The Naughty Corner


The Naughty Corner is officially launched.


If you wish to join, please click the link below and select Naughty Corner from Current Memberships

http://forum.downsizer.net/groupcp.php

All requests will be vetted by the group moderator to ensure no under-age users join.


This part of the forum has only two rules:

1. No member of Downsizer outside the group can be discussed - ever!

2. Anything illegal, libellous or defamatory will be removed.

Other than that - fill your boots! There will be swearing, there will be heated debates, blasphemy and personal insults.

Any debates that get too heated on the main forum may also be moved into the naughty corner.

If at any time you wish to unsubscribe, click the link above again, and click the 'unsubscribe' button. The opt-out takes effect immediately, and you can always join again at a later date.

What happens to the contributors who don't feel the need to throw insults around when someone wades in and starts doing it on the main forum? Can the original debate be left on the main forum up until that point so it can continue without the 'naughty people's input?

Yes, we'll split it. It's usually quite easy to see when it starts, and all concerned will be asked Smile

Do you think it is a good idea encourage name calling? If I don't join, I wouldn't like to think I was being called names behind my back where I can't see Shocked

Penny will severely batter anyone who breaks rule number 1... Wink

I believe point one is meant to address that. As I understand it, if you arent a member of the naughty corner and therefore free to put your own pointof view across, being talked about is off limits

BYO
Nick

Bring your own Dink?

So many threads start here....

A person of Chinese/far-eastern origin
pejorative A North Vietnamese soldier
D.I.N.K: Dual Income No Kids, a financial term used for couples with no kids
A 'jerk' or 'goof'
A fully grown person who looks like they are still dressed by their mother
Military slang for a recruit in training, "Desperately In Need of Knowledge"
A British word for dildo
Canada, colloquial: A penis

Sign me up, how can a room full of these not be fun?

Join up. I doubt you will get called names just because you are on the list. I expect you will probably need to post something that warrants name calling first.

That's probably a technical hitch. When you're a member you can hurl insults at Jema for it.

Which means you can turn up, say what you think about someone, and then log out, and they will only be able to say anything back by breaking the rules. Smile

So do threads tha get heated get moved to the naughty corner or do we have to explicitly start threads we expect to get heated in the naughty corner in the first place?

Dunno.

I started one in DIRM the other day on phantom diseases, nobody asked for it to be moved, they just got offended about it.

Personally, I think some of the people on whose behalf threads are periodically locked, would miss the opportunity to become outraged on a regular basis.
Jamanda

No one got offended. Some people disagreed with you. Not the same thing,

One person said I was a bigot, another suggested I was mentally ill, and others misrepresented what I'd actually said. However, I'll make sure to post potentially interesting stuff in the closed bit in future.

Well, I clicked on Penny's link, and it's a blank page. Well, it's got headers etc, but nothing to click on to join! Crying or Very sad

Where it says 'non member groups' you click the drop down, select 'naughty corner' and click 'subscribe'.

If a thread gets moved to the naughty corner is there a stub left in the original location so people who were watching but not subscribers to the naught corner aren't left wondering what happened?

I think the intention is that it is continues in both but the sweary people continue the debate in the Naughty Corner. Not 100% sure but Penny may be able to confirm.
