    Avatar titles

    I don't want "CK Grandmaster" under my avatar. I want "Neanderthal half-breed". I cannot find where to make this change.

    If you're half Neanderthal, what's the other half? Or are your halves both different kinds of Neanderthals?

    I wonder if Neanderthals had racism.

    What happened to my reply to KB? What was it deleted for? There was no swearing, no obsenities, no sexism, no racism, nobody was named as/for anything, nothing that it could be deleted for?

    Fes up who ever deleted it and say exaclty why you did it.

    I recommended it be deleted as it did contain very obvious swearing, obsenities and sexism. I was not offended but I saw no value in the content and did not want to marginalise other BB users.

    Context, Barry, context.

    The swearing was of the "f***" type.
    The obsenity was canabalism.
    The sexism was not at all sexism since the context was caveman behaviour.

    Try this: Don't be a proactive PCmeister. Wait for a complaint. If there isn't a complaint, then you know what the acceptable standard is - it might not be what you think it is.

    EDIT PS and further, if you want to say that a post having in your opinion, "no value", makes it a better candidate for deletion, try deleting the whole F***ing 'who is cl thread'.

    Barry, what have you got against Matty man? I am guilty of all these 3 things. Yet I don't recall you deleting any of my posts. What's going on mate?

    should we "lose" a thread which has lost its "thread"?

    Matt,

    WELL SAID

    I shall leave it to you to create a poll on the matter.

    ps

    A little "histrionics" from the Mexicans might be next to go under the knife if you get your wish.

    Yes, but in greater volume, variety and gratuitousness then the norm.

    Cannabilism of reproductive organs, yes.

    Sexism is sexism. Caveman behaviour can only be surmised from the evidence. I don't know if anyone has surmised that much.

    No, I don't wait for a complaint. I moderate according to the guidelines of the board. The "value" comment was related to the gratuitousness of the obsenities. As you say, it all has to do with the context.

    Amiel, you sail close to the wind but don't often cross the line. Matt has the unfortunately pleasure of being a team mate of mine. Caesar's wife must be above suspicion.

    I set it 1000 posts and then promotion now, so Matt go to your "edit profile" in user cpanel and you should have an option to change it.

    Not big on weekenders. Even in Wollongong. Although I have played in the Grade matches last year and two years prior to that. Didn't see you in those.

    Damn, I was just preparing to set custom at 5000 too. Jeo, look in the control panel and tell me what you think of my new titles.
