I distinctly remember front pageness to Tsunami Loot up, among other touchy subjects that ENRAGED the fuck out of some people. Personally I'm gonna be honest, I don't give a fuck on a stick about the people he killed, I care about our reaction, which is truly more important? Our reaction of course, what is ten lives we will never know and see? Cynical, maybe. Right, definitely.
Give examples of banned flash.
Right now. Go. Get typing,
Example 1: The OMGWTFN00B time trial
Example 2: My Livecorpse flash, which people were TRCIKED into flagging, and which was going to be deleted, most likely. However, due to a technicality that had to do with the entire flagged database being purged for getting too huge, I was allowed to submit it again. I did it very early in the morning when the whiners were away, and it passed.
And yes, although it did get through on a technicality, the tide was pretty much turned against me in terms of having it banned for offensiveness. And yes, that includes the admins.
Example 3: Not a flash example, but, as I mentioned earlier, my sigs. They were sort of a project of mine designed to see just how offensive i could get on NG without being censored, and without actually breaking any existing rules.
I got to my Nick Berg sig, which I released two days after he was beheaded in Iraq, and it was still a media circus. Then, of course, Wade came down and banished all of my sigs from the land for being too offensive.
So don't try to contest me on the offensive content issue. I know what I'm talking about.
