Yeah - I suppose, put simply, some people are more sensitive than others. That much is plain to see from the variety of reactions re the controversial threads, so yes some kind of user-controlled filtering would seem to be in order but it must work both ways - no good asking not to be offended in your viewing but being able to send out offensive posts.

Can I have mine turned completely off though please so that I might be offended to the max ?

So anything that may offend someone can go in there.

Probably won't work as every thread seems to upset someone, and if it doesn't the Admin deletes it.



Not a bad idea - but if the topic is made patently obvious (and I don't mean by just calling it a 'controversial thread' as some people may still want to join in the particular discussion) people then have a choice to open that thread or stay clear. (I realise that some people open just about every thread going too!!)

I don't think Admin take decisions to close or delete lightly - so the threads must be overly offensive, abusive or racist etc- in my view anyway!

You can for me :lol:

Age should not be an issue - people cannot stop being who they are or how emotional they get at certain threads, and granted, some may overreact just as some under react - but as the saying goes
