    Exclamation NEFF site format change...

    I'm thinking it might be time for a small change.

    I try to allow the free speach thing here and for the most part of it, think it's great. I think I'd like to tone it down slightly though.
    I have no issue with profanity, religion bashing, political talk, etc... But everytime I log into this site I'm turned off by what I see. It's not friendly ribbing, it's not friendly roasting, it's not remotely funny anymore, it's just trash talk (Trailer trash talk). Most of it sounds like a little kid telling a joke and getting a quick laugh but then the same kid knowing he got a laugh the first time, continues to tell the same joke to the same people over and over again.

    Don't get me wrong, some of the stuff is funny but I think it's time to start focusing on quality a little bit. Post after post is a beetle bash or a bash from beetle. It's tiring to read, it's not funny anymore, and it's kinda pathetic.

    I don't mind having a joke at someone elses expense. If you can't laugh at yourself for some of the stupid things you do or may have done, you don't belong here in the first place. We're not here to cater to sticks in the mud.

    Who's with me on this?

    I don't know if your serious, and I have doubts. But if you are I say it's about time.

    You could just remove Simms, he's the root of the problem. I'm serious though.

    One thing I don't want to do is lose the fun we have here. Have fun, break balls, lose the hatred.

    I'm serious but I won't make any moves unless the majority speaks. So far only a few responses. We'll give it a few days. If the majority of the users are on board, I'll follow through.

    I don't mind joking and I don't mind jokes about various races/religions/ethnicity but I think the stuff about the Jews in the ovens isn't something I prefer to see on NEFF. How many polocks does it take to change a lightbulb is one thing, The Jews in the ovens isn't funny although I do have a funny experience with it. I was in a bagel store (Jewish owned) one day and the guy making the bages was very much a Jew. So we're talking and I ask him how many bagels he makes a day and he says, check this out. He opens a door and there sat this huge oven so I said to him, "That's a big oven you've got there". It was so innocently said but you could tell he didn't like the comment. Anyway... If you think Jews in the ovens is ok, well... you're entitled to enjoy whatever you like, just don't post about it here.

    You're the worse offender. You don't call, you don't write, you don't send me flowers anymore. You used me for a free boat ride then severed all ties with me. You're a boob; a big boob.

    I don't understand, I strongly support what you're trying to do. This really had nothing to do with what I had said, which was removing Simms. He is the one making the sick jokes about Jews and and has made many other sick comments, and the sad thing is he doesn't know when to stop. I was completely serious about removing him if possible.
