Looks like I'm a bit late to this topic! I'm of the opinion that a laissez-faire
attitude on the part of the mods is best. Certain things are obviously stated in the rules as being not allowed, ie. cracks, warez, porn, etc. Other things are in a gray area.
The "jack-off" thread didn't bother me in most of its content, although I did refrain from posting anything about my ideas because I didn't feel this was a place for me to discuss such things. If others wish to, that's fine by me, and quite entertaining IMO.
The "thong" thread? The line between "porn" and "not porn" has always been debatable. Fifty years ago women wore one-oiece bathing suits that had skirts down to the knees. Today L'il Kim can show up at an MTV awards show with nothing but a paistie over her nipple and it's deemed appropriate to show on TV.
Swearing in posts I think is alright, if it's not overly used, not so much because I find it vulgar, but because the words lose their strength and meaning when used too often.
Post-pumping doesn't seem to occur that often. We all do it sometimes. Like porn, how do you tell the difference between a "necessary" post and an "un-necessary" one? It is dismaying to look at the first page of GD and find half the threads to be something not worth reading, especially to those of us with dial-up which makes every page load takes forever, but I don't think the mods should have to step in. If I become bored here, i can visit another forum or not. Besides, sometimes a so-called "meaningless" thread becomes interesting or even meaningful.
Anyway, that's my two cents. I'd better stop before this post reaches curi0s_ge0rge proportions (jk there, c_g
