When a member posts the name of this board or it's url, either on the forum or in a pm, it's converted to "Bunghole" or some other derogatory name.

Says a lot about the folks who are running DO at the moment.

On Eskarina's "open letter to wizer thread on DO, Nikke posts I think Wizer is waiting for you to log on at the bung hole

Nikki did not write "bung hole" in that post. I have received pms asking why she would say that about a board she is a member of. I don't think she even realized her words were changed.

Ironically enough when DO first opened and I joined chaos40 over there, I put this board on standby and put a large message on the main page here directing members to Daoutskirtz.

Nice, huh?

Thank-you for the explanation, wizer.

Yes, it would be odd if Nikkie would refer to The Matrix as a "bunghole", but then again from this perspective you never know.

Well... you know the saying... no good deed goes unpunished.  I often feel like that.

I found out about the word filter months ago when a member was looking for a link for this site.  Yep, bunghole was the word used as well.  Even in PM's, the same thing. 

I don't get the word filter thing. Do they(and I mean the powers that be over at DO) think that their site is all that, and that they have to be so childish to have to have their members find another way here?   crazy

I find it plain stupid!  wtf

I never called this place a bunghole.  I did notice the filter name change after I had made my post (no - not immediately after).  As for my opinion of this site or any other - you lot have seen my posting style, do you really think that I'd hold back my opinion if I saw something here that irritated me or that I strongly disagreed with?

Oh and for anyone that tried to imply I deliberately badmouthed this place?

2. Failing that please go choke on it!

No one is saying that Nikkie, and I don't think anyone believes you would do that either.  I had no idea it happened when I posted the link....it was brought to my attention by the other person who received the link in the PM I sent. At that time I had no idea there was a word filter.

I find nothing wrong with your posting style. You tell it like you see it, and I respect that!

The point was someone ELSE put THEIR words in YOUR mouth.

What if next time, it wasn't just WORDS they put in your mouth?

Think about that

It would not have been difficult to modify the word "bunghole" once you noticed it. Of course, knowing that the term that you originally specified triggered the result ("bunghole") you would have simply needed to make a complete change to that term, forgoing your original attempt and intentions and, hence, not having the revolting result, "bunghole", display as a reference to this site, The Matrix.

Maybe you should put a filter in place here that changes DaOutskirtz to "Fuckshits"
Just a thought.

I could, but I think this is one of those times that "discretion is the better part of valor".

That word filter is just one of the many things they did "wrong" over there...the last thing I want to do is to repeat their mistakes.

Especially since many of those mistakes finally caught up with them.

True. But it'd be good for a laugh. Maybe "Romper Room" instead?
