    This forum is restricted to users 18 and over. Every attempt has been made to prevent access to those under the age of 18. The normal ROC does not apply in this "no holds barred" forum.


    This is what Siege forums should be !!!
    We should be able to say what ever , when ever.
    Siege Forums should be 18 year old + ONLY too ...
    Then maybe we'd be able to just let it all hang out sometimes...
    I know sure as hell I'd like to just say what's really on my mind sometimes.
    It's not like we don't have our trolls. I'm sure we have trolls from
    "no holds barred" forum here too.

    I guess I found a place where having a opinion counts for something
    and I can blast off sometimes on whatever floats my fancy.
    Say whatever the , well you know ! LOL :D

    It should be here for us too.
    Really though , how many of us are below 18 ?
    I'm going to be 35 this June.
    I never see any kids in game ever and I
    shouldn't but I assume most of us are adults.

    This gaming forum is meant to be family friendly. One you would not be scared to open up at home with children around. One you could open up at work (if work rules permit) and not be fearful of repercussions.

    No Holds Barred is what it is. I do not recommend it for anyone. It has a different set of rules as far as the RoC goes. Truly, enter at your own risk...

    They are not real fond of UO there either.

    *chuckles* Indeed Kat. That is what kills all of those other forums. The free for all forums like Siege.whatever...

    This forum will be safe for work and the family home.

    It's novel and kinda funny for a little while, but it gets old fast. Even threads where there there is a good opportunity to debate a current issue, ultimately end up with twelve pages of back and forth FU matches. lol

    Hell hath frozen over indeed.

    I remember BV being no holds barred and it often got out of hand. I would rather see the mods remove the personal attacks here and stop locking good argument threads. That and the nicknames; I mean is Sakie really gonna get too upset if we refer to him as Foreskin? That and Lord Runmore are two of the better ones I have seen:).

    Every step towards the middle means people have to make a choice.

    "Do I want to post here? Every time I do I get flamed."

    Elf... People can type anything. I can make a list of stupid myths that some here hold as truth. Well, really they don't care if it is truth. It is fun to type. It gets folks riled up.

    Seriously. If you want to experiment with such a forum. Go try it. Siege.whatever is dead. There is a reason for that.

    Many of you dislike any sort of authority, moderation... some call it censorship.

    If this forum was not moderated, there would be like twelve of you posting here. Vortex, Petra, and I do this as a community service. If we did not. All that would be left here is poo flinging monkeys.

    *folds arms* Here, we are civil. At least until I catch you.

    The forum ran fine and was one if not the most active shard forum with little to no moderation. You are giving yourself way too much credit...la

    Ever since I have been on the DarkFall forums I have
    really noticed what it means to be able to say anything.
    These forums are great , don't get me wrong but when
    everything so black and white here it's so restrictive.

    "Posting of pornography, racist or otherwise discriminating remarks, threats to cause physical or mental harm, extreme offensive language, material that breaks any law or otherwise totally unacceptable posts or links to pages that contain the aforementioned material may result in an immediate ban from the forums."

    Using this every time you feel like it conflicts with you morally
    or personally is taking away from our voices and freedoms
    of expressions. It's not fair moderation if this is used as
    a blanket term every time to suit your needs and not the forums...

    All I have to say on the matter. Close it , lock it whatever ... La

    We have OT in the topic for threads that are OT. Maybe NWS should go in the topic titles for threads for things you family folks would want to ignore.

    If you don't want to read it, don't click it. Just because a select few can't handle adult discussions does not mean we all don't want to see them as a part of these boards.

    Yeah... I didn't know that TALKING about smoking weed was against the ****ing law. Thank judge judy for bringing me up to speed.

    :dunce:

    I'm sure talking about talking about smoking weed is also against the law too... damn, I'm ****ed.

    Who's law? In China it's against the law to argue politics. In America censorship is against the law. Noone said it was illegal to curse near children.
