    Dear friendly creature mercurie,

    What in the world are you trying to say with this statement ??
    Sounds to me you saw pornographic images, talk, or similar things that kids need to be shilded from! :eek: :D

    And have they never heard the sound of passing gas...or belch ??
    I know that they laugh about it.
    Well it wasn't ME, :shifty: but I don't go: OH MY GAAWD !! :eek:
    Someone just farted. Someone just used a word we NEVER use in our language !! :eek:
    :D

    Hello ? I'm still acting ladylike, OK !! :rolleyes:


    Alright now...I'm Not going to quote everything or anybody - I'm just too lazy for that.

    But I have to say that I feel, that I'm being one of the "accused"
    of having been over-the-top, or whatever you want to call it.
    The reason why is for the last few months I was ALMOST the only
    female in 10F being my strange self. :D Goofy and yup, prolly a bit flirtatious. Especially with that one other funny dude, we all know. ;)

    But, and I've said it before, if this has looked like "over-the-top" to you....it did not to me.
    Maybe I have poor judgement.
    Then again, NOT....I was only having fun, and nothing else.
    EVERYTHING that didn't include my Animal-care thread, was pure Jokes and Play.
    IF and When I knew it was time for a PM, I would send a PM. Easy.

    Also: The remarks about ppl being in this chatting back and forth...
    Well...if nobody joins in....WHO's fault is THAT ??

    Nowhere did it say, that "my" conversation was ONLY between this or that person Alone ! Like I said. I use PM for things that are private.

    It all boils down to some people being being stuck up......thinking,
    what the h*** !! :eek: Duh! Some of us just like to be silly- S I L L Y once in a while, and I very much like ppl who can be that, and a bucket full of
    a goofy good sense of humor belongs to that.

    YOU could have joined in, But you didn't !!
    Because....? Too shy to butt in...? Too good for things like that ??

    I also understand that not everyone is like that. I tolerate that (of course).

    And also, I DO admit and realize that some posters that started a serious thread, got messy after a while. Someone called it a "Jokefest". *wink*

    Well...if you see my post as rude, please don't condemn me for speaking my mind. And if anyone feels "hurt feelings"....or the moderators feel the need to
    delete it MY and only MY post...go ahead. It would be only silly.


    The only thing I'm apologizing to is the so called
    "Inside Jokes" {I didn't even notice, but ok } and noone understood. :doubt:


    Yes, 10F will probably never be the same as it was.

    More and more Golf threads will emerge...and how to take care of Supercars. :p

    Actually, I don't mind anymore. Do your things, as long as you enjoy it.

    I'm staying in the background. I just hope I can continue posting my Animal threads, to educate. Yes, Educate !
    And playing those wordgames. I'm addicted !

    {O.T. sorry :oops: It's a force I cant resist.
    Today I saw again a dog outside in temps that felt like at least a hundred ! Alot of those people think dogs are meant to be out there, no matter what temperatur...:rolleyes: }


    So, there you have it. If you delete this... then it's only a sign that
    this forum is prudish and the right of free speech is very limited. :shifty:

    P.S. I do like the friendlieness here. But I also know that alot is being fake. Pah!

    Truthfully Yours, :)

    IMO. Another reason they keep the Forum free. The Members have little or no say in the matter of what is kept or censored. Most Forums I belong to, paid or free, follow the rule. If you do not care for a certian person or post, DO NOT READ IT. TZ heading back into the shadows. :cool:

    10 F, It is a abbreviation of Deck 10 forward. It comes from the world of Star Trek TNG. It is a lounge with a bar used to relax after a hard day at work. I don't think 10 foward aught to be held to the same standard of moderation, just be civil. No outright flaming.

    In my short time here I saw far less, if any flaming in 10F campared to the "Tech" related forums where many times egos came into play.

    As a few had mentioned above, we weren't asking for a huge change here, simply for a level of moderation in what was being posted by some people. And you know what, the two guys above that commented about the constant number of threads being taken off-topic in ten-forward by a few offenders, were absolutely right!

    If putting an end to the overly silly banter, one-upmanship posts, and the hijacking of other members threads with flirting and fart jokes bothers you so much that Wilders is no longer fun for you, then you aren't the kind of member that we want here anyway. I'm sure there are plenty of playful forums and chat sites on the web where you'd be much happier.

    Premise: If you never find yourself reading and/or posting in the other sections here at Wilders, then you are definitely in the wrong place.

    Wilders Security is first and foremost a PC security, computing and technical support forum. ten-forward was simply meant to be a place where the regular participating members, (i.e. those interested in the forum's main purpose - security, privacy, computing...), could take a break and discuss things that were off-topic to its main focus. Yes, it was meant to allow for fun, but as usually happens when people are having fun, some few begin to take it too far, and even after repeated warnings, continue to take it too far and wreck it for everyone else.

    ten-forward is now closed, and it won't be coming back in the form it was. If you "don't get it" then I'm sorry, but you were probably part of the problem.
