I suspect that there has been a misunderstanding over my post, which referred to the Have I Got News For You Jimmy Savile out-take, and was an humorous interjection and not an insult directed towards other members.

With hindsight a hehe would have made this clearer, but I presumed that the reference would be understood.

I'm sorry but I don't understand this paperbag

I can see you haven't been binned, but can I assume a post of yours has been removed?

Hello Paul. This the the text from the email that I received on the 4th of October:

Hi GC8,
You have been banned from General Gassing for 7 days for the following reason: Posting 'Rancid dripping puss-filled cock.' on the forums. Hardly the sort of behaviour we expect
Regards,
PistonHeads

As the HIGNFW transcript had already been referred to in the JS threads, I presumed that people would realise that my post was a reference to this, and not an insult directed at whoevers post immediately preceded mine.

Affecting Gassing Station > General Gassing > General Gassing only, where I receive this message if trying to post: [i]Please go and stand in the corner until you've learned to play nicely with the other children.
You will not be allowed back into this forum until 11/10/2012 16:46[/i].

To be fair, if a comment needs explanation as to why its not offensive it's not worth posting. Thing is, if that comment is viewed while at work it could cause issues and, quite frankly, it's just a step too far for the forums as it was posted and the reports we received confirm that.

The ban is fair in my opinion, it's only a temp forum removal so you can still access the majority of the site.

Shorpe. Usually censored, but as they say: assumption if the mother of all fk-ups! hehe

Have I Got News For You (HIGNFY). Series 17 episode 7. If you Google "rancid puss filled c*ck" then the first result will be a outtake transcript.

Im drawing a line under this now.

It is silly censoring Shorpe, though. And bh. Maybe it could be allowed in the pets forum?

Technically (code wise) we could, but it's more about having a work (filters etc) presentable site and they don't discriminate by context ....
