Words now in the CENSOR list and why...

Recommended Posts

I read the whole thread and I agree with it.

 

How come I can't access the website still? Cookies are enabled and I tried with other browsers... this is quite annoying.

The site is switching back to lyla.com and is already hosted in another country.

 

This is good news that you are migrating the site to another country. This will make it very difficult for LE to obtain warrants to search the site and its members.

Mod,

I have a question that I don't quite understand or if I'm understanding the new rule correctly.

 

"1) No one can ADVERTISE that they offer prostitution related EXTRAS if you offer this off the site that is find as long as you do not LINK to a site offering such things or offer them here. To conform to the new laws we can not to allow you to ADVERTISE such things here on cerb or advertise a website or blog or ad somewhere else that offers such things. If we find you are linking to a website from cerb that offers such things we will need to BAN your site from linking from cerb."

 

What does this mean? "If we find you are linking to a website from cerb that offers such things we will need to BAN your site from linking from cerb."

 

1. Does that mean if we have banners/links on our personal websites that link to an ad with a cerb censored word or something other than time and companionship, not necessarily a menu but the G or P experience or stating you don't currently host and has no mention of cerb and has nothing to do with our membership here, can we not advertise and/or have our personal website link Banned?

 

2. Does it mean that we have an actual link like our Twitter account that has a censored word on our profile linking from cerb to a place that does not have the same compliance rules as cerb? From what I see or have always thought is we can't link other sites with reviews and such to our profiles (may be) and ads anyways. I've never done that and keep each place separate besides banners/links on my personal website.

 

What does linking from cerb mean?

 

Thanks in advance,

Lexy

The link at the bottom of your signature... if it links to a site where SEX is sold the link will be banned from being seen by other cerb members. Time & companionship websites are OK :)

Thank you! I don't like being unsure or second guessing myself. When in doubt, just ask.

I am on other sites that do comply but there will always be advertisers who try to circumvent the system and do, I see it daily. If the sites have the time and companionship rule and are in compliance, what other advertisers do should not effect me or anyone else that is advertising within the rules and new law correct?

The sites that don't comply I won't use anymore, I see no traffic or loss from I will simply delete my profile. Plain and simple!:icon_smile:

This stuff has me back on the coffee, trying to go back years and change, remove and delete ads. In the end, I'm happy to do it and to be and remain apart of this community right here with my site staying and being linked!

All my Love and Support to Everyone,

Lexy

I'm having issues with the censors. I know the overall changes are a huge ordeal and pain in the ass and still a work in progress, but I think something has unintentionally gone awry. I don't appreciate the way the censors are automatically changing words to other words, and also affecting words within other words. Including not just new posts (which we can preview and change before posting as needed), but every single post on the site, and posts made weeks or months ago that we can't edit now. It's making people's posts make no sense and look like idiots. I was reading a post I made a few weeks ago that made sense at the time, and completely innocuous words I wrote are now changed to other things and what I said doesn't even make sense now, and I can't edit it. I would rather see dots everywhere and let people figure it out than see things like in-call changed to Porn-Friendly or cli-cking changed to cloading and uplo-aded changed to upfuned, cli-ckable changed to clickable (those are actual examples). Most of them don't even make sense. I accept, understand and respect the need to actually censor words, but automatically changing words to other words to in people's posts after the fact is putting words in their mouth and it's weird. There must be a solution.

 

Also, the new words don't actually show up in the "Preview", you only see them after you actually post live.

I certainly appreciate your post... I too support the need for the operators of this site to ensure that they do not breech any laws but the current situation with the censoring is I fear going to have an unintended negative affect on the site.

 

I spent about 45 minutes the other day trying to get the system to accept a corny humorous post about what super hero we would be. It was not overly sexual yet time after time it was rejected... i ultimately had to input it one line at a time until i found all the offending words some of which were just crazy. Not everyone will be as addicted as me so I think people will just say F... it.

 

Let's hope we quickly settle into a better place sooner rather than later.

 

Just my Opinion

Yeah. I've actually given up on a couple of posts now because the censor insisted that I had included proscribed words, and I read and re-read my post but couldn't find the culprit.

 

Another post that I did ultimately finish took a while to fix (and the problem certainly wasn't on the word list). I almost included a note at the bottom of that post about "you wouldn't believe how long it took me to post this because..." but it kind of sabotaged the substance of the post itself so I struck it off.

 

And yeah, it's embarrassing to read some of the weird Franken-posts of the past that are now a weird collage of the original text, substitutions of whole and parts of words, and newly inserted phrases. Sigh.

 

I will also say that... this is changing my sense of the place and making me second- and third-guess myself as I post. I'll work on that, since it's up to us to sustain the community if we want it sustained. But I definitely feel an off-putting level of scrutiny and fear, and it makes me annoyed at the fully intentional chilling effect of this messed-up legislation.

 

I also realize that mod will already understand everything I'm writing here and is enormously more frustrated by the whole thing than I am. I'll try to come up with some constructive suggestions so I can help fix the problem instead of just pointing it out.

Well I am not sure if I would prefer having strange word or having nothing to do words in lieu of the raunchy words I was using all the time in prior posts then having all my prior the law posts deleted instead!!!

 

Lucky thing I was quick enough prior this law to have copied and pasted them in a secure place!!!

 

I now find it very tricky to write an ad knowing the style I used to have and that I can't longer use!!!

 

Oh well I as well as others will have to live with it!!

The censors are a work in progress, I am always working to make sure we have the LEAST issues obviously. This month has been very stressful so cut me some slack and I assure you were are working out the bugs. Some people are still trying to post sexual services, if you would all stop then the censors would not be an issue right!? Makes my job (and the other mods) very hard. We will work out the bugs.

 

My comments were not intended to be critical of the hard work you continue to do... to be honest while I would not want your job i certainly appreciate the work you do on behalf of the community.

One thing that EVERYONE can usefully do: if you try to post something that gets censored, and you think it shouldn't be, drop Mod a PM to say what (and why). It's not just forbidden words that can be blocked; ones that are OK can be explicitly permitted. I've just sent him one about "cir-c-u-m-stances" becoming "cirstances". And if something that's banned isn't on the published list of banned words, let Mod know so he can add it.

 

The more we do this, the better the blacklist and whitelist will become and the less we'll have trouble with it. It's much easier for Mod to fix the bugs when he knows what they are!

I didn't realize that there was any words being replaced. That could be awkward. I did see some words replaced with explanatory phrases in brackets, and maybe people would prefer that to just automatically come up with any censor word. it is sometimes hard to figure out what the one problem word is, let alone a few lol.

Pardon my ignorance, I'm a newb.

 

The OP alludes to a list of censored words but I cannot find one. Is there such a list and if so may I have the link? Or is it just a matter of applying common sense?

 

Thanks HGR
