There should be a straight up statement about what is the current BM policy at the forum.
It should be noted that this policy was designed to reflect the mean average of patrons’ opinions on the subject.
The BM Specimen is restricted to threads that it started or threads started by other specimen jars like itself. That way, if anyone wants to chew on a BM, they can find sustenance in any of its many offerings.
Should BM’s appear on threads started by sentient individuals, they will be deleted or more-likely, mickeyed with. Some serious discussions become hard to follow when broken up with endless stool-flinging post boxes… as some patron have pointed out
BM suspensions are usually brief, sometimes hours or a few days or until my electricity comes back on.
This policy is open to further debate and tweaking. I will have FUN with whatever policy makes the patrons happy. To me, the BM is an inert fixture, like a grease trap or child’s potty chair. There is no one there to be fair to.
Once it’s in a quote box, I’m hardly censoring anyone. Beside, shouldn’t there be content before there is an issue of censoring it?
