So it doesn't matter if it has a warning on it or not. People will still click it and view it.
That's a good point.

ComputerForums.org is a "forum". What borat_sagdiyev posted was a thread.

Please make this distinction. If this forum was closed, David would disable ALL posting on it!1

Yes you're right, but we all know what he meant. We're all clearly refering to the threads, I guess, he should change the thread title.

Look, here's my opinion:

If you are going to put some nasty stuff, warn them and put a basic description for weak people, so themselves, can post their opinions. I'd find this better.

I agree, i think if there is a warning it should be ok.

One thing we could do tho, is make a special area for those kinds of threads. to keep them compleately separate from teh rest of the forum. Kind of like a "Viewer beware" section.

i think threads should be allowed with warnings. some of the stuff is important. the no, just no thread, for example, i didn't know about any of that stuff. i think it's nice to have a variety of things in the social lounge even if some threads require a warning for weak stomachs.

it's frustrating to have 1 in 10 threads be closed. people use the internet at his/her discretion. i understand that the forum needs to be kept in order, but i think some things that are being closed should be allowed.
