mk... many of us are not saying we're offended by the joke, just that it had no place on this forum. If I said "All blacks are no-good criminals" or "women's only use to cook" (which is completely false), how do you think that would go over?

And people have a right to get offended... it's really not up to you to tell people what they will be offended by and won't. And it's not like this was just a little passing comment, it was a derogatory joke aimed at mexicans.

Anyway, I think the joke was removed for good reason, even if it is considered funny by some :]

Our moderators do there best to weed through the scramble of posts and remove them as they see fit. No post is deleted, they are moved to a bad threads forum which is only accessible to the moderation team, they are then dealt with as we see fit. Some may have found it funny, others would have got offended. So regardless of how people feel that your post was removed, it WAS removed for reasons within the TOS. Try not to get offended if your post(s) get removed, they are just doing there job. Heck they have even removed a few of mine and i own the site... LOL! :P

All I really want is to see that Bad Thread Forum. Now that would be funny.

Zoe is right I won't let a woman in my kitchen at all LoL Hey Mk-ultra Zoe is being passionate about something she believes in and that shows in what she posts.So How can you decide what is too damn far? or not far enough? or funny or racist?I never got to see the Joke but I am glad I did not. If it is gone it would have been offensive to many folks not just people of mexican Background.Hail to the mods for keeping it real and clean for us.

Well I was speaking about the people that lost thier lives to pure racist belief's (yes there were a lot more in the Stalin Hitler period)Many of those were only war related and not purely out of racism.Even still one was far too many Such a lesson taught so long ago and some of us still have never learned.

To mk-ultra and anyone else who thinks that joke should have stayed up on our forums....

Please understand, that the joke in question is not suitable in these forums. it is against the TOS, and was deleted just like any other post that breaks ssnakess.com terms.

The fact that some people might have NOT felt it was offensive is not ssnakess.com's problem and we will continue to delete any threads like these that we feel should not be shown on our forums.

Like hip said, if you cannot understand why that post shouldn't stay up, then you probably never will. You can have your own opinion on a matter, but dont continue to post and drag this thread on, when its very clear why it has been removed. You surf these forums for yourself, the moderators have to surf these forums for EVERYBODY, all the time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to make sure everybody enjoys our site without having to come on and read racist, sexist, degrating, posts, etc....

So in the future, if you feel like discussing an issue of why we have deleted a thread, take it up with us personnaly, rather then waste everyones time and space.

Please PM me personally, if you are still confused.
I would be happy to go over it again with you.

Thanks,
Grant
