Polka Roo is a good one to blame, though...If not Card...Card's devious

Chat Room Etiquette
« Reply #135 on: March 25, 2006, 08:02:02 »
All,

I've noticed a disturbing trend in the chat room recently in that some conversations seem to steer towards innuendo and generally inappropriate topics. Please keep in mind that the chat room was set up for Army.ca users to discuss relevant topics and is subject to all the same Conduct Guidelines that the rest of the site is.

Running a chat room is a bit of a risk in terms of liability, so please let common sense prevail and use the privilege respectfully. If the chat room becomes a problem, it will have to be shut down. I don't think anyone wants that, so please keep it clean and dignified.


Thanks
Mike

Mike is there a way for the DS to lock down the chat room in case this sort of situation arises?

You need to be very careful about this, IMO.  If you turn the chat into a church meeting, it will perish.  While I find army talk infinitely interesting, if you want a think tank/study hall atmosphere, may as well shut 'er down now.  ALL chat between groups of adults degenerates to two topics after a while; feces and sex.

Yes that it does but we also have cadets and interested kids that frequent the chat room so a certain degree of responsibility and decorum should be maintained at all times. In essence folks police yourselves because what it might boil down to is have a chat room open when there is a mod around or willing to host for awhile. We don't want it to go that way and I know the chatters do not but.....

Then slap an "R" rating on the room, and limit the kids to the cadet forum... They won't see anything in the chat that isn't available to them multiplied tenfold on basic cable....  scan MuchMusic lately?

Just follow Mike's Guidelines as he posted above and you won't need to worry.

Consider this scenario:

1.  Mike Bobbitt creates army.ca with a chat room
2.  A member comes in and start talking trash and sexual innuendo
3.  Young person (perhaps no age in profile, so who knows) sits reading that content
4.  Young person's mother looks over shoulder and is offended that a site open to young Susie/Johnie has such content openly accessible to her offspring - and no 'agreement to use' criteria is going to be upheld when a minor made such decisions
5.  Mother calls lawyer or RCMP
6.  Mike Bobbitt gets served papers or arrested
7.  Army.ca disappears

Minor risk? - probably. 
Serious consequences (to army.ca) if it happens? - YES.

Is it worth that risk? - Not to those who wish to see army.ca continue.

I blame Card 11


She's always talking about breasts..  because she raising money for breast cancer.
And when she's done about that, its Brokeback Mountain and how we should see it.
Finally, she been talking about being married to Camochick, which ultimately leads to
lesbian discussion. 

I really am quite disgusted with chat myself and plan not to frequent it again
until this filth is cleaned up.














 :P

Firstly, I have been guilty as charged however, in my defence, I usually chat in an adult context when it is fairly late at night. Since Mike says clean it up I will. Roger that.

Secondly, Trinity whats with slamming Camo and Card? I am unsure if you meant it as a  joke or as some kind of example. I enjoy both of their comments.

We are as Kat pointed out adults and I have even mentioned breasts in front of my children now and then...usually in the context of, please pass the chicken breasts. However the mention of female breast is not a bad thing particular with Camo and Card's goal of raising money for cancer research.  :salute:

Yeah.. it was a total joke.. although it looked serious, thats why i put the  :P.

In fact, the irony of the post is I am responsible for the three items raised, not card.

But now that Shortbus has taken responsiblity, I am perfectly happy to shift the blame to him.  :P
