I'm not going to post the link to the FPP I had deleted last night again, but: where is the line I crossed? I thought it was funny; did some find it offensive?

I like fart jokes, but that's just me. I also didn't get a chance to read the whole link, so I don't have an answer for you.

I'm not going to post the link to the FPP I had deleted So your saying you want us to look it up the hard way?

If you don't post the FPP, then we can only guess what was wrong with yours, because we are lazy. I'll start. "We don't like links about pumpkin fuckers around here. It's not specified in the guidelines, but it's implied. Gord fucking is not a sport."

There's the answer to your question.

I bet Gord Fucking is a decent chap once you get to know him.

I put a reason in the thread. It was a bit gross, but the main reason it was pulled was because I couldn't understand it. If you want to take a second try that explains it better, that's OK with me.

So your saying you want us to look it up the hard way? Well, if it was deleted once, I'm assuming the pantheon wouldn't appreciate me posting it again. A reply from whoever deleted it would shed some light.

rcade, this is just strange...it's not showing in the FPP's I'm seeing at all, yet when I click on the link you just provided, there it is. If I'm understanding your reply, it needs context? Well, and the fart thing being gross, but I just copied part of the article's text, which would be easy enough to change.

Give it another go, Tex. I think it's hilarious.

We don't like links about pumpkin fuckers around here How about a picture of one?

it's not showing in the FPP's I'm seeing at all, yet when I click on the link you just provided, there it is. All fpp's are still there. You just have to change the number in your address bar to go directly to the deleted ones.

If I'm understanding your reply, it needs context? Yup. Something to give people a reason they should want to read it.

I think the post would be a fine topic if the conversation that would be precipitated by it would be something like: "Does sex make you a worse player?" And I would have to say - I have no idea. What's a sex?

I didn't get the joke, read the article and closed the window. Never was offended, but I wasn't inspired either.

posted by scully at 12:49 PM on June 22

I was inspired... to sit on people's faces and fart.

I am confused, I thought having sex was what made you a player er...playah?
