And the sad part I'd wager is that if you put an updated politically correct spin on that list, over half of it will still get you locked up (somewhere) these days.

At the risk of dragging this out, I just wanted to say.

Quote
If you find that funny ... ?

Personally I found that holocaust "joke" pretty offensive.

On a thread marked NSFW, I'm hesitant to remove it.

While I personally did not find it to be offensive...I do agree that it was far to close to the razor's edge. Just because the thread is marked NSFW doesn't mean that folks are cleared for takeoff to go sky-shotting over the top.

So granted while some of us do push the language barrier a bit at times. A modicum of restraint is to be reasonably expected...because this is not 4Chan.

Still, when i see such posts, like the political posts, i just think ah, maybe that's one of the reasons we seem to have less and less new people joining our family here..

Maybe I'm being overly sensitive -- I'm just more and more feeling like we have to do something to improve this place, and seeing posts like this doesn't make me feel good.  Perhaps if I felt like we were a thriving community it would just be a tiny drop in the water.  But I feel like we are treading water and things like this start to feel like we loading up our own pockets with stones.

I should say that ArizonaHot has posted tons of interesting inoffensive posts, so I know know offense was meant by this one, and I don't mean to single any one out.  Like I said, in the whole scheme of things, this isn't a big deal -- it's just coming at a time when i'm spending a lot of time worrying about how to make this site a more welcoming site for new people..

Mouser - thanks for your comments and for being so frank about your sentiments. I feel exactly the same way. I have not been a prolific poster here and have never coded anything, but I've always enjoyed hanging out here and have used and still use many of the programs and coding snacks on DC (though I'm sorry to say that I've never donated as I live on a shoe-string ) - however when, fairly recently, things started going a bit weird here - about the time you decided to create the Basement board - and seeing that many coders no longer contributed to the site I almost closed my account with a strong feeling of disappointment.

May I make a radical suggestion : that this board (...NSFW...) becomes a child board of the Basement, and then you slap a "registered members only" permission on the Basement. In that way those that wish to talk about gun laws, police states and so on can happily do so amongst themselves, whereas all other visitors can concentrate on what DC is about ?

Thanks.

There's already a humor board in the basement.  And it's already for registered members only.  And there's conversations that go on there.  It's just that some things are inappropriate for even a NSFW silly humor thread.  Not really sure why it had to be NSFW since we aren't 4chan as Stoic pointed out.

I'll have to check that out and see if there is any interesting and juicy politcally incorrect humor there. But what will Mouser do if that is the most popular section and other areas are a ghetto for the easily offended.

Most of this thread is perfectly fine and fun -- no need to do anything dramatic with it.

I think the real solution lies in trying to improve the rest of the site and working harder to increase the quantity and quality of the more genuinely useful and informative threads on the other areas of forum.

There I was, sitting at the bar staring at my drink
when a large, trouble-making biker steps up next to
me, grabs my drink and gulps it down in one swig.

"Well, whatcha' gonna do about it?" he says
menacingly, as I burst into tears.

"Come on, man," the biker says, "I didn't think you'd CRY.
I can't stand to see a man crying."

"This is the worst day of my life," I say. "I'm a complete
failure. I was late to a meeting and my boss fired me.

When I went to the parking lot, I found my car had
been stolen and I don't have any insurance. I left my wallet in
the cab I took home, there I found my wife with another man and
then my dog bit me."

"So I came to this bar to work up the courage to put
an end to it all, I buy a drink, I drop a capsule in and sit
here watching the poison dissolve. Then you show up and drink the
whole thing!

But enough about me, how's your day going?"

Reasons for Admission to the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, 1864 - 1889
 Jim
Quote
The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, subsequently the Armand Auclerc Weston State Hospital, was a Kirkbride[3] psychiatric hospital that operated from 1864 until 1994 by the government of the U.S. state of West Virginia, in the city of Weston. Built by architect Richard Andrews, it was constructed from 1858- 1881. Originally designed to hold 250 people, it became overcrowded in the 1950s with 2,400 patients. It was forcibly closed in 1994 due to changes in treatments of patients. The first to be committed was a female housekeeper. The hospital was bought by Joe Jordan in 2007, and partly opened to tours and other money raising events for its restoration.[4] The hospital's main building is one of the largest hand-cut stone masonry buildings in the United States, and, as Weston Hospital Main Building, was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1990.

I would proudly hang that on my living room wall, although it would probably go better with the black & white optical illusion style decor of my daughter's room.  :P

I was thinking that the funny part wasn't the animation, but the fact that there was a bench in front of it so people could sit and admire...

Well, in her bedroom, across from the bed, would be a perfect place to put it, so she can stare at it instead of counting sheep. Hanging on a wall, it wouldn't take up any extra space on her end table, like a lava lamp would. :P

Some frostbytes from Canada. I didn't want to attach all the pictures seperately so they are in the .pdf below. I got them in a email so there is no source link.
