SPLOOFUS BLOG

I'm concerned about the Sploofus thought appearing in the top spot at 11:35 a.m.EST, posted by a person who joined on 3/14. When I read it, I felt as though I am at a Hustler site, or somewhere even more raunchy. It does not appear to be appropriate to post that type of offensive [to me, at least] comment, even though the Blog instructions say post what you want.

Ok, I found it...I of course no longer see anything remotely offensive...but am very, very curious. How does one search for 'old' thoughts?

There are several up there now--all by someone who joined today, so I assume they are the same person or same group of weirdos.
I understand that the point of a blog is to write your thoughts on whatever, and if they're controversial it should be kept in mind that it's the blogger's opinion. But this blatant sexual nonsens is ridiculous and shouldn't be allowed.

Hello, everyone.

These extremely inappropriate messages appear to originate from the same individual's computer. Justin has been away but will hopefully check in soon to deal with this situation. In the meantime, when you see these profanities please try to ignore them or to bump them off the page.

Thanks for your patience.

I just reread my post, and my last sentence reads kind of snotty. I didn't mean for it too, so I apologize it it came across that way to anyone.

I think it reads fine. Thank you for helping us keep this place kid and family friendly.

As others have said, it is up to the rest of us to post more appropriate messages to "bump" these tasteless ones of the list as quickly as possible.

To each his own I guess...but really, wouldn't you guess someone would have something better to do with their time than to reregister for sploofus several times just to see their own dirty message??

IF you see an offensive blog.
1. Report it...with the user name
2. Post something, even "Hi!", to push it down
3. Tell a friend and have them blog on too. Three blogs and it is gone from sight.

I think that if people are going to post stuff
like that, especially from day 1, they should just be blocked from this site, if that is possible. That is just my opinion, of course.

I can't imagine they'll ever be back. Seems to me they just created the name to post the blog and we won't ever hear from them again.

Maybe these thoughts for the day need to be approved by the editors before they pop up. I know it seems like censorship, but if it is the only way to keep this site family-friendly, then I am all for it. The editors wouldn't have to edit for spelling and all that fun jazz, just weeding out the inappropriate stuff.

Sploofus IP records and access logs tell the tale well enough. The offending accounts have been terminated and the system changed so that only the thoughts of Gold and Platinum members appear in the "3 Most Recent Thoughts" area.

My apologies for the apparent indiscretion of this aspiring individual. There are indeed young Sploofusers who need to be considered at all times!

As a side note:

HAVING A GOLD OR PLATINUM ACCOUNT IS NOT A FREE PASS TO POST OFFENSIVE OR INDECENT CONTENT. ANY SPLOOFUSER WHO POSTS VULGAR LANGUAGE INTO A PRIVATE MESSAGE, CHAT FORUM, WORDROUND SHOUT, THOUGHT OF THE DAY OR OTHERWISE WILL INDEED ABSOLUTELY 100% WITHOUT FAIL IRREVOCABLY HAVE THEIR ACCOUNT TERMINATED WITHOUT NOTICE AND WITHOUT REFUND.

Thank you!
Justin
