I got banned from RTG

The Sunderland Forum is all about local issues. The City of Sunderland includes Washington, Houghton and Hetton. However, we allow news, views and gossip from all areas surrounding Wearside.

Errrr since when was a no swearing rule introduced on the Sunderland Forum :shock:

It is my understanding that we have places of free speech or a speakers corner like the FTM forum and the jokes forum :?

I could be wrong but I think you will find swearing is allowed ;)

The rules are still there if anyone cares to look and rule 3 says:

3) Since you need to be over 16 years old to become a member here at the Sunderland Forum we have relaxed the rules on swearing slightly. All we require you to do now is act responsibly. You have more freedoms in the forums marked "speakers corner" which will be moderated less.


From that then it would appear that the Sunderland Forum does allow swearing :D

Looks about right but I was sure they came out and declared the Sunderland Forums and Blogs a "no swearing" area.

Maybe Bob or Quinny can confirm?

Yes, but only in the speakers corner. We were going to ban swearing altogether on the Sunderland Forum but decided to relax on the rules.

As long as the swearing is in moderation we may not ban it but if its misused then we may ban it.

Keep checking the rules.

But peeps can still see that whether they join or not so why not lock up those like others do?
