    Geetings fellow Clown House readers.
    I'm taking this opportunity to share with you some thoughts. A little long winded, but please bear with me.

    You fellows have no idea how close we came today to losing the Clown House altogether.


    Because of posts like the ones in the thread that previously bore the title and which have been identified to the parties involved.

    Most of you don't have any idea what they were as they have been deleted by the Mod Team.
    The problem is the increasing amount of time necessary to ensure that those sick, racist, sexist, foul language posts get removed.

    The need for Mod activity in the Clown House has spiraled out of control.
    Most of the folks here are just having a good natured time. Sharing some humor, sharing a few stories and even sharing the odd funny picture.
    There are a select group, and not always the same people, who just feel that they have to push the envelope.

    Those days are gone.

    If the folks who can't keep a sense of decorum, even in the Clown House can't comply - Then they will be gone as well.

    The new standard for language will be that I wouldn't mind if my 9 year old Grandson and my sister the Nun reads it.
    The new standard for pictures will be that I wouldn't mind if my 9 year old Grandson or my sister the Nun sees it.

    If I look at your post, and have to think for even a moment whether or not it is ok - it's gone.

    You'll get a PM about it.


    Repeated problems in a thread will result in the thread being deleted.
    Not closed - deleted. Post counts accumulated in that thread will be lost.

    You regular decent folks in here can help with that by reminding new folks just what the rules are here at B&B.
    A little peer pressure goes a long way.

    The off color posts are done in an attempt to impress people here. Let them know you're not impressed, and let me know someone is being a problem.

    Over the course of the next few weeks I will be combining some repetitive threads.
    Older, unpopular threads will be closed and fall to the bottom.

    I personally feel that the Clown House has a rightful place at B&B - We can't be all about technical shaving specifications. We need a place to goof off a bit, and to just unwind and let our hair down.

    Feel free to make new threads, feel free to have fun, this is the Clown House.
    Keep it clean and keep it tasteful, this isn't a Road House.

    Please PM me if you have questions or issues. I will get back to you, but be patient as I expect a full inbox soon.

  3. No problems here, Phil.

    But, are the legit posts gone now too? I don't see anything in my subscribed thread list. Or is it just off in never-never-land for a bit?

    The real Monkey thread is out of sight being scurbbed and will return after clean up. I'm doing this in spare time, so give me a little bit.
  5. No rush, Phil. Just curious. Hopefully, it won't take too much of your time.

    Thanks Phil. Humorous exchanges seem to somehow lend themselves to escalation, which can mean escalation that leads to bad taste and bad judgement. I've had to push the red button on one of my own posts and "report it", or ask that it be deleted, because I realized I had probably gone a little too far and didn't want it left posted We will all do well to remember the edge of the envelope does not need to be pushed here. :thumbup1:

    Thanks Phil! Rob has been/is doing a fantastic job in here. Agree it needs to be pulled back on the right track.
  8. Randy, just as an FYI... you can delete your own posts so long as they are not posts that start the thread. Just hit the edit button, tick the "delete this post" box, and hit "go" or whatever it's called.

    Are you suggesting I need to delete my own posts more often? :huh:

    Just kidding, thanks Richard. I realize that now. I didn't before, when I asked for help. But that may be a step more of us need to be aware of - not you, of course - but me, and others like me, who get a little out of control in the heat of the humor. :001_cool:

  10. Oh... I've self-censored more than once, believe me.

    No more monkeying around, eh?!

  12. In all of your involvement in B&B did you ever dream that you be discussing and editing "The REAL Monkey Thread?" As opposed to any fake ones!

    This will have to suffice until Phil is done.

    25 pages done out of nearly 200.
    I'm not taking this kind of time with the next one that goes.

    I loved Ernie Kovacks. (classic TV re-runs of course)

    How about a Christmas song for the next time you take a break? :001_smile
  18. I am so out of it. I don't even know what a tempura snow monkey is.
  19. So are the LOLcats returning or not? :001_huh:
