It seems each time I visit halomaps there's an image with some offensive or otherwise childish captions, which aren't that funny and seem as though they were written by a 6 year old. Is it really necessary to have this on the front page?

Do you promote this image Dennis?

Most of those comments put the lame in lameorgame :-)
But I'm not bothered by them personally.

I promote rational thought. I promote diversity. I promote perspective in context and the possibility of other points of view. I promote tolerance and try not to be easily offended especially by unsophisticated or the generally inane humor of the young. And still I laugh at bathroom humor but generally crave a satirical twist of irony or intelligent observation of the human condition.

But what I don't do is expect to find intelligent well crafted humor on a user contributed website that is mostly frequented by 16 year old boys in hormonal flux filled with the angst of self discovery.

If you are asking if I think the caption is funny then no I don't, most of the captions I find childish, but that is to be expected given who is submitting them, you must keep context in mind. Is it tasteful; of course not, sixteen year old humor rarely is to people who are not sixteen. But is it so offensive that I have to huff and puff and try to make a big deal over it? No it isn't.

So to Summarize:
1) it is not funny
2) it is not tasteful
3) and in my opinion is it not a big deal that it is neither of the above (there is that tolerance thing) because it is transitory (context)

But what I do think is funny, due to my perchance for irony, is that you have advertised, promoted and made static the normally transitory caption you find so offensive and think should not be shown. But that is just me.

edit: I will talk to the Lame or Game guys and forward your objection to them.

Does honestly it matter? You're on the internet (of all places) for goodness sake. Yes it's unintelligent and vulgar (as stupidly made as that image is), but if something like that "offends" you, then I hate to see how you fair with nearly any other form of media in today's world (unless, of course, you are sheltered from such contexts).

Tip:
Learn to tolerate idiocy and childish acts. The world's gone mad, so you may as well either put up with it, or join the madness. ;)

Yes, but Dennis promotes free will. He needs to be civil when stopping 'inappropriate' content.

This site accommodates youngsters and needs to try to remove inappropriate content if possible.

There are also those who are actually 'mature'/'civilised' and find some content disturbing.

Then just try not to look at the pictures, or become harder skinned.
also the game in M for mature.

Age on the game is 15+

Forum aimed at the top of such a game should also be 15+ as any younger can't play. So I will say again.. who cares.

Consider this: We cannot swear in the forums so as to not be rude or offensive. Does this set of rules not apply to other portions of the site? Much less the homepage?
Yes it does and the Lame or Game website, who supply the images, have a policy of not allowing profanity in the captions which is why I agreed to have their images on the home page. When it comes to questionable or childlike and even tasteless humor well, that is one of those things where it will be taken on a case by case basis because what I consider inappropriate or tasteless I have seen others laugh hysterically precisely BECAUSE it was tasteless and inappropriate. It is a matter of taste and NO ONE wants me imposing my sensibilities on them. So far the images have not been so offensive, although they have been childish, that I will stop presenting them.

As I said I will pass on any objection people may make to Lame or Game and if they wish to change their editorial criteria that is up to them.

Leave them to believe in their anti-God. It's like how religious people worship entities as evils, alongside their true beliefs. ;)

Sticky this thread for maximum lols! Nahh, sometimes I find them funny and they're not really offensive. If they were really racist or something, then I might be concerned, but come on... It's 2012. People talk about crazy crap all the time. It doesn't make it right, but you have to tolerate it.

Why should we have to tolerate something that isn't right?

Well because it's silly to complain about something like that. There's no point in fussing over it. Like I said, if it was really offensive, then sure, kick up a fuss. But it isn't so just leave it.

I don't think anyone here really takes offense to that, seeing as the members here are on their period 24/7.

It isn't that professional though, but thats for Dennis to decide how he wants the site portrayed, not us.
