"We do not allow posts about [banned subject A] or [banned subject B]. Though we strive to offer uncensored content, we must ensure that entries are not offensive to the majority of our members. You can edit your question, remove any sexually explicit parts or profane words, and resubmit.
Thank you for your understanding, and for helping us keep GirlsAskGuys a safe, helpful, and informative place!"
I think it’s a joke. If you want to censor things, have the guts to say so, or at least don’t claim that you’re NOT censoring.
People can join or leave GAG at will, and GAG already has many social conservatives. So if a majority of GAG users tomorrow were to find discussion of same-sex marriage offensive, should that be banned? According to the justification given, yes.
“You can edit your question, remove any sexually explicit parts or profane words, and resubmit.” That’s a joke too. How can you ask a question about [banned subject A] or [banned subject B] without mentioning the subject?
“safe, helpful, and informative place!" There’s nothing unsafe about the intellectual discussion of a topic, and discussion is by its nature helpful and informative.
