    i agree with the summary. there is no list because it varies. it's based on context. i'm not sure how much better it can be explained. if you need a full, all inclusive list, you've been given the basic skeleton of one. you understood this a few pages ago, but now seem to be confused further.

    FOR EXAMPLE: you can talk about death freely. it is courteous to add a content warning if you post about it in a thread where death is not the main or ongoing subject. the line regarding wiggling tends to lie where it leans less towards the subject of death and more "i want someone to die"

    When you came to this subforum to make this thread, there is a thread titled 'Welcome. Read this first!' which has been there since 2019.


    When you registered for an account, you agreed that the foundational premise of the community is it's not okay to treat people like trash. This is the premise under which your comments were moderated.


    I can continue to repeat myself! It's not much effort at this point, and I think this will be more useful to you than trying to nitpick the exact wording other mods have used

    like spock has repeated: our community philosophy is that "nothing anyone can say or do makes it okay to treat them like trash." this includes people you are not directly speaking to at that very moment.

    putting that into a firmer, clearer phrase in the hopes that you understand: it's not okay to treat other people badly.

    Ok, Wish. So, I originally wrote this as I typically do on this sub, which is that I do not correct any typos made and even occasionally mis-spell a word. But, due to you finding some posts harder to parse, I have taken the time to edit this to be as proper as I can.

    (The reason why I type the way I do is to help anonymize and compartmentalize what I post here vs my main identity on the forums.)

    To build on what Rigel said above, context is extremely important. So very, very important. So much so that a hard and fast rule can not be made on if there are forbidden words.

    For instance, if I were to make a post that said:

    Why don't you choke on a dick and die, you stupid whore.

    Where that could be posted depends on a number of factors.

    Here, it is being used as an example, and is spoilered and labeled. Therefore, posting it as I am now is probably okay. As well, who it is directed to is irrelevant, because it is an example.

    In my own vent thread, I have made it explicitly clear that everything is directed at myself (the thread is even called, "lol @ me") so I could theoretically post that (and in fact, have posted similar in the past) unspoilered.

    This is because the chosen subforum, title, and first post all make it abundantly clear that I will be absolutely terrible to myself within the thread, and users should beware.

    If it was towards someone else, or the target was unclear? Probably would be wiggled. This is not a punishment, as has been stated. The mods simply do not want people to feel as though they might have someone wish death in a sexually violent manner upon them, regardless of if it is true or not.

    And if this is still too long a post, then please pare it down to the bold and underlined words.

    I am confused further. Fucking none of this is making any sense and it's like trying to read through beer goggles but I haven't drank anything. Very very frustrating trying to understand shit lately

    >the line regarding wiggling tends to lie where it leans less towards the subject of death and more "i want someone to die"
    Ok there is a line! That's what I've been looking for. Crossing invisible lines is annoying.

    I did read that welcome post. It was very long and did not clarify much.


    That was helpful thank you

    Whether or not you understood it is irrelevant. Like all terms of service, you are bound by it by using the service in question regardless of if you read it or not.

    Fun fact: iTunes TOS states you cannot use the iTunes software to make nuclear weapons. Neat!

    Alright I've done some thinking, how about a compromise we can all agree on:

    Drug addicts need to get better or else they get the death penalty.

    Win win
