Its ridiculous! You ask a question in a section only to find its removed due to being incorrectly tagged. This tagging nonsense is ****ing annoying. The mods at TSR are not even bad compared to over at reddit, seriously may stop using the site its becomming pointless.

I guess it depends on sections you go to. I usually head to the tech related sections where geels like to exercise their internet power.

Forums should have freedom of speech. If you can't swear or abuse someone, where is the freedom of speech.

Why the ****ing **** can't I say ****?

In all seriousness though everyone on tsr uses the f-word and s-word, ridiculous that they censor it.

Hey

From my POV, when it comes to a subreddit there will be certain guidelines clearly displayed and it is important to follow them to make sure that the content is accessible for everyone. I agree that sometimes reddit moderation can be a bit OTT with regards to metadata and tagging, but they do it to preserve the subreddit and keep things properly organised. Whilst it is a common trend to see anyone on any online community to want the mods to do x and y differently, or to blame the mods for everything... it's very often completely out of their hands and the way the guidelines are enforced are likely up to those who run the subreddit or community.

I agree it's sometimes frustrating when you're just trying to contribute, but it's best to just submit again and follow the guidelines than get too upset about it, 9 times out of 10, the mod is just doing their job. No matter how annoying that may be.

This is an interesting response, but there is a reason there's a swear filter on TSR. Furthermore, TSR is a private site owned by a private company and ultimately they dictate what is and isn't acceptable.

The swear filter is in place because TSR is used a lot at schools, in order for the site not to be blocked in schools, words have to be censored. TSR actually ran a poll recently about the filter and people voted to keep it!

That's just how it is unfortunately. I sympathise that it's frustrating but what else would you expect them to do? Why bother getting worked up about it when you could just follow their guidelines? They have to enforce their guidelines evenly, so it won't just be you it happens to either.

That point became a little redundant when TSR started running articles sponsored by a sex toy manufacturer.

This really is nothing to do with me or the moderation policy of the site so I can't comment sadly. It is worth mentioning that they teach sex education in schools and there is nothing really vulgar about the article you have linked. But as I was saying, this is something you'd need to ask the CT, sorry!

I would guess that it is pretty much universal across all school that sex toy manufacturers would appear on the blacklist for the school internet.
