Let him out! He's cute and probably doesn't proof read the stuff he posts.

He's innocent for goodness sake. We have all failed him.


GurKhan21 Mar 2017 8:21 a.m. PST

Oh for heaven's sake, what's he accused of this time?

Disco Joe Inactive Member21 Mar 2017 8:24 a.m. PST

"probably doesn't proof read the stuff he posts"

Just to make it clear then it is okay not to proof read what one posts? Just to go ahead and post it. Is that what you are saying?

Tacitus21 Mar 2017 8:25 a.m. PST

I'm sure he meant to say< "Shiite storm" and was discussing ISIL. So, at worst, wrong board?grin

Yes. Because Bill's off sick for a few days.

Otherwise, if you are contributing just a little of your original stuff then it is encumbent on you to make sure that it contains no profanity. Children read this stuff! That's what Bill says.

Buttloads or PoopStorm would work in this case!

In more ways than one…or TWO…for that matter!

Todd McLeister Inactive Member21 Mar 2017 9:48 a.m. PST

Leave him in there. He knows the rules.

Cyrus the Great21 Mar 2017 10:11 a.m. PST

He's been incarcerated on a similar offense before. He's a hardened criminal!!!!

Todd McLeister Inactive Member21 Mar 2017 10:26 a.m. PST

Exactly. He should serve a full term for once.

alien BLOODY HELL surfer Inactive Member21 Mar 2017 10:27 a.m. PST

it's a fair do for just copying and pasting and not thinking nor checking what you are copying and pasting. anyway, he knows where the secret tunnel back out is. :-)

In my best Mr Burns voice:
Release the Tango

You know he's a bot right?

Or if Sean Connery (007) says it:

Blashfemmy, Mish Moneypeny!

14Bore21 Mar 2017 12:27 p.m. PST

Awl give him a break

Legion 421 Mar 2017 2:08 p.m. PST

Yes, let him out ! I have not checked what he has done, but it could not have been that bad !

Just checked … looks like a typo or even auto-correct. That happens to me frequently !

Dave Jackson Supporting Member of TMP21 Mar 2017 3:42 p.m. PST

Agree with Todd

Earl of the North21 Mar 2017 3:45 p.m. PST

Having seen the original post, yeah fair cop Tango quoted it with the profanity included……my stance on the release topics is pretty much always the same, if you did the crime do the time without getting out early based on popularity.

MajorB21 Mar 2017 3:53 p.m. PST

Hoist by his own petard?

JMcCarroll Inactive Member21 Mar 2017 4:06 p.m. PST

But… But… what will we read without him?
He is my favorite Bot!!!

Legbiter21 Mar 2017 4:07 p.m. PST

He lost my sympathy when he posted some Bleeped text-link to conspiratorial twaddle about our infant future queen giving the Nazi salute. He's not getting it back.

zoneofcontrol21 Mar 2017 4:51 p.m. PST

Oh, what a Tango'd web he weaved.

Hurry back Armand. We're saving your spot in line to get cake and ice cream.

PrivateSnafu21 Mar 2017 5:54 p.m. PST

The thing about it is that he will still have just as many posts as normal. We'll get a flood once he is out. I'm sure he is fine with doing other stuff for a few days.

Mako1121 Mar 2017 6:04 p.m. PST

Free Armand!

Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian21 Mar 2017 7:42 p.m. PST

He's cute and probably doesn't proof read the stuff he posts.

Note that he corrected it in the title (not enough!), but not in the text… frown

jowady21 Mar 2017 8:33 p.m. PST

My understanding is that the anti-profanity filters are supposed to automatically filter out this sort of thing and replace it with the "bleep". In fact, a few months back someone went to the dawghouse because they themselves replaced the profane word by putting symbols where the vowels should be. My understanding of the explanation at the time was that the punishment was because they had avoided the profanity filter. So it seems that you can be dammed if you do and damned if you don't.

Mako1122 Mar 2017 1:29 a.m. PST

I think that's one of the major laws of physics.

Free Gert too.

Todd McLeister Inactive Member22 Mar 2017 4:35 a.m. PST

Free Gert too.

No. Don't.

daler240D Supporting Member of TMP22 Mar 2017 8:23 a.m. PST

So now I'm confused. Does the profanity filter not work?

sjwalker38 Inactive Member22 Mar 2017 11:46 a.m. PST

Who is brave enough to test it out?

Texas Jack22 Mar 2017 12:42 p.m. PST

IŽll give it a try:

damn Bleeped text Bleeped text hell

Edit: the first of the two that were bleeped was the word that got old Gert in trouble last week or so, which means it has since been re-added to the bleep-o-matic, while the second word had to do with the sexual act.

sjwalker38 Inactive Member22 Mar 2017 2:53 p.m. PST

Bleeped text

OK, hardly profane, but it's a start to test the bounds of acceptability and knowledge of British English.

Wow, 1/3; that was a bleeping surprise

Hafen von Schlockenberg Supporting Member of TMP Inactive Member22 Mar 2017 5:12 p.m. PST

1. I seem to recall Our Editor stating that a bleepomaticked (?) word may still incurr a Dawghouse sentence.

2. Armand has repeatedly stated that he reads neither the Hobby News nor the Front Page. Does anyone really expect him to read his own posts?

3. As I am currently drunkposting, 1 and 2 (and possibly 3) may be incorrect.

Ok let's give it a go
Shall we?
