This is my thoughts on this and many know how I feel about censorship. I have enough government I don't need more. language is to hard to control it will evolve, it can't be stopped. Harassment can be controlled, And needs to be. MoToR
So you say you can monitor threatening content but not obscene content? Just clarifying.
For some reason this thread has gotten into people's view of freedom of speech and so on. I am more inclined to stop advertising posts and posting of league information on this forum. It dirties up the board. I personnally don't mind offensive language so much, I say a lot of awful things in my personal life, but not in front of my 6 yearold neice. This is the same aproach i take while posting(there might be a 6 yearold reading). Like it or not, yahoo has outlined what content can and can't be said in the terms of service, it's just up to them to enforce it and they aren't. Last year they would monitor it some, a lot better than they have been doing this year. I am encouraging yahoo to enforce it or outsource the modulators; ie: trusted posters becoming online modulators. The trusted posters would be a great option because 1) they are free to yahoo 2) they actually enjoy reading content and 3) has proven to be effective on other boards.
