Hello

People now keep on posting topics about jokes which are just plain trolling and not being funny. I know everyone's humor isnt the same but in my and other members' opinion, these things should not be allowed.

Opinions?

You should provide an example of those threads.

As a side note, 1st Amendment doesn't apply in this case.. In case you weren't aware -_-

Being a privately owned website, our Community Rules are what governs what is acceptable or not here. What is amusing to one member may not be to another, but that isn't enough to take action against the poster. If the post is truly spamming, our staff will take action against the offending entry. Anyone can also use the Report function to alert staff, if there is a concern.

I agree completely. There are a couple of people specifically that seem to use the "Jokes and Funny Stuff" as a dumping ground for anything. A prime example was a thread titled "toothbrush" and the post just said something like, "where did I put it?" It was blatantly not a joke, and that is my issue. I can understand a joke that - in my opinion - isn't funny, that's fine. As the forum states, humour is subjective. But if I start a thread called "I like bungee jumping" and then post a picture of someone on a space hopper, it's obviously not an attempt at humour.

EDIT: That's a good point, Barney. I'm going to head to J&FS now and start working my way through the threads with a report button.

Only 58 posts and you poke a stick at the hornets nest :)

Even if some of the jokes arent that funny... they are still a break from other boring tasks...

I'm curious as to why you've quoted my posts given you've agreed with what I said O.o

But that's something warwagon would find hilarious!

Well, we all have different ideas of humour. I can only applaud that.

That being said, just because the first ten replies are denigrating the poster does not mean the intention wasn't to provide humour.
I am referring to Turions' joke about the brick, I remember the original joke from way back when, which was a very long winded story. So I will admit that I laughed at the potato line.

Also, Warwagons jokes are funny just because he posted them, you already know they'll probably make no sense. Who else could have become the butt of bad jokes, seriously? I mean, now we have a warwagon scale. That's funny!

Anyway, that's me out. Need to sober up! :shifty:

The thing is that warwagon's jokes are that jokes. Even though they are horrible, as said, humor is different for everyone.

But there are threads like Intrinsica which contain NO joke, in any way shape or form, and are just blatant spam. Those are the ones that need to stop.

For?
If it's the Turion joke, go here. The original joke that I can remember had no reference to a potato though.

i think people need to sort of get over themselves though, one mans joke is another's suicide note! :laugh:
