didn't insult anyone specifically and was said amongst grown ups. There are more than enough actually offensive things in this world without us having to take offence at words. It is us that gives words offence, it is us that chose to be offended by them. It is us that decides 'where the line is drawn', should the poster who made up the 'FATAS' joke apologise as well, if I decide to take offence?

    Everyone needs to stop being so sensitive and 'PC' and live and let live, imho.

    Sure that was sense you were talking there Matt as I thought it was more akin to something often found in the nether regions of a male? I also seem to remember you caused offence to Dianne a couple of weeks ago so quite rightly, you'd be one of the last people I'd expect to moralise about taste and sensibility limits. If words were just words then the world would be a much easier place but sadly we all know it's really not that simple and words can cause great offence. This is not new age political correctness but basic human courtesy.

    This is the AAT forum, not Facebook where there are few moral boundaries and you can write whatever you feel at the time no matter how outrageous. While I don't advocate censorship, I do recognise a need for it and believe there are different contexts for different websites. While there are frequent double entendres on these forums, most people know where to draw the line and Mark clearly lacked self control when posting what he did.

    I also take Mark's comment as primarily aimed at myself as we've clashed on several occasions since he joined and while I don't find that word particularly offensive - indeed, in the right context it can even be funny sometimes - this wasn't one of those times and by putting it on this site, the line was crossed.

    I've been trying to stay out of this, but I have to say although I was not personally offended, it is a disgusting word and I am disgusted that a 'professional' had the gall to use it on a professional forum, especially in the company of women.

    Hahahaha, does that 'basic human courtesy' stretch to refraining from calling someone's post 'something often found in the nether regions of a male':ohmy: The hypocrisy in your post is very funny, but not quite as funny as you thinking that I am the one moralising :laugh:

    The 'offence' I caused to Dianne was down to the nature of these boards, she mis-read my posts as being serious when they were quite clearly in jest.

    Oh please, you quite clearly do support censorship and who are you to preach to us about 'moral boundaries'? Your 'morals' are not mine. We are all adult enough not to go around making a fuss because someone "said a naughty word":ohmy:

    Anyway, where is this mythical 'line' of yours that you have deemed uncrossable? And where is the word FATASS in relation to this line? Or refering the neither regions of men? Over the line perhaps? :001_rolleyes:

    What! Now you are NOT offended by the word, but merely by the poster who used it? So I was completely right in my assessment: the word itself is not offensive, you have decided to be offended by the word :001_rolleyes:

    Where does that appear on your mythical line of morallity? Is calling someone stupid okay by you then?

    Did you see me call you stupid? Where was it? You're not 'Son of Toadface' are you? And I have a "mythical line of morality"? Don't we all? Clearly, you know very little about me. I listen to thrash metal and swear like a trooper though I did give up the fags at Xmas FFS (note the subtle abbreviation rather than unsubtly spelling it out in full). I just don't do it on the AAT forums, mate.

    Okay, here's a challenge right up your London street. If you don't have this 'mythical line of morality' that I have and you don't advocate self-censorship like I do, then you'll have no problem whatsoever in writing out that naughty word in full in your next post, will you?

    I'll stay logged on until you do...

    Lol, of cause I have my morals. My point, mate, was that you are 'enforcing' your own morality onto others, you are the one saying when we should all take offence at certain language (ie when said on these boards, by posters you don't like, but not when its funny) but then use your own insults on those same boards, its hypocritical......understand?

    Just how stupid do you think I am? I don't advocate self censorship in a room full of adults, but you know if I write it out, you (or someone else) will just complain to the mods and I'll get the boot...errr....no thanks.

    I don't advocate self censorship, but the mods do...
